Maytag Skybox Beverage Dispenser/Refrigerator

The refrigeration unit on my Skybox quit working. It still dispenses and lights work just fine...but it doesn't get cold. I'm told by Maytag that they don't repair them anymore because they were discontinued and they don't have any more parts. Does anyone know how to repair it without parts specifically made for the Skybox? Or does anyone know where I might find some parts hidden somewhere? Thank you for any help you can give!

    stop working makes clicking noise when turning on

  • zanntheman Mar 08, 2008

    Unit does not come on. Compressor makes a clicking noise then shuts off after about 10 seconds. Repeats this every two minutes or so. What could be the problem.

    Thanks.

    I have the same exact problem, I believe it is the compressor. Does anyone have an answer as to where I can get parts?

TroJo, Try PartSelect.com for Skybox parts. I ordered a part on Monday night and installed it on Wednesday night. The parts are not that hard to find. Appliance repair services can replace your compressor or add freon. Be sure you have plenty of ventilation behind your machine. Jonmon

I've had my Skybox for almost two years and it has worked great until last week. I had drinks double stacked in one slot and when hit the select button it flashed and didn't dispense the drink. I have had this happen before when one of the drinks got crossed and jammed. Easy to fix, but this time after I had even did away with the double stack it will only flash the red light and then do a quick double flash and --- nothing. Any simple solutions??

CAN A SKYBOX 'MAYTAG' BE PERMENENTLY INSTALLED OUTSIDE


The Maytag SkyBox is not a commercial vending machine. It is designed for INDOOR use only. The possibility of electric shock is likely from a unit that has gotten wet. In addition, the electronics are not designed to withstand the outdoor elements.

We have a french door botom freezer maytag w/ and electronic water/ice dispenser. Model #mfi2568ae In the middle of the night the ice dispenser started opening and closing by itself and the led display is...


Don't be duped into thinking the display/dispenser board is the culprit. It may come a surprise, but this failure is often misdiagnosed. Because the dispenser is causing such a ruckus or because the display itself is blank or flickering, folks are led to believe that the display control board itself is the part that has failed. Looking at the history of our board evaluations, this little tiny control board rarely fails. And as crazy as it may seem, it is the main control board, aka the high voltage control of the fridge that is causing your refrigerator not to cool and the dispenser to be erratic.... This is the main control board of the refrigerator, located on the back of the unit. I've attached photos of what this main control board looks like. This main control board will need to be repaired to replaced.
