SOURCE: 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.

Where is the fan located?


The fan is located behind the bin dispenser assembly. It is a low voltage fan, and runs as soon as the SkyBox is plugged in. The thermostat controls only the compressor.

My Matag Skybox compressor will not turn on. I can here it clicking and trying to come on.


HI. This is a strong indication of starter/overload relay failure. This clicking noise is coming directly fromm the relay device. it is damaged. this relay is the main starter of the compressor unit. It receives a signal from the main PCB. Once the power signal is received, the relay will regulate the starting, and stopping of the compressor, via control board and thermostat assembly. The failed relay will need to be replaced, asap. Once replaced, the unit will operate correctly. The relay is mounted on the side of the compressor. Once the bracket, and terminal wires are removed, you can gently pull it away form the compressor, to check the contacts and connections for corrosion. If any of the contacts or terminal connections are worn, replace them. Worn contacts, or corroded connections will not allow for proper current flow.

NOTE_ I would advise to locate the clicking. Make sure its coming form the compressor/relay location. There are some units of this nature out there that are fixed(compressor and relay intergraion). If this is the case, simply replace the entire compressor unit. If the clickiong is coming from the main control board(PCB), the PCB, will be the culprit.

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.

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.

Maytag Skybox stays at 50 degrees all the time


The SkyBox was built for Maytag by a company in China. Production stoppedabout 2 1/2 years ago, and Maytag purchased ALL available service parts available at that time. As inventories are depleted, there will be no more parts available.
An issue with the SkyBox involved a build up of frost and ice on the evaporator plate built into the wall behind the dispensor assembly. This build up insulated the product from the evaporator coil. It also caused the circulation fan to stop running. Unplug the unit and leave the door open for 24 hours. Plug it back in, set the thermostat indicator at the 11:00 position and close the door. See if this brings the temps back down to the 36 to 42 degree range, 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!
