    WANTED grid wires for an old whirlpool ice machine

    Anybody have some old grid wires or grid assy they would like to sell ? Its for a very old Whirlpool mod CAECS 5AE4 with 5/8 cubes I think but we will take anything that will fit. Whirlpool doesn,t have these anymore, thanks.

    Its just stainless steel wire. I used to restring them but I cant remember what gauge it was. Get your caliper out and check it. Think I found it at Grainger. Its been probably ten years.
