My sixteen month old Maytag Microwave is broken again. I really think that this one is a Lemon. It’s a Model MMV4205AAB, and the Magnetron was replaced about six weeks ago. This time it is completely dead, and just blows the circuit breaker for the circuit that it is attached to. Customer Service told my wife on Friday, that they would authorize Dependable Appliance for a repair call. Dependable Appliance told my wife that they would no longer be servicing any microwaves. She spoke to Adrianna at Dependable on Ext. 6379. Service from Maytag has been simply deplorable. The repair people at A&E Factory Service were nasty, to say the least.
The first Service Appointment was August 24,2007 (8 AM – 12 PM). The repairman finally came at 1:50PM, and when I asked why it was after 12PM (without a phone call), he headed toward his truck and said “if you really want it before 12, I can schedule it for another day”. When the second person came (a week and a half later )to put in the part, he almost left because he needed help to dismount and remount the Microwave from under the cabinets. If I hadn’t helped him, I would probably still be waiting. All I ever really do, is wait for Maytag Service. I have a temporary solution while waiting. I have purchased a spare Microwave, (of course not Maytag) for when the Maytag is out of service. The original service call to Maytag started on August 2th, 2007, and Maytag claims that they can have someone from A&E Factory Service out to our home on October 8th, 2007. I don't feel bad telling visitors why the GE Microwave is sitting on the counter, while a Maytag Microwave is mounted over the cook-top. I really wouldn't be surprised if no
one showed up to repair the Microwave on October 8th.
