Question about Maytag Refrigerators

1 Answer

We've got a Maytag SkyBox that no longer cools. I think it needs a new compressor, but of course, none exists. Is there a different compressor that we can rig up to work?

Make a note of the gas type used and all the numbers and codes on the compressor. a good refrigeration spares supplier will be able to give an alternative. replacing a compressor is not a diy job

Just stopped cooling refrigerator and freezer model number 79571092111


Impossible for all fans to be working, compressor ok, freon levels fine, and no cooling. Of course, if your compressor is no longer compressing, then that would account for your problem - you could also confirm this by checking current draw. With the compressor doing nothing but spinning current draw should be next to nothing.

If ice in back of freezer self defrost mechanism is not working.

I have a SkyBox vending machine. It has stopped completely cooling the drinks. The get a bit cool, but don't get cold. I suspect that it is out of freon. Is this somehting I can fix myself or is there...


You will definitely need a professionals help here because if the freon/refrigerant has leaked out then there is a leak that needs to be found and repaired. Then the system must be dried completely before being recharged and this takes special tools and knowledge. Definitely a techs job. good luck!

Thant must be checked out soon as that buzzing sound is the start relay struggling to start the compressor. The longer it goes on without repair to either the sart/run capacitor, start relay and overload the higher the chance there is for complete compressor failure. The condenser and evaporator areas should be cleaned and inspect both internal freezer fan and lower condenser fan that both run without stopping. Let me look for a service manual for your model and return soon, Thanks, Sea breeze

Maytag Skybox Beverage Dispenser Not Cooling


Sears.com is selling skybox parts. Go to appliance and parts and put in the model number of the skybox it is either mbv1976aab or mbv1976aap -- you can find this on the back of the skybox. It might have the part you need.

Skybox


I have a Sky box Model mbv1976aap series 10. It is complete but not working. I think it is the overload switch on the compressor as it arcs every time I plug it in. I don't want to fix it but I will sell parts for half price of parts direct website. I can be reached at scrapjunky@cox.net. I have dispensers, cooling fan, circuit boards, what do you need?

Both compartments not cooling


It sounds like the control board may be gone. If there are no fans running or the compressor running then it will never cool of course. I don't think it's stuck in defrost mode since you say the display shows dashes vice numbers. Go to this site for diagrams, etc. Item 11 is the controls section. http://tinyurl.com/3533ao
