    I have one button that does not work(2nd from top). The motor does not attempt to engage. The bar on this shelf is also always level unlike levels 3 and 4. Any help would be appreciated.

Try unplugging the unit and letting it thaw. Mine had the same problem where it sounded like it was trying to dispense, but wouldn't. Someone else suggested this solution, and after letting it sit for a day unplugged, all buttons worked fine after plugging back in. Beware though, you may get a puddle on the floor if it is froze up.

The maytag skybox doesn't get cold anymore. we had it outside for a while (we didn't realize you couldn't have it outside) & it worked great all last summer. this spring, we realized it...


First you need to find out if the compressor is kicking on or not. If it isn't then it could be the starting capacitor (item 23), start relay (item 7) or the compressor itself. Since you had it outside I would suspect the capacitor or relay. http://www.searspartsdirect.com/partsdirect/part-model/Maytag-Parts/Refrigerator-Parts/Model-MBV1976AAB/3048/0168000/M0510224/00001

Does the skybox make noise (like your refrigerator starting a cycle)? If not, I would unplug it for a short while and let it set. Then when you plug it back up listen for noises on whether the compressor kicks on or not. If it doesn't then you can check the cap and relay board. Or have your compressor checked for operation and freon.

Maytag skybox stopped cooling Skybox stopped cooling. Sounds like the relay will kick on briefly and then click off. Everything else works. I took the back panel off and could hear the relay clicking on...


The relay on your box is damaged.. You have to get it replaced.. Not to be tried by a novice but if you have some experience in electronics it can be fixed by you. The relay costs around 75$. Good luck!

SkyBox second button will not dispense


If nothing happens, the switch behind the button must be broken, or something on the PCB that the button is mounted to is broken. But if lights blink, then the button is ok and the problem is with the motor or some sensor. I have a troubleshooting guide for the dispensing system (better than Maytag ever published), as I was directly involved in the design of this product. This does not cover the refridgeration system, as that was provided by our Chinese manufacturer. Please email me at: garymyers@insight.rr.com if anyone wants this guide.

CAN A SKYBOX 'MAYTAG' BE PERMENENTLY INSTALLED OUTSIDE


The Maytag SkyBox is not a commercial vending machine. It is designed for INDOOR use only. The possibility of electric shock is likely from a unit that has gotten wet. In addition, the electronics are not designed to withstand the outdoor elements.

Rack Not Dispensing, Looking For a Replacement Motor


Let me tall you what we have just learned...
1. When Whirlpool bought Maytag, they dumped the Skybox and all parts associated with it. The parts are no longer being manufactured from what they tell us.
2. We have had our unit less than 3 years and replaced the two center motors and have the bottom one going out now.
3. We are having cooling and icing up issues.
4. When you speak with Whirlpool they are unwilling to help.
5. We have gone to electrical supply and repair folks and since the motors are not marked, they say it could be one of about 1000!.
6. We are ordering parts from parts select so we have some.

I think we should find a way to rally together and get some cooperation form Whirlpool. $600+ is a bit much to spend for a couple of years use.
