Usually works beautifully. repeated part failures - doesn't work without electricity - shallow racks

Barry Belanger, Amazon
26 April 2014
  • Summary: I have had this stove for a couple of years now, and I have been plagued with problems and disappointments. Let me say that when the stove is working it is magnificent. My first disappointment was learning that the stove will NOT work unless there is electricity. I fully expected the clock, and timers and everything else not to work... but please, I firmly believed that gas stoves all could be lit manually when the power was out. Not so with this model.

Maytag does not stand by their product

Sharyn M Wolfe, Amazon
20 March 2014
  • Summary: Oven worked good for six weeks. The igniter broke in the bottom oven and when the third party non-Maytag repairman came out to fix it, he was unable to remove the bottom oven door. It is not flush and heat escapes when the bottom oven is on and it causes the top oven to get condensation. The repair man was directed from a technician from Whirlpool that he had to order a new seal and hinges. I don't want it fixed. I want a new one.

Maytag doesn't stand behind their products; they can't produce a repair part for my three-year old gas range

Barbara Ivanov, Amazon
30 December 2013
  • Summary: I cannot use my 3-year-old Maytag gas range and oven appliance until I can purchase part # W10213446, which the Maytag factory website shows as back-ordered until the year 2020. This means that I couldn't cook for my family and friends for Christmas, and I've been eating frozen soup for a month. The Maytag customer service call center has no answer, they just tell me that they don't and won't have the part. I've owned Whirlpool appliances since I built my home in 1989.

Electric Would Have Been Better

Wiliam L. Mcdowell "Doctor Bill", Amazon
29 November 2013
  • Summary: Several years ago, we purchased the electric version of this range. The double oven feature was a great bonus and the loss of the traditional storage drawer was a paltry sacrifice to gain the energy efficiency and convenience of the smaller, and much more used, second oven. In seven years there was not a single problem. After moving to a new state, and leaving our beloved range behind, we decided to upgrade to the gas version of the Maytag Gemini.

Door locks permanently during cleaning mode

Mulligan's Attic, Amazon
13 July 2013
  • Summary: Paid quite a bit of money for this Maytag Gemini. Had highhopes but alas, it was dashed when I tried the cleaning mode on the bottom oven. The door went through some crazy noises and locked, have not been able to open it again. I am an engineer and I must admit, it would probably be easier to get into Harvard. I called the help line for Maytag and they actually laughed when i told them I have owned the oven for 14 months and it was passed warranty.

Dont waste your money on Maytag!,,

Janice B, Amazon
3 June 2013
  • Summary: I purchased 3 yrs ago a maytag gemini. Two yrs to the day after purchase the starter on both ovens went After lack of customer service, i wrote to investor relations. Maytag picked up the cost of the part because by the time I finally spoke to someone I was irate. Well tonight less than a year after they fixed my oven starter went again! I will NEVER purchase a Maytag product again. I spent so much money for this range and hundreds to fix it.

Never Burn Anything Again

Amazon Customer, Amazon
12 February 2013
  • Summary: I bought a used one, and it works perfectly. I love the double ovens--the broiler on the top one is great, and the bottom oven is very large. You can get a very low simmer on the burners. For the money, it's worth it.

Good alternative to kitchen remodel, but check installation

HereKittyKitty, Amazon
29 November 2012
  • Summary: First, let me say I loved the idea of getting the functionality of a double oven without having to remodel my kitchen. It was offered in Stainless & the price was decent compared to similar models at the time. I had it for 18 months until it died last week & am now waiting for a repairman to get a quote. The clock & timer still work but the oven & stovetop do not.

Cosmetic Flaws Covered for Only 30 Days

David Stoddard, Amazon
12 April 2012
  • Summary: My home burned down on December 31, 2010. As part of the reconstruction process, we ordered new appliances for our home in September 2011. This range was one of the appliances we ordered. I purchased the white version of this appliance (MGT8885XW). Like many construction projects, there were a lot of delays and we did not get a chance to install the new appliances into our kitchen until April 11, 2012.
