Skybox not cooling

Our Skybox has stopped cooling....Everything else seems to be working fine, dispenser, fan, etc.....Can hear it kicking on, but after a few seconds it kicks right back off.....I've seen the response suggesting where to get parts....My question is, any idea as to what is wrong with it and/or what part might I need?...Thank you in advance for any and all help!

Ok...so here is the news.
most likely a little relay in the back. You can hear it click on and off. I am currntly looking for the part for a good price so I can fix it.

In the mean time i called the number in the manual. I told them the issue and said that I have had it for over 7 years with no warrentee of any kind but am looking for either service or parts. They said sorry but the Maytag parts store for this model went out of business and for my inconvienance we will mail you $100.00. No joke.

I recieved a 100.00 check for my trouble and the part is less than 20 shipped. they even gave me the option to get a 20% coupon for any maytag appliance instead but I took the money.

Good luck.

Try this and get your money and then worry about fixing it later.

Maytag skybox stopped cooling Skybox stopped cooling. Sounds like the relay will kick on briefly and then click off. Everything else works. I took the back panel off and could hear the relay clicking on...


The relay on your box is damaged.. You have to get it replaced.. Not to be tried by a novice but if you have some experience in electronics it can be fixed by you. The relay costs around 75$. Good luck!

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.

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
