Question about Maytag SkyBox MBV1976A Beverage Dispenser

Won't dispense anything

All four slots won't dispense anything. Nothing happens when you press any of the buttons. I checked all the child safety locks. I had taken the door off the machine and let it sit for a few days to make sure it didn't just freeze up.

    Contact alot of service people --no one can get a schematic to troubleshoot it.

    Exact same problem here. One day it worked and the next day it didn't. When I push the buttons they all light up but nothingn dispenses. Maytag doesn't have ANYTHING related to Skybox on its website anymore. Can't find user's manual to try and troubleshoot myself. Any ideas on how to FIX it?

I had the same problem and it turned out to be two parts. The flapper door sensor was bad, and the transformer was bad. You can get both pretty cheap from

It is either a bad control board or a transformer.

Frigidaire galaxy series makes ice but won't dispense

If nothing at all happens then check the micro switch on the lever/button section. This will probably require taking the dispenser section off. If nothing at all is happening its as though it doesn't register the dispense, if the switch worked then at least something would happen ie the flap, the drive motor etc

Crosley CAWC529PQ1 won't turn on.

First, you'll need to make sure you have the proper voltage at the outlet, and the power cord terminals fit tightly into the outlet slots. Based on your post, you most likely have a faulty electronic control board.
Here is the board to order.

Kitchenaid kudi01ilwh2 won't start

By won't start do you mean that everything is set ok but when you press Start button then nothing happens.

In that case most likely the door is not sitting properly or the door latch or door switch is faulty causing the dishwasher to not start.

However, if nothing happens on the panel when you press buttons but power is there, then most likely the panel is faulty and can be replaced.

you can trace the parts in these diagrams.

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.
