Comment:
Pretty upset....I really did like the bottom freezer & roomy refrigerator section on top UNTIL it suddenly stopped working/cooling, just 3 yrs after purchase. We are a small family so it was not overused. No warning, no idea why it quit? Maytag repairman said it'd be about $600 to fix, so we were completely stuck @ that point with a dead fridge & wasted food! Sad, because it still looks like new, just won't work:(

Comment:
Mine was delivered 10/30/2014. The doors are extremely hard to open. The surface is impossible to clean. It appears to have oil like stains. <br />This is the frustrating part. I called customer repair. took almost two hours before I was able to get anyone. They asked for the model # and the serial number. I asked where it was located. They said on the door. I could not find it. The rude man kept insisting I couldn't see it. He told me to call back when I found it and hung up. I looked everywhere on that refrigerator for well over one half hour. Could not find it.<br />I called back held another long time. Finally I asked for a supervisor. He said he had absolutely no way to find my number. It was the responsibility of the seller. The seller said it was shipped direct from Maytag on their trucks. Think twice.
