Question about Roper RT18DKXKQ / RT18DKXKT Top Freezer Refrigerator
UNPLUG your appliance first! I'm not a professional but it makes sense. This is not my answer but someone else helped me with this same problem....so far its working, i'm in the process now as well!.. loosen the top 2 screw at the top back of freezer. Then remove the plastic backsplash by gently pushing down (by the fan) on the top because this is a pop in piece part. I slowly but gently pushed down on top while pulling it off one side at a time... it worked! Then i could see lots of ice down toward the fridge area so i poured hot water little amounts at a time till it was all melted. I also put a towel on top shelf of fridge to collect the water. finally all ice melted. Now i could see the drain which is clogged with ice toward the back of freezer. My freezer has a drain pan, i guess you would call it, that is metal of aluminum color not white. i then melted all the ice with hot water and slowly pulled out big chucks of ice shaped like the pan itself thru the two holes above the metal pan. Now i working on melting the rest of the ice in the drain hole (black hole) with my blow dryer. not recommended around water but its speeding up the process. hope this has a little more detail. I am so happy i am almost done! hope this works good luck!

Drain hole is plugged, I pulled up the plastic cover in the bottom of the freezer [Held in place by 2 screws]. Removed Ice maker [4 screws. 2 Up top and two on bottom]. Unhooked power to ice maker by removing plastic cover. Removed back panel [2 screws. 1 left and 1 right of fan]. Used a combination of boiling water and hair dryer to unclog hole that had iced over. Reassembled.
