One of my Maytag Skybox buttons will not dispense (The other three are working fine). I push it and it blinks but nothing happens with the dispensing bail inside the unit. I hear a faint click in the back of the machine, but na-da. I have checked that the "Child Lock" button is in the right position. I'm stumped! Help, as you may know Maytag is no longer and I am at a loss as to what to do. Thank you for any help or direction you can provide.
I had the same problem with my SkyBox, I took the unit apart, and when I removed the dispensing unit, there was a four inch block of ice on the back of it, and apparently the weight of the ice pulled some plugs loose on the circuit board on the back of the dispensing unit. I let the unit thaw out overnight, and plugged the remaining plugs back in and it works good as new now. On a side note, when I moved, I noticed that after the machine was unplugged for a day or so, it was leaking water on the floor, so the ice block had been forming for some time.

Re: Maytag Sky Box Won't dispence
Since it's only one dispensor unit you should be able to eliminate "common" items and find out what controls just that one dispensor. The faint click may be from a bad relay (relay coil works but doesn't pass voltage on contacts). You will likely have to take the thing apart to check the control board. Here's a diagram of the unit so you can see where everything is at. I'd suspect the control board relay that controls that particular dispensor is bad or a loose wire, etc.

There is a little sensor board in the door where the flapper door is,you can access it when the door is open.That is what tells the main control that the can has fallen down through the door and the door has closed.
I had the same problem. The hinge pin on the dispensing door was rusted and this kept the door from closing completly. The door sensor magnet was not making contact with the door sensor and this caused the error. I removed the pin, sanded it down and it before reinstalling. It works fine now.
If nothing happens, the switch behind the button must be broken, or something on the PCB that the button is mounted to is broken. But if lights blink, then the button is ok and the problem is with the motor or some sensor. I have a troubleshooting guide for the dispensing system (better than Maytag ever published), as I was directly involved in the design of this product. This does not cover the refridgeration system, as that was provided by our Chinese manufacturer. Please email me at: [email protected] if anyone wants this guide.
