    I have the same issue. I called Maytag and they were like too bad, we don't make the compressor anymore so it can't be fixed. What a disgrace!!

    MY COMPRESSOR CLICKS ON FOR A FEW SECONDS THEN CLICKS OFF, IT OVERLOADS. DO YOU THINK THE PROBLEM IS THE COMPRESSOR OR COULD IT BE THE STARTER RELAY OR STARTING CAPACITOR? ANY SUGGESTIONS WOULD BE OF GREAT USE....THANK YOU.

    Check out compressors for water coolers. I am pretty sure they are teh exact size you want. I found this out after giving up trying to find a compressor and getting rid of my Skybox. :(

The solution is too change refrigertants, Enbraco makes the PW4.5hk11. its a little over sized and you'll need to switch to hot shot.

Replacement compressor for maytag skybox soda dispenser M#MPV1976AAP


A replacement compressor was NEVER made availible for this product. Be sure the problem is not just the start relay and overload. Buy a SUPCO URCO41 from an appliance parts distributor (www.marcone.com) for about $25.00. The installation instructions are on the package.

Removing compressor from skybox


Maytag never offered a replacement compressor for the SkyBox units. It was not a cost effective repar to make. If you are sure the thermostat is supplying 120VAC to the compressor, you can install a Supco URCO410 relay/capacitor/overload kit. This part should only be installed by a qualified service technician.

Removing compressor from maytag skybox machine


Maytag never offered a compressor as a replacement part for the SkyBox. It simply was not cost effective. If you are sure the thermostat is supplying 120VAC to the compressor, then have a qualified service technician install a Supco URCO410 relay/capacitor/overload kit on the compressor. As with any sealed refrigeration system, the US Environmental Protection Agency requires that a certified refrigeration technician recover the refrigerant charge before accessing the sealed system.
I hope this helped.

Maytag did not offer any parts for the compressor on the SkyBox. Purchase a SUPCO URCO410 relay/overload/capacitor kit and install it per the instructions on the package.

For the soda name tags, I pulled logos off the internet and printed them the correct size on 20-pound paper. Different paper gives different translucence, so you might have to experiment to get the right amount of light coming through.
PS: thanks for the part no. on the relay
