    Need help identifing the connector on Smartpool Nitro cord

    The other day my Nitro Pool Cleaner would not start, so I tried to unplug it when the plug on the cord cracked apart.

    I am hoping somebody (electronic/electrical geek) can recognize the plug on the cord and the socket on the transformer. I called SmartPool and they said they can only sell me a new cord for $100+. They would not tell me what the connector brand and type is.

    Here are a couple of pictures.





    If someone can identify the connection type, brand and model then I would be able to solder one on pretty easily. Which hopefully can be done for less that $100.

    Thanks!

    Send these pictures to some electronic supply places. I looked at a couple likely sources. This page has something that looks similar. Near the bottom, 86PM4

    I have mine in the box waiting to bring it back to Costco, it broke after the first time !! I looked to see if it had a name or part # on the plug, there is none . I would safely assume it is made in China , and you will not be able to find a replacement . I would try to call Smart Pool again, sometimes getting a different customer service Rep can lead to a different outcome, Good Luck !

    I've seen that connector before. It's a standard connector. If you have time you can go to Mouser Electronics and search their catalog for circular connectors and you cna probably find it.
