I just purchased a replacement power cord. It has the two brown wires and a green ground wire. It looks like the current cord goes into a black rubber piece. How do I change the cord? WR23X10300
Answer Buck, Most likely you will need to remove (cut out) the "black rubber piece" Then use electrical wire nuts and electrical tape to secure the new power cord to the refrigerator wire harness. You may want to remove or disconnect one side of the power cord at a time. The "smooth" sided wire on the new cord is the L1/power leg, and the "ribbed" wire of the new cord is the N neutral leg of the circuit. That way your "polarized". Remove a 1/2 to 3/4 inch of the wire insulation from the end of the wires, Place them together then install the wire nut on wires. Take the electrical tape and tape over the wire nut and wires to seal moisture and debris from entering the connection. The green ground wire needs to be attached to the refrigerator cabinet frame by any way possible, to maintain a proper and safe electrical flow and circuit through the refrigerator.
I am trying to figure out which wire is the live wire and which one is the neutral wire. I can see that the green wire would be the ground wire. Thanks.
Answer Hello Dave. You can identify the neutral side of the wire just by looking for markings on one of the wires. The most common identifier is ribbing in the rubber insulation all along one edge.
Where does the power cord connect to refrigerator? Do you sell the female & male connector for the power cord?
Answer Sara, The power cord for your refrigerator is located and mounted to the rear of the machine. Unfortunately, The male and female connectors, are not supplied with the cord or wiring harness, you will need to purchase separate connectors as needed, or securely splice the wires as needed. Thanks and Good Luck
