Roper refrigerator Model RT18AKXKQ05 with water dripping into frig

(1/2) > >>

I have the above model Roper frig with water accumulating in the bottom. I have learned from reading many posts that the freezer drain is probably blocked. There is ice forming in the freezer as well. I watched the video on a Roper on this forum but mine is a little different. I have an ice maker and no bottom removeable tray. Does the ice maker have to come out to clean the drain? Thankful for any help :)

Model Number: RT18AKXKQ05

Hi,

Yes you will need to remove the ice maker.
Once the ice maker is removed you will be able to remove the back freezer panel.

Other then the ice maker and no removeable tray it's about the same as the one in the video.

Give it a try and let us know how it goes.

Is there anything I have to do to remove the ice maker other than shut off the water and remove the unit? I figure I need to loosen the three screws to the ice maker, unplug the connection and it should come out easily. Am I missing anything?

Yep, you got the right idea, but you will not need to shut off the water.
If you were going to remove the ice maker water valve in back of the refrigerator you would need to turn the water off. You will only need to remove the ice maker inside the freezer so you can leave the water on.

Unplug the refrigerator and remove the three screws.
Once you have the ice maker away from the freezer wall you will see were to unplug the ice maker wire harness.

Thanks for the help. All went well. Had to run the hair dryer for a bit longer than I thought. What causes this problem? It is a four year old frig and this is the first time it has happened. Should I expect this again?
And again I say thank you ;D
