SOURCE: Skybox won't dispense anything

check the door where the cans come out. there is a sensor or the left side. if it is too far away from the door or if it's broken, it will do exactly what you said. i read somewhere that you can adjust the sensor closer to the door. i just bought one of the last one of these on the shelves 2 days ago and mine won't cool at all. stupid maytag..

SOURCE: One button dispenses every other time it is pressed

Mine had what sounds like the same problem, and it was just a little flap next to the rotating drum that was stuck. It should be flat normally. Grab a flashlight and you'll see that there is a flap across the bin just before the drum, push it down gently so it lays flat.

SOURCE: skybox beverage dispenser. will dispense one can

I had the same problem as well. The dispenser thinks that the flap is jammed or that the beverage is stuck in the machine. There is a small magnetic sensor on the door near the flap and there should be a small metal piece on the flap itself. I fixed mine by (gently) bending the sensor closer to the flap. The sensor should not touch the metal piece, but if there is too much space the sensor always reads "open".

If that doesn't work, you can tinker around a bit to make sure that all of the connections are firm and there is not a bunch of frost caked on the circuit board. My skybox needs to be defrosted periodically, since all of the motors and the circuit board get frozen in a block of ice.

You can get to the circuit board by removing the racks as a single unit. Don't try to take the racks apart until you take them out of the fridge.

F30 was the code. Now we are just hearing strange clicking sounds from the top of the front loader washing machine. Any ideas/suggestions?

you need to check mechanical linkage from dispenser motor to the top of the dispenser. Then check wire harness connection to the CCU board. Check dispenser motor to see if it is getting power. After all that unplug unit for 30 mins,,,,,,, then try again

ouch!!!, heres what i wouldlook for, foirst off remove the lower kickplate, from ther youll see a wire harness leading from the bottom of the door leading to a multi plug right in the front of machine, unplug this. from there i would want to check the individual wires coming from the door. a natural pinch point is created from opening and closing the door and results in ripping of the wires.. youll need to cut the spider like harness covering they use to protect wires, im thinkn a few of those wires are definalty sheared..bad part is the only fix for this as perwhirlpool ios replace teh door( $500+) if this is the case, yhou cannot wire nut the connections( not enought room, you can solderthewires or i have had some sucesse in using what they call "**** connectors" to reattach.. just leave the harness unplugged till rectified( dont want to "short " anythin out

GE Profile Refrigerator Ice/Water dispenser not working

Had the same problem. Pressed button heard a click, saw zeroes flash, then nothing. After some online search I found and solved the problem. Corrosion and condensation on the connector plug attached to the wire at the bottom of the freezer door. Remove plastic grill, pull out wire from under box. You'll find a plastic connector and possibly wet or corroded wiring. CUT POWER TO FRIDGE OFF FIRST. I cut away the white plastic connector then stripped and tied the wires together with wire caps. Taped them up too. Note which wire goes to which first. Mine was blue to blue, black to black, and red to white. Problem solved.
