I ordered WB26K5045 (order number 3123293). I find in installing that the original wire harness has a female connector and the new fan is also female!! Questions?
1. Is there a slightly different model which has a male connector. The old fan has a number 172081 for what its worth.
2.I disconnected the old fan at the fan. Is there another connection point within about 5 in which I may have missed. I carefully check and it seems that the old wires go to the wiring harness.
3. Is there a connector which allows a female-female connection. Or as a last resort do I order a new harness. Will it work?
Thanks for the service manual
ANSWER Hello Tom,
This is showing as the correct part number for your unit. What you may want to do is to clip the ends off of the fan and harness and tie together using ceramic wire nuts.
