The flipper door switch is there to prevent a second beverage from being dispensed before the first one has been removed. Broken bottles would be the result. The switch consists if a very small magnet in the flipper door, and a small circuit board with a hall effect sensor. Verify the magnet is there. Unplug the Skybox and carefully remove the circuit board. You will see corrosion from the moisture on the board. Use a small stiff brush with a water and baking soda solution to remove the corrosion. The board, except for the sensor at the edge of the board, can be lightly coated with blue electrical silicone (found at any auto parts store) to prevent the corrosion from reoccurring. Replace the board and enjoy. I hope this helped.

SOURCE: where can I find a maytag flipper door sensor?

I just wanted to post how I repaired my flipper sensor board (11001182 ) for my Skybox Beverage Dispenser to help the next person looking for this impossible to find part. I repaired mine by removing the flipper sensor board and replaced the Hall Effect switch (looks like a transistor) with another one using part number A3213EUA-T (google it. Its also available on Amazon funny enough). If you are handy with a soldering iron this is an easy fix. On mine the circuit trace near the screw through hole on the circuit board was also damaged so I soldered a wire across it after scraping it clean. I then coated everything with black silicone glue to help keep the moisture under control and put it back in. Works perfectly.

I thought I had a flipper door sensor problem but what was actually wrong was the magnet was missing from the door that tripped the sensor. That was a fun $4 magnet purchase.

The part I need for my Maytag Skybox is NO LONGER AVAILABLE! UGH!!! Part# 11001182 Door Flipper Sensor. Is there a way to "short out" the old sensor so that it "always" shows the door in the proper...

You can not short it out as the purpose is to tell the board that a dispensed beveraged has been removed from the bin. It will not dispense another beverage until the signal is received. The danger could be a second "glass" bottle coming down into one in the bin and breaking. The small board can be removed, cleaned with a very small stiff bristled brush, then reinstalled. It contains a hall effect sensor that reacts to a magnet in the flipper door.
