The ice maker in my GE TBX22QA refrigerator is acting up. I decided to replace it. I ordered part WR30X10093 from Amazon. After removing my old ice maker, I see that the power cord on the replacement is different. Everything else seems to fit fine. It slides onto the existing mounting screws and the fill tube fits properly into the fill cup.

The old ice maker has a round male plug with 4 prongs. The replacement has a rectangle female plug with 6 holes, of which only 4 of the holes have contact points.

With some dis-assembling I might be able to remove the cord from the old one and replace it on the new one. But, that seems odd.

Also, on the replacement model, the female plug almost appears to be an add on as it looks to be a male-to-female converter that is attached to the cord. I have tried prying/pulling this male-to-female adapter out of the cord, but it seems to be glued in.

Do I still have the wrong ice maker model for my fridge?
Am I suppose to swap out the power cords?
Is the male-to-female adapter suppose to be removed?

Thanks.

That I/m should have had an adapter with it to transition from the rectangular plug to the round one, if memory serves...

I must have had my stupid hat on this morning. :wallbash:

I saw the short cord. But I figured that was maybe to be used on a different fridge when the plug in was located in a different location.

Plus, the cord attached to the IM was the exactly the correct length. So it didn't dawn on me to plug them together since then it would be 4 inches to long.

Plus, what I thought was a female plug actually was a male plug. The shroud around the prongs threw me and to me they looked like a female plug. So at first glance the short cord with it's female end did not make sense to plug into the female end of the cord on the IM.

Anyhow, thanks for setting me straight. Serves me right trying to do this early in the morning before my 2 cups of coffee.

No worries ...you would have figured it out on your own eventually.
