There is a fan down by the compressor that aids in cooling compressor and getting rid of the water that comes out of the freezer during defrost cycle. I am sure that you took the paper cover off the back of the unit on the lower back side so your unit might not have a fan. Now lets look at the fan inside the freezer is it running can you hear it when you open the door? Does the compressor make a clicking sound as it is hot to touch and trying to come on? get back with me ok ken

I have a Roper washer and model number is RTW4440VQ1. We bought them used setat an estate sale and they looked brand new...they were well taken care of.


Your electric valve (solenoid) for the hot side is not working, and you originally had the two hoses reversed.

We have a roper frig that we use for vaccine storage, the freezer does not stay cold enought for their storage; if we adjust to freezer temp for vaccines then refrigerator is too cold for storage


Good day,
Usually caused by the machine in a cool area or room, along with the machine not getting enough door action, both freezer and fresh food.

Domestic refrigerators are designed to be used as just that. Domestic refrigerators.
Normal kitchen temperatures, followed by minimum of 7 freezer door openings per day spread over 14 hours as well as 22 to 26 fresh food door openings over the same period of time.

In other words, it's not getting enough activity daily. Common problem in doctor offices.

The best model for that type of application in the past was the Amana bottom freezer model. where the primary control was located in the freezer, nailing the freezer temp, and the top controlled by a pneumatic damper controlling the fresh food section, but I do not know if their current model still uses that system.

One option,space permitting is a small chest type freezer added to what you have.

Refrigerator/Freezer not getting cold


Is the fan on the condenser coils spinning? (back side of unit behind the bottom access panel.)

If it is not, the heat extracted from the fresh food/freezer compartments is not being sufficiently dissipated.

As a short-term fix, you can aim a box fan (a regular ol' room/window fan) at the condenser coils.

Freezer works but frig is not cooling


I don't know this particular frig, but evidently the defroster doesn't work. Frost buildup has blocked the flow of cold air.

There is a defrost timer, under the frig, accessible from the front. You can turn it with a screw driver. Turn it till you hear a click. If the timer hasn't been turning, that should turn on the defroster, a heating element nested among the freezer coils. Wait half an hour and if it is defrosting, water should be dripping into the drip pan underneath the frig. If so, then replace the defrost timer and you're good to go.

If that doesn't make it defrost, then the problem is probably the defrost thermostat, in with the freezer coils. When the frig defrosts, the defrost heater stays on until the defrost thermostat gets warm. It should be open circuit while warm. But if it is open circuit while cold, it is bad and is the cause of your defrost problem.

If you open up the freezer coils, use a hair dryer to defrost. That is safer than hot water.

Hope you can fix it.

Frig runs but not cold


sounds like the start of a defrost issue. check the back wall of the freezer. there should be No Ice forming on that back wall from midway down or lower. If so, send me a model number and I can further assist you. I'm factory authorized for Frigidaire Appliances and am Confident that I can help you through this repair.

Frig and Freezer not working.


Beware I bought a Frigidaire side by side in 2006 and the compressor went out in March 2008, the warranty was out in Jan, and the repair man came out and said it was a 2004 model, you might have the same one as I had, they know the compressors are bad in the frig's and you only pay,$160.something if I remember. It sounds just like the problem I had, good luck!
