The Maytag SkyBox is not a commercial vending machine. It is designed for INDOOR use only. The possibility of electric shock is likely from a unit that has gotten wet. In addition, the electronics are not designed to withstand the outdoor elements.

    No. It was designed for inteerior use only at an ambient temp from 60* F to 105* F. The electronic components will fail prematurely in an outside environment. You also increase the risk of an electrical shock.

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.

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

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!

TroJo, Try PartSelect.com for Skybox parts. I ordered a part on Monday night and installed it on Wednesday night. The parts are not that hard to find. Appliance repair services can replace your compressor or add freon. Be sure you have plenty of ventilation behind your machine. Jonmon
