Defrost Drain Tube on Roper Fridge
« on: July 07, 2010, 09:53:20 AM »

I'm trying to figure out how to defrost the drain tube on my Roper Fridge - Model # RT14BKXKQ05.
I have read the forums on how to do it but I'm really wanting a picture or video to make sure that I'm taking it apart correctly.
I tried to watch the Video: Refrigerator Defrost Repair but it has been removed.  Are you able to post a new video or pictures?

 Looks like to me the rear bottom cover comes off(25) then the air dam(23) then the back cover(16). Then you can use a garment steamer or hair dryer to clear the ice. I use a wet dry shop vac to clear them drains once I get the ice removed. Click on picture to enlarge.
