(Cons) The temperature controls are easy to read, but you don't have a reference point to the number. We ended up purchasing a dial thermometer to place in the refrigerator to determine the proper setting. We have to set the temp. to level 5 (of 7) in order to maintain about 40-45 degrees (F). I think that is kind of high. If you want to be able to reverse the upper door, this model is not the one to purchase.
(Pros) The upper door holds a gallon of milk or other large containers for easy access. The freezer is very efficient to use (compared to a side by side) and quite large (you can store larger items easily), and the unit is easy to clean if you have a spill. For the money, it is a fairly good value

What a great refrigerator. So easy to use and efficient. Maytag has always been our choice but this one out shined all the rest. Great buy. Delivery and set up was outstanding.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by mkjc07 Energy efficient and sleek
Great quality. A little loud at times. Fridge door is hard to open; however, the inside is fantastic. The removable shelves and door compartments are very user-friendly. Happy with the purchase thus far.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by sioushi Very quiet and efficient; great visibility; not quite enough door caddy space for cooks
We selected a 33" wide top-refrigerator model because we have a small kitchen and we were tired of having to get on our knees to see the bottom shelves of the old fridge. We chose the Maytag Eco-conserve model based on independent consumer magazine reviews and the brand reputation. The stainless steel cleans easily with soap and water, and the door makes a good tight seal to prevet air leaks. There were two minor cons. First, there was not enough door storage to hold our eight million chef condiments, so I ordered an extra door basket from Maytag customer service. That was an over-priced $50, but worth it for the storage, which is now perfect. The second con is that we ended up with less usable freezer space than with a top-freezer model, but then I'm no longer attacked by avalanches of bagged peas, and it's easier to see and use the frozen goods. Much of the space in our old top-freezer was taken up by unused and unusable goods.One day we'll add a chest freezer to the garage. I wish there was a water filter for the ice, but I can add an external filter to the water line. Note that the door swing is NOT reversible, and you have to order a left-hand model or a right-hand model, MBL or MBR. Overall we're very pleased with the purchase and find the interior spacious, well laid out, and easy to clean. The energy efficiency and quiet operation is a huge plus. No issues with inconsistent chilling, and very quiet.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by smartpigmom3 Great fridge
This was my first time purchasing a fridge from Home Depot on line, and I was very satisfied with over all experience. It's been only 2 weeks and first time owning Maytag but so far so good. I did quite a bit of research before buying so felt pretty good on decision. The fridge itself is great. I didn't like the side-by-side I had owned, but love the freezer on the bottom like this one. The capacity is great, it can store a big box of frozen pizza or casserole dish. The fridge section is super roomy although I wish vegetable bins were little bit bigger. Very quiet, efficient, and easy to clean. I love stainless steel. I am very satisfied with my purchase.

I got my new fridge about three weeks ago (November 2012), right before Black Friday. After reading some of the feedback from other buyers I felt good about my purchase. In the past, I have had issues with Whirlpool appliances which of course is the same manufacturing company as Maytag. I can say that this refrigerator is 10xs roomier than my old Whirlpool side-by-side. I purchased it in stainless steel. Not alot issues with fingerprints since I live alone. I love the adjustable shelves and there is plenty of storage. I can open the door and know where everything is. Overall I am happy with my purchase and I hope a year or two from now I wont be disappointed.

Don't buy this refrigerator without an extended warranty. The freezer coils ice up, goes down into freezer floor and when it melts it puddles out onto the floor and then you have to tear it apart which isn't easy and it's a pain. We only had this frig for 1 1/2 years. I understand from reading on the internet that it'll do it again. Had to go on you tube to find out how to tear it apart. No instructions in manual and the manual is about worthless. Takes about 3 hours to tear apart and thaw out the coils and plug. Should not have to do this. We had an Amana for 15 years and never had to do anything to it. Very disappointed in the Maytag refrigerator. Wouldn't recommend.

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Michelle7145 I'm shocked this product has received such high reviews!
I purchased my fridge in November 2010 and absolutely loved it at first! Just over 1 year later, and I mean a few days after the Maytag warranty expired, I started having issues. Thankfully I purchased the extended warranty plan for 4 years! It is now July 2013 and I have had 4 service calls in the last year and a half! There is different things breaking or needing to be replaced each time, so it doesn't qualify under their "lemon law" for replacement. This fridge is an absolute piece of junk! if I would have read others reviews NOT on this site I probably would have never purchased it in the first place!!!
