Excerpt: This is my first 3 door refrigerator with the bottom freezer and I really like the bottom freezer feature. It makes it so easy to load and unload the items in the freezer. It is easier for me to see what I have in the freezer, too.
Excerpt: Love the bottom freezer, and the French doors. The added space of double doors makes the fridge very roomy and allows to store much more than regular 2 door fridge and freezer combo. There are some draw back, if freezer if filled to max capacity, stacking items makes it hard to take them back out.
Summary: Had the unit for 5 months. Came home after a week away only to find the compressor was shot and everything in the unit was toast. I was told 17 days to get service here to look at it. I was also told (by a service company)that Whirlpool cheapened the compressor when they purchased Maytag. Guess what? The replacement compressor is the exact same model as Maytag used when the unit was truly a Maytag. What else was cheapened?
Excerpt: This Maytag unit is a beautiful refrigerator with a functional French-door design. It has a comfortable 26 cubic feet of storage and I love the wide shelves for long platters. Freezer is quite spacious, surprisingly more so than my old side-by-side refrigerator with identical cubic footage. Only minor drawback is that, in order to access the lower deli drawer of the fridge, both upper doors need to be opened.
Pros: Attractive Design, Customizable Shelving, Easy Access, Energy Efficient, Quiet
Summary: I plan on writing another review after I own this product for a period of time. But, for now I am very pleased. It is very attractive. Temperature controls seem very precise, and the unit is quiet. It makes noise when dumping ice cubes, but what unit doesn't. When using the ice cube dispenser it is necessary to hold a wide mouth glass close to the dispenser outlet otherwise the cubes bounce out of trajectory.
Summary: I have this model without the ice maker. This are absolute crap products. Maytag does not provide any customer support. Small parts fail before light bulbs. I just wanted a copy of a service manual for removing and testing the light switches--all three of which failed. Maytag would not provide any sort of support. The online users manual and parts list is it. No service information on how to remove a switch without damaging it is available.
Summary: Maytag products feature parts that fail faster than light bulbs. You won't have to change the light bulbs inside this fridge because the switches will fail first, or else the circuit boards. Expect to pay for this refrigerator a second time in repair bills. Maytag does not provide any service information so that you can swap out something simple like a door switch. Onsite repairs by service techs will cost you hundreds of dollars for $25 parts.
