Question about Maytag SkyBox MBV1976A Beverage Dispenser
Where can i find a replacement compressor. My machine has stopped cooling and several times i have replaced the starter relay, making it work for about a week before it stops. I think the compressor is overheating. Let me know for suggestions and/or fixes. Thanks

I just read another post on a different site from someone who said they were able to pay $160 for a refrigerator technician to come out and replace the compressor and install 2 additional fans to help prevent overheating. I'm going to look into this, otherwise off to the dump. Had ours for over 2.5 years and it just stopped cooling last week. Bunch of warm beer and sodas in there now...upsetting, but what do you expect when everything is made in China these days. Our country has let itself down for letting quality manufacturing give way to cheap labor.

SOURCE: Maytag skybox start relay is bad
you need to change the overload relay ---- there is a company called appliancezone.com
they sell the overload relay unit with all the parts for $26.00
email me back if you cant find it---- put in the model # for the skybox unit and you will see the item
item # 4387835
this is the problem -- if this relay goes bad the compressor will stay on and not supply cold air to the unit ----

SOURCE: Maytag Skybox not cooling
sounds like compressor relay --- if the fan and compressor come on and then shut off after about 5-10 seconds -- its the relay --- sometimes you have to also replace the transformer and capacitor on the opposite side of the unit --- all items are accesible from the back of the unit

SOURCE: 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.
