wire guage/type for Carrier blower circuit board

Hello,

My hvac blower fan was not working, so I replaced the circuit board (hk42fz009 to a new one ICM282A). Everthing runs fine, however, since the configuration of the new board is different, the wire from the door safety switch (black wire) to the board is a little short. SO I could not screw the circuit board to the blower deck.

The wire is a 16 AWG 600V, style 1275.

I could NOT find a replacement at any hardware stores.

Question: where can I find a this wire or a suitable replacment.

Thanks for reading and your help

JK

#16 MTW would be ok. #16 THHN/THWN is ok.

In the link is a small roll that the Depot carries. That is fine too. Comes in different colors.
Some of the stores have bulk roll wire.

#16 wire
