Dispensing Problems


I have just replaced a rack in a Skybox and did some disassembly to see what I could find. On the backside of each rack is a hub in which the drive motor mounts. Inside that hub is a card with two sensors on it which the white ribbon with the 4 wires connects to. One sensor is for the "Home" position which the dispensor goes to if it is empty. The other sensor reads a small piece of metal embedded in the flap which tucks up under the dispensing drum. It is not the flap which is just about horizontal as you you look into the machine. This piece of metal is sensed and tells the machine whether the flap has returned signalling if the machine is jammed. Ensure that this flap moves freely and move it around to see if the jam disappears. This is likley why many jams disappear if you open the door and close it firmly.

Skybox beverage dispenser. will dispense one can


I had the same problem. Found the cover where the beverages dispense to be rusted and not resetting. After the can dispenses, just push the cover back into position and this should help.

Maytag skybox 1976AAB wont dispence


I had the same problem. The hinge pin on the dispensing door was rusted and this kept the door from closing completly. The door sensor magnet was not making contact with the door sensor and this caused the error. I removed the pin, sanded it down and it before reinstalling. It works fine now.

Jamming dispencer for my skybox maytag.


You may not have a dispenser problem at all, but rather a build up of frost and ice. The evaporator is embedded in the interior wall directly behind the two middle dispensers. The dispenser effected most bt the ice build up is the second one from the bottom. Unplug the unit and leave the door open for 24 hours. Then plug it back in, reset your thermostat at the 11:00 position and close the door. If the problem is still present, the next step would be to remove the dispenser assembly and search carefully for a disc shaped magnet about the size og the leter "O" on your keyboard. There are 9 of these magnets in the SkyBox. The dispensing cylinder has one built in, as does the flap at the end of the dispensing row. When the cylinder moves to dispense a beverage, a reed switch detects the magnet. Next it looks for that flap at the end to open when the beverage falls down. Finally, as the beverage comes out in the door another reed switch detects the opening and closing of the flapper door. If the board does not see the signal from any of the reed switches, it assumes there is a product stuck someplace.
I hope this helps.

Looks like I found the answer to the problem of Skybox not dispensing. I replaced the sensor in the dispensing door and my Skybox now works great!
Part is available from partselect.com just look up your Skybox model number, mine was Skybox model MBV1976AAB. The diagram on the website should show you the exploded view of the door section of your Skybox. You are looking for partselect.com part number 901892 or on the exploded view it will be number 21. The Maytag part number is 11001182, board flipper sensor. My Skybox had been down for two years and now works again!

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.

Skybox won't dispense anything


check the door where the cans come out. there is a sensor or the left side. if it is too far away from the door or if it's broken, it will do exactly what you said. i read somewhere that you can adjust the sensor closer to the door. i just bought one of the last one of these on the shelves 2 days ago and mine won't cool at all. stupid maytag..
