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

When I push any button on my skybox unit, it doesn't dispense. It makes no noise, and the red button lights don't light up or flash or anything. The flourescent door lights are on though. Looking for some help with what part might help fix this problem.

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.

Maytag skybox 1976AAB wont dispence


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.

Skybox is freezing and making a humming noice.


The temperature in the SkyBox is controlled by the thermostat located within the beverage compartment. If set too high, product can feeze. In addition ice will build up behind the dispenser assembly. The ice buildup can eventually make contact with the circulating fan blade and cause a constant noise.
You should hear the compressor stop running as you turn down the cold control, but prior to reaching the "off" position. Select a lower setting for the cold control, and unplug the unit for 24 hours with door open to thaw out the ice build up. Reconnect power to resume normal operation.

3/4 buttons work


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.

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.

I had that problem too, in addition to a backwards cooling fan and the wrong thermostat. I needed to replace a sensor wire in the door, condensation had caused some rust on it.
