Question about Roper RT21AKXKQ Top Freezer Refrigerator
I also have a five year old Kitchenaid ksrg25fkwh04. I also had the water dripping sound for awhile and a few days ago the refridgerator stopped cooling. I had a Kitchenaid repair guy come out, and he went right to the compressor relay, a small square box near the compressor. He shook it and heard a rattling sound which meant the relay burnt out. We have a pet in the house and rarely cleaned the coils. The Tech says that this would cause the relay to overheat and burn out, saving the compressor itself.

If the thermistor sensor for the temperature control is going out that could cause the compressor the think it needs to keep running to cool the unit. The fan near the compressor should run only when the compressor runs. If the fan is running and the compressor isn't then you likely have a compressor start device problem or the overload is tripping from high heat, etc. That would make the compressor run (or try to) every minute or two if not just run continuously. Make sure all the coils under the unit are clean of fuzzy's and hair, etc. by doing a good vac. clean on them also. The compressor can be slightly warm to the touch but shouldn't be so hot that it is hard to keep you r hands on it for long. If it's around 130 degrees F, then it may be the start device problem and is in an overheat condition.

That is then the first thing you will need to insure is running. The fan can be removed and checked. Now if the compressor is not running I would believe you have another problem. You can hear or feel the compressor running and the fan is usually connected to the compressor wiring so they both should be running at the same time. I have seen the fans run for a short period of time after the refrigerator was turned off and then back on after cooling, so if stopped and starting of the condenser fan can at times trick you to believe the fan is OK
Hope I have been helpful, Sea Breeze
