Re: won't dispense

Check that the flapper door is closing properly. I had to open the door and trim the seal to get it to close correctly every time.

I had the same problem. Found the cover where the beverages dispense to be rusted and not resetting. After the can dispenses, just push the cover back into position and this should help.

Skybox all lights flash when you press a drink selection and nothing happens

the solution for my flashing lights/no beverage problem was so simple to solve.
There is a small sensor right next to the chute door that got
mildew on it from sweating.
I cleaned it with a wet cloth and have had no problems since.
Now I occasionally wipe down just for maintenance

Lights flashing

The flashing lights usually indicate a jam or the flapper door not met which means a drink already dispensed. Just guessing here, but you may have a board problem. I have removed one dispensing drive motor and if I press that button all lights blink until I open the door and close it. Any chance you have a lot of ice buildup in the back? That could be causing a short or even caused connectors to loosen. A new connector board is $22 on but that would again only be a guess. Check some of the other problems listed for other possibilities.

Why did i buy this? It never works!

I have cleaned the sensor on the door and it has fixed the problem, by wiping it off with a rag.

Skybox Flashing Lights

I had that problem too, in addition to a backwards cooling fan and the wrong thermostat. I needed to replace a sensor wire in the door, condensation had caused some rust on it.

TroJo, Try for Skybox parts. 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. Jonmon
