Question about Maytag SkyBox MBV1976A Beverage Dispenser
I have a Maytag Skybox which has stopped cooling. I see from the other posts here that it is commonly a relay problem. I see two different parts given to repair this, one is a Whirlpool 4387835 relay and overload and the other is a three-in-one relay/overload/capacitor (either a ERP410 or a Supco RC0410). Are these the same parts and does it matter which one I get? Also, can you provide me with instructions for how to replace this. I am an Electrical Engineer so I don't think it should be too hard, but it never hurts to have instructions. Also, can you email me a service manual for this unit. I have the owners manual but it is of absolutely no help. My email address is email@example.com. Thank you for your time.
My skybox was still working, but every now and then it would sound like it was shorting out and the leds on the front would dim. Turns out the compressor was drawing too much amps due to a faulty starter relay. Upon reading alot of these posts, i took the advice and bought the whirlpool 4387835 kit. Only took me a couple minutes to swap it out and im back in business! Thanx

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
