Answer: 
I appreciate the links and explanation, but the model number provided (for the right hand mounted handle) is for a different refrigerator with a 33" width) the original left side mounted handle has a 30" width. Very confusing to potential buyers.

Thank you for suggestions on how to stage this Maytag Refrigerator on a showroom floor. We'll have to pass it along as a best practice. As for a frozen pizza, depending on size, you shouldn't have any trouble putting one in the freezer. A typical grocery store frozen pizza would easily fit in there.

Switching hinge sides - really?

Asked by
Akinsrule
July 25, 2013
I too am wanting to switch hinge sides (swing left, open on right), but if you do that, I don't where the handle goes - there are no handle holes on the other side of the door. Do you flip the door upside down, or how do you adhere the handle on the other side if you can truly switch the hinges????? I would appreciate an answer from a Maytag person.

Do you have the water line connected? Of you don't then raise the bar in the ice make all the way up instead of it being in the downward position. If the line is connected you will need to pull it put of the barbed copper fitting and use a plug in the end.

Answer: 
lynn,
There are a couple of screws and a wire set that need to be disconnected. It is a fairly simple process to complete. For detailed instructions on how to disconnect, you would need to call The Home Depot/Maytag Hotline at 877.461.3376, option 1, option 5 and they would be able to walk you through it or provide detailed instructions. Thank you for viewing this Maytag home appliance.

Rated 4.0 out of 5 by 87 reviewers.
Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Cheap Only after a total of six months of use the bottom of the freezer started to form a thick layer of ice.Water then started to seep out onto the floor. July 18, 2016
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Great value for price Read reviews on so many refrigerators! This one turned out to be a great pick. I didn't find the review that there was an "odor" that couldn't be removed held up - per instructions I immediately washed with mild dish soap - gone for good. Also do not find it to be noisy at all. But it's in a basement rec room and we're not there as much, say , as in our kitchen. Didn't want the ice maker (basement - water risk) and instructions for removing it were a cinch. Like the choice of a rounded door (great feature) since we set ours up close to a wall. Overall what we expected and we are very happy with the purchase (we've had it about a month now.) August 14, 2012
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Great product and good value This is a nice looking stainless steel fridge/freezer with black side panels. It's the perfect size for a small family. We love having the fridge at eye level as we access the fridge a lot more than the freezer. The fridge is a good size and shelves etc are adjustable. The freezer is also an ok size . We do find that the ice maker takes up quite a large space but you can remove this if you need too. We also find the fridge is pretty quiet which is nice. As with all stainless steel appliances, you will get fingerprints on there. However you can pick up a stainless steel cleaner so it's not that much of a big deal. We're super happy with it so far !!! February 25, 2014
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Love my New MAYTAG Love my new Maytag! Great size for me. Love the adjustable shelves. Big decision for me since I put tall items that are oversized tall. So many decisions on deciding on what you're looking for in a fridge. I made sure I was in stores checking out all other brand and sizes before deciding on this unit. Expert delivery men and were very careful coming up narrow stairs to not scratch item. Couldn't have asked for more. ON TIME too! Telephone call within a half hour of delivery in the 4 hour window. Truly a happy customer! Not sure of energy savings yet since I've only had 3 weeks, but it's a quiet unit and gets cold fast. HAPPY HAPPY HAPPY! May 15, 2012
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by All-around great product I have a smaller kitchen and had a hard time finding a bottom-freezer fridge that fit my available space. This model looks sleek and upgrades the whole kitchen's appearance. It has ample space and the side drawers allow us to store all the many different juices/teas our family of four likes to drink. The spill-proof shelves are very easy to clean. The fridge does make some noise but it is not very noticeable and after a while I don't think you'd even be aware of it. It also costs much less to run than our previous fridge. All in all a great product. March 28, 2014
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by This is a good product for the price. After searching months for a bottom freezer with a door and not a drawer I came across this Maytag model. I had a 21 cu. ft. refridgerator before and was use to a little more space and two shelves on the freezer door. However the space seems to be sufficient. I got a tip from another purchaser who said to have the icemaker uninstalled if not using. That would eliminate the noise of the icemaker trying to make ice when there was no water line hooked up. I took that advice and the motor runs smoothly. Also the ability to position the 1/2 shelves as you desire has allowed me to place tall items on a shelf that I was unable to do with my old refridgerator. All and all I am happy with my purchase. December 19, 2012
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Great Performance I bought this 6 months ago and am happy with the performance of the refrigerator. There is ample space in the unit. The re-configurable shelving units and drawers make it easy to customize the inside. The movable storage on the door is easy to use for small items as well as large items up to a gallon of milk. The ice maker in the freezer works well and produces a large amount of ice that serves well for entertaining. Overall, great product, and I am hoping to see it last for a long time. July 27, 2014
Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by Some great features.....some not so much This refrigerator has a great design and I love the adjustable, easy clean shelves! I have a very small opening for a refrigerator and this is the only model that would fit. However, the drawback is - the handle on the fridge door is NOT reversible.....the freezer is (but why would you want one door going one way and the other door opposite! The instructions in the manual that comes with refrigerator shows it can be changed - but it cannot! I think the freezer would be much better if it were a drawer and not door with pull out basket. (Just my 2 cents). April 30, 2013
