Re: 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.

Dispensing Problems

I have just replaced a rack in a Skybox and did some disassembly to see what I could find. On the backside of each rack is a hub in which the drive motor mounts. Inside that hub is a card with two sensors on it which the white ribbon with the 4 wires connects to. One sensor is for the "Home" position which the dispensor goes to if it is empty. The other sensor reads a small piece of metal embedded in the flap which tucks up under the dispensing drum. It is not the flap which is just about horizontal as you you look into the machine. This piece of metal is sensed and tells the machine whether the flap has returned signalling if the machine is jammed. Ensure that this flap moves freely and move it around to see if the jam disappears. This is likley why many jams disappear if you open the door and close it firmly.

I had this exact same problem and it was the door sensor for the flipper where they come out. I used a door alarm contact and it fixed the issue. $5 to fix it and get it up and running again.

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

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.
