This is Turtle.
i got talked into working on a few refrigerator the last few days and come
across two Roper refrigerator that had leaking evaperator coils on them. they
were manufactored about the same time about a little less than a year ago. Model
# RT18BKXKQ00 Serial Number VSP1449808 DOM 03/03 The other one was about the
same date and model number.
The Electric defrost heater element was touching the evaperator coil and was
heating the Al. coil up as it was defrosting and created a pin hole right where
the electric heating element was touching the evaperator coil. When i say pin
hole I mean it will run out of freon in a day or two. It was on the lower right
hand side of the evaperator coil. So you may be seeing the model described here
showing up with a evaperator coil leak.
Has anybody seen this yet ?
