Maytag Refrigeratorcompressor burned out-5th year!

After 5th year — start relay burned out — just out of warranty! 4 months later — recall came out — had repairman come out and he put new relay on — compressor was seized!!! Had to go buy another refrigerator — never again a maytag!!! I am writing letters and posting notes for customers not to buy any maytag products. They will not goodwill any repairs after warranty has expired! What a bummer! So much for customer satisfaction. Oh, by the way — my ge refigerator lasted 26 years and only got rid of it to buy the maytag for a color change and size upgrade — not because it stopped working!!! Unhappy jim in virginia!!!

    Same exact thing happened to me with my "top of the line" whirlpool. Do they really make a product that costs this much to last five years? Amazing, is there any safe brand to buy that will back the compressor longer? The serviceman said alot of them are backed for ten years, I guess I will call him and find out what brand that it.
