  • Molex Connectors

    The current recall from GD (for the wiring behind the refrigerator) mandates the use of a "molex connector" if a wiring repair is required. The attached PDF on Molex connectors came from https://www.content.molex.com/dxdam/...87651-0988.pdf

    The picture below is an example of a molex connector as seen on a GD factory line.

    If it's not obvious, the style being held in the picture is a round jacketed, stranded connector (the wire is already in the connector) and the hard wire in the other hand will need a corresponding molex so the two will click together.

    The pic below is from Yoda (Keith's) thread https://gdrvowners.com/forum/operati...-don-t-like-it showing two halves mated together.

    One resource to order Molex connectors is onlinecomponents.com (I've had good success with that company.)

    There is an "Optional Hand Tool" and there are different tools for different connectors. I'm guessing they are crimp-type tools specialized for these molex connectors. I have no experience with them--if you know anything please chime in.

    Forum moderators are not GD employees--we are volunteers and owners presumably just like yourself. Unless specifically mentioned otherwise, we have nothing to gain should you choose to purchase a product or engage a service we discuss on this forum.

      Check the recall list on Grand Design website Recalls | Grand Design (granddesignrv.com), or you could call Customer Service with your VIN.

        OK I looked, thank you. This is for the RV absorption refrigerators, and not the residential units.
