Tip & How-To about Maytag SkyBox MBV1976A Beverage Dispenser
I have just replaced a rack in a Skybox and did some disassembly to see what I could find. On the backside of each rack is a hub in which the drive motor mounts. Inside that hub is a card with two sensors on it which the white ribbon with the 4 wires connects to. One sensor is for the "Home" position which the dispensor goes to if it is empty. The other sensor reads a small piece of metal embedded in the flap which tucks up under the dispensing drum. It is not the flap which is just about horizontal as you you look into the machine. This piece of metal is sensed and tells the machine whether the flap has returned signalling if the machine is jammed. Ensure that this flap moves freely and move it around to see if the jam disappears. This is likley why many jams disappear if you open the door and close it firmly.
