    I have the same problem that my Skybox MBV1976AAB is not cooling. I took the "relay" of the compressor and it did make a rattling sound.The part number on it says 307015. When I call Maytag they say this part number is for a vent panel now and did not have any part named relay switch? Tried partselect.com and they sent me a transformer could not find the part I needed. Does any one know Where I can find this part? Thanks

Is it cooling at all? Do you hear the compressor start or just a buzz for a few seconds? This sounds like a compressor or compressor start relay failure. Unplug the machine. Access the compressor and remove the relay that is plugged to the side of it. Shake it and see if it sounds like there are a lot of loose pieces in it. Inspect it for burned spots. If you find either one of these, it is bad. If it doesn't rattle or appear burned then the compressor is probably bad. Even if it seems ok, I would try a new one on it anyway. They aren't usually very expensive. If the relay is not the problem, check your owners manual for the warranty info. The compressor may still be covered by warranty even if the rest of the unit is out of warranty.

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!

Sears.com is selling skybox parts. Go to appliance and parts and put in the model number of the skybox it is either mbv1976aab or mbv1976aap -- you can find this on the back of the skybox. It might have the part you need.

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
