Question about Roper Refrigerators
Roper runs for long periods of time and ice accumulates; have to manually defrost. I defrosted this morning and it ran all day but just a few minutes ago shut off but I could not hear it defrosting.
The defrost systems is:
Start with the timer. It is just under the front kick plate. there is a knob you can turn it slowly.until it clicks off the compressor. then open the freezer and listen . You should hear the heater come on .. it will sizzle when it comes on ...
You will have to remove the back panel of the freezer to check the heater for and thermostat for continuity. Heater are the lease likely part to go bad... I always change thermostat and timers together.
let me know if this helps or we can chat if you need more help.
