Maytag Skybox does not dispense - I recently purchased a used Skybox Vending Machine. It works great, with the exception of the buttons do not trigger the machine to dispense.
It appears that when the lights are turned on that all four of the lights come on, but I cannot tell if they are coming on by themselves, or if it is just the main lights flowing into the lights. When I press any of the buttons, I do not hear anything triggering and nothing happens with the lights. I have been reading some of the fixes on here, but they are a decade old in some cases. Wondering if anyone has a good fix for this now. Thanks!

The Maytag SkyBox is not a commercial vending machine. It is designed for INDOOR use only. The possibility of electric shock is likely from a unit that has gotten wet. In addition, the electronics are not designed to withstand the outdoor elements.
mine did the same thing. apparently, if the internal unit gets too cold, it freezes operation in some of the buttons. try turning up the temp to let it thaw, then try the button again. the downside is that when you turn down the temp again, you are likely going to face the same problem.
Looks like I found the answer to the problem of Skybox not dispensing. I replaced the sensor in the dispensing door and my Skybox now works great! Part is available from partselect.com just look up your Skybox model number, mine was Skybox model MBV1976AAB. The diagram on the website should show you the exploded view of the door section of your Skybox. You are looking for partselect.com part number 901892 or on the exploded view it will be number 21. The Maytag part number is 11001182, board flipper sensor. My Skybox had been down for two years and now works again!

I ordered a part on Monday night and installed it on Wednesday night.
The parts are not that hard to find.
Appliance repair services can replace your compressor or add freon.
Be sure you have plenty of ventilation behind your machine.
