Question about Roper RT12VKX Top Freezer Refrigerator

Sometimes water is flooding to the bottom of the refrigerator.. I know the drain hose is stopped up. I found one end at the bottom in the back. However I can't locate the drain in the freezer to blow out the hose line..

The drain is behind the panel inside the back of the freezer. It is under the coil. You may need to run hot water through the drain line to defrost it before you can blow it out. Good luck

Ice collects on bottom of freezer, and melts on the floor


Hello, Thank You for using FixYa. I will be helping you today.
You have a frozen drain. You need to remove the back panel in the freezer. Do not touch anything behind the panel and dont poke anything. You need to remove as much ice from the bottom as you can. Then use boiling water to pour in the bottom section under the evaparator,I would put a towel in the unit to help catch the water. Keep adding new hot boiling water until the drain clears up and the water starts to drain. It can take a while sometimes the whole tube will freeze. You can add a duckbill to the end of the drain hose behind the unit to help stop this from happening part number 8055306 Just push it on the end of the drain line.

Ice is forming on bottom of freezer under basket Has been doing this for approximately 3 weeks Have checked water connection, appears OK Don't know what the problem is to attempt fixing it


The evaporator coils frost up in normal use and every eight hours or so the entire unit shuts down and the defrost heater comes on to melt the frost. This cycle last about 20 minutes. The melted frost drips into a drain pan and through a drain tube to the drain tray under the freezer/refrigerator where it's evaporated by the condenser fan.


Your drain tube may be stopped up with ice at the upper end because it drains too slow because it's stopped up at the lower end in the evaporator pan under the unit at the floor. It can get dust and mold in it. 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.
Make sure it drains quick enough to prevent refreezing. . The drain should be located below the evaporator coils on the inside of the freezer at the bottom of the rear cover.

My fridge is leaking from the bottom or the back i dont know which yet. but i see water on the right back corner on the floor. any idea what this could be


Greetings,
I guess, I need to know if its the floor of the refrigerator, or kitchen floor? if floor of refrigerator. Its most likely a drain issue..The defrost system melts the ice and that water flows into a drain. these become clogged from food particles and stop up. The water then travels the path of least resistence and ends up down inside refrigerator. The solution is to open up drain and usually all is well..

Now, if its just on the floor. we have to check all the obvious. it still could be the drain and water could be running out from under crispers onto the floor. So, check that first...if not, check the connections at icemaker valve (if you have one) again, check water line if you have one....make sure the drain hose is in the drain pan...sometimes the drain pan sits above the compressor and heat evaporates the water...these pans get a hole in them I hope this helps..let me know if you need any clarifications....Bruce

What does F20 mean


Ok, I found 2 solutions for this problem, I tried the first one,and it really seemed to work, but I think I will do the second one too. First, if you have metal flood safe hoses, you need to look for debrisblocking the filter at both ends. I kept checking the screens at thewasher end and not seeing anything, but there was debris located at thewater supply end, stuck in the flood safe device that is in the metalhose. Also, Flood safe hoses say to turn the water on to fullpressure, but sometimes that can activate the flood safe device, soonly turn your water supply on half way. Make sure that the hoses areon right as well, the flood safe device needs to be at the end with thewater supply, not the washer end. You will be able to see the device(it looks like a little sieve) inside the hose.
Another cause of this problem can be the filter IN your washer, itis located in the front just under the front bottom removable panel. If you have a pet in the house, definitely check this out, a lot ofhair gets stuck in that. Just unscrew the front bottom panel, and thenit is right in the middle at the bottom, a cone shaped filter. Get atowel, because there will be water in there, too. Check out this linkwithpictures: http://enginerdandwife.com/2007/03/kenmore-elite-h3-washer-error-code-hf.html

The drain line that removes water after the defrost cycle is plugged. Instead of draining down the hose and ending up in the pan underneath the fridge, it is draining to the back on the inside, ending up under the drawers. Pull the pan out from the bottom, locate the hose that empties water there. Blow air up it. Compressed works the best. It may be plugged with ice as well, so turn it off for a little before you try this, to thaw the ice. If this doesn't work or you cant do it, then you need to remove the back panel in the freezer compartment, find the drain hole and stick something in it, like a piece of wire to remove the blockage. A good way to test this, is after you have found the drain hole, pour a little water in it, it should pour out into the pan underneath.
