Question about Roper RT12VKX Top Freezer Refrigerator
My roper top freezer refrigerator has a pipe that runs along underneath. The pipe is cold to the touch and it is getting wet and dripping water on the floor. What should I do? Thanks. Moses
Thanks for your help! I have a tech coming tomorrow so I'll let you know what the problem was.

Hey moses, how old is the unit?? what it sounds like is that the unit is low on refrigerant, if the pipe that is cold is one of the coper pipes that are part of the sealed system. if this is the case there is not enough "gas" to keep it compressed untill it reaches the evaperator in the freezer compartment. Some units have a sealed sytem warranty for 5 or 10 years. parts and materials would be covered but labour is not. you need to be licensed to handle refrigerant so you will need to call a tech.if it is a plastic tube it is the drain and there should be a catch tray under it that allows the excess water to evaporate. hope it helps.
