Hi Rick

It looks I have similar issue like Alex with the clicking sound being heard from the Main Control board and the refrigerator cycling on and off. I checked the main control board and can see for P6 and P4 the wires coming into each terminal look burnt at the point where the wire joins into the white terminal . The wires look fine gong into J2 of the Power Control board.
See attached pics.

Any ideas if just the wires can be replaced. What wire harness replacement would this be for?
The main control board and power control board are brand new.

Thanks,
Hemal

Rick has been out sick since Jan. 12th, hopefully he will return soon!

I moved your post to a new thread, do you have the exact same model number WRX735SDBM00? Read it from the model number tag, which is located inside the refrigerator section on the upper walls or ceiling.

Ok, Unfortunately I was not able to locate the wire harness for this model model.

So the only thing you can do is cut the burnt wires off and connect new terminal connectors to the clean wire.

Hi Jake,

Yeah was thinking the same thing cutting off the burnt wire. Where do I purchase the new terminals from and do the wires need to be soldered onto the terminals?

Thanks,
Hemal

Since they are female pin connectors, any electronic store should have them.

do the wires need to be soldered onto the terminals?
No, if you use the female pin connectors like you have now in the plastic connector they should hold in place once you push them on the control board male pins.

Hi Jake

I meant when I cut off the burnt wire from the current plastic connector, how do I connect the wire back to the new plastic connector?

Thanks,
Hemal

You don't. Don't use the plastic connector, just connect the female connector to the male connector directly.

Hi Jake

The female connector will need to have the new wire connected to it, and then the female connector will connect directly onto the male pins on the control board. How do I get the new wire onto the female connector?

Thanks,
Hemal

To get the new FEMALE terminal connector on, just strip the wire insulation back a little on those wires and crimp it on.

I use this wire stripping tool:
Wire Stripper
