Good product. Needs brakes maybe?
4 Star Review   By SueinDora on Home Depot - Jun 11, 2013   

Maytag makes a beautiful frig - practical and this one was on sale and had a rebate. Only downside is the frig rolls when you pull to open the frig door. Too lightweight maybe or I don't have enough groceries in it?

Superb
5 Star Review   By QPS1991 on Home Depot - May 14, 2013   

This replaced a previous model that was virtually identical. However, this one is much more energy efficient!

This refrigerator is superb!
5 Star Review   By GodBlessings on Home Depot - May 7, 2013   

I've had this refrigerator for about a month now and man do I tell you how smoothe it runs, sometimes I forgot its even running and I have to go and check to see if its on. It's very spacious and I love the fact that its at eye level and I can see what's in my frigde! The freezer also works well, everything stays nice and frozen even at level 5. My ice maker is not installed so I can't comment on that. Overall I'm pleased with this refrigerator! Great buy! :)

high pitched noise overwhelms all the good
2 Star Review   By annoyed on Home Depot - May 4, 2013   

I should have listened to prior customers who complained about the noise with this fridge. I just thought they meant it had a loud hum. But the problem I have is a very high-pitched EEEE sound. Not sure if this is the fan, the compressor or what, but it is very, VERY annoying. This is really too bad, because everything else with this is fridge is good: a very good value, good storage space in the door for gallon milk jugs and other bottles, moveable shelves. Right after our weekly grocery shopping it feels a little bit tight for our family of four in the main fridge, but it works. The freezer would be too small if we didn't have a chest freezer in the garage. The ice maker works very well. And HomeDepot's delivery service was excellent. But the noise really does drive me nuts - I wish I could figure out how to end or deaden it.

Could be better designed
4 Star Review   By SulaBlue on Home Depot - May 4, 2013   

Pros: It'll fit in the very tight space of our apartment kitchen. We were pretty much limited to three freezer-on-bottom models and this was the most affordable. Humidity controls on the produce bins. Separate drawer for lunch meat and cheeses. A HUGE amount of space on the door. CONS: The tray on the ice bin catches on the freezer shelf. A small thing, but annoying. The freezer basket doesn't pull out but about 1/3rd of the way. The supports for the shelves are HUGE at the back end, and make for some unusable space beneath shelves. It may be a matter of re-arranging the shelves, but between the thermostat being dead center of the top and the meat bin to one side, there's really only so much you can do. Expect to employ some trial and error to find what works for you. Produce drawers are too small to fit larger leafy produce such as kale, chard, etc.. without causing damage - especially if you have ANY other produce in there.

Fit my space needs perfectly.
5 Star Review   By Louie on Home Depot - Apr 30, 2013   

This product has performed as advertised. Not large but fits my space. The ice maker is a bonus.

Good so far
4 Star Review   By Chongo on Home Depot - Apr 23, 2013   

We've had it about a month, and I'm pleased, and I'd recommend it. The important thing is that it works, and the price was reasonable. As far as features go... ---The door holds a lot of stuff, even the gallon of milk, and that is nice. ---The freezer on the bottom is good. (At first, my wife wanted it, but I thought it was dumb, so she was right). The fridge ends up being "higher," so more of the important items are at eye level. You see what is in the fruit & veggie trays better. ---You can still get to everything in the freezer easily enough. ---It is quiet enough. But it is a "medium sized" fridge, and gigantic fridges seem to be trendy right now. This fridge size is perfect for us, and it fits the cutout in our kitchen better, leaving us storage room for brooms, the trash can etc. It also does not roll as well as our other fridge, so it is harder to pull out if you want to move it.

great buy
5 Star Review   By tooth4201 on Home Depot - Mar 12, 2013   

Had this fridge about a month, and couldn't be happier. It was the cheapest one that I found, but the features are everything I could ask for. Runs extremely quiet, and there's plenty of room for everything.

I ordered this fridge on line. It is smaller than my prior fridge. I noticed I don't need the extra space anyway. Very cute. Love it.

Well-designed
5 Star Review   By zbird on Home Depot - Dec 11, 2012   

We replaced an early model (not Maytag) 20 year old bottom freezer with this unit. The interior is far more efficiently designed though the fridge is 3 cu. ft. smaller. A key feature we were looking for was quiet. We are very pleased - never expected to get so much pleasure from an appliance!

A very nice fridge for the money.
5 Star Review   By MountainMan on Home Depot - Dec 11, 2012   

We purchased this fridge because it was the only one in our price range with a bottom freezer, but have come to really like it. I like the room in the doors for food and beverages, and the ability to move those shelves is great. Moving them is very easy, and we do it very often as we change what items we are storing. The drawers and shelves in the main part of the fridge are also easy to move, and the bottom storage drawers with humidity controls work very well to keep fresh fruits and vegetables looking good and tasting great. We haven't hooked the ice maker up, so I cannot comment on that feature. The unit is very quiet, though we have only had it for about 1.5 months, so that may change as the unit ages.

