Question about Maytag SkyBox MBV1976A Beverage Dispenser

1 Answer

Maytag Skybox approx 4 1/2 yrs old

Somehow we lost the sales receipt but I did write the following on the manual==CX10294663. I am presuming this is the model #. It was purchased at Home Depot.

It is cooling BUT not like it was and we want to know if the compressor is still in warranty.

    If it is cooling at all the compressor is not the problem. Does the compressor run continuously or does it cycle on and off?

It may well be that the sealed system has partially lost its charge of refrigerant due to a leak. On these very small systems locating a leak can be very labor intensive and costly. At the compressor there will be two lines. With the compressor running the small line should be hot to the touch and the larger line cool to the touch. If the small line is barely warm it could be a sign of the shortage of refrigerant in the system. At the same time the larger line entering the compressor would be near or at room temperature.

Here is a site that has the manual for this. Good luck! Mine was a piece of ****! Had to have it repaired twice because ice builds up on the motor and THEN the compressor went out. Most refrigerators have a 5 year waranty on the compressor but not these things, its a ONE year! Never buying Maytag again!!
