Maytag MBR1953YES Reviews & Ratings

MBR1953YES 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 Stainless Steel is rated 4.375 out of 5 by 40.
Rated 3 out of 5 by from Some great features.....some not so much This refrigerator has a great design and I love the adjustable, easy clean shelves! I have a very small opening for a refrigerator and this is the only model that would fit. However, the drawback is - the handle on the fridge door is NOT reversible.....the freezer is (but why would you want one door going one way and the other door opposite! The instructions in the manual that comes with refrigerator shows it can be changed - but it cannot! I think the freezer would be much better if it were a drawer and not door with pull out basket. (Just my 2 cents).

Rated 5 out of 5 by from All-around great product I have a smaller kitchen and had a hard time finding a bottom-freezer fridge that fit my available space. This model looks sleek and upgrades the whole kitchen's appearance. It has ample space and the side drawers allow us to store all the many different juices/teas our family of four likes to drink. The spill-proof shelves are very easy to clean. The fridge does make some noise but it is not very noticeable and after a while I don't think you'd even be aware of it. It also costs much less to run than our previous fridge. All in all a great product.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great design for small space! This fridge is beautiful and the size is perfect for a standard kitchen fridge replacement. I've searched and searched for a replacement fridge (with the door on the bottom) to modernize my kitchen and this fridge is perfect. I've had it for almost 2 years and it is maintaining perfectly. The space in the doors and various pull out drawers (top and bottom) really maximize the space. There is a humming noise every now and again, but this is drown out easily.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Super Organized Because of our kitchen setup, we were limited in the type and size of the refrigerator we could get so I wasn't planning to be impressed. But I am! There are all sorts of adjustable shelves and drawers so you can basically create the exact refrigerator you want on the inside. I don't love the freezer - it's basically one big drawer that can be hard to manage on the bottom - but it does its job. Certainly not a deal breaker if you don't rely heavily on it.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Fridge on Top is a Good thing Having the fridge on top and freezer on bottom is useful for me as I go into the freezer less frequently tan the fridge. The freezer door design is nice because every time I want to open the freezer I am not pulling out the entire freezer contents drawer. The unit is noisier than the fridge I replaced that was @18 years old. It is also hard to keep the stainless steel clean. Overall, I think this was a good value for the price I paid.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great refrigerator. Great refrigerator. I love the door capacity. The freezer is good sized. My previous refrigerator had a top freezer. The bottom freezer design is much nicer. The glass shelves in the refrigerator are good quality, and the bins for fruits or vegetables are big. The stainless steel finish works well with my nickel drawer pulls and faucet. Overall I am very pleased with my new refrigerator, and I would recommend it to anyone.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from This product is everything one could possibly want in a refrigerator The ability to move shelves around to accommodate all my produce is an invaluable feature. An inch up or down and I can store 2 liter bottles where they didn't fit before. The ice-maker is awesome. All in all, this is the best refrigerator I have ever owned, and trust me when I tell you that I have owned the top brands before, but this one outperforms them all. Thank you Maytag for a truly great product.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love it!! Had a top freezer and hated it.........bought this refrigerator and what a relief. My back is no longer hurting from going down to the floor for the vegtable drawers. It is very quiet and there is great room on the inside of the door for all those things like catsup, mustard etc. Had to buy small because of the space in the condo kitchen. This was the ONLY one we could find that would fit.

What exactly is an Extended Service Plan?
An extended service plan is generally an extension of your original manufacturer's warranty. Most manufacturers warranty their products to be free from defects for up to one year from the date of purchase. This warranty virtually guarantees you that if your newly purchased product fails, the manufacturer will protect you from the high costs of replacement parts and labor necessary to repair your product. Extended service plans lengthen your product's coverage for up to an additional 60 months (5 years) to insure you get years of performance satisfaction from your newly purchased product.
How is this different than the manufacturer's warranty?
A manufacturer's warranty usually offers limited coverage for a limited time, with parts and labor carrying separate lengths of coverage. For example, a common manufacturer warranty of a product might cover a consumer for one full year on parts defects but only 90 days on the high cost of labor involved to change those parts. Extended service plans provide comprehensive, long term, even length coverage. This means that should your product fail within your plans coverage time frame, both parts and labor costs are covegrey.
How do I buy an Extended Service Plan?
Extended Service Plans can be purchased along with your product online, or via our toll free number.
Can I renew my Consumer Priority Service extended service plan?
Yes, service plans are renewable and must be submitted 30 days prior to the original plans expiration. Please contact a sales representative to discuss your renewal options.
What should I do if I need extended service?
Our extended service providers offer an easy to use interactive form online which you may use to request that they initiate a claim on your product. Your other alternative is to call the toll-free number on your extended warranty card or email and have a qualified representative make this request for you with the information you will provide. We believe that our claim initiation request process is the absolute best our industry has to offer. It is designed for simplicity and speed.
Who will perform the service on my product?
Our company works with over 11,000 authorized service professionals. Each technician is extensively trained by the respective manufacturers to provide service on your products. Authorized technicians must complete annual and bi-annual continued education exams in addition to being well versed in manufacturer supplied update bulletins to ensure their level of expertise is as current as the new products which come to market. We urge our customers to provide feedback regarding their experiences which we later use to insure that the level of service we are expected to provide is exactly the level of service you receive.
May I transfer my extended service plan to another person?
Our service plans are 100% transferable. If you would like transfer ownership of the covegrey product along with its coverage, we require that the request be supplied in writing. For assistance please contact a Representative. Please have all of the new owner's information at hand when requesting a transfer.
Will I have to pay a deductible or any other "hidden costs"?
Generally, the amount of a deductible is almost always proportional to the amount of the premium charged. In order to have a lower deductible, even as low as $0, the plan holder would generally have to agree to a higher premium. For those who want lower premiums, they must agree to a higher deductible. Our extended service plans carry a $0.00 deductible along with low premiums. This means that with an extended service plan there are no high upfront costs and they are committed to cover 100% parts and labor costs on any authorized claim.
When does my warranty start?
Depending on the type of coverage you own, an extended warranty begins at the conclusion of the shortest portion of the manufacturer’s warranty. If the manufacturer’s warranty was 90 day labor and 1 year parts, the extended warranty would begin on the 91st day and continue for the duration of the warranty period. All replacement, commercial and accidental plans begin on the date of purchase.
Why does my plan say "under $1000"?
Some plans carry a dollar value on them. This means that your product's purchase price, excluding tax, delivery and accessories is below the listed price on the contract. It's simply a classification based on the price of purchase of the product under warranty.
What does an accidental plan cover?
If you have added Accidental Coverage to your plan, this plan shall cover unintentional damages as a result of: impact, liquid damage or unintentional physical damage. Accidental Coverage does not cover intentional damages of any kind to the covered product or losses due to theft. Accidental Coverage does not cover willful damage, misuse, damage due to neglect, drops over 6 feet, fire damage or full immersion in water.

Accidental Coverage does not cover damage caused by the use of a product in a way the manufacturer never intended. Coverage for this plan shall begin 30 days after the date of purchase of the covered product.
Is my service plan worldwide?
All plans carry a worldwide option at no additional charge. Contact a sales professional for further details.
Who do I contact with further questions?
Please contact a sales professional at 1-800-299-9470.
