    instead of buying new compressor you can try this any local technician with proper knowledge of your type of product can help you for this You need to put a new run capacitor on the compressor.

    do not throw it away thinking the compressor was bad but it could just the bad capacitor .
    From the same problems by others I see on here looks like Maytag had a bad batch of capacitors.Hope this helps you.

Hi there!

They really don't want to deal with you do they?

I suspect they want you to buy a whole new unit from them - or sign up to some kind of service deal.

Are you competent at replacing these - Brazing and refilling refrigerant? If you are, then consider a generic compressor from a similar sized appliance, As long as it's rated the same, it should work. You may need to fabricate different mounts, but would work for you.

If you are not competent at refrigeration repairs, I would suggest you contact a service technician to replace it with a similar unit off-the-shelf. Explain this up front, and that the company won't supply spares to you.
Get a written quote first from 3 engineers to do the work before agreeing to the work.

Hope this solves your problem.

    After reading many reviews of this unit, It seems that Maytag service is very poor to say the least.



    There are problems with control boards, compressor issues and relays for this unit.



    You may have been left it because it was broken, and is not a reliable unit.

    Try and find another user of these units who have something favourable to say before you spend good money on it for repair.

Replacement compressor for maytag skybox soda dispenser M#MPV1976AAP


A replacement compressor was NEVER made availible for this product. Be sure the problem is not just the start relay and overload. Buy a SUPCO URCO41 from an appliance parts distributor (www.marcone.com) for about $25.00. The installation instructions are on the package.

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.

Removing compressor from maytag skybox machine


Maytag never offered a compressor as a replacement part for the SkyBox. It simply was not cost effective. If you are sure the thermostat is supplying 120VAC to the compressor, then have a qualified service technician install a Supco URCO410 relay/capacitor/overload kit on the compressor. As with any sealed refrigeration system, the US Environmental Protection Agency requires that a certified refrigeration technician recover the refrigerant charge before accessing the sealed system.
I hope this helped.

Maytag skybox cooling


Is it cooling at all? Do you hear the compressor start or just a buzz for a few seconds? This sounds like a compressor or compressor start relay failure. Unplug the machine. Access the compressor and remove the relay that is plugged to the side of it. Shake it and see if it sounds like there are a lot of loose pieces in it. Inspect it for burned spots. If you find either one of these, it is bad. If it doesn't rattle or appear burned then the compressor is probably bad. Even if it seems ok, I would try a new one on it anyway. They aren't usually very expensive. If the relay is not the problem, check your owners manual for the warranty info. The compressor may still be covered by warranty even if the rest of the unit is out of warranty.
