Hello and welcome to JustAnswer! This is James, I'm an appliance repair technician with over 10 years of experience, and I'll be assisting you today

Sorry to hear your appliance is having issues, please stand by while I find the answer for you, this is not an immediate service however I will try and respond as soon as possible.
Where no plug is on the cable this is likely due to most undercounter units are hard wired into a terminal block such as here, with a isolation switch above counter since its often a challenge to turn off under counter appliances without having to pull them out.

However you could buy and fit a 3 pin plug on the end of the wire if that is preferred.

It was a pleasure to assist you today. I hope the above answers the question. If you have any follow up questions then please let me know.

There's no cable coming out of the fridge

That is a defect as none of the these models need a flex to be provided or installed.

I would double check the wire is not coiled up around the compressor to the bottom rear of the fridge if its not then contact the retailer to request a replacement.
