Question about Roper RT18DKXKQ / RT18DKXKT Top Freezer Refrigerator
All videos show side by side refrigerator. I think I can change it if I see directions.

This sounds like a defrost drain problem. Behind the panel in the back of freezer is a heater that defrosts the evaporator and below that is a drain hole. They will occasionally get clogged or just freeze over Pour hot water down it until it thaws then check to see if the water drains normally. If it drains after thawing then get a small length regular electrical wire and twist one end around the heater. You should get enough to extend the other end 2 or 3in into the drain hole. Now when the heater turns on it will heat the wire and thaw any ice in the top of the drain.
If you can't get water to drain then there is something clogging the drain tube and you'll have to find a way to clear it. I use a steamer that has a small tip to build pressure and force the clog out. Hope this helps.

I had the same problem with a top freezer. I found that the thermostat was bad by tapping on the it at the setting knob. The defrost timer was replaced first which did not help (repairman put in a timer for a Frigadair which will not work in a Roper). If one is used for a frigadair as soon as it cycles it will not work again until it is unplugged and allowed to reset. I replaced both the thermostat and the right defrost timer. It has worked great for over 2 months.
Hope this helps.

It is located in the center console which runs front to back in the food section on the ceiling. There should be just a couple of screws holding it in place

it seems to me that you have a clogged drain, that is located in the freezer compartment behind the panel. make sure that is not clogged. that will cause the issue you are having.
