We bought this fridge because our doors were narrow. It is a nice looking fridge and we are mostly happy with it, but something clicks on/off and makes a humming noise. It scares the dogs at times! We also didn't expect the drawers to be such a flimsy plastic. It is not a popular model, so it wasn't on the floor. My recommendation is to ALWAYS see the product before you purchase it.

We had to buy a smaller refrigerator to fit in a specific spot in our kitchen. We decided on Maytag for quality and reputation, and fit. We even opted for the more expensive Eco-Conserve more-energy efficient model. While it serves the bbasic functions of a fridge (chills and freezes), we have had issues.(1) Storage: Maybe it's the function of the new bottom-freezer models, but we hate storing our frozen goods in a literal PILE in the freezer compartment. In addition, the fridge shelves are difficult to configure for tall and or very wide items. For instance, you cannot put two shelves side by side to make one wide/across shelf, as they don't fit! Silly!(2) Performance: We discovered water leaking at the same time for 3 days running around the front feet. Turns out there is a build up of ice as a frozen pond in the bottom of the freezer that oozes out as water upon the defrost cycle of the fridge engaging. Investigating this on the internet, I understand that my "drain" might be frozen. Who has ever heard of this?? Fridges are supposed to be plug-and-play and wait 25 years until your next appliance. And why so hard to get to the drain, even?We are still in warranty mode. I'll phone for info about the drain issue, but this bums us out.

Lots of pros and some cons
Comments about Maytag MBF1958WES Stainless Steel Bottom Freezer Refrigerator:
Overall, this fridge has worked well. I especially like that it does not freeze the fruit and veges in the back as my last fridge did.It is smaller inside, at least the shelving does not allow as much storage than our freezer on top model, which takes getting used to. Also, we notice that when the door hasn't been opened, like first thing in the morning, we can smell the food a bit. It does not circulate the air out, it seems. Repairman says nothing is wrong with it.
Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

Love this refrigerator. It has the perfect amount of space. Love the clear bins and drawers and love the large bottom drawer. The only thing I am not fond of is that the compressor for the ice machine is loud and catches you off guard.

Good modern fridge for a small space.

Replaced 20-year-old refrigerator with this one. Love the bottom freezer and full-width deli drawer. Sturdy handles are a great feature.

I love it! With glass shelves and see-through drawers and bins, I can see everything at a glance. Nothing is hidden! I am very happy I bought this one!

I am very happy with this refrigerator! It fits in the small space I had to work with, its a bottom freezer (which is hard to find in this size) and I love the commercial feel of the handles. I also greatly appreciate the 10 year warranty on the compressor.
from Liberty NY
He size was perfect for my space(built in).
I've had this refridgerator for a month or so and am pleased with it thus far. I like the flexible shelf locations and the drawer configurations. I don't care for the ice drawer location in the back of the freezer. Ice often spills from the container when you pull the freezer out to access the ice. It certainly is an upgrade from my old unit and I look forward to the energy savings.
