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.

Does not cool and compressor relay keeps intermittently buzzing every 1 to 2 minutes. Condenser coils are cleaned and when you check across the overload protector pins there is no continuity.


When there's not continuity across the overload is because the compresor overheated , it could be the relay or the compressor that is burned out or stuck .I would let the compresor coold down for a few hours (unplugging the unit) and replace the relay (no more than $20) and if still having problems the compressor needs to be replaced.

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.

Fridge freezer not working/power ok,


If the compresor is very hot and won't start,the clicking you heard is the overload at the compresor that goes on & off beacause the relay ,that makes the compresor start is bad or the compresor is bad ,if you know how check the compresors coil if not try replacing the relay with a same replacement(no more than $20 or $30) if still won't start the compresor needs to be replaced.

Compressor not kicking in. sounds like it is trying to. everything else is working fine. not getting cold.


Its sound like the compresor is off on overload ,eithe you have a bad relay(located on the side of the compresor under a black plastic cover ,cost about $20 or is a bad compresor wich cost alot more.I will try the relay first.

No cooling,compressor comes on and shuts off quickly


All refrigerators compresors have a relay and a overload thermal protector ,both are located on the side of the compresor behind a black plastic cover atached to the compresor with a metal clip(or just the cover snaps in on the compresor).Unplugged the fridge ,pullout the cover and you'll see the relay and the overload replaced them (no more than $30).If this doesn't solve the problem you have a bad compresor, wich is a much more expensive job.

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.

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
