Question

Ice Maker plug


I have tried pulling out the plug and it will not release. Is there some trick to pulling out the plug?

I am talking about the ice maker plug. It seems that the rubber around it was glued in place.

your going to have to provide a little more info. Ice maker plug as in power, or your trying to install a new icemaker and need to get the plug out of the back to install water line?? How old ? Brand? I'm going to assume your talking about power and just tell you it is not glued in, probably will have two little tabs you need to squeeze and then pull.

The plug I am talking about is inside the freezer and it is the ice maker electric plug. It has a rubber gasket around it and that is glued to the freezer. It is not a prong that is the problem it is the rubber gasket around the plug that is glued. Thank you.

It is a Whirlpool Estate model TS25AFXKQ03. I have never seen anything like this before. Of course this is the first time for me to try to replace an ice maker so it is not just undoing three screws and unplugging the old unit. I have been gradually working my way around it trying to loosen it up. I cannot believe they would glue this part in. Thank you.

ok now I understand, I forgot about the newer Whirlpool products. First stop trying to unplug it there!!! That is part of the cabinet wiring, hope you haven't damaged the wires already. Remove the plug AT the icemaker itself

So you mean that I have to pull the old wiring out of the old icemaker at the icemaker part and use the old wiring with the new ice maker? No I have not damaged the wiring yet. Thank you

it is a quick disconnect plug at the icemaker, 1 push in tab directly in the middle will release it from the icemaker.
