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.

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.

Lights blink when drink button pushed.

Hello first check the flap sensor where the magnet in the flap is even.You will have to take the door off and apart the sensor is right behind the flapper door frame.Take 2 black screws out to get to the sensor.Moisture builds up on it and corrodes it.Clean it with alcohol,replace it and try it,this is just an easy trouble shoot it worked for me,though my chutes still dont go to the home position always but maybe yours is set right already.Good Lucke4aadca.gif

The part I need for my Maytag Skybox is NO LONGER AVAILABLE! UGH!!! Part# 11001182 Door Flipper Sensor. Is there a way to "short out" the old sensor so that it "always" shows the door in the proper...

You can not short it out as the purpose is to tell the board that a dispensed beveraged has been removed from the bin. It will not dispense another beverage until the signal is received. The danger could be a second "glass" bottle coming down into one in the bin and breaking. The small board can be removed, cleaned with a very small stiff bristled brush, then reinstalled. It contains a hall effect sensor that reacts to a magnet in the flipper door.

Why did i buy this? It never works!

I have cleaned the sensor on the door and it has fixed the problem, by wiping it off with a rag.

Won't dispense anything

It is either a bad control board or a transformer.

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..
