Question about Maytag SkyBox MBV1976A Beverage Dispenser

1 Answer

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

I read your replies to others on the fixya forum - got the P/N from appliancezone and was planning to order the part.

Just a couple questions. Mine currently, when you plug it in, tries to run for about 3 seconds then shuts off. Definitely sounds like a relay to me. As others said, Maytag is no help. If you have any pictures or advice on the install, I'd greatly appreciate a reply -

Thanks and have a good new year!

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

My maytag stooped cooling and does not sound like it is running


Hi,
Normally we have seen two issues.In one instance the water feed tube or trough stooped the flow of water to the ice maker and this produce a small transient water leak initially and then it stopped working and leaking eventually as the blocked tube did not thaw.
The other issue was ice in the ice maker that lodged in the blades of the ejector and prevented ice production.
Thanks for contacting Fixya.

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


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
