Re: Not cold enough. Unit worked fine before i moved it.
Place a thermometer in your unit and get a good temperature reading for the current temperature. Unplug your unit and take the cover off the thermostat and remove the knob. Take the nut holding the thermostat to the plastic holder off. Thermostats vary but somewhere on the thermostat there will be a small screw or possibly allen socket. I forget which way I turned mine but turn the screw about a half a turn and then close the unit up and check the temperature again (overnight preferably). If it went in the right direction you're in good shape. If not, turn it back the same distance past the first setting and check it again. This resets the operating range of your thermostat.

1) your box may be low on freon, 2) fault thermostat may cause unit run non stop, causing evaporator to ice up and blocking air circulation, 3) Dirt condensor thus reducing operation efficiency.
Check the simplest problem first - make sure condensor coil is clean. if not, use a vacuum cleaner to clean condensor.
For # 2 is more likely if the evaporator has a fan. If it has, check to see if it runs; it is behind the back panel inside box. While at that, see if evaporator coil iced up. If it is defrost using hot water and turn it on setting thermostat to normal temp. setting. If it work fine and later develops same problem, replace thermostat.
If the above 2 solutions don't solve the problem, call a technician to check freon.
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.
Try just unplugging the unit and leave the door open for 24 hours. Your problem is sometimes caused by a heavy frost and ice build up on the evaporator plate behind the dispensing unit. After 24 hours, plug the unit back in, reset the thermostat to the 11:00 position and close the door. I hope this helps.
The temperature in the SkyBox is controlled by the thermostat located within the beverage compartment. If set too high, product can feeze. In addition ice will build up behind the dispenser assembly. The ice buildup can eventually make contact with the circulating fan blade and cause a constant noise.
You should hear the compressor stop running as you turn down the cold control, but prior to reaching the "off" position. Select a lower setting for the cold control, and unplug the unit for 24 hours with door open to thaw out the ice build up. Reconnect power to resume normal operation.
The SkyBox was built for Maytag by a company in China. Production stoppedabout 2 1/2 years ago, and Maytag purchased ALL available service parts available at that time. As inventories are depleted, there will be no more parts available.
An issue with the SkyBox involved a build up of frost and ice on the evaporator plate built into the wall behind the dispensor assembly. This build up insulated the product from the evaporator coil. It also caused the circulation fan to stop running. Unplug the unit and leave the door open for 24 hours. Plug it back in, set the thermostat indicator at the 11:00 position and close the door. See if this brings the temps back down to the 36 to 42 degree range, I hope this helps.
mine did the same thing. apparently, if the internal unit gets too cold, it freezes operation in some of the buttons. try turning up the temp to let it thaw, then try the button again. the downside is that when you turn down the temp again, you are likely going to face the same problem.
