Maytag MBF1953YEW Reviews & Ratings

MBF1953YEW 30" Freestanding Bottom Freezer Refrigerator With 18.5 Cu. Ft. Capacity, Automatic Moisture Control, Adjustable Door Bins, Auto Defrost and Glide-Out Wire Freezer, in White is rated 4.5796 out of 5 by 226.
Rated 4 out of 5 by from Nice basic "no frills" refrigerator. I've never had a freezer on the bottom model and I definitely love this style. My repair person said not to purchase a model with a lot of bells and whistles because it just means more can go wrong. I followed his advice and so far am pleased with this model. It is quiet when the door is closed, a little louder with it open. It wipes up very easily both inside and out. The drawers are a little flimsy and have to be opened and closed carefully. Also, the temperature gauge is located in an incovenient spot, right in the middle at the top so you can only put taller items on the sides. Overall, the capacity works for our family of five.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from This frig looks great and has so many nice features! I love this refrigerator! I was so pleased to find a bottom freezer refrigerator in the smaller size we needed to fit our space. It is very attractive and I love the sturdy shelving in the door. It holds so many things and is really well organized. The refrigerator capacity is great and I can easily find things on the shelves and in the drawers. The bottom freezer takes a little getting used to, but now I really like it! The basket pulls out a little to access your frozen food, and you can lift it a bit, and it pulls out further to get to the things in the back. I also like the handle as it has a smooth finish and cleans easily. A great buy for the money!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great Fridge for the price We first purchased this model for our vacation home about 2 years ago. We were so pleased that we decided to get the same model for everyday use at home. It has plenty of storage and the shelves are very easy to rearrange. My only complaint would be that the ice machine is very slow. If you have company over you need to plan ahead, the ice machine struggles to keep up. Sound is really not too much of an issue either. Overall it is a dependable, quiet, and good looking fridge for a good price. My wife and I are happy with the two that we own. I was also pleased to receive a credit from the utility company due to energy ratings.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Top refrigerator can't be beat Oh my gosh, I can't say enough about this fridge. For years I have complained about having to bend over to see what was in there. The years have taken a toll on my back so it was a situation that went from annoying to painful. I love that the fridge is on top and everything is at eye level and that I can fit all the large drink containers...soda, milk, juice etc on the door! Because I don't have to search for anything I'm in and out in a flash, which I would consider is a power saving in itself. Would highly recommend this particular model to a small family! It most certainly serves its purpose for the 4 of us :)

Rated 5 out of 5 by from The Best Refrigerator I Have Ever Owned The features of this refrigerator are everything I could ever want. The design with the bottom freezer is the way I feel a refrigerator should be. The lighting in both compartments is superb with the added freezer lighting a great feature. The noise level is such that I rarely know when it is running. My electric bill has already shown a drop in the first month I have had it. When I first saw this refrigerator on display I was so impressed I bought two of them. Another one for a friend of mine who is also impressed by its overall features. I have to say again this is the best refrigerator I have ever owned.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from better than most This is not the cheap-o fridge choice, and therefore the construction is of better quality. (That said, the humidity control lever broke off the day we received the fridge. Granted, it's an inexpensive part and yes, Maytag quickly replaced it without question, but that wee incident did not inspire confidence.) It is very well-designed in the interior and holds more, and more efficiently, than our previous fridge of the same size: bravo! At first we thought it was remarkably quiet, but as it has settled in, it does make intermittent loud-ish noises when the compressor kicks on for a couple of minutes. No biggie, really. A fine choice, if not a premium choice. Yes, I'd recommend it.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Attractive; Well-Designed Space I was replacing an older model with the freezer on the top and wanted a bottom freezer for my new unit. I was surprised at not finding many of these units to actually look at in the stores (there seem to be more French-door models than anything else) and, with my fingers crossed, I ordered this through Home Depot online. I am SO happy with it! I love the design and having my produce easily accessible (no more bending over)! The space inside both the refrigerator and freezer sections works well for me. The unit is attractive (I purchased it in black) and although I notice the sound it is not bothersome. I'm looking forward to the energy savings and hope to have this unit for years to come!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Who'd have thought I'd like a small fridge so much! I knew this was a smaller fridge, but I had no choice with the space available in the new home. I have a really bad lower back and this is just a dream!!!! I don't have to bend over every single time I go into the fridge. Everything is easy to see and well lighted. I really like that there's a door on the freezer, and it's not a big heavy drawer on the outside. Yes, the capacity is less than we're used to, but we put a fridge in the utility room for items less used, and a small one close to the master bath (for cosmetics, prescriptions, etc) and thus this is the perfect size for the kitchen.
