Question about Maytag SkyBox MBV1976A Beverage Dispenser
Like many of you out there I was having the same problem with 1 of the 4 bottle/can racks not wanting to dispense any pop. At first when you hit the button of the failing rack I heard a gear turn and some clicking. As time progressed all I heard was a popping sound and then nothing. Last evening I took a flashlight and looked in the unit and to my surprise I saw that a HUGE amount of ice had built up on the back side of the dispensing rack. I took the dispensing rack out and found that the ice block had completely consumed all of the wiring and motors on the back. The ice had actually pulled 2 wires out of the main board as it expanded. Is this massive build up of ice normal and if not what can I do to prevent it? I will be putting the unit back together this evening and I will let you know if it works correctly. Thanks for any insight on the ice build up problem.
See tip on main Skybox page. It could be a bad card, sensor or the flap may not be returning to the sensor.

I have intermittent problems with one dispenser and disassembled the system and swapped drive motors for the dispensers. The problem followed the motor. Partselect.com shows that they sell the individual rack assemblies but I have not yet ordered one. I am trying electrical supply stores to see if I can just buy the motor but I doubt they will be able to track it as it has no markings.
