Question about Roper Refrigerators
Hi, I have a 7 years old Roper RT14 series appliance, without the ice maker, and I have had to unplug it three times in the last 3 to 4 months or so. It seems that ice builds up behind the panel at the back of the freezer compartment, eventually clogging the ducts that send cool air into the fridge part. It's been a little over a week now since I've done the last thaw and have removed the lower vent-panel and already see a build-up. Also the fan seems to not be working in the freezer compartment. I'll add that there has been 2 or 3 power outages between September and December, in case it could have fried anything.
You are having an automatic defrost problem. there are 3 components in that system and it could be any one of the 3 .
There the timer (most common) heater, and the bi metal terminator the heater and bi metal can be tested with an ohm meter and the timer if mechanical can be rotated into a defrost

I really believe your adaptive defrost located inside the fresh food compartment and inside the control panel is defective. It puts your refrigerator on a timely defrost and if defective this problem you listed in your post happens. Yes we may need to also check the defrost heater and defrost thermostat but with my experience with that type of Adaptive Defrost Control is famous for its failure.
ADAPTIVE DEFROST CONTROL Part Number 61005988 You can find it located on two of my websites. Some models like yours came with a Defrost Timer. We will need just look inside the control panel and see for sure. Here is a photo of the Adaptive defrost. If you should need to contact me please send an email or try to answer here. Problem is I don't get notifications when someone comments. firstname.lastname@example.org
