Good capacity, but breaking
on December 5, 2013
I've had this fridge for 7 years now. Over time the milk bin lift up lid has cracked in half, The deli drawer lid has cracked, the handle fell off the freezer (it has internal screws, so difficult to put back on, so I haven't), the doors won't close now without pushing on them both at same time, and now the ice machine makes ice, but won't dispense (maybe the motor to push it out has broke?) The deli drawer will freeze things in the back of drawer. Sometimes my condiments that I keep on the little shelf next to ice maker will be frozen as well. Ice machine capacity is so so.
Other than all this, I've liked the fridge. I guess you just learn to deal with what you have. I don't think it's too loud like some have said. Ice dropping into bucket will always be a little loud. Stainless steel washes off nicely to keep it looking new. There will always be some maintenance with SS. Just wipe it down each time you do the dishes and it stays nice. I do use a SS cleaner/polish on it once a week. The drawers slide smoothly and bottom freezer doesn't seem to wobble when opening like I noticed on some fridges I looked at. The shelves are glass and wash up nicely.
This fridge was recommended by a local appliance repair/ sales store. I asked which company made the best fridges with least amount of repair problems. This Maytag was it. It does seem now days all refrigerators are made of plastic, so things will break.
