Question about Maytag SkyBox MBV1976A Beverage Dispenser

Skybox smoking, then will not dispense, keeps cool only on highest setting

A few months ago, my 2 year old Skybox started smoking from where the cans are usually dropped. I unplugged it and couldn't detect where the smoke came from. From then on, the machine won't dispense (no blinking lights or anything), and it only barely cools the soda when the setting is at the highest. BTW, the flourescent light still lights up when I turn it on.

Would you please send the service manual? redskinsfan424@gmail.com

Thanks

    I used the manual to disassemble my skybox, including the front panel, but I cannot find the cause of my problem.



    The flourescent lights work, when the plug between the unit and the door is connected. However, none of the dispensing buttons will work (no lights, no sounds, etc.). The plugs do not smell burnt or anything.



    The ONLY thing I found problematic was that there was blocks of ice on the back dispensers (between the back of the dispensing panel and the back panel of the machine). I took the ice off and checked all the connections, but still no dice on the buttons doing anything.



    Anyway, if anyone knows how to fix this or what else to look for, please let me know.



    Thanks

SkyBox not cooling. I replaced the start capacitor and the relay switches. (It worked a couple years ago but not this time.) Condenser is almost too hot to touch. Is condenser out of coolant? (R134a).


It could either be very low on freon or it could mean that the compressor is out. You should check the compressor out before you put a lot of money into the freon.

Hi my skybox stop cooling


The SkyBox operates with two individual systems. The dispenser assembly, the LED indicators and the circulating fan operate on a low voltage circuit. The circulating fan runs anytime the SkyBox is plugged in.

The cooling system operates on 120vac. The cold control inside the beverage compartment is an on demand switch that sends 120vac to the compressor when cooling is needed. There are no parts available for the compressor, so if it determined that power is reaching the compressor, the windings are ok, a 3 in1 hard start kit (Supco URCO210) can 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.

Skybox will nat cool below 40 degrees


The likely cause is a heavy frost and ice buildup on the internal evaporator plate behind the dispensing unit. Unplug the unit and open the door for 24 hours. Plug the unit back in, reset the thermostat to the 11:00 position.

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
