Skybox compressor is out can not find replacement-maytag no help!

From what I remember, no parts are avable for repairs. They don't want you to fix, they want you to replace.

I have a SkyBox vending machine. It has stopped completely cooling the drinks. The get a bit cool, but don't get cold. I suspect that it is out of freon. Is this somehting I can fix myself or is there...

You will definitely need a professionals help here because if the freon/refrigerant has leaked out then there is a leak that needs to be found and repaired. Then the system must be dried completely before being recharged and this takes special tools and knowledge. Definitely a techs job. good luck!

I lost a gray screw in leg for my Maytag Skybox, I'm looking for a replacement one. Can you help me out. It is model #MBV1976AAP. Thanks, Brett

Hi Brett and welcome to FixYa, I am Kelly,

The screw is a 4.2 x 16 mm screw and you can find it here: (item 13)
You should be able to find something close at a local hardware and make it work with some modifications but.. to be sure order it.

The screw actual part number 11001109 is currently out of stock but ships in 5 - 6 days. It is not stocked on most sites: (first 6 listings)

Thanks for choosing FixYa,

We've got a Maytag SkyBox that no longer cools. I think it needs a new compressor, but of course, none exists. Is there a different compressor that we can rig up to work?

make a note of the gas type used and all the numbers and codes on the compressor. a good refrigeration spares supplier will be able to give an alternative. replacing a compressor is not a diy job

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.

Maytag Skybox Beverage Dispenser Not Cooling is selling skybox parts. Go to appliance and parts and put in the model number of the skybox it is either mbv1976aab or mbv1976aap -- you can find this on the back of the skybox. It might have the part you need.

I have a service manual, but you are screwed if you want to buy parts. They simply are not available
