When i turn on my beer machine. It turns on and then makes a click noise and shuts down. No cooling at all anymore

What your hearing is the KliXon thermal overload tripping. The compressor is not starting and the thermal overload is trying to protect the compressor.

This can be caused by 3 things.

1. A locked rotor on the compressor. (bad news)
2. A failed PTC relay on the compressor
3. A failed run capacitor.

Usually a PTC relay and a run capacitor will bring it back to life unless the compressor is actually seized.

Thanks for using FixYa.

Skybox won't dispense. Door lights on, but no button lights at al

check the unit out to see if its frozen up. there is also sensors that corrode on them due to condensation. if it is frozen just unplug it and let it thaw out.

Lights flashing

The flashing lights usually indicate a jam or the flapper door not met which means a drink already dispensed. Just guessing here, but you may have a board problem. I have removed one dispensing drive motor and if I press that button all lights blink until I open the door and close it. Any chance you have a lot of ice buildup in the back? That could be causing a short or even caused connectors to loosen. A new connector board is $22 on but that would again only be a guess. Check some of the other problems listed for other possibilities.

Beer won't dispense, last one furthest to the right.

Have you checked the child-lock buttons?  They are located on the right side of the machine and are accessible only when the door is opened.
