Question about Maytag SkyBox MBV1976A Beverage Dispenser

1 Answer

Maytag Skybox I just wanted to thank you for providing the solution to the skybox cooling problem. I did not want to get rid of it but I knew Maytag would be no help. I would never have thought in a million years that I could replace a compressor relay and overload assembly, yet with your detailed instructions I am once again enjoying cold beverages! And I won't be inviting the Maytag repairman over for a beer anytime soon! Thanks again. Keith Jacksonville, FL

    Could you please share the detailed instructions? I'd hate to lose the Skybox - had it for 4+ years with no issues until yesterday.

    My SkyBox is 5 years old and it does not keep drinks as cold as it used to. I probably have the exact same problem. I was told to clean the fan-but when I remove the back panel there is no accessible fan. Can someone please tell me (as I noticed several other people have the same problem) how to fix it. It is located about 10 feet from my television and is just as important (as I only use it for beer) during football season-Thank You-Jim Sullivan-

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.

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
