We went away for the weekend. When we got back, the frig light was working, but the compressor and fan had quit. Everything in the freezer thawed out. After we had the frig door open about 15-20 minutes getting all the food out, the compressor and fan came back on by themselves. We called a repair man and he replaced the cold control, which I thought was called the thermostat. It has the long wire coming off it. It cooled over night, but compressor and fan stopped working again sometime the next day. We took off the top panel and wiggled the defrost timer, and the compressor and fan started working. It could have been from wiggling it or maybe because the door was open and the inside temp got to about 70 degrees. Is it the defrost timer or something else?

I first replaced the defrost timer kit (#482493) and kept the old one around for a while thinking I may have put the extra wIire on in the wrong place. It seemed to work fine so I threw the instructions away. We later noticed that the temperature control thermostat was acting up so I replaced that as well. Low and behold - the coils still ice up and the fridge side does not get cold. I've deiced the coils now 3 times with a blow drier and all seems fine for about a week. Can anyone please tell me where the extra wire on the defrost timer kit should go on a Roper RS25AQXFW02? I don't even remember what terminal I put it on. Also, would this refrigerator be considered a 'continuous run application, a 'cumulative version 1' or a 'cumulative version 2'? Just a little extra info - When the fridge was still plugged in, I had the cover off to get to the coils. I put the defrost timer in defrost mode (manually) and the defrost heater did turn on and started melting the ice. I have not replaced the defrost thermostat as it seems to be working - when the coils are iced over, I removed it from the coils and held it in my hand to warm it up. I heard (felt) it click once warmed up. Thanks in advance for any response. - Mike

Evaporator coils completely freeze over. Cleaned condenser coils and manually defrosted refrigerator. Week later it is frozen over again. Door seals look to be good. Think it is defrost timer, defrost thermostat or heater. How do I determine which one? Thanks

Hello, I replaced the thermostat, heating element and timer to repair a no defrost situation. Couldn't find a wiring diagram and now the defrost only works when I manually adjust the timer. What is the correct jumper position for my application? Thanks, Tony
