Sorry but it sounds like the same thing that happened to mine and my diagnosis by the repair guy was that the compressor is bad. The cost of repair? $400! Maytag only covers the compressor for ONE YEAR!

Maytag skybox stopped cooling Skybox stopped cooling. Sounds like the relay will kick on briefly and then click off. Everything else works. I took the back panel off and could hear the relay clicking on...


The relay on your box is damaged.. You have to get it replaced.. Not to be tried by a novice but if you have some experience in electronics it can be fixed by you. The relay costs around 75$. Good luck!

What are the two red led lights on a skybox circuit board for? Mine are lit up and the unit won't cool. Is that an indication of what is wrong? If so, any idea what it is?


The red lights on the board indicate it is working properly. The purpose of the board is to control the dispensing of the beverages, and has nothing to do with the cooling process. You have a cold control (thermostat) inside the refrigerated area. The cold control is like a switch that sends 120vac to the compressor when cooling is needed. The failure of the unit to cool would be either a bad cold control, compressor, or compressor start relay. Testing of live electrical circuits should be left to a qualified service technician.

Compressor/unit runs constantly but does not cool.


is it keeping the inside contents cold and or frozen, if not possibly condenser coil needs cleaning,also if its in a very warm place and you have no problems other than that its just trying to keep things cool and has to run longer to do so

Compressor runs constantly, fridge cools, but not as cold as new


If unit is running constantly, and not nearly as cold as it used to be, most likely a freon leak. Possibly a partially frozen over evap too. If evap is mostly clear except for about 5% of it, most probably a freon leak. Changing controls will probably not fix anything. Need to look into this a little deeper.

Good Luck and hope this gets it done for you.

Hi my skybox stop cooling


The SkyBox operates with two individual systems. The dispenser assembly, the LED indicators and the circulating fan operate on a low voltage circuit. The circulating fan runs anytime the SkyBox is plugged in.

The cooling system operates on 120vac. The cold control inside the beverage compartment is an on demand switch that sends 120vac to the compressor when cooling is needed. There are no parts available for the compressor, so if it determined that power is reaching the compressor, the windings are ok, a 3 in1 hard start kit (Supco URCO210) can be installed by a qualified service technician.

Check the compressor to see if it is running. Is it too hot to touch. If so make sure the condensor has proper air circulation to cool it. If the compressor is cool to touch and running. There is a leak in the refrigerant sealed system.The compressor isn`t doing any work because there isn`t any refrigerant in it, therefore will not creat much heat. A humming and clicking sound is typical of an overheated or damaged compressor. If the compressor isn`t running and connot start. It could be a bad start relay on the side of the compressor or a bad compressor. If you can remove the start relay, shake it and listen for a rattle sound. If it rattles, it is bad.If not. then it is time consider the cost of a repairman verses the value of the appliance. Check the cost of repair to the sealed system or maybe even replacing the compressor.I hope I have been of some help to you.

For the soda name tags, I pulled logos off the internet and printed them the correct size on 20-pound paper. Different paper gives different translucence, so you might have to experiment to get the right amount of light coming through.
PS: thanks for the part no. on the relay
