Roper model # rs5agxnq00

My roper frig was manufactured in 2005, we notice that it now runs for a while and then stop working until you manually turn off the temperature to 0; leave it for a while and turn it back to 4 or 5. I suspect it is the timer for the defrost that might have goone bad. anyhelp will be appreciated.

Check the compressor and see if it is over heated. You can also check and see if the condenser is still clean. that's the coil behind, or under your frig. You will have to pull the frig out to see this coil. If its dirty, clean it and see how it works after that. If not you have a more serious problem and need a professional to look at it

The lower refrigerator section is not cold anymore

check to see if the fan motor in the freezer is running. all the cooling happens in the freezer and the fan is what circulates the cold air down to the refrigerator.. if the fan isnt running ,it could be a bad connection or a bad fan motor..on some models the doors need to be closed before the fan comes on so just push on the door switch to check .if the fan is running then a defrost problem may be the problem.. you mentioned you defrosted the unit. if the auto defrost isnt working, you would notice frost on the back of the freezer. there would be a lot more frost behind that panel that could block the airflow down to the frig. you would have to remove rear panel of freezer to clear all the frost and restore proper airflow..remember to unplug the frig before doing any work..

The divder between my frig and freezer is also hot

This is normal. Modern frost free fridges have heaters built into the front edge of the cabinet to help keep the accumulation of surface condensation and excessive ice build up on the door edges inside the freezer and fridge.

It is nothing to worry about, but you might have an energy saver switch inside the fridge section that you can turn "on" to turn OFF the heaters (energy saver means the power using heaters would be OFF when the energy saver is "on", turning it "off" means the heaters are ON.

But not all fridges have a switch to turn off the heaters, so don't worry, just accept it and don't buy a new fridge until you need to.

Hope that helps, best regards!

Ice maker is making ice but leaking alot of water under the fridge and in the freezer. What can I do to shut if off until I repair the ice maker?

pull our your frig. and follow the water line coming into it. the other end should have a valve on it in the floor or the wall. turn off the valve and that will stop any water from coming to your frig for water or ice making.

Freezer quit freezing


you can try this suggestion first.

if the compressor is running your ref. should be getting cold. Their is a defrost timer but when it is in defrost the compressor shuts off. I think you do have a leak.

any further question let me know.

the thump is your compressor shutting can try changing the rubber grommets but most likely your compressor is just going to be loud until it finally dies.

Water trickeling noise from the compressor area.

If there is a leak in the system you will notice considerable change in temperature of the frig. In most cases, if this is a leak, you will see a builup of oil coming out of the leak as refrigerant has oil in it. You may be able to hear it or smell the refrigerant. What is commonplace in alot of systems is this noise. When the compressor is running, it is biulder pressure inside of the refrigerant lines. There is a low pressure side and a high pressure side while it is running. When the compressor shuts down after achieving the set temp, The system will start to equal the pressure on both high and low sides of the system. Actually the compressor will not start again untill these pressures are equalized or at least close. The noise you are hearing is most likely the refrigerant in the system while the system is equalizing the pressure on both high and low sides. I have noticed that some systems are more noticable than others. Unless you notice considerable change in temp of your frig, it is probably the equalizing of the system. I am not sure what the corrosion on the line would be without actualy seeing it myself but I have never come across a frig that had a leak and didn`t lose all or enough of the refrigerant without it being noticable inside the frig itself. For it to be a leak the temp in the frig should be or very soon will be noticably warmer.
