Maytag Skybox not cooling

Compressor and fan both run but no cool. It has never cooled. Could it be the relay and overload switch that has been posted. Also could you e-mail me a service and parts manual? sbauer145@msn.com

    WHERE IS THE RELAY SWITCH? MINE IS NOT COOLING

  • reedgebel Feb 10, 2009

    I have the same problem, I called Maytag and they said you could not purchase the compressor or relay switch. Please let me know where you purchased the repair parts. We love our skybox and want to be able to keep using it.

    thanks Rhonda

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

When i turn on my beer machine. It turns on and then makes a click noise and shuts down. No cooling at all anymore


What your hearing is the KliXon thermal overload tripping. The compressor is not starting and the thermal overload is trying to protect the compressor.

This can be caused by 3 things.

1. A locked rotor on the compressor. (bad news)
2. A failed PTC relay on the compressor
3. A failed run capacitor.

Usually a PTC relay and a run capacitor will bring it back to life unless the compressor is actually seized.

Thanks for using FixYa.

Compressor runs constantly, fridge cools, but not as cold as new


If unit is running constantly, and not nearly as cold as it used to be, most likely a freon leak. Possibly a partially frozen over evap too. If evap is mostly clear except for about 5% of it, most probably a freon leak. Changing controls will probably not fix anything. Need to look into this a little deeper.

Good Luck and hope this gets it done for you.

Hi my skybox stop cooling


The SkyBox operates with two individual systems. The dispenser assembly, the LED indicators and the circulating fan operate on a low voltage circuit. The circulating fan runs anytime the SkyBox is plugged in.

The cooling system operates on 120vac. The cold control inside the beverage compartment is an on demand switch that sends 120vac to the compressor when cooling is needed. There are no parts available for the compressor, so if it determined that power is reaching the compressor, the windings are ok, a 3 in1 hard start kit (Supco URCO210) can be installed by a qualified service technician.

Skybox won't cool enough.


you might need the compressor checked for freon level

when the compressor stops cooling entirely - the products will stay room temp.. when this happens -- the relay overload switch is the problem -- most sites tell you to change the capacitor and transformer -- this is expensive and not the problem -- its like changing the starter and alternator on a car -- before checking for a bad battery

For the soda name tags, I pulled logos off the internet and printed them the correct size on 20-pound paper. Different paper gives different translucence, so you might have to experiment to get the right amount of light coming through.
PS: thanks for the part no. on the relay

Maytag skybox cooling


Is it cooling at all? Do you hear the compressor start or just a buzz for a few seconds? This sounds like a compressor or compressor start relay failure. Unplug the machine. Access the compressor and remove the relay that is plugged to the side of it. Shake it and see if it sounds like there are a lot of loose pieces in it. Inspect it for burned spots. If you find either one of these, it is bad. If it doesn't rattle or appear burned then the compressor is probably bad. Even if it seems ok, I would try a new one on it anyway. They aren't usually very expensive. If the relay is not the problem, check your owners manual for the warranty info. The compressor may still be covered by warranty even if the rest of the unit is out of warranty.
