Question about Roper RT18DKXKQ / RT18DKXKT Top Freezer Refrigerator

1 Answer

Our refrigerator (Roper RT18DKXKQ) smelled really bad for a long time, though we saw no spoiled food. So we cleaned it out, and noticed that there is water leaking, dripping from the ceiling of the refrigerator (from the foam area). How do we stop this leaking? I am guessing it is somehow coming from the freezer, through the top of the refrigerator.

Used wrong water filter. Now that we replaced with correct filter, there is a horrible odor in the refrigerator.


Hello Mary;

My name is Peter. I am a retired field service refrigeration technician.

Putting in the wrong water filter will not effect the smell in your refrigerator. At times the granules in a water filter will break down and get into your water dispenser and ice cube tray. This should not create a bad smell, just cloudy water.

Your plastic liner in your refrigerator has pores and holds odor. You have something in your fresh food section or freezer that is spoiled. Your fresh food section receives cooling air from your freezer. If you have a spoiled product in your freezer you will not smell it because it is frozen. But, as the cooling air goes into your fresh food section and cools down you will smell it.

Find the bad product in your freezer and discard.

With a 50% solution of white vinegar and water wash the plastic liner.

Now you can put a tray of baking soda in your unit, until you purchase deodorizers based on temperature requirements, one especially designed for the freezer section and one for fresh food section. These deodorizer are about $12.00 each.

Try Lowe's and Home depot.

Hi ; Not an expert on this fridge,

You do not need to clean the coils

But at the back of the fridge , there should be a water trap sat on top of the compressor that is linked to the fridge via a pipe.
It allows condensation to run out of the fridge to the trap, where the heat from the compressor evaporates it.

Its possible that food waste has travelled down the pipe into the trap and is creating tha bad smell

You could also check the back for anything else that may have arrived by default and is causing the smell

Not sure if it has a special way to move it : But its a heavy object , so a little extra force may be needed.

Take care and good luck

Samsung RF267 water tastes terrible. Filters changed twice and not helping


If new plumbing, system is flushing and may cause a bad taste or odd color.Has a food item spoiled?
Make sure that strong smelling food (for example, fish) is wrapped so that it
is airtight.
Clean out your freezer periodically and throw away any spoiled or suspect food. Place foods in airtight containers to prevent the transfer of odors.And also Flush out water hose from tap end to freezer with warm water And also clean fridge with wet cloth (with soap solution). And then clean with dry cloth. .Keep fridge door open after cleaning all compartments for 4hrs minimum, as fresh air could wipe out any bad odor in fridge. And then start using fridge. Hope, it's helpful.

Sounds like the condesor coil fan motor went bad and shorted in the windings or stator. It can be replaced fairly easily. You can get the mtor from one of the online part stores and install through the base of the unit next to the compressor. you should clean the area of lint while your down there, it helps keep it operating more efficiently.

I believe that you might have a coolant leak causing the chemical odor. You really should get it checked out by a fridge repair-person because it's not healthy to breathe in the fumes.
