Maytag Skybox Broken Door Hinge

Hi There! I noticed that your experts have fielded many questions about the Maytag Skybox and was wondering if you might know where I might find a replacement hinge or alternate solution to a broken left hand upper plastic door hinge for the Maytag Skybox.
The door is super heavy and with only one functional hinge, it's just waiting to crash.
Any ideas would be greatly appreciated!!
Thanks Much!

    Update....After ordering numerous parts claiming to fix this issue I removed the door to find that its actually the door itself that is broken. So there is no fix except to replace the door itself. SORRY

Broken hinge how do I get inside door to try to fix/replace?

lots and lots of screws. You need to remove the entire inner surface of the door. Not a lot of fun. But it does come apart.

Maytag skybox 1976AAB wont dispence

I had the same problem. The hinge pin on the dispensing door was rusted and this kept the door from closing completly. The door sensor magnet was not making contact with the door sensor and this caused the error. I removed the pin, sanded it down and it before reinstalling. It works fine now.

How to replace overload relay in Maytag Skybox

I'm not sure what you mean by "overload relay". I designed the electronic controls for Skybox. I have some parts, all of the schematics. I do not have any of the refridgeration components.
I just ran across your question looking for Skybox graphic panels for mine. I'm not sure how I can get you what you need.

Looks like I found the answer to the problem of Skybox not dispensing. I replaced the sensor in the dispensing door and my Skybox now works great!
Part is available from just look up your Skybox model number, mine was Skybox model MBV1976AAB. The diagram on the website should show you the exploded view of the door section of your Skybox. You are looking for part number 901892 or on the exploded view it will be number 21. The Maytag part number is 11001182, board flipper sensor. My Skybox had been down for two years and now works again!

Skybox won't dispense anything

check the door where the cans come out. there is a sensor or the left side. if it is too far away from the door or if it's broken, it will do exactly what you said. i read somewhere that you can adjust the sensor closer to the door. i just bought one of the last one of these on the shelves 2 days ago and mine won't cool at all. stupid maytag..
