Roper Freezer Stopped Freezing

Last night, the icemaker on my Roper RT21LMXKQ03 started leaking, apparently where the water enters the icemaker in the top freezer. May have leaked for 15 minutes or more before I realized it. This morning, woke to find that the freezer is not freezing, and only as cold as the fridge. I only see a temp control for the fridge, so doesn't seem like I just bumped some setting. Could the leak have done something to the freezer?

. The most common problem is a bad start relay on the compressor. In rare cases the compressor may be bad. If you are mechanically inclined you can replace the relay yourself for less than 50 dollars. You will need model and serial number off of the unit and order the part by those numbers. if the compressor is bad you will need to hire a good service company

The water fill tube for the icemaker is blocked.


Replace the Dual water control valve found on the back of the refrigerator near the floor with a new one and thaw out the entrance where the water goes into the ice maker. Provide a model number found on the inside of the fresh food compartment wall and I'll try to help you find the correct part number for the water control valve. The water control valve is apparently leaking like a leaky faucet and it's freezing causing the problem

Roper refrigerator leaks


Good job! most people do not know about the evaporator drain.
I would check the tubing to the icemaker, icemaker inflow valve and, water filter.

Water is leaking in side the freeze


It's the pump for the icemaker/water dispenser. When it goes bad, it just starts pumping water into your icemaker until it overflows into your freezer. You simply have to replace the pump. It's happened to mine twice.

You can very easily replace the pump yourself in about 3 to 5 minutes, and the pump only costs about 48 dollars.

Here's a link to the cheapest place to buy the pump: http://www.easyapplianceparts.com/MultiModels.aspx?ModelNum=RS22AQXKQ&searchTerm=&RefineSearch=0

The first time I had this repaired, the repairman charged me over 300 dollars. I did it myself the last time. All I used was a pair of pliers.

Good luck!

I did some research online, and read that the Start Relay is most commonly the problem. My husband bought the part, (about $50) and reattached it to the side of the compressor....and was cold immediately! apparently a very common problem on these fridges.

Water leaking from freezer.


Either the inlet valve is stuck or the icemaker solenoid is shored.

Most likely the second one.

Kitchenaid superba icemaker leaking/freezing in freezer section


Your water hose that connects to the back of the freezer may be loose. Move the fridge out away and in the back make sure it is tightend.


Let me know if it helped :)

Roper Refrigerator - manufactured 12/99 - RT18DKXH W00


tata75,
Happy to assist you,

you said,
For the past three days, water has been leaking/freezing at an alarming rate. The freezer had about 2 inches of ice built up and the bottom of the refrigerator is holding water, too. Both crisper s were FULL of water. I don't know if the ice maker connection is broken or what. Looks like I have to cut off the cold water completely to the sink to get it to stop.

Sounds like the ice maker or its line is leaking the water to me. And obviously it will freeze in the freezer.

You need hands on service.
