Ice maker install dilema


Just purchased a new Frigidaire Fridge/freezer. My old one died (R 12 system loosing charge) Anyway, new fridge did not have a factory installed ice maker. My old ice maker is fairly new and I want to install it in the new fridge. Everything will fit accept the 4 pin plug inside the freezer. Frigidaire provided a factory installed harness so I do not need to use the one that came with my old one. However, I need a short extension cable 6"-8" long to reach the plug on the ice maker. As you can see in the pictures the tro plugs are different shapes and separated by about 6"-8". Does anyone know if there are adapter plugs available for this project? It is too late tonight to call the appliance store where I got the fridge, so I may have to wait a couple of days to find out if they have any.

Well, we did find one. Comes in a parts pack for a ice maker install kit. The part can be ordered separate but, the price is outrageous...$40.00!!!!! Did some digging around in the back room at the appliance store and scored a unit out of a 1 year old fridge with a bad compressor for $20.00.Told the Tom that my wife will be eternally grateful for at least a week.
