Default Roper - compressor not running
Model Number: RT18BKXKQ00   Brand: Roper   Age: 1 - 5 years   

Appliance Parts from AppliancePartPros.com


I have a nice little Roper fridge that is on the fritz. The light comes on when the door is open, the fan runs, but the compressor never kicks in. This model has an electronic defrost unit. I have no idea how to test it. Does any one have a suggestion as to where to start on diagnosing the problem.

Here are your parts

Here is the tech sheet

Since the evaporator fan and the compressor are wired in parallel, if the fan runs the compressor should run.

Could be the compressor itself, the overload or the start relay (PTC).
Also an outside chance that you have a bad wire.

Here are a couple good sites with info no how to check the above
