Due to space limitations this was one of only a couple of fridges which fit the spot. I chose it because it was the most attractive and the sales assoc. at Sears recommended it over the others. I love the way it looks, it holds a lot of food for the space, however the ridge in the center top makes it difficult to store pitchers of ice tea or juice on the top shelf. Also it runs VERY COLD to the point of freezing some of my food! The installer told me not to fiddle with the temp controls because they were set at the factory. On the whole I really love it, it runs quietly and smoothly and the ice is terrific. But I don't like that ridge and that it runs SO cold.

I was not able to see this product in person before I purchased it and I was extremely disappointed by the quality of this refrigerator.The fridge looks nice on the outside, but the handle and the sides are plastic and not stainless. You can see the side of my fridge in the kitchen and I don't like this, because the sides are a different color from the front (relatively speaking). It would be nice fore the sides to be stainless as well.The main issue that I take is that the quality of the drawers and storage is poor. The drawers are very difficult to open and close and do not do so easily. They are quite light weight and not at all sturdy feeling. The crisper drawers do not close all the way (there is a gap between the drawer and the above shelf), which defeats the purpose of the humidity control feature.The storage on the freezer door is not adjustable and is very narrow. You can only fit a can or frozen condensed juice if you force it in there. Given the narrow capacity, few items fit here. The fridge is also quite light-weight and does not seem as sturdy as I would have liked. I feel as though I have to be careful with it to avoid denting it or breaking the drawers.In addition, my handle was chipped and the freezer door dented when I received the item, which was an added disappointment.The fridge does actually keep the food cold, which is an improvement compared to my last one, however I would liked to have made a better choice.In sum, I am disappointed and do not recommend this product.

Excellent Performance Refrigerator
By Mic Tod
from Oregon, United States
Comments about Maytag EcoConserve Monochromatic Stainless Top-Freezer Refrigerator:
We have now owned this model for 2.5 years and have had no issues what-so-ever with the unit. It is the quietest model we have ever owned, and seems to hardly ever need to run to keep things cold. What's more, we have noticed a definite decrease of electricity usage since purchasing it. We are completely satisfied with this fridge.
Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

Love the size and special features
By Italian mama
from Portage, IN, United States
It is a perfect fit in my kitchen. I love the deep added pockets on the door that will hold the extras. I love the brushed stainless on the front. Much easier to keep clean. It matches my microwave, so all I need is to get a matching stove and dishwasher then my kitchen will be complete!
like it but....
from Bellevue, OH, United States
We have been pleased overall with the refrigerator. However, the Maytag emblem on the front of the frig is crooked. One would thing quality control would not allow that to happen.
from Wyoming, MI, United States
We bought our refrigerator a few months ago and we love it! It's quiet and efficient. We love the shelves inside on the door, and the shelving inside the refrigerator is easy to clean if we spill something.
Good value for the money
from St. Louis, MO
I purchased this Maytag refrigerator (in black) in January 2014.Pros: Good price for the features, nice smooth finish, stylish handles, reversible door swing, ice maker factory installed, adjustable door shelves, easy to clean, ample freezer room, drawers are easy to open/close, tilt out shelf in the door is handy for things like juice boxes. The unit is fairly quiet, even when making ice. It is attractive and great for fitting into awkward sized spaces.Cons: ice maker hoses required some "rigging" to stay put - they kept disconnecting at the top/back of the fridge, causing water to spray everywhere each time the ice maker kicked on. After taping them securely all over the lines, they seem to work fine. The delivery person had a terrible time changing the swing of the door - this left several scratches on the unit, as Maytag didn't make this an easy process -having to glue on their logo, screw hiding "dots", and other items. Maytag also delivers the item with protective plastic film. However, it's tucked into metal seams on the fridge itself, making it impossible to pull out every tiny piece of plastic, which has left me with visible plastic pieces sticking out of the seams. Seems that a stick on film would have worked much better. There is a small shelf that is not adjustable located above the drawers. It creates a very awkward space - if you use it at all, you forget that you put anything on that shelf, as the items aren't visible when you place things in front of the shelf. If you don't use it, you have wasted space and can't put items on the main shelf pushed all the way to the back of the fridge. The door design isn't a breeze to ensure it's closed - so be diligent about making sure the door is pushed all the way shut and sealed! The kick plate on the front of the unit helps keep food/crumbs from getting under the fridge, but it falls off frequently.
Lots of room yet not an elephant in the room
from Florida, United States
Love this frig a lot. Great amount of space. Only con was when u switch handle to other side u get a silver sticky to put in on the hole. I was afraid my grandson would notice it and pull it off. Otherwise I love the compartments and how bright it is when u open it up! Nice frig with excellent quality. Ice maker too! We have excellent water so why pay out the nose for expensive filters when u have excellent water!
A nice replacement
We have had no major issues with our new fridge and we especially enjoy the ability to put larger pitchers on the top shelf without interference from the components mounted on the ceiling. We chose this model to fit a specific space in our small kitchen and wanted similar features to the fridge that required replacement. It was the best quality for the price at the showroom.

This refrigerator has worked out fine for us
from Southern Illinois
Didn't realize there was no light in the freezer section. Also the freezer space on door is not wide enough. We have limited space to put in a refrigerator. This one worked out just great for the space. There are just two of us in this household so this product works out fine for us.
Insufficient temperature contols/none for frezzer section/no
from Tinley Park, IL
There are only four setting levels for the refrigeration section and when set on the third level the refrigerator is definitely cool enough. There is no separate temperature control mechanism for the freezer section and ice cream is kept barely cold enough although ice stays sufficient frozen. The refrigerator does not run as quiet as I had hoped it would. The supplier where I purchased the unit did not have it in stock so I did not see it until it was delivered.
Bottom Line No, I would not recommend this to a friend
