We upgraded our older, smaller refrigerator and did tons of research and based on the reviews of this product and the dimensions fitting our kitchen decided on this refrigerator and I am glad we did. It does not have all the bells and whistles as other, more expensive ones do, but it has plenty of capacity and is quiet and looks great! It is great for smaller kitchens like we have but still has tons of interior space. It fit perfectly in our space and having the refrigerator at eye level is a huge back saver. If you want a very nice, quiet and adjustable refrigerator without all the unnecessary frills and have a smaller spot to put it, then this is most definitely the one for you! I highly recommend it!

I purchased this refrigerator 4/20/2015 and read reviews and even enlarged pictures to get a better view. However, when the frig arrived, there were two (2) unsightly screws on the front door opposite the handle. Because you can change the door handle, the screws are there but what an awful sight. Not sure if I'll be able to get used to it. Very unsightly for a stainless refrigerator. Also, freezer basket does not pull out that far.

Fan noise 95% of the time. but works
from Gravette, Arkansas
Comments about Maytag EcoConserve MBL2258XES Stainless Steel Bottom Mount Refrigerator:
couple year old refrigerator model mbf 2258xeb3 bottom freezer / refrigerator. Came with our new house. I noticed what sounds like the condenser fan running constantly, so I went online to investigate. apparently the condenser runs more often in these newer models but at lower power draw, essentially it does not turn on an off very often which it is the on and offs that draw most electricity. I guess, apparently, from what I read this makes the units fan nearly always run, meaning NO quiet time in the kitchen, mmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmm goes the fan all the time. its not unbearable but, its not quiet either. All to save electricity, but ironically you need to open the freezer every time you want ice in your glass. I wish I had a side by side with in door water and ice dispenser. one that could shut off sometimes because my large family is not constantly opening the freezer to get 4 ice cubes at a time. But thats not why the condenser fan runs constantly, even as i write this 4hrs after the family went to bed. it has not stopped for the last 2hrs I have been at my kitchen table on my laptop.The seal on the refrigerator is sometimes very difficult to open, like its suctioned then sometimes its normal, the handle on the freezer drawer is loose the bolt is working its way out, looks like i would need to remove the lining from the inner drawer to access, no easy way to tighten. The freezer drawer gets difficult to pull due to frost build up on the slides. Food placed at the top of the refrigerator (like eggs) will freeze when the unit is set to a 3. settings range from 1-7 with 7 the coldest. What I do like however is that so far its reliable to do its intended function, there is plenty of room. But, I miss my in door water and ice dispensers big time!

New Maytag Refrigerator to replace 23yr old model
from New Hampshire
Have only had this frig for about a month. So far am very happy with it.
from Everett, WA
We bought this refrigerator about a month ago and so far things are super. We really like the fact we can see everything through the clear crisper drawers-and no more bending down to find fresh produce! This has enough space for our family of four.Thank you Maytag for making an affordable and reliable bottom freezer refrigerator.
So quiet and roomy
By MT girl
from Bozeman, MT
We have only had this frig for 2 months, so can't speak for reliability, but love it so far. It is sooo quiet and the adjustable shelves make it so much easier to customize for added space. The only thing I don't like is the immovable dividers in the top freezer drawer. It has caused problems for me a couple of times. The pictures don't show the freezer well. I would've liked having solid drawers rather than the basket type, but not a deal breaker. I love the ease of having the freezer drawers on the bottom so I am not bending over searching for stuff in the back of the frig. We have not hooked up the water for the ice maker. The delivery guys won't connect the water if you have copper tubing connections. We don't use that much ice with only 2 of us so we haven't done it yet. I love the large covered butter shelf. Lights are bright, but items on the shelves can block it some. My husband likes the industrial looking handles. Great for "man" hands.

I've always wanted bottom freezer, so glad I bought a Maytag
My Maytag Refrigerator
from West Orange, New Jersey
This is the first freezer on the bottom I've ever had. It is taking time to get used to it. I find that the small baskets in the freezer are very difficult to organize. I don't feel I can utilize the space efficiently. It would be much better if there was just one large basket. The drawers of the refrigerator are very poorly made. Already the humidity control notch for the vegetable drawer broke off. It's not even worth fixing because, with its poor construction, it will surely happen again. I find that there are some places in the refrigerator that become too cold and end up freezing my food. I am also concerned about a lot of condensation in both the fridge and freezer. I am hoping that it is due to the very hot summer temperature and that in the fall this will not be an issue. I do like the way the refrigerator looks and so far my food is being kept cold, so that's a positive.
from Memphis, TN
This refrigerator has been nothing but problems, and a complete disappointment. Overall a very poorly made product with inferior components.
