Question about Maytag SkyBox MBV1976A Beverage Dispenser
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.
