Freezer unit of Roper refrigerator stops working every few days and foods thaw. What is wrong and how can I fix it to ensure it works without thawing food?
Hi my name isXXXXX will be assisting you with this problem.Please allow me some time to do research and type a response to each of your posts.

Can you give me the model number from the sticker inside the fridge.
Customer: replied 4 years ago.

I don't have sticker number here. Frig was purchased new about 10 years ago. Freezer is at top. Single freezer door and frig door below open from front.


there should be a sticker with the model number and serial number inside the fridge.

The problem here is going to be the defrost timer, It's likely sticking and shutting the unit down too long during the defrost cycle. The defrost timer is normally located inside the control panel inside the fridge although I cant be more specific without the model number.

The defrost timer should be replaced in order to fix this problem.
