Question about Roper RT18DKXKQ / RT18DKXKT Top Freezer Refrigerator
The pan/drain under the coils in the freezer is frozen over within 30 days. I defrost it and blow out the drain hole, and it just freezes over.
I added a drain strap kit to the drain hole (alumnium piece that attaches to the heater coil and goes down the drain), but didn't help.
You will have to clean the drain,bits and pieces of crumbs lodge in the drain,and then the water from the coils from the defrost timer melting the ice from the coils is supposed to run down the drain,to the bottom of the unit,but it is freezing after it melts from the coils,cause it can not drain. melt the ice with hot water,and you may have to use compressed air,from a air compressor to clear it out,then it should work fine, I hope this was helpful,if so,please let us know,thank you.

Here's how I clean them out. Once you get the ice out at the top a little pressure with a turkey baster will usually clear it out. Flushing it out with hot water and clorox may help to kill any mold growing in the lower end.
Make sure it drains quick enough to prevent refreezing by pouring it full of water. It should drain fairly quick. If it's still slow to drain, try to gently pull it from the pan underneath the fridge to see if it's kinked. If it still freezer try a copper wire strap and make sure the upper end is in a position to get hot during defrost.
