        Delivered on time with no issues. Seems to be working properly and I feel it’s a great product for the price. Very spacious, love the light on the door and that it stays open on its own. Don’t know if I’ll use the refrigerator feature, but nice to know it’s always an option. Now I can buy in bulk without worrying if there’s enough space for storage.

        Its ok but the bulb went out
        Bulb went out before a year was up. Apparently the bulb is some mystical size. Bigger than E12, smaller than E17, but E14 is 'European' so I might just make a warranty claim and see if Maytag will send me one. Saw some bulbs on the maytag site for $54 but the bulb size isnt even listed in the manual and I am not paying $54 for a $4 part. It's a complete mystery.

          Good Freezer
          Capacity is spacious. Cooled quickly. Love the wheels! I have already had to move it to get stuff my cats knocked behind and it was easy to move, even with it loaded. I am not a fan of chest freezers, but this one is winning me over.
