Lowes - Maytag Bottom Freezer Refrigerator / no more maytag in the future!
Purchased a new Maytag bottom freezer refrigerator from Lowes in June 2006. Lowes took our old refrigerator, so we kept all our cold and frozen items in freezer chests until the new Maytag had the proper temperatures.
Five hours went by and the new Maytag was not cold.
We called Lowes and they said that it may take up to 12 hours before the cooling kicks in. 12 hours went by and still no cold. We called Lowes again, they gave us a Maytag number to call. Maytag told us that it could take up to 24 hours.
The next day, 24 hours gone, still no cold temps in the Maytag. By this time our food in the freezer chests was beginning to spoil. We called Maytag again, they said it must have malfunctioned and to call Lowes. Lowes said that they would bring another refrigerator, which they did the next day. However, by then, all our food was spoiled.
Lowes said they would replace the refrigerator, but could not replace the food - that was Maytag's responsibility. We called Maytag the same day, but they said they could not replace the food because we had not purchased an extended warranty. We were very surprised because we thought the refrigerator should at least work when brand new and that the original warranty should cover everything. Maytag had no sympathy, said that it was something we would have to live with and that they would rush a new refrigerator to us.
We decided that another Maytag was not in our future. We called Lowes, which was very sympathetic, cancelled the Maytag and ordered a GE Profile Bottom Freezer. It has worked perfectly and has several features we liked much better, especially the storage in the bottom freezer and the dual temperature displays in the upper section.
