There is a known problem with the HV control board on your model Maytag Ice2O French Door refrigerator. The cost of the repair is covered by Maytag. You must call your local Maytag shop to schedule a repair and also you, the owner, must call Maytag directly to have the HV Control Board shipped to you at no cost. When you receive the part, call your local Maytag shop to tell them that you have part on hand.

To stop the door cycling open and closed, reomve the hinge cover on the top left of the refrigerator. You should see the wiring and the wiring connector. Gently but firmly disconnect the connector and the LED display and the dispenser door should turn off. Of course, once the defective control board is replaced, the technicain should reconnect the wiring and check for proper operation.

I have a Skybox by Maytag - it has been running great for 6 years. Now it is leaking water everywhere. Not sure where it is coming from. I opened the back pannel and there is water inside on the bottom...


The drain in the freezer behind back lower panel
needs opening. You can see it at the bottom of the back panel
underneath the evaporator coils. (The cold coils)
Run Hot water in the drain until it clears or use a hairdryer.
When the defrost melts the water it goes down the drain
If the drain is clogged with Ice or ? The defrost water
overflows into the ref. or freezer or on floor
Run Hot water in the drain until it clears or use a hairdryer.
Also check fan undernearh Ref in the rear
Clean condenser coils underneath

My maytag stooped cooling and does not sound like it is running


Hi,
Normally we have seen two issues.In one instance the water feed tube or trough stooped the flow of water to the ice maker and this produce a small transient water leak initially and then it stopped working and leaking eventually as the blocked tube did not thaw.
The other issue was ice in the ice maker that lodged in the blades of the ejector and prevented ice production.
Thanks for contacting Fixya.

Cans are not cold enough


Try just unplugging the unit and leave the door open for 24 hours. Your problem is sometimes caused by a heavy frost and ice build up on the evaporator plate behind the dispensing unit. After 24 hours, plug the unit back in, reset the thermostat to the 11:00 position and close the door. I hope this helps.

Skybox is freezing and making a humming noice.


The temperature in the SkyBox is controlled by the thermostat located within the beverage compartment. If set too high, product can feeze. In addition ice will build up behind the dispenser assembly. The ice buildup can eventually make contact with the circulating fan blade and cause a constant noise.
You should hear the compressor stop running as you turn down the cold control, but prior to reaching the "off" position. Select a lower setting for the cold control, and unplug the unit for 24 hours with door open to thaw out the ice build up. Reconnect power to resume normal operation.

Maytag MBB1954GES not cold. Fresh food area warm, motor not on. Freezer OK.


Check the freezer fan is running with the door switch pushd in by hand, check the back wall of the freezer for frosting if it's frosty check the defrost system eg defrost element, Defrost termination stat and defrost timer. If the freezers running perfect check the fridge difuser/damper and see if it's open this is the part that opens and closes the vent between the freezer and fridge to allow cold air into the fridge. The Damper is up the top left corner of the fridge. cheers.

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.

Problem may be the PCB board (w/Sensor) for the Flipper Door. It has a tendency to become corroded due to condensation that can build up by the door. Maytag replacement part number is 11001182. Part is hard to find. I was able to get one after much searching. Within 3 days it was out of stock again.

To combat the condensation (and ICE build up on the rear main board), turn the fridge down to half and keep the front lights off as much as possible. You may want to play with the settings a little depending on the area of the country you are in (dry Arizona as opposed to wet Washington State) but you shouldn't have to go below half.

Even though the lights are flouresent, they still throw off a lot of heat which causes condensation. The fridge runs longer to combat the heat so the added moisture freezes in the back (where the cooling elements are) and the condensation builds up in the front where the sensor and heat source is. It's cool enough in front to hinder evaporation and because the fridge runs longer you don't get that defrost period (if you will) in the back that regular frost free refrigerators or freezers have, thus the ice build up. This will greatly reduce condensation but may not get rid of it all. The front door is not to well insulated. 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!

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..

Maytag Sky Box Won't dispence


Since it's only one dispensor unit you should be able to eliminate "common" items and find out what controls just that one dispensor. The faint click may be from a bad relay (relay coil works but doesn't pass voltage on contacts). You will likely have to take the thing apart to check the control board. Here's a diagram of the unit so you can see where everything is at. I'd suspect the control board relay that controls that particular dispensor is bad or a loose wire, etc. http://www.partselect.com/Schematics/Maytag/VM10-1.gif
