Nice! May I also suggest the next time you are faced with the  ribbon/board issue that you send both over to for repair. Bruce has done some excellent work for me in this regard, particularly oven clock/touchpad and Neptune T/L consoles. Never had a callback either, which speaks volumes for his work.

none of these links work any longer.  Do you have a wiring diagram as I need to replace the overload and relay but none of them show where the blue wire goes or brown etc... Thanks

Couple of questions folksif you can help:

1. The schematic does not show the purpose of connection points for the blue and brown wires connecting to the OEM compressor relay - or coming from the control board. Any clue what those are/were for? IT does show the gray trigger from the thermostat, neutral, load and ground.

2. The compressor runs this normal for this unit?

3. The service matters links in the earlier posts are dead. Can we get those re-posted please. Specifially this one:
Maytag Skybox MBV1976 Service Bulletin: No cool or higher than normal temperatures in cabinet

Thank all.
Skybox - an example of a great idea poorly executed.
