Sorry, I don't have this problem.
My skybox flashed all lights and did not deliver.
I cleaned mildew off the photo eye on the left side of the tray flap
(very small) and my skybox continues to work to this day.

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.

How to replace overload relay in Maytag Skybox


I'm not sure what you mean by "overload relay". I designed the electronic controls for Skybox. I have some parts, all of the schematics. I do not have any of the refridgeration components.
I just ran across your question looking for Skybox graphic panels for mine. I'm not sure how I can get you what you need.

Mike - my Skybox is having the same issues - not cooling


thats the relay --- the relay controlls when the compressor works


some places try to sell you a capacitor and transformer

thats not the problems

capacitors store power and transformer steps power up or down for circuits

the problem was the overload relay--replaced and works just like new

maytag had no clue about the repair, only could say it was discontinued and they dont sell parts

Maytag skybox start relay is bad


you need to change the overload relay ---- there is a company called appliancezone.com

they sell the overload relay unit with all the parts for $26.00

email me back if you cant find it---- put in the model # for the skybox unit and you will see the item

item # 4387835

this is the problem -- if this relay goes bad the compressor will stay on and not supply cold air to the unit ----

For the soda name tags, I pulled logos off the internet and printed them the correct size on 20-pound paper. Different paper gives different translucence, so you might have to experiment to get the right amount of light coming through.
PS: thanks for the part no. on the relay
