About - Maytag MFI2269VE[W]

The Maytag MFI2269VE[W] is part of the refrigerator test program at Consumer Reports. In our lab tests, bottom freezer refrigerator models like the MFI2269VE[W] are rated on multiple criteria, such as those listed below.


Temperature performance:
This combines results of tests measuring the accuracy of initial temperature settings along with how well a model 1) kept optimum temperatures in the refrigerator and freezer at the same time; 2) kept temperatures even throughout each compartment; 3) kept temperatures constant despite changes in room temperatures; and 4) maintained set temperatures even with very high room temperatures.

Energy efficiency:
This reflects electricity consumption (based on our tests) per cubic foot of measured usable storage space. For example, two models with the same energy cost per year may have different energy efficiencies -- the unit with more storage space being more efficient.

Noise:
Noise level was measured when the compressor started up and during steady running. Subjective judgments by a panel of listeners supplemented our noise-meter readings.
About This Brand

One of the Whirlpool brands, Maytag is a major player in the bottom-freezer section of the market. The company was one of the first to introduce a French-door model with an external ice-and-water dispenser and a cabinet-depth model with an external dispenser.

I'll never buy this brand

Comment:
Only used 4 months, the control panel dead! 2 technicians came to my home and tried to fix it for 5 times, but the control panel still didn't be fixed. This took around one and half month. After all thest, Whirlpool insists to fix it and keeps refusing to give me a replacement. Till now, I still don't have water, ice and I can't use all the functions that I had paid for more than CAD 1500. After 2 technicians' 5 visit, it starts dripping water from the ice maker and sometimes it makes huge noise. I still HAVE TO keep it in my kitchen.

Comment:
While the unit was wonderful for the 2 years I had it, the compressor blew. It's a $700 compressor reinstall.<br />This is an unreliable fridge as it died.<br />I called MayTag Canada, they could not offer support as the warranty ran out in January. Case number 7711295151 if anyone wants to reference it, by all means.
How long have you owned it:
More than six months
Bottom Line
No, I would not recommend this to a friend.
