Frustrating!
2 Star Review   By member silverlan - Jul 16, 2008   

Strengths: Lots of space, flexible shelving, the design of the bottom-mount freezer is really great (not just a bin, but also has a pull-out drawer so your frozen goods can be a touch organized.)

Weakness: Repairs! The French Doors seemed like a good idea at the time, but have turned out to be a pain in the tuchas.

In the three years we've owned this fridge, we've had to replace the overload relay, the compressor, and the control board--and only the compressor has been covered by the warranty. In addition to the extra $500 in repair bills, we've also had to absorb the cost of lost groceries and copious quantities of ice/dry ice (because your fridge never dies on a day when the repair people can just come out...) The design of this particular fridge includes a wide bottom drawer for storing meats, breads, what have you--but unfortunately, you have to open BOTH french doors to get anything in/out of it. Plus because one side of the fridge is against the wall, we can't open the door on that side wide enough to get things out easily--so we're always balancing the opening of TWO doors plus whatever needs to go in/out. If I knew then what I know now... I wouldn't have spent so much money on this behemoth, and I would've just gotten a simple bottom-freezer fridge!

Maytag White French Door Refrigerator with Bottom Freezer
4 Star Review   By member esarau - Jul 13, 2006   

Strengths: Aesthetically pleasing. Easy to use (ie.adjust shelves, organize, fill) Temp.Adj.features are nice.

Weakness: A little noisy for the kitchen, however, this is my secondary fridge for the basement, so not a problem for me.

I would reccommend this product to anyone who is interested in a french door style refrigerator. Also, if you are debating styles, I highly reccommend the french doors, and a bottom freezer will always be a must for me!
