        Comments about Maytag 21.9 Cu. Ft. Bottom Freezer Refrigerator - Stainless Steel:

        The refrigerator is an excellent value in the price range. We really like bottom freezer as it keeps more accessed food at eye level. No more kneeling down to see food at the bottom. The exterior is fashionable, we liked the black painted siding instead of gray. The stainless exterior spots but not as bad as other models. The freezer may be small for some families but we don't buy a lot of frozen foods. The ice machine is not as accessible as a door model. Crisper drawers feel clumsy. The compressor isn't terribly loud. The ice machine can be noisy at times.

          It works good. I do not like the thing in the top that hangs down where the dials are. I like the milk on the door. The drawer slides could be better. The freezer could be smaller and the top bigger.

              This has been a GREAT refridge. We had a crack in one of the drawers and within in 3 days a replacement was sent., N/C all is well!

                  I love freezer on bottom fridges so this is the one for me. It was the largest one that would fit my space. It doesn't have a ice despencer but it doesn't bother me to scoop ice out of the bin. I love the space in the top and bottom. I was able to get a 17 pound turkey both. The compressor is a bit noisy which concerns me on its longevity. So far so good in the 8 months I have had it.

                      I love the bottom freezer on this model. Very roomy and easy to open. The top of the refrigerator has lots of room to store stuff

                          This was the first fridge we have bought in 22 years and we were limited on space. We wanted a water/ice dispenser but due to the size of the fridge with a water/ice dispenser, it would not go in our allotted space. We researched this particular fridge and even though, it does not offer a water/ice dispenser it does have a bottom freezer which for us, is a nice change. You do have a nice amount of room in the bottom freezer and your food can be recognized without having to move too many things around. The name Maytag has stood the test of time and even our repairman highly suggested the name Maytag!

                              We were looking for a bottom freezer refrigerator but many of the current models were either too big to fit in our space or had too many bells and whistles that we didn't want or need. This is a wonderful refrigerator and helps us organize all of our stuff very conveniently. Having the refrigerator on the top is so logical - it's a wonder refrigerators haven't always been built that way. Oh, and my Dad no longer needs to worry about hitting his head on the outside corner of the freezer door when he stands up from foraging in the refrigerator.

                                  This unit replaced a 21 year old top freezer model. Typical "should have done it a long time ago, but didn't" Now that I know how much better a fridge can be, I should have replaced it long ago. The movable shelves, deep door shelves and large freezer with sliding basket make this unit a winner. I am anxious to see what power savings are realized by buying the new Energy Star fridge.

                                      Loved the fridge when we got it. Good design, seemed like a lot of room. The bridge that held the two drawers cracked after four months. Then the compressor failed after six months. Both were covered under warranty but now I'm waiting for what else can go wrong. This is our third fridge in 30 plus years so I'm used to getting long runs out of our appliances. I'm concerned as to what happens when it is out of warranty. So still enjoying the design but worried about the future.

                                          This refrigerator is a big change from the outdated model that we have had for years. Very spacious inside and we're enjoying the energy savings. The downside to the bottom freezer is that the large gaps in the bottom basket allow ice and smaller food items to fall out on to the floor occasionally.
