About 2 months ago my Roper fridge wouldn"t cool properly in both freezer an on bottom.I advanced the defrost timer a bit and it helped,but,now it"s doing it again and advancing it didn't help.What should i do?
Check the rear wall of the freezer and see if there is frost build up on the wall. If so, you will need to test the defrost heater and the defrost thermostat. They should read closed for continuity when cold. You can test this with a multi-meter TJMA-DMT3. I will include a link at the end to assist you how to use the multi-meter if needed. If both parts are good, you will need to replace the defrost timer. Once the problem is repaired, you will need to thaw out the ice on the coils before the unit will operate properly. http://forum.appliancepartspros.com/oven-repair-including-ranges-cooktops/4810-how-check-continuity-ohmmeter.html
My refridgerator runs almost every half hour and my electric bill is going through the roof. What can I do?
Answer Hello KJ. Make sure the coils on the back are clean, and if it is cooling properly, but not turning off, replace the temperature control 2325700 in the unit.
When looking at the timer should you see the gears moving continuously or only during the defrost cycle?
Answer Hello Clark. The gears move so slow, you will not see them turning unless you mark a gear and watch the mark on the timer 2183400.
Defrost was not working. I replaced both defrost thermostat and timer. Defrost heater now only works when timer is turned to manual defrost position. Timer seems to be working and does turn off condenser fan on schedule- but no heat from heater element. What else could be the problem?
Answer Hi John. A little conflicting info... If you say the heater works when the timer is manually advanced then there is an issue with either the timer itself or the wiring. Is the pink wire on # 2 timer connection ? Is the Blk on the # 1 ? Is the orange on the # 4 and the red on # 3 ? It also is marked on the side of the timer. Timer part # 2183400. The heater should have 8-18 ohms resistance. It is part # 2006751. The defrost thermostat is part # 4387499. It seems like if the heater fully gets hot then you have a wire connection issue or a timer issue. Let us know what you find and we will continue to assist. Thank You.

I have purchased a defrost timer and would like diagram instructions of how to replace this part in my refridgeratior. Do these instructions come with the part I have purchased?
Answer Hi Hailey. Your defrost timer is located in the top. You remove the front cover by lifting and setting aside. Then you will see the mount screws and the defrost timer knob on the left under the fan cover. You remove the cover and un- bolt the timer. Unhook the electrical connector and reinstall the defrost timer. Make sure that you advance the timer with a large straight blade screwdriver to the 2nd "heavy" click so the timer will start in run time. Hope this helps. Thank you.
