Remove the door sensor assembly from the door. Purchase a brush used to apply flux during a soldering operation. Also purchase a tube of blue RTV sealant.
Cut the bristle on the brush to half their size to make them more rigid. Use the brush to remove all the white crud built up on the board. Once the board is clean, coat it lightly with the RTV except for the black reed switch at the end of the board. Reinstall the board and see if this corrects your problem and keeps the board working.
I hope this helps.

98 Stratus - Access to vent temperature cable and vent door/flapper ?


Sorry but the system doesn't use cables, it is all motorized and this is a common issue on all older cars. You will need to remove the dash assembly and check the temperature control door (also known as the "blend door). In all cases the door must be checked for freedom of movement, the blend door binding destroys the tiny DC stepper motor that moves the door and in may cases the shaft snaps off. See picture of blend door motor below. dc2433d7-cbf5-43b9-b143-769d332ec8b0.jpg

Skybox cools but nothing else works, no LED lights, no dispensing


If none of the LEDs are working, sounds like the transformer has went bad. First look at the board for a fuse to see if its blown, if so replace, see what happens next. To check and change the transformer you need a volt/ohm meter. If you do, and are feeling ambitious, I'll need some info off the schematic or the transformer itself, and I will walk you through it.

Your unit has infered sensors on the frezzer left and right walls. There is a diagnostic test sheet brown in color in your kick plate.All you have to do is open frezzer door look on the right sensor it should blink twice followed by a 1-2 sec delay,if that is good press in flapper door on right sensor do not block path of infered beam you will not see a beam its invisable.Once you hold in flapper on right sensor the led should be solid.If solid optics are good if not solid led replace optic sensors

Skybox won't dispense anything


check the door where the cans come out. there is a sensor or the left side. if it is too far away from the door or if it's broken, it will do exactly what you said. i read somewhere that you can adjust the sensor closer to the door. i just bought one of the last one of these on the shelves 2 days ago and mine won't cool at all. stupid maytag..
