Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Michelle Worst upright frost free freezer ever purchased and can understand why discontinued
We have had this freezer for 3 year and have had to manually defrost this 'frost free' freezer 3 times. This is my in-laws freezer and had I read the reviews then, this freezer would have stayed where it should be, in the Maytag warehouse. This freezer is such a pain in the butt to manually defrost and being a frost free freezer, when I help my mother in law defrost this I saw multiple bad words in my head. This freezer is such a pain due to the fact that when you put things in it, you have to pay attention to how you load it because the circulation design is horrible and you cant put food in the middle section of the whole freezer, on all 4 racks. The design of this freezer is horrible and defrosting this freezer ticks me off every time we do it. Highly disappointed with this freezer!!

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Joe Loud buzzing after 3 months! Warranty repair guy blew the job off. Stay away from Maytag!
I have spent hours googling "Maytag compressor makes buzzing noise, Maytag compressor diagrams, Maytag compressor repairs." Stay away from Maytag. It worked great for 3 months, then it began making a horrible buzzing noise. It still freezes but the noise is unnerving and loud. I purchased this freezer to store my wife's breast milk for my newborn. We're stocking up and she worked hard to make this milk for our kid so he has a supply when she goes back to work. We can't afford to have this freezer break down on us and destroy months and months of priceless hard work. Maytag's warranty repair guy didn't want to be here. At first he tried to convince me the noise was normal. Then he basically moved the freezer around until the noise stopped and said it wasn't level which it was. It started up again hours later. He blew off the job. Calling them again tomorrow. Never again will I buy Maytag. Never.

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by stop Lasted less than 2 years. DO NOT buy Maytag
I could not believe that this freezer only lasted 18 months. Paid 500.00 for a freezer for 5 years. Just quit cooling. Home Deport had nothing to say. Gave me the repair shop number.
Will never buy a Maytag again. You shouldn't either.

Lasted 2 years before the compressor went out. Freezer was set with plenty of ventilation and was opened only once or twice a week. At $550 you would think it should last for years!

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by MARA This freezer is awful!!!
This freezer defrosted itself! 3 times we lost all of our food so thankfully we had the extended warranty to cover $300 each time even though we lost more than that. The exact same thing happened 3 times. Still could not get it replaced even though it is clearly a lemon. Horrible mess with defrosted food running everywhere ... stinky!! Came home from vacation to a horrible mess ... TWICE! Warranty ends next month and they want to make the 3rd repair now. We will get it repaired, file for the $300 food loss and junk this thing! Don't buy Maytag! There is a reason this thing was discontinued! Stick with Frigidaire or one of the other good brands. This was a nightmare that was never rectified. I have NO faith that this 3rd fix will last and I can't go through this mess again.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Fontalor So far nice purchase
This is a good stuff for a large family that needs a lot of refrigerated food to avoid going to supermarket every other day . We put in the garage , so we don't hear any noise , but at the end it's not so noisy , just a bit when the motor start , and you can feel it , because is sucking quite a lot of current ; I can see the light sagging for a second . The appearance is good and there is planty of storage inside , on the shelves , and the door . Good feature also the light when you open the door .
It was a good deal so far , HD delivered directly into our garage , just need to plug in .

Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by starcald Has great features but doesn't last.
There is a reason it only has a 1 year warranty, because at 14 months I found the juice in the 2 top door shelves thawed out and discovered there was ice build up on the back wall between the 1st & 2nd shelf from the bottom. I took everything out and turned it off, let it set for several hours then removed the ice from the back wall. I worked ok for a few months then I found the food in the top shelf of the door and the freezer thawing out and the ice was back on the back wall. When I called the company to find out why it keeps doing that and they said it was because I had to much food in it. I told them that there was very little food in there because I was trying to use it all up, as I was afraid it was going to quit totally, and I didn't want to risk losing a lot of food. They just said it was something I wasn't doing right & to either figure it out or call a repairman.

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by JimB 3 year lifespan???
Just opened my freezer and found everything thawed and ruined. Compressor is running, but not cooling. Appliance is clean, well ventilated, etc - just quit working. What a piece of junk. I remember when Maytag was a very dependable and trustworthy brand. I'll never own another Maytag appliance of any kind.
