    I had a similar problem a few years back, and the repair man came over and fixed my sky box. Now it has re-curred, and my sky box is no longer under warranty. I Had ice build up on the back of my unit. However, I do not know what he did to get to the back of the unit to rid the ice.

My maytag stooped cooling and does not sound like it is running


Hi,
Normally we have seen two issues.In one instance the water feed tube or trough stooped the flow of water to the ice maker and this produce a small transient water leak initially and then it stopped working and leaking eventually as the blocked tube did not thaw.
The other issue was ice in the ice maker that lodged in the blades of the ejector and prevented ice production.
Thanks for contacting Fixya.

Maytag Skybox stays at 50 degrees all the time


The SkyBox was built for Maytag by a company in China. Production stoppedabout 2 1/2 years ago, and Maytag purchased ALL available service parts available at that time. As inventories are depleted, there will be no more parts available.
An issue with the SkyBox involved a build up of frost and ice on the evaporator plate built into the wall behind the dispensor assembly. This build up insulated the product from the evaporator coil. It also caused the circulation fan to stop running. Unplug the unit and leave the door open for 24 hours. Plug it back in, set the thermostat indicator at the 11:00 position and close the door. See if this brings the temps back down to the 36 to 42 degree range, I hope this helps.

Maytag Skybox dispenser


read a post that said to manipulate the sensor a little, but when I found out where the sensor was (it is in the back of the door, behind the panel just to the right of the opening and the flap behind two screws) I found that there was nothing wrong with the sensor at all. The problem was simply that my door flap was not closing completely (and thus not tripping the sensor). It seems that if the door does not close completely that the machine thinks that there is a jam. I held the flap down completely and pushed the button and out came a drink from any button. I cleaned the flap and lubricated it with a little WD40 and BAM, back in business. I could not believe it was something so simple. It took two minutes to fix! Hope your has the same so it can be that simple.

Low product light stays on


You can go to partselect.com and purchase a new switch for the low product. It mounts on the back of the dispensing rack, item number is 18 on the assembly diagram. It is also possible that the existing switch has become unplugged from the board by ice buildup.

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.

Maytag Skybox "Is this normal?"


I have intermittent problems with one dispenser and disassembled the system1.gif and swapped drive motors for the dispensers. The problem followed the motor. Partselect.com shows that they sell the individual rack assemblies but I have not yet ordered one. I am trying electrical supply stores to see if I can just buy the motor but I doubt they will be able to track it as it has no markings.

Maytag Sky Box Won't dispence


Since it's only one dispensor unit you should be able to eliminate "common" items and find out what controls just that one dispensor. The faint click may be from a bad relay (relay coil works but doesn't pass voltage on contacts). You will likely have to take the thing apart to check the control board. Here's a diagram of the unit so you can see where everything is at. I'd suspect the control board relay that controls that particular dispensor is bad or a loose wire, etc. http://www.partselect.com/Schematics/Maytag/VM10-1.gif
