Hello,

I recently have been having trouble with my Maytag Skybox Vendor Beverage Dispenser. The model number is MBV1976AAB. Recently, I noticed that the beverages were no longer getting cold. I decided to change all of the start components which include the start relay, the overload protector and the start capacitor.

The 'new' start relay part number is 61005504.
Here is a picture of it: http://www.************************....&PartID=894643


The overload protector part number is: 2162218
Here is the picture of it: http://www.************************....2162218-%3d%3d

The start capacitor part number is 8182473. No picture is available.

My Questions:

I am told that I was supposed to attach a wire directly from the start relay to the overload protector. Is that true?


If so, which terminals on the start relay and the overload protector does such a wire attach to precisely?  This is the part where I am stuck and the start components did NOT come with any instructions.

Please help! I would appreciate it. Thank you.

How many wires do we have to play with???? the common wire is direct to the thermal overload...the start cap is in series with the start winding....Did you make yourself a wire diagram before you disconnected the wires??? Does the compressor have the terminals at the locations ( as viewed on the clock face )  common terminal at 12:00.....  Run terminal at 4:00........start terminal at 8:00............   two (2) wire system  hot to common and neutral to the  run terminal........ how was the capacitor wired into the system, I.E. what wires went where ??
