My Matag Skybox compressor will not turn on. I can here it clicking and trying to come on.


HI. This is a strong indication of starter/overload relay failure. This clicking noise is coming directly fromm the relay device. it is damaged. this relay is the main starter of the compressor unit. It receives a signal from the main PCB. Once the power signal is received, the relay will regulate the starting, and stopping of the compressor, via control board and thermostat assembly. The failed relay will need to be replaced, asap. Once replaced, the unit will operate correctly. The relay is mounted on the side of the compressor. Once the bracket, and terminal wires are removed, you can gently pull it away form the compressor, to check the contacts and connections for corrosion. If any of the contacts or terminal connections are worn, replace them. Worn contacts, or corroded connections will not allow for proper current flow.

NOTE_ I would advise to locate the clicking. Make sure its coming form the compressor/relay location. There are some units of this nature out there that are fixed(compressor and relay intergraion). If this is the case, simply replace the entire compressor unit. If the clickiong is coming from the main control board(PCB), the PCB, will be the culprit.

Removing compressor from skybox


Maytag never offered a replacement compressor for the SkyBox units. It was not a cost effective repar to make. If you are sure the thermostat is supplying 120VAC to the compressor, you can install a Supco URCO410 relay/capacitor/overload kit. This part should only be installed by a qualified service technician.

Maytag Skybox not cooling


sounds like compressor relay --- if the fan and compressor come on and then shut off after about 5-10 seconds -- its the relay --- sometimes you have to also replace the transformer and capacitor on the opposite side of the unit --- all items are accesible from the back of the unit

Maytag did not offer any parts for the compressor on the SkyBox. Purchase a SUPCO URCO410 relay/overload/capacitor kit and install it per the instructions on the package.

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
