About - Maytag MFI2670XE[M]

The Maytag MFI2670XE[M] is part of the refrigerator test program at Consumer Reports. In our lab tests, bottom freezer refrigerator models like the MFI2670XE[M] 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.

Comment:
This is our family refrigerator. The biggest complaint is that the icemaker is bad. We can't depend on it to make ice. Also the icemaker leaks. It ruined our wood floors with a slow leak.
How long have you owned it:
More than six months
Bottom Line
No, I would not recommend this to a friend.

Comment:
Most door ice makers take up too much space. The temperature control is great. There isn't much door storage on the left. I've had mine for about 6 months without any problems. Despite the mediocre rating, I took a chance since it was new from a retail outlet.

Comment:
We bought this refrigerator because the price was right for a French door model. What a mistake. After <5 months of ownership, the (cheap?) plastic support for the vegetable & fruit drawers broke. Fine that it was under warranty, but I do not think it was built to last. The water dispenser leaks constantly. Also, the icemaker is in an awkward spot that takes up a lot of interior space. Look for a different 'fridge.
