    I have the same problem that my Skybox MBV1976AAB is not cooling. I took the "relay" of the compressor and it did make a rattling sound.The part number on it says 307015. When I call Maytag they say this part number is for a vent panel now and did not have any part named relay switch? Tried partselect.com and they sent me a transformer could not find the part I needed. Does any one know Where I can find this part? Thanks

Is it cooling at all? Do you hear the compressor start or just a buzz for a few seconds? This sounds like a compressor or compressor start relay failure. Unplug the machine. Access the compressor and remove the relay that is plugged to the side of it. Shake it and see if it sounds like there are a lot of loose pieces in it. Inspect it for burned spots. If you find either one of these, it is bad. If it doesn't rattle or appear burned then the compressor is probably bad. Even if it seems ok, I would try a new one on it anyway. They aren't usually very expensive. If the relay is not the problem, check your owners manual for the warranty info. The compressor may still be covered by warranty even if the rest of the unit is out of warranty.

The relay on your box is damaged.. You have to get it replaced.. Not to be tried by a novice but if you have some experience in electronics it can be fixed by you. The relay costs around 75$. Good luck!

My refrigerator is a Kitchenaid KSRG25FKSS05 and still runs but not cooling. I hear some kind of relay click and then click again after about 10 seconds. Then I don't hear it click again for a few minutes....


refergerant is not causing this problem. when the comp starts up and the bottom fan also starts up and the fan in the freezer comes on / this alll happens whe the cold control said we need more cold . so it sounds like the one that won't come on is the comp . and the clicking noise is the thermal control shutting down. then when cooling tryes to restart. . the kit you need is 8201786 this is called a start device and comes with instructions .. cost about $70.00 . easy to install . mm hope this helped and thanks for the model # .. and for ysing fix ya ..mm feed back pls

Check the compressor to see if it is running. Is it too hot to touch. If so make sure the condensor has proper air circulation to cool it. If the compressor is cool to touch and running. There is a leak in the refrigerant sealed system.The compressor isn`t doing any work because there isn`t any refrigerant in it, therefore will not creat much heat. A humming and clicking sound is typical of an overheated or damaged compressor. If the compressor isn`t running and connot start. It could be a bad start relay on the side of the compressor or a bad compressor. If you can remove the start relay, shake it and listen for a rattle sound. If it rattles, it is bad.If not. then it is time consider the cost of a repairman verses the value of the appliance. Check the cost of repair to the sealed system or maybe even replacing the compressor.I hope I have been of some help to you.
