I just wanted to post how I repaired my flipper sensor board (11001182 ) for my Skybox Beverage Dispenser to help the next person looking for this impossible to find part. I repaired mine by removing the flipper sensor board and replaced the Hall Effect switch (looks like a transistor) with another one using part number A3213EUA-T (google it. Its also available on Amazon funny enough). If you are handy with a soldering iron this is an easy fix. On mine the circuit trace near the screw through hole on the circuit board was also damaged so I soldered a wire across it after scraping it clean. I then coated everything with black silicone glue to help keep the moisture under control and put it back in. Works perfectly.

I thought I had a flipper door sensor problem but what was actually wrong was the magnet was missing from the door that tripped the sensor. That was a fun $4 magnet purchase.

REMOVE 3 WIRES ON SMALL BOARD RIGHT AT BOARD SURFACE. LOOK FOR END WIRE WITH X PRINTED ON IT ,PUT OFF THE SIDE. YOU WILL NOT USE X WIRE. SKIN CENTER WIRE AND END WIRE , THESE ARE WHAT YOU WILL HOOK UP. DO NOT TOUCH 2 OUTER WIRES THESE ARE DEAD SHORT. IF YOU DO NOT SEE X ON WIRE DO NOT WORRY CENTER WIRE AND 1  END WIRE WILL NOT SHORT. JUST BOTH OUTER WIRES DO NOT CONNECT. GET SET OF RADIO SHACK WINDOW ALARMS MEGNETIC CLOSE AT CONTACT. SILICONE SCREW TERMINAL MAGNET TO UPPER RIGHT SIDE SOLID DOOR EDGE AND OTHER MAGNET TO UPPER RIGHT FLAPPER DOOR ABOUT 1 INCH FROM EACH OTHER DO NOT USE SCREWS. REMOVE DOOR AND LAY FLAT IF NEEDED. THEN HOOK UP 2 WIRES AS DESCRIBED. IF YOU ARE NOT SURE OF 2 WIRES HOOK UP MIDDLE WIRE TO EITHER OUTSIDE WIRE ONE WILL WORK AND ONE WILL NOT. AFTER SILICONE DRIES HOOK UP WIRES . NOW YOU HAVE A WAY TO RESET  CYCLE , IF YOU USE GLASS BOTTLES YOU MAY NEED TO HOOK UP NO-NC 2 TERMINAL WITH COMMON TERM. SWITCH.

The lights sensors are not the problem.

Garage door will reverse direction automatically if it contacts the hood of your car or a bicycle. Your garage door is coming too far down, impacting the concrete, and then reversing.

The fix is simple.

You need to adjust the tripper switch just above the garage door. When the door is closing, it trips a little lever that's attached to the center rail. It's just a little flipper with 2 wires connected to it.

Move this flipper switch back tower the closer mechanism about 3 inches >>> try garage door again >> and then adjust location of flipper until garage door works just right.

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.

Dispencer will send out can and then stop


What are the front-door lights doing when it stops? There are other posts about this. It's very likely that the flipper door sensor has corroded. With power off, remove the sensor board and clean it with a stiff brush (remove ALL corrosion), then coat it with blue oxygen-sensor-safe RTV (auto parts store), let dry, then re-install. I have all of the information necessary to make new flipper door sensors. I also have the manufacturing troubleshooting guide. garymyers@insight.rr.com

You can not short it out as the purpose is to tell the board that a dispensed beveraged has been removed from the bin. It will not dispense another beverage until the signal is received. The danger could be a second "glass" bottle coming down into one in the bin and breaking. The small board can be removed, cleaned with a very small stiff bristled brush, then reinstalled. It contains a hall effect sensor that reacts to a magnet in the flipper door.

Problem may be the PCB board (w/Sensor) for the Flipper Door. It has a tendency to become corroded due to condensation that can build up by the door. Maytag replacement part number is 11001182. Part is hard to find. I was able to get one after much searching. Within 3 days it was out of stock again.

To combat the condensation (and ICE build up on the rear main board), turn the fridge down to half and keep the front lights off as much as possible. You may want to play with the settings a little depending on the area of the country you are in (dry Arizona as opposed to wet Washington State) but you shouldn't have to go below half.

Even though the lights are flouresent, they still throw off a lot of heat which causes condensation. The fridge runs longer to combat the heat so the added moisture freezes in the back (where the cooling elements are) and the condensation builds up in the front where the sensor and heat source is. It's cool enough in front to hinder evaporation and because the fridge runs longer you don't get that defrost period (if you will) in the back that regular frost free refrigerators or freezers have, thus the ice build up. This will greatly reduce condensation but may not get rid of it all. The front door is not to well insulated. Hope this helps.

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!

Skybox won't dispense anything


check the door where the cans come out. there is a sensor or the left side. if it is too far away from the door or if it's broken, it will do exactly what you said. i read somewhere that you can adjust the sensor closer to the door. i just bought one of the last one of these on the shelves 2 days ago and mine won't cool at all. stupid maytag..
