All trays excpet the second (from the top) dispenser work fine. When you press the button the light goes out then back on thats it. Is it the dispenser assembly or perhaps the switch?

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.
The motor was never offered as an individual replacement part. The entire dispenser assembly was the only way the motor was availabler. Marcone Appliance Parts (1-800-482-6022) shows a single dispenser (11001187) left in their national inventory in the Jacksonville, FL location.
You may not have a dispenser problem at all, but rather a build up of frost and ice. The evaporator is embedded in the interior wall directly behind the two middle dispensers. The dispenser effected most bt the ice build up is the second one from the bottom. Unplug the unit and leave the door open for 24 hours. Then plug it back in, reset your thermostat at the 11:00 position and close the door. If the problem is still present, the next step would be to remove the dispenser assembly and search carefully for a disc shaped magnet about the size og the leter "O" on your keyboard. There are 9 of these magnets in the SkyBox. The dispensing cylinder has one built in, as does the flap at the end of the dispensing row. When the cylinder moves to dispense a beverage, a reed switch detects the magnet. Next it looks for that flap at the end to open when the beverage falls down. Finally, as the beverage comes out in the door another reed switch detects the opening and closing of the flapper door. If the board does not see the signal from any of the reed switches, it assumes there is a product stuck someplace.
I hope this helps.
If nothing happens, the switch behind the button must be broken, or something on the PCB that the button is mounted to is broken. But if lights blink, then the button is ok and the problem is with the motor or some sensor. I have a troubleshooting guide for the dispensing system (better than Maytag ever published), as I was directly involved in the design of this product. This does not cover the refridgeration system, as that was provided by our Chinese manufacturer. Please email me at: firstname.lastname@example.org if anyone wants this guide.
mine did the same thing. apparently, if the internal unit gets too cold, it freezes operation in some of the buttons. try turning up the temp to let it thaw, then try the button again. the downside is that when you turn down the temp again, you are likely going to face the same problem.
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..
