SOURCE: Vending machine issues

Only the fan at the compressor turns on and off with the compressor cycle. The evaporator fan runs steady to maintain air circulation and temperature balance and to affect evaporator defrost in the off cycle. Sometimes the condenser fan will run continuously to assist in the evaporation of condensed moisture from the evaporator drainage.

I also have one of these vending machines. The problem Maytag had with these and the reason why they are discontinued is that it was not made with an automatic defroster. SO, ice litterally builds up on the entire motor in the back and then the buttons do not work. Here is an easy test. Unplug the machine for 24 hours and if there is ice on the motor it will melt off(to where I dont know!!). Try the buttons again and see if they work. Mine did. They also had to come out and replace one of the pieces inside because the ice broke it! Mine by the way does not work anymore because the other problem they have had with these is that the compressor goes bad!! Once THAT happens, its more expensive to fix than it's worth! Good luck! Maytag SUCKS!!!

SOURCE: Maytag "Skybox" Model# MBV1976AA. Stopped cooling.

Have you tried cleaning it underneath?

Unplug it and from the back and underneath get all the dust and debris out. When it's clear, leave it on number 3 for 6 to 8 hours and see what happens.

If the compressor is running then this has a sealed system issue and that is not repairable in many cases.

Sounds like the refrigerant gas has leaked out. Any reputable refrigeration engineer can fix this.
