Roper refrigerator not cooling

Roper refrigerator not cooling. Roper is a brand of kitchen appliances sold through Whirlpool, which is a company that owns several other appliance brands.

If you are having cooling problems with your Roper refrigerator and it is not one of the most common issues reported to consumers by other owners, first try taking measures such as unplugging your refrigerator for at least 15 minutes, as suggested by Roper.

It may be that there is a minor problem with your refrigerator’s thermostat or cooling system which can be rectified quickly and easily if you do some basic troubleshooting before arranging for any repairs to be carried out on your appliance.

Roper Refrigerator not cooling. If the condenser fan motor is not working properly, the refrigerator won’t cool properly.

To determine if the fan motor is defective, first check the fuse and circuit breaker to ensure that they aren’t tripped or out-of-wires.

Next, try turning on the fan by hand but be warned that this could be a dangerous situation and you will require a licensed electrician to ensure safety prior to actually plugging in your appliance bless.

Defective Condenser Fan Motor

The condenser fan motor draws the warm air through the condenser coils and onto the compressor of your refrigerator.

Even without a fan, a refrigerator will draw air through but will not be able to properly function if the coil is blocked by dirt or other material.

To determine if the fan motor is broken and needs to be replaced, first check for any blockages, such as dirt and debris, that may have accumulated around the blades of the fan yourself.

If you cannot find any contaminants, use a multimeter to test for continuity – there should be some between each meter wire and its corresponding blade of the fan motor.

If there is no continuity or an obstruction in your way, you will need to replace it with a new running condenser motor so that your refrigerator can work at its full capacity!

Faulty Evaporator Fan Motorfaulty evaporator fan motor

The evaporator is the part of a refrigerator that cools the air inside. Without it, the fridge will have no way to chill down properly.

The Evaporator fan motor helps send this cool air into all the other parts of your fridge.

If you’re noticing that your fridge isn’t working properly and simply can’t maintain a good temperature, it’s possible that the evaporator fan motor is broken.

To prevent damaging your appliance, first, see if you can turn the blade on the Evaporator Fan Motor by hand; if not then chances are there’s something wrong with it and needs replacing immediately.

Temperature Control Thermostat issue

Thermostats are responsible for regulating the temperature of a building. There are many different types of thermostats and each one has its own specific temperature range, controlled by settings or changes in the environment such as weather or time of day.

You can tell if a thermostat is faulty in two ways either it should click at each position change, or you can test it using a multimeter which you can use to measure how much continuity is being created.

If no continuity is created when changing from one setting to another, the thermostat needs to be replaced.

Replace Start Relay

The start relay works in conjunction with the start winding to start the compressor. If the start relay is defective, the compressor may not run or may occasionally fail to turn on.

As a result, the refrigerator will not be cold enough. To determine if the start relay is defective, use a multimeter to test it for continuity between the live and terminal sockets located under the control panel.

If there is no continuity between these sockets, then replace them. In addition, if the start relay has a burnt odor, replace it as well.

Start Capacitor problemstart capacitor problem

The start capacitor provides a boost of power to the compressor during start-up.

If the start capacitor isn’t working, the compressor may not start, and this will cause your refrigerator to fail to cool adequately.

To determine whether it’s faulty, we can test it with a multimeter and if we find that it is faulty, then you need to replace it.

Inspect Main Control Board

Almost all of the time, the main circuit board is not the source of the problem. Before you replace the main circuit board, make sure to test out everything else as well.

If none of the other components are defective, consider replacing your control board.

Dirty Condenser Coils

Condenser coils are usually located beneath a refrigerator and near the back. They dissipate heat as refrigerant passes through them.

If the condenser coils are dirty, they won’t be able to dissipate heat effectively; a refrigerator that’s not cool enough can be not only frustrating but health-threatening as well.

If dense, sticky buildups of dirt cover the coils after time, a fridge will have to work harder than normal in order to keep your food at a consistent temperature.

If the buildup is very noticeable and creates a serious blockage, the resulting decrease in efficiency will prevent the appliance from operating at full capacity.

Thermistor does not have continuity

When the thermistor senses a temperature change, it sends out a signal that allows the control board to adjust the power to certain areas of the refrigerator.

If there’s a major issue with the thermistor, like sensor failure or faulty wiring, indicating that the sensor should be replaced with a new one.

The resistance in those two wires should be checked (using continuity readings) every year to make sure you don’t confront any issues down the road like an ineffective cooling system because of outdated parts.
