Large Ice Build up on top inside back of fridge unit.


Could be the auto-defrost has stopped working. Most modern frost-free fridges have a heating element behind the liner where the cooling element is and the ice forms. Between the thermostat controlled periods of cooling the heating element should switch on for a short time to melt any ice that has formed and the resulting water forms into droplets that roll down the fridge liner until it is channelled into a drain leading to a tray mounted on the electric motor. The warmth from the motor evaporates the water and completes the maintenance-free frost-free system.

Possibilities are faulty wiring/connections, defrost timer, defrost element.

The defrost timer could be integral with the thermostat.

Some older fridges had a manual switch to start the defrost process.

Freezer getting tomuch ice,fridge doesnot gets cold


The problem you describe is very frequent. The fridge is getting the coldness from the freezer through a chant and the force of a motor fan Motor evaporator

Number: 173301 Substitution: 5300158289 part no. 26. So the build up of ice in the freezer is blocking the air pass thought and get the fridge cold. Also it may block the fan motor blades from rotating.


So the first you need to check is the heating element on the evaporator in the freezer department. This element might have burn out (and now is open circuit) and even f the defrost timer give instruction for start heating up the element is bad so the defrost is not performed. You just need to replace the heating element. Heater

Number: 178425-01Substitution:5317842502

Fridge not keeping anything cold enough anymore despite settings set to be cold. Freezer is okay.


If you have heavy frost on back wall of freezer, you have a defrost problem. Likely a problem with either your defrost control, defrost heating element, or bimetal defrost thermostat. I have no idea what kind of fridge you have or specific symptoms, so you could have other issues as well, such as a damper door not opening, a fan motor not running, or even possibly a main electronic control board.

Freezer and drain freezing up


you either have a blocked drain in the freezer or a bad, failing defrost element, timer.

If you have a manual for you fridge you can locate the place to check for blockage in the drainline. I you dont have a manual you can check online at searspartdirect and locate one.

The heating element for the defroster is located right beneath the freezer coils so you need to take the inner panels off the inside of the freezer to get to those.

You can replace the heating element and timer fairly easily. You should be able to buy both of them for around 90-100 bucks if necessary. But try clearing the draining first. You can test the line by defrosting the fridge and pouring some water into the drain and see how quickly it goes into the drainpan below the fridge.

Good luck and be careful.

Freezer is over freezing/ice-ing up behind the board {where all the wires/fans/stuff is} thus not keeping fridge or freezer as cold as it should be.


You fridge has a broken defrost controller or a broken heating element.

Go to Roper online to find your parts and then see if you can buy them either at applianceparts.com or ebay. These are good cheap ways to get your stuff sent directly to you!

Then, unplug the fridge, thaw it out. And while its unpowered and thawing replace the two parts. Refer to your units parts diagram for parts locations. The controller should just be hiding down underneath or in back and the defroster heating element is usually under the freezer.

Good luck and be careful!

Fridge freezes up


This could be caused by one of three things. Either you have a bad defrost timer or a bad defrost element, or bad wiring related to those two. Unhook the two leads to the defrost element and check the resistance of the element. If it is open, replace the element. If it reads resistance, replace the defrost timer.
