I have had this refrigerator for 2 months. It works well has lots of storage and is energy efficient. The extra heavy door shelves are nice. There are 2 things that I just hate. It does not have a freezer light. When I bought it I assumed all refrigerators these days would have a freezer iight. Second the flip down shelf. The bottom shelf is not tall enough to put a gallon of milk, it is about 1/4 inch to short. Milk will fit on the top shelf but when you buy 4 gallons at a time that is a lot of weight for a shelf. The other option is to put it on the door, once again that is a lot of weight. When you try to lift the next shelf to put the milk on the bottom shelf the flip down shelf comes apart and does not want to go back in place. If you use the flip down shelf feature you loose the use of the entire front half of the shelf . You cannot raise the entire shelf because it is right under the deli drawer and once again you loose one whole side of the shelf because it is against the deli drawer. If they would have raised the shelf so that gallons of milk would fit it would be much better. I would like to get rid of the flip down shelf and have a regular shelf.

I purchased this unit for the large capacity. What I received was a large NOISY unit.This model makes more noise that the 15 year old Whirlpool it replaced.It makes gurgling and whirling noises when operating.Had a tech from the place of purchase check out the noises and he said it was normal.It is not normal to hear a refrigerator operating so loudly.To early to comment on overall performance.

Would not recommend

Comments about Maytag Black Top-Freezer Refrigerator:
We remodeled our kitchen less than 3 years ago and bought all Maytag appliances and we are not happy with any of them. The fridge is the worst. We called to have it serviced within the first year. They really didn't want to come and then did not do much to fix it. We can not put food in the back it freezes it, we have to babysit it constantly and have a thermometer in it to make sure it is working right. Last week it quit completely. Thankful so far we can keep resetting it & it continues to work.
Bottom Line No, I would not recommend this to a friend

We remodeled our kitchen & bought all Maytag appliances, I wouldn't recommend any of them. It has been less than 3 years. We called for service on this fridge within the first year they didn't really want to service it & when they came out they didn't do much. It freezes the food in the back and then 2 wks ago it just shut off. We have to reset it a lot & keep a thermometer in it to make sure it is working correctly. We constantly have to monitor it. Will not be buying any more Maytags. We like to buy US made products so this really stinks.
great features, sliding shelf and ice tray.

I like the freezer
By Roller skating grandma
from Sandusky, Ohio
I like the freezer accessibility. However, it is very difficult to see anything in the inside of the refrigerator. The bottom of the freezer door blocks the view of the top shelf. I feel like I have to almost kneel on the floor to see what is on the shelves.
Overall Good Product
from Elkhart, IN
We bought this 2 months ago. So far so good. Not good for storing taller items like milk or 2 liters. Makes a high-pitched whine for a few seconds after closing the doors. Looks nice and overall good product.
Maytag is Bad News
This lasted two and one-half years, about half as long as my Maytag dishwasher which made it to five years. Now out of warranty and facing a $400 to $700 repair bill. What to do? The answer is easy - buy a non-Whirlpool refrigerator and swear off Maytag and Whirlpool forever!
Replaced 2003 version
from Levittown, PA
Our appliance dealer described this Maytag as the 2015 version of our failing 2003 Maytag. For the most part, all is good. There are, however, three features that this version lacks compared to our old one, and, these features are missed by us... no light in the freezer compartment, no attachment on the ice maker bar that allows you to control ice bin quantity, and the 'half-width' shelves in the refrigerator compartment. Also, it is unnerving to see that in the most recent issue of Consumer Reports (received 7/7/15), the Maytag is the absolute lowest rated Top Freezer model... in 2003, it was rated #2. Hope it's not a bad omen!
from Pekin, IL
I like the product. The trouble we had was with installation. They didn't hook up the ice maker properly and there was a leak into the ice bin...big mess. They also cracked part of the side piece where the moving shelf fits, trying to put it in...and scratched the front of the fridge trying to get it in the door.

I like the roominess and simplicity of it and yet stylish.
from Manteno, IL, United States
I am enjoying my new refrigerator. I like the strong-box door bins and the fact that they are adjustable. I especially like the fold-away shelf for storing extra tall items!
