Question about Roper RT18DKXKQ / RT18DKXKT Top Freezer Refrigerator
I recently moved this fridge (2004 unused, have no idea how well it worked). Was plugged in and cold when I picked it up. I transported it on its side and made the mistake of plugging it in immediately after righting. I have since unplugged it for 12hrs, then 24 hrs, but won't get cold. Fan comes on, but i don't think the compressor does (not sure). Any help?

Its a compressor issue.The procedure of this unit is as follows: --- The compressor starts then it cools the freezer section. When the freezer reaches its cooling level the defrost cycle starts functioning. In this cycle the fan in the freezer section starts running and the cool air in the freezer section is passed to the fridge section and the fridge section gets cold. The air from freezer to refrigerator passes from the section, in that section the damper is located.But as you mentioned that freezer section not cooling this indicates problem with compressor.when compressor cools the freezer section then fridge section gets cold.If freezer section is not getting properly cold then fridge section will not cool properly/.So the problem relates to compressor.-----------
If the compressor is not turning on or its again and again making clicking noise.Then there is a overload relay( its also called run capacitor).This part has to be replaced first and checked.Its a $15 to $20 part.Its located beside the compressor.If you notice click click noise then first get the overload relay replaced.Then see, if still the same problem, then compressor has to be replaced.-----------

A relay starts the compressor with a higher voltage and then quickly kicks out
It does a lot of clicking (trying to start over and over again)
If thats what is happening with yours
Its best for a tech to replace The relay but you can do it
Take your model number to your Local Appliance parts store they will have a diagram
showing you how to install the relay. Its called a hard start relay
I use part no ERP410 POWER START RELAY, CAPACITOR AND OVERLOAD all in one. (110 v)

If you were to take everything out of the inside of the freezer and look at the rear wall of the inside of the freezer you will notice there are screws on this panel so that this panel can be removed. Once you removed this panel this would give you access to the evaporator coil. If you look above the coil you will see the culprit that makes them awesome noises you enjoy so much. If you see any ice build up anywere in this area you would defrost it with a hair dryer. This issue is called a defrost problem that your unit is experiencing. This is due to one or more of three basic parts. Two of those parts are located right in the area where you have accessed the evaporator coil. You would need a multimeter and be able to perform an ohms test on each of these next two parts mentioned to diagnose which part or if both had a fault. The first part is called the defrost thermostat which is a small round sensor that is clipped onto one of the copper lines near the top of the evaporator coil. Here is a link to click that is the entire schematic for your machine if the last numbers after the q that you posted were 03 there are three models an 04 as well as an 00. The 03 has 3 more parts listed then the others. http://www.searspartsdirect.com/partsdirect/part-model/Roper-Parts/Refrigerator-Parts/Model-RS22AQXKQ03/0893/0165000?searchedModel=RS22AQXKQ&blt=11
you would then go into the unit section and click that as well your defrost thermostat is part number 35 and the defrost heater is part number 33 do the testing on these parts and if you find no fault message me back and I will explain more on the defrost timer or adaptive control due to the look up site just went down for maintenance. If you have any questions message me those back as well. Thank you
