Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Decatur Problems within the first year
This freezer had a problem (defrost timer) within the first year and I lost all the food in it. Now it's been 3 years since I purchased it and it now has leaked all the freon and another freezer full of food is ruined. I had bought the extended warranty so it could be worse but once it's fixed this time, I'm getting rid of it. I will not be buying anything with Maytag brand on it in the future.

We bought this freezer about a month ago and so far it has been great. I love that it is frostfree - it's the first freezer we've owned that is frost free and would never go back! I like that there is enough space for all our food - especially when we have 1/2 beef and pig we fill it with. The only thing I notice is that when it is running through it's cooling cycle it is a little louder than our old freezer - but not a big deal for us since it is not in the main living area. The frostfree feature FAR outweighs a bit of noise. Would definitely purchase this freezer again. It serves our family of 5 needs and then some!

We've had this appliance for a month now. So far, everything is going fine. We've had no problems with any frosting. I appreciate the temperature controls that are found inside and easily accessible. You do have to prop the door open, when loading with sides of meat, or bulk amounts of food. Once that door closes, you have to wait about 5 minutes before you can open the door, again. For security, we've had to wrap the entire freezer with a plastic coated chain with a padlock. We raise our own Irish Dexter Cattle. And we've had issues with someone in the area getting into our basement and stealing meat.

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by goldenruleproduce worked just long enough for the warranty to run out!
We replaced a 50 year old freezer that finally died with this product, talk about disappointment. After arriving about 3 weeks late it worked for just over a year. From the every beginning, even on the coldest setting I could not keep ice cream in the freezer because it wouldn't stay firm. I went to get something out the other day and the top 2 shelves were completely thawed out. And of course we have no recourse because we did not purchase the extended warranty, which I think is a crock!!!! Like I said I replaced a 50 year old freezer with this one and it did not even work for 2 years.

Within the first 8 months, the fan motor died and had to be replaced! Two years later, the fan motor needed to be replaced again to the tune of $400!!!!! That's over half what I paid for it less than 3 years ago!!!!

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by GD2009 Good freezer at a decent price
We've had it a month and have been happy with it. The storage space is good and it doesn't run all the time like our older freezer. Hopefully it will provide the energy savings promised. The people who delivered it switched the door opening side for us, but didn't do it properly. Maytag sent someone out right away and fixed the issue. If I had one thing to change it would be to put wire brackets on the door shelves rather than the single piece molded plastic. That would provide an extra 1/4 inch of space on each shelf.

Have had freezer maybe a yr. (give or take) & I have had to defrost three times. The bottome grill keeps freezing over. Last time (I hadn't gotten into it for some time & found the top two shelves thawed or soft - lost several items. Will be calling a service repair & do not recommend this model/make for a freezer.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Saeed Great freezer for the price
We have a 2 year old toddler and just had twins and wanted a large capacity freezer but didnt need a digital display or extra features for something we wouldnt be adjusting very often. I was planning on getting something smaller but after reading reviews of people who have had a Maytag for 30+ years I figured we would grow into it. I have had it for just over 6 months and it works great, its in our basement and is pretty quiet. We haven't filled it up yet, it is so roomy with lots of door and shelf space. I have never owned a Maytag appliance but am glad I got this one
