Default Whirlpool Ice Maker Problem, Harness Questin
Model Number: ED5VHGXMQ10   Brand: Whirlpool   Age: 5 - 10 years   

Appliance Parts from AppliancePartPros.com


I have a Whirlpool ED5VHGXMQ10 side-by-side refrigerator, and the ice maker stopped working. The water dispenser in the door works fine. The ice maker part number shown inside the control cover is 106 626662.

When I insert a jumper wire between holes T and H, nothing happens. I am assuming I need to replace the entire ice maker, correct? So I looked at the pictures of the parts in the replacement kit (AP2984633), and watched the excellent video on how to replace it. HOWEVER, it appears that my wiring is different where it connects to the back wall of the freezer. Rather than having a 4-wire rectangular or round quick disconnect, it looks more like the wires feed through a 4-hole grommet. Here is a pic: imgur: the simple image sharer.

How do I disconnect these wires? Do they unplug there, or do they feed through into the back of the fridge somewhere?

Is there any other testing I should do before ordering a replacement kit?

I really could use some input on this one, if anyone knows something about the plug/wiring in the pic I posted above. Thanks!

I have the same issue. Remove the white cover from the ice maker then unplug the wire harness there. Some models do not have the back plug.
