You may not have a dispenser problem at all, but rather a build up of frost and ice. The evaporator is embedded in the interior wall directly behind the two middle dispensers. The dispenser effected most bt the ice build up is the second one from the bottom. Unplug the unit and leave the door open for 24 hours. Then plug it back in, reset your thermostat at the 11:00 position and close the door. If the problem is still present, the next step would be to remove the dispenser assembly and search carefully for a disc shaped magnet about the size og the leter "O" on your keyboard. There are 9 of these magnets in the SkyBox. The dispensing cylinder has one built in, as does the flap at the end of the dispensing row. When the cylinder moves to dispense a beverage, a reed switch detects the magnet. Next it looks for that flap at the end to open when the beverage falls down. Finally, as the beverage comes out in the door another reed switch detects the opening and closing of the flapper door. If the board does not see the signal from any of the reed switches, it assumes there is a product stuck someplace.
I hope this helps.

Maytag skybox 1976AAB wont dispence


I had the same problem. The hinge pin on the dispensing door was rusted and this kept the door from closing completly. The door sensor magnet was not making contact with the door sensor and this caused the error. I removed the pin, sanded it down and it before reinstalling. It works fine now.
