Question about Kenmore Refrigerators

Open Question

I have a kenmore ice maker with a white, a brown,a green and a orange wire that were in a 4 pin round plug. i cut them out to put in a 4 pin flat plug in a whirlpool fridge model BT14UKXNA00 that has a green , a brown , a black and a white wire. Does the green connect to the green, the white connect to the white and the brown connect to the brown leaving the black and orange to connect? I cant afford a new ice maker or a kit with the round to flat plug adapter so any help would be great. THANK YOU Stephen

    Kenmore ice maker and the white plastic end cap has a wiring diagram inside it showing the orange wire going to the hold switch and then to the feeler arm switch, the brown wire going to a relay or junction or splitter where it goes in two directions one to the motor and one to a mold heater , the white wire going to the water switch and the green going to a ground i believe it is.

I assume you only want lights, brake lights and signals. Your best bet is to plug a wire onto your truck... the flat plug, and turn , first the left signal, on. Use a test light to see which part of the plug in is flashing. Once you have established that, just keep plugging the other end of the wire into the trailer plug, until you get the left turn signal flashing on the trailer. Then repeat the process for lights etc.
You can also take the plug-in apart on the trailer. Inside the plug in it will have l/t, r/t, s, etc. (left turn, right turn, stop, etc.) There will be a very small arrow pointing to the terminal connection that is for each.

SOURCE: wiring ice maker old ice maker has a 4 square plug

wiring is different and you will probably short out something. this is 120 volts and you could get a shock! leave this to a professional. other wise the only thing i would tell you is compare the electrical schematics from both ice makers to varify power and control wiring.

SOURCE: jayco camper has 6-plug connector------car has

Hello,

It would be easiest, and best, if you were to upgrade the cars' trailer connector. The 4 way just supplies brake, parking, turnsignal, and a ground. The colors are the same on the 6 way, but 2 lines are added, usually for a electric brake controller and aux. circuit. Be careful about using the battery line (Red) on the 6 way connector unless you are also upgrading the white wire to a heavier gauge (at least the same size as red).

Green - Stop and Right Turn Signal (4/5/6/7 way)
Yellow - Stop and Left Turn Signal (4/5/6/7 way)
Brown - Running Lights (tail, side, tag) (4/5/6/7 way)
White - Ground / Negative (4/5/6/7)
Blue - Electric Brakes (5/6/7 way)
Red - Aux. charge line for emergency break away, battery charger, etc. (7 way)
Purple - Aux. backup lights / other purpose (7 way)

Usually the fact that the wires have the same color does not mean that they are meant to go together. But in your situation since the other colors match then they are menat to go together. Although according to color coding the black is meant to be neutral while orange also stands for neutral.so both wires could go together. But in rare cases the wires coding could have been mixed up so best get an expert to examine it and test the cables to determine which is which to avoid unforeseen damage.
Hope this solution has been helpful?

I have a Kenmore refri/freezer model 106.7687460. with the icemaker removed the unit will not operate. I need a wiring diagram or which wires needs to be connected at icemaker connection.


Good day,
the defrosting control is a part of the ice maker. If you don't care about appearances, you can wire around it.
First, you have to buy a 8 hour 20 minute Whirlpool defrost timer.
Any sharp appliance parts house counter guy will know what you need. It comes with one of the clock wires un-attached.
As well, you will need 4 insulated 1/4" female spade connectors.
Buy spares to be safe.

Cut the cord from the old ice maker at the ice maker.
There will be 5 main wires and a green ground wire.
Strip about 1" of the green wire's insulation.
There will be 5 wires left. red-orange-black-pink-brown.
Tape the brown wire back it will not be used.

strip back approx. 1/4" of the remaining wires. crimp a spade connector to each of the 4 remaining wires.

The terminals will look like this.... | | | | on the timer.
Notice the space between the first terminal and the second, compared to the rest.
We will call the terminals on the timer from left to right, 1,2,3,and 4 even though the timer will say differently.
Connect the loose wire on the timer to terminal 4.
Plug the red to #1, Orange to #2, black to #3, and pink to #4.
Plug into machine, and run to test. If O.K. then........
Using high quality electrical tape, tape everything exposed well.

Mount the timer to the wall using one of the left over holes from removing ice maker.

Drill a tiny hole, close to that area, and using a good self tapping screw, attach the green grounding wire. Detail your work as necessary.

It's ugly, but it works. Actually, I install the timer inside the case after gutting the works. If you want to try that, DO NOT cut the cord, as explained at the beginning.

Note: Some supply houses may still sell the adapter, already made up. You can check. In either case, you must have a timer in the circuit for defrosting.

Cat 5 Issue you replied to


The color is not so important as the cable follow the same standard on both ends.
It has been my misfortune to find non-standard wiring in a facility, so long as they keep the relationship of the pins the same it will work, if the installer did not then you cannot trust any of the work and MUST either redo it all or have it all tested and certified by a cometent network cable installer.
