Question about Maytag SkyBox MBV1976A Beverage Dispenser

1 Answer

Msj2222 - you got your Skybox working - can you help me??

I am having the same problem as referenced in the forum - it sounds like I too need the relay overload switch referred to by Mike4671. IF you figured out how to install, could you post a pic or reply to me directly??

Thanks greatly,
James

    I feel like a dummy. I did exactly that and nothing happens. My compressor gets hot though.

Dont have a picture, but when you replace it -- switch the wire one wire at a time---- very easy to do --- the overload relay and cover are on the left side of the back of unit ---- looking straight at the back -- switched item out and works like new

Mike - my Skybox is having the same issues - not cooling


thats the relay --- the relay controlls when the compressor works


some places try to sell you a capacitor and transformer

thats not the problems

capacitors store power and transformer steps power up or down for circuits

the problem was the overload relay--replaced and works just like new

maytag had no clue about the repair, only could say it was discontinued and they dont sell parts

Maytag skybox stopped cooling Skybox stopped cooling. Sounds like the relay will kick on briefly and then click off. Everything else works. I took the back panel off and could hear the relay clicking on...


The relay on your box is damaged.. You have to get it replaced.. Not to be tried by a novice but if you have some experience in electronics it can be fixed by you. The relay costs around 75$. Good luck!

Bogus Skybox


Sorry, I don't have this problem.
My skybox flashed all lights and did not deliver.
I cleaned mildew off the photo eye on the left side of the tray flap
(very small) and my skybox continues to work to this day.

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

Looks like I found the answer to the problem of Skybox not dispensing. I replaced the sensor in the dispensing door and my Skybox now works great!
Part is available from partselect.com just look up your Skybox model number, mine was Skybox model MBV1976AAB. The diagram on the website should show you the exploded view of the door section of your Skybox. You are looking for partselect.com part number 901892 or on the exploded view it will be number 21. The Maytag part number is 11001182, board flipper sensor. My Skybox had been down for two years and now works again!

Skybox wont dispense


I did some extensive searching for the inserts, and found nothing. I ended up making my own in a graphics program and having it printed at a blueprint shop.

Are you saying that three bins work and one does not, or the other way around? The sentence was hard to understand.

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
