    Rated a Very Helpful Review
    Pros: Very efficient. Bottom freezer is nice. Excellent tasting water.
    Cons: Not so quiet running. Fruit and vegetable drawers are too small.

    Summary: I bought this refrigerator in October 2006 so I have been using it for almost two years. All-in-all it is not a bad refrigerator but I did not have to deal with Maytag's customer service which seems to be one of the major complaints of the other ... read more

    Pros: It looks good & is easy to clean, since everything is removeable.
    Cons: EVERYTHING!!!!!!!!!!!!  IT IS A PIECE OF EXPENSIVE JUNK!!!!

    Summary: I know you're going to think I am exaggerating, but truly, I am not!  We purchased our fridge in July 2004, in 3 months the fan stopped and the fridge stopped cooling.  Had it fixed, since it was still under warranty.  Another 5 months ... read more

    Pros: I will never buy another appliance from them again.

    Pros: The fridge looks great-sort of retro/professional
    Cons: One thing after another breaks.

    Summary: The fan stopped working in 6 months. It was covered by warranty, but my food wasn't. The water dispenser doesn't dispense 95 percent of the time because it's frozen. The ice maker doesn't make ice 50 percent of the time because it's "froze up". You ... read more
