Question about Maytag MBV1976AAP Beverage Cooler

5 Answers

Maytag Sky Box, Model MBV1976AAP

My Sky Box quit working (cooling). I took it apart and found a large circular chunk of ice had formed on the backside of the beverage dispensing assembly. The compressor is working, but the circulating fan is not. I removed the circuit board and found it to be corroded. It is three years old. Is this a warrantable part? If not, is it available for purchase, and if so, where? I cannot find any info on this product through any search engines.

    We have the same problem. I contacted Sam's Club where we purchased it and they said they would give me my money back, but we want this machine repaired, cause it's part of our bar.

    Master_Tech, could I also get a copy of this service/repair manual. I am going to be digging into the relay issue of my Skybox and it would be handy to have close by. My email is corey_lubahn@fpl.com. Thanks!

    Master_Tech could I get a copy also, My internal fan works, but there is large ice buildup that forms after a few months which caused me to have to defrost the unit. Thank You. lowboy14@juno.com

Refrigerator side quits cooling and freezer still works. Do we need a repairman or is it a quick fix?


That sounds like a broken defrost heater or defrost heater thermostat. If you see front on the back service panel then that is a good indication the evaporator is plugged up like a chunk of ice. Unplug the ice box and let it thaw out. Do not take an ice pick to that evaporator! Let her thaw out naturally.
It takes about 2 weeks foce to build up to a blocked state. I have photosthemobilian_274.jpgThis is what a normal evaporator looks like

The refrigerator is not cooling


If your freezer is frosting up, fresh food section is warm: bad fan motor,defrost drain stopped up and forming slab of ice between the freezerand the fresh food section. Check heaters andterminator(defrost thermostat) unplug the ice box and let it defrostcompletely. Clear objects from drain. Check timer. Note to find thelocation of your timer look up your model number online here: APPLIANCEPARTSPROS.COM.
Check under the bottom for the fan motor to be running and the cobwebs, dust, dirt, and pet hair, off the condenser coils. If the fanunderneath has quit then the ice box won't get cold. BASIC REFRIGERATION REPAIR MANUAL

Ice cubes made by ice maker become large fused chunks over time.


Ice cubes will deteriorate over time if not used. They shrink due to defrosting of the freezer and will become stale.
Once the ice bin is full, turn the ice maker off until you use the cubes and or dump the cubes every 3 or 4 days and start over.

Moldy water dispenser area


If you go to geappliances.com click on service and support then click on use and care manuals you can download a use and care manual. Since the refrigerator is white I'd probably use a good bleach spray on the mold be sure to rinse well though so you don't end up ingesting bleach. Chunk of ice sounds like too much water or not enough cold and a qualified tech might not be a bad idea. Good Luck.

Skybox


I have a Sky box Model mbv1976aap series 10. It is complete but not working. I think it is the overload switch on the compressor as it arcs every time I plug it in. I don't want to fix it but I will sell parts for half price of parts direct website. I can be reached at scrapjunky@cox.net. I have dispensers, cooling fan, circuit boards, what do you need?

Maytag Sky Box Won't dispence


Since it's only one dispensor unit you should be able to eliminate "common" items and find out what controls just that one dispensor. The faint click may be from a bad relay (relay coil works but doesn't pass voltage on contacts). You will likely have to take the thing apart to check the control board. Here's a diagram of the unit so you can see where everything is at. I'd suspect the control board relay that controls that particular dispensor is bad or a loose wire, etc. http://www.partselect.com/Schematics/Maytag/VM10-1.gif
