Re: Flapper Door Sensor
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.

ok i have the solution to the dispensing problems on the maytag skybox vending machine ... u need to open the main door and unplug the main harness , next remove the door from the hinges and place upside down somewere were it is good to work on ,next remove the 2 screws that cover the flapper sensor , next remove the seal around the door,behing the seal you will see a series of screws, remove all of them a regular phillips screwdriver is fine, next remove the back cover from the door, there you will need to unplug the flapper sensor from the main board just follow the cable and youll find the plug, once you have unplugged the plug continue by removing the complete sensor and wire, next you will see 3 wires one of the wires has xxxxxxx all over the wire this wire you will NOT touch as it can short out your unit now the other 2 wires you need to separate and cut once you have cut the 2 wires strip the ends and unite both ends together tape up and tuck away once you have done this put the door back together and mount on the unit and continue vending hope this helps .....
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.
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 Luck
I can get you the schematic,though you might not need it try this first.Take your door off and apart.On the back of the flapper frame there will be 2 blk screws under that is a sensor.more than likely it will be corroded,clean it with alcohol and then try it out.If not I have some guides and schematics I can email you
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.
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..
