Where is the water filter and how do I change it out?

I just got this fridge from my mom and dad, and they never messed with the filter in the fridge because they had a filter in the wall of the house. Where is the filter located and how do I change it out?

The Roper ref is basically a Whirlpool ref. The filter on a side by side unit usually is down the botton in the grille area slightly to the left of the center post. The grille will have a round hole opening, and filter should be there. The other place is in the ref section at the top rear right hand corner. The other possibility is that the unit may NOT have a filter. Not all units had them. If the unit is older than 5 yrs or so, ir propably did not have one and thus the external filter your parents were using. Or your parents took the filter out and the opening is empty. These units have an automatic by pass in them so they can be used without a filter or that an external one could be used.

Getting water down the back wall of fridge whether filter is in place or not.

Should still be under warranty? Pursue that route
It/s possible put a paper towel on back side of filter see if you can isolate where the leak is coming from. My guess is the filter isn't installed correctly.

The extra dollar is still in your pocket, you only gave a total of $2.00 back but you got $3.00 back from the store when you gave them the $100.00
That plus the fact that the problem didn't have anything to do with motherboards.
