The two pieces are put together to replace the one item connected to the compressor - follow the wires to the same connections as the old item --- there is a wiring diagram on the back, but you should not need it -- if you cant figure it out -- email me to my msn account and I can give you specific connections directions

after replacing this item -- the unit should work ok -- my drinks are nice and cold again and I love it -- especially with my Pittsburg Steelers logo ---

Its is not cooling my room Help?


Hello Mary;

My name is peter. I am a retired field service refrigeration technician.

There are several reasons your unit may not be cooling:

1.) A bad thermostat (Thermister) - This is a small elongated bulb with a long wire that is mounted on the face of the cooling coil. It clips on the face and has a connector at the other end. This is relatively inexpensive and easily replaced.

2.) A bad starter relay on the compressor. Although the part is inexpensive it is a major job to disassemble the unit to access and replace.

3.) A bad compressor - This is a major repair.

4.) A bad temperature controller - This requires a sharp handyman or technician.

If you remove the front cover on your unit, on the left hand side your will see your model number. Take this model number and go into the following website. Put in your model number (Left hand side) model number. Then select parts. You will get diagrams and part numbers so you can refer to the components I have mentioned above.

In general, unless you have a service contract, you are looking at a service call of $220.00 +. We conditioners window air conditioners; "Throw-A-Ways".

You can purchase a new unit for less than what it will cost you to repair yours.

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!

WASHER WILL NOT WORK - CODE od APPEARS ON WASHER AND IT BEEPS - WILL NOT DO ANYTHING


I feel you have lost Lid Open/Lid Closed signaling to the Control Board from the Left Hand Lid Lock assembly. If you remove the Left Hand lid lock assembly I believe you will find a broken wire to the magnetic read relay or severe corrosion on the input and output pins in the Left Hand Lid Lock assembly.


Take a look at this link Left Hand Lid Lock Troubleshooting and see if it will help with troubleshooting and repair.

You will find a part number for the Left Hand lid lock and parts supply vendor links if you decide to purchase the Left Hand Lid lock.


I would do some troubleshooting by removing the Left Hand Lid lock and inspecting before a part purchase………Rich

Where in my 1997 mustang is the fuse box


The 1994-98 Mustang vehicles are equipped with two fuse boxes, or locations: the fuse junction panel and the power distribution box.
The fuse junction panel is located under the left-hand side of the instrument panel and is an integral part of the chassis wiring harness. The fuse junction panel contains only some of the fuses and circuit breakers for the vehicle.

The indicator flasher and fuse junction panel are located under the left-hand side of the instrument panel, to the left of the steering column

The other location for fuses and relays is the power distribution box, which is located in the engine compartment on the left-hand, front fender apron. This box contains the high power fuses and was designed to take the place of most of the fusible links.

Note that the identification of the fuses and relays is embossed into the power distribution box cover

Maytag Skybox has stopped cooling


the whirlpool part is the oem part and is the best part for your repair it should replace wire for wire and require very little instruction. the 3-n-1 will cause premature failure of the compressor and is not recommended. As far as I know there really isnt a service manual available for the skybox. It was a very limited production product that didnt stay available for very long. thnaks Peyton

How do i disable the horn on my 1988 crown victoria


Remove the horn relay.

To find the horn relay:
"look under the hood on the left, front side of the car there's a somewhat triangle shaped box with fuses in it. It has 1 latch @ the top(left side of the box) & 2 latches @ the bottom(right side of the box). Open & pull off top. Under top will be names of the fuses & relays you will need to take it out and take it with you to the parts store so they can match it up with one they have they may have to order it call first. "

Maytag Skybox not cooling


sounds like compressor relay --- if the fan and compressor come on and then shut off after about 5-10 seconds -- its the relay --- sometimes you have to also replace the transformer and capacitor on the opposite side of the unit --- all items are accesible from the back of the unit