So far so good
4 Star Review   By DJA1968 on Home Depot - Oct 23, 2012   

Our GE split-door fridge died and it wasn't that old; it just stopped cooling/freezing so we chose this Maytag which was actually smaller in cubic feet, but seems like there is more space in the fridge and freezer, maybe because the space inside the unit is organized and utilized better. So far we are very happy with our purchase.

Saves your back!
5 Star Review   By chuck0one on Home Depot - Aug 28, 2012   

We have used this refrigerator now for over a month and it sure saves a lot of bending over to get things out. It is suprizing how little you use the freezer compared to the fresh food door. I like the in the door storage for milk containers.

works great and looks better. love the glass shelves.
1 Star Review   By 2dogsRus on Home Depot - Jul 20, 2012   

we bought a house with an existing top freezer - I like a bottom freezer and started looking on line and found this Maytag for a great price. But it's noisy!! compressor is louder than my previous one but its the popcorn like sound it makes for about 10sec after the compressor comes on that's annoying. Once in a while it sounds even louder like a marble running down a washboard.

Good fridge for price
4 Star Review   By njFridgeGuy on Home Depot - Jun 19, 2012   

Had the older version of this model, new features include extra tray, brighter light and digital controls. Offers lots of space, quiet and overall a good fridge for the price. Delivery guys were professional and quick with the removal/delivery of the old and new fridge.

Great buy
4 Star Review   By trekker on Home Depot - Jun 19, 2012   

This was the only bottom freezer fridge that could fit in the space I had. I was able to squeeze it through the kitchen door by removing the front wheels and doors and the hinges. It works great. Only thing is that getting something from very back of freezer is a little difficult. But we dont do that often. The similar maytag with a bottom drawer freezer was way more expensive. So I do not have any regrets.

I like the bottom freezer
3 Star Review   By mqmabs on Home Depot - Jun 12, 2012   

It is a nice looking refrigerator but is not a really usefull design. My old refrigerator was an 18 CF model and held more. I do like the freezer on the bottom.

Excellent product.
5 Star Review   By Jay123 on Home Depot - Jun 5, 2012   

The delivery people were on time and very professional. They reversed the doors for me and were very careful. I noticed later that night that the front grill had a broken clip, so I called Home depot and they called Maytag for me. Maytag offered to send a replacement grill or a whole new refrigerator right away. It arrived within a couple days. A++ for service and product.

Great Fridge
5 Star Review   Home Depot   

Ive never had a bottom freezer refridgerator but I really like it. We use the refrigerator much more than the freezer and having the stuff we always go for at arm level is nice. But actually we we replacing an old leaky fridge and had a tight space to put a new one in. This refridgerator is modern and up to date and has lots of room. There is not a lot of frills and could be better on energy use but I figure the less moving parts the less likely to break. Also as far as energy consumption it is lower than my 20 year old fridge and keeps up with todays standards. It is quiet not peep out this fridge. It is also solid and feels like it well built. We have a family of three and it could probably handle a family of four. If we get bigger than that then we will not only need a new fridge but a new house. I have had this refrigerator about a months and it is exactly as advertised and keeps everything nice and cold. Basically we dont even think about it which is exactly what I was going for, I would recommend it.

Best purchase I ever made
5 Star Review   By didodad on Home Depot - Feb 5, 2012   

I am very pleased with this refrigerator ! I love the bottom freezer. You can tell the good quality of this product when you open the fridge door, it is heavy. Love the light also in the freezer comp. This refrigerator is quiet as well as my old refrigerator. I would definately recommend this to someone else as it was recommended to me by a friend. I almost bought one at sears for hundred dollars more which in reality is the same refrigerator, made by Whirlpool as this one is. Drivers were very helpful , courteous and very careful when delivering !

Super refrigerator for the price!
5 Star Review   By KCVT on Home Depot - Jan 17, 2012   

Super refrigerator for the price. Always wanted a bottom freezer and how I am enjoying this one. Very quiet when running...and looks great in the white. The bottom freezer door swings open but it is not a problem...I like how my food stays fresh and is at eye level.

nice fridge
4 Star Review   By fridgemasterG on Home Depot - Jan 10, 2012   

Happy so far but I've only had it for about 2 weeks. Smaller than my old fridge. Unfortunately had no way of figuring out how large my old fridge was so in hindsight would have purchased a larger model. Oh well. Freezer is kinda small too. We're a family of 3 so if your family is bigger I'd look for a larger model.

4 Star Review   By JOCO on Home Depot - Jan 3, 2012   

For a small unit it holds a lot of food.Ice is a bit hard to get to, feel like I have to get down on the floor to grab it but all in all a quiet and nice unit.

4 Star Review   By lvmyappliance on Home Depot - Dec 8, 2011   

I am a short person so this fridge is great for me...the only and I mean only drawback I could see would be for a tall person to bend over and see/get into the freezer. Looks great in my kitchen too!!
