“My american Fridge Freezer is 5 years and 4 months...”

Written on: 07/05/2011 by robfreel (1 review written)

My american Fridge Freezer is 5 years and 4 months old, has stopped working and have been advised that its the compressor. cost to repair is over 500 pounds more that half the cost of it when new. Repair company advised against repairing. Has anybody else had this problem. No help from Maytag when asking how long this product would be expected to last. they deny any problems with this machine.

If purchasing again I would not select Maytag. whilst the machine looks perfectly good from the outside its obviously the cheap compressor imports and motors that are failing.

I wish someone would challenge maytag on the numbers of breakdowns they are having with this machine.

My Maytag American style fridge freezer is just 4 years old & the compressor has packed up. A local engineer told me a new compressor would cost £500+ (not including labour)but he is unable to fit as it contains the old style gas which needs a licensed engineer to replace. He was surprised that it did not have the ozone friendly gas which all refrigerators should now have. The cost for a Maytag engineer to call was extortionate. This model was in excess of £2000 new and I would expect the parts to last much longer. Interestingly, if you live in USA or Canada, the compressor is covered under their warranty for 10 years! Why does that not apply to UK? I would not recommend Maytag to anyone!
