Pros:Great Space, Alarm Indicators, Looks good

Cons:Freezes items that are placed next to ice maker. HVControl board failure.

The Bottom Line: Not sure if I would purchase another one... Too many electrical things could fail. Simple is better sometimes.


Purchased June 2008 - 13 months later... Woke up this morning to a popping noise coming from the kitchen. Went it to see the lights all flashing and the ice door opening and closing... Wierd. Researched it a little bit - the youtube video (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=RWfnW4o9Uk4) shows exactly what the problem is. I just called Maytag/Whirlpool (800-253-1301), provided them with the model # and serial # (which can be found on the inside panel of the fridge) and they are replacing the HV Control Board (Part# 12920710) for free with overnight shipping and free installation (eventhough it's 1 month out of warranty). When I purchased it, the appliance store did all the registration and warranty information for me, so when I called, they had all the information already, which helped alot.

When this was delivered the middle support bracket was broken (the screw looked like it was stripped when they tried to screw it in), so my shelves all sagged in the middle, especially the one near the ice compartment. I replaced it with standard sheetrock screws and all is well. The ice maker jams quite often, but I think that is due to underuse... We only get ice from it once in a while, so it tends to create ice blocks.

Other than that - it's worked out pretty well so far.
