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.

My roper refrigerator freezer ices up and the fridge is not cold. Model RT14BKXKQ05


Hi,

You have a defrost problem, could be the timer not advancing, bad thermostat for the defrost system or an open heater. All of these items will cause this issue you have. the only way to find out is to test all the items. If I have to guess, I would replace the thermostat first, but its a guess as I am unable to test them. Good Luck

Usually you will get a sort of whinning/screeching noise from the fans inside the fridge/frezzer when they are not working properly but you can also get that howling noise from the fan which cools the compressor for the fridge/frezzer which is usually found underneath the Unit. All you have to do is find exactly where the noise is coming from and remember unless you have a dog that likes to lock itself in the fridge for a joke then most noises that come from fridge/frezzers are only made from the moving mechanical parts and sometimes leaking refridgerants but not often.

Water in refridgerator


Have a look inside fridge compartment (especially the "roof", if it's a top-mount freezer) & see if you can see any ice build-up (look inside vents that allow cold air into fridge from freezer section. Also, if top-mount freezer, look inside the freezer compartment for ice build-up on "floor", inside vents, or on back wall. These symptoms, combined with water dripping from lots of the "roof" of fridge section (in a top-mount freezer model), can mean several different problems, so best to re-post with more info/symptoms included.
If there's no ice build-up (& the dividing area between fridge & freezer sections isn't particularly cold, which otherwise might indicate hidden ice build-up), it can be as simple as a plugged or obstructed drain tube, which is VERY COMMON. Easiest solution for this latter problem is to use a flexible plastic tube (think similar type as attached to aquarium air pumps), stuff it into drain hole, and blow on the other end. Sometimes you have to blow quite hard to clear an obstruction or complete blockage. If you can't clear the drain tube, it's likely a different problem. Again, a re-post with more info/symptoms will help narrow it down.

My Kenmore refrigerator is not cooling properly. Freezer portion works fine but not refrigerator. Came on suddenly.


I had the same problem. The frezzer worked but the fridge was not getting cold. What I have learned is that the frezzer make the fridge cold, so if the frezzer is working then something is blocking the cold air to get into the fridge. Most likely ice. The air come in at the bottom of the inside of the fridge next to the frezzer. Pull everything out of the frezzer, then unscrew the plannel that runs along the back and you see if there is ice. If so turn frezzer off and dry out the frezzer. I used hot water.

Water leaking from the roof of the fridge inside.


That is condensation. The rubber insulator (gasket) on the door may be damaged or worn. The door does not close and seal properly.
Make sure that nothing that is on top of the refrigerator is "hanging" into the path of the door seal (like a bread bag ponytail).

Also to consider:
Door hinge is loose so that door is not aligned for proper door seal.
Refrigerator is not "level" so that door is not ...
Freezer is defrosting (heating elements will warm up the coils, so "dew point temperature" may have been reached.

Check the door gaskets.

There is a restriction in the condensate drain. You should be able to press a piece of tubing against the drain opening (inside fridge) and BLOW (NOT ****) through the other end. this should clear the obstruction. The obstruction would be slimy goop, sooo again -
