Sky Box Has Stopped Cooling

Like many other I to have a skybox that has stopped cooling. It will try to run for 10 seconds teh turn off and will cycle like this every minute or so.

I see where a recomendation was made to use a Whirlpool kit # 4387535 however I also see another kit # 4387835 recommended. Looking at Whirlpools site both numbers are vaild, Which is correct?

As a back-up I've also ordered teh Supco URC0410. Is this the Supco teh better option ? It would also be great if I could get a better schematic.

I've talked to a local repair shop that says tehy can replace teh compressor with a similar model but tell me I'm looking at about a $600 bill.

    I would not say rapid. More like every minute or two.



    I had a repair guy look at it today he said the click was the relay kicking and teh compressor didn't start becasue its bad. He didn't say this with a real strong commitment and when he first arrived and saw teh skybox he asked me what it was. Hence I have no faith in his oppinion.

    Any insight to the two different Whirpool part numbers

    Thanks for the tip. Got my part and installed it very quickly. So much for teh repairman saying I need a new compressor.

# 4387535 is the correct part number.

Only the wiring harness should be different.... essentially the same part.

THE PROBLEM U ARE DESCRIBING IS A LOW REFRIGERANT CHARGE, RAPID CYCLING CORRECT?, THIS IS THE SAME NO MATTER WHAT THE REFRIGERATION UNIT DOES, COOL DRINKS OR A CAR. U NEED TO HAVE A LEAK TEST PERFORMED AND THE SYSTEM WILL NEED A CHARGING/PRESSURE TEST KIT INSTALLED.

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!

I need a universal starter relay for model 1976AAB sky box compressor. I was informed that I required #61005504 part and it was not correct. The relay fits over a three pin compressor contact.


Chick, you may want to take a look at 'Solution 1' on this FixYa thread for the part number you're looking for.
Not sure if you're having the same issue I was with my Skybox (unit stopped getting cold, compressor would attempt to click on for 8-10 seconds, then click off), but I just followed steps from the video krause28 provided on 'Solution 9' of this FixYa thread and I'm up and running.
Just completed it today and it's working now, so I don't have any long-term results yet, but hopefully that does it.
Good luck! -TD

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
