Question about Maytag SkyBox MBV1976A Beverage Dispenser

1 Answer

Beer won't dispense, last one furthest to the right.

Eveything works fine except the last button furthest to the right. The light stays red and nothing dispenses when the button is pushed. In time will all my buttons not work? Do I need to clean something? Any advice will be appreciated.

Re: Beer won't dispense, last one furthest to the right.

Have you checked the child-lock buttons?  They are located on the right side of the machine and are accessible only when the door is opened.

What are the two red led lights on a skybox circuit board for? Mine are lit up and the unit won't cool. Is that an indication of what is wrong? If so, any idea what it is?

The red lights on the board indicate it is working properly. The purpose of the board is to control the dispensing of the beverages, and has nothing to do with the cooling process. You have a cold control (thermostat) inside the refrigerated area. The cold control is like a switch that sends 120vac to the compressor when cooling is needed. The failure of the unit to cool would be either a bad cold control, compressor, or compressor start relay. Testing of live electrical circuits should be left to a qualified service technician.

SkyBox second button will not dispense

If nothing happens, the switch behind the button must be broken, or something on the PCB that the button is mounted to is broken. But if lights blink, then the button is ok and the problem is with the motor or some sensor. I have a troubleshooting guide for the dispensing system (better than Maytag ever published), as I was directly involved in the design of this product. This does not cover the refridgeration system, as that was provided by our Chinese manufacturer. Please email me at: if anyone wants this guide.

Skybox won't dispense. Door lights on, but no button lights at al

check the unit out to see if its frozen up. there is also sensors that corrode on them due to condensation. if it is frozen just unplug it and let it thaw out.

Maytag Skybox - Dispense Problem/Lights Flashing

I returned the machine to where I bought it. It not only didn't dispense, it also didn't refrigerate. sorry I don't have an answer for you.

3/4 buttons work

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.

Maytag Skybox Beverage Dispenser/Refrigerator

TroJo, Try for Skybox parts. I ordered a part on Monday night and installed it on Wednesday night. The parts are not that hard to find. Appliance repair services can replace your compressor or add freon. Be sure you have plenty of ventilation behind your machine. Jonmon
