15.8 cu. ft. Upright Freezer is rated 4.5528 out of 5 by 161.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from I love this freezer... I was accustomed to a chest type freezer that was over 30 years that was a manual defrost. I hated it because it seemed to ice up and food would disappear only to resurface months later. What a pleasure it was to plug in our new quiet upright Maytag freezer. The shelves were perfect for food storage and the frost-free part was really great. The capacity was excellent and to be able to view, rotate and keep track of freezer items, which saved us money, and was a big plus over the previous chest style freezer that the Maytag replaced. When the Maytag freezer door shuts you hear the quality, you can tell there is an airtight seal and the door has such a large storage capacity. Most of all the energy savings were noticeable on our very 1st electric bill. In short I wished I purchased the Maytag Freezer long before I did and I would recommend this product to anyone looking for a new freezer.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Junk Purchased less than a year ago, and freezer frosted up twice spoiling fish and deer meat. Just had repair man come out and replace the defrost timer. He said the timer motors are not reliable and will always have to be replaced. When this upright freezer frosts up, then the air will not circulate, which keeps the top part of the freezer at freezing temps. Maytag needs to stop producing this freezer, or engineer it better so it is reliable. Throwing this in the garbage, and buying a chest type freezer, which will certainly NOT be anything associated with maytag. Hopefully, Maytag will give me my $448 back. We'll see...

Rated 4 out of 5 by from This product meets our need in every way. We had a problem changing the direction the door opened but the service man solved the problem with no charge. About a month after purchase the defroster stopped working because of a faulty part. Now that it is replaced at no charge, we a very happy with the product and recommend this product to anyone who wants a small freezer. It is in the laundry room and makes very little noise.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Has broken twice in first year I replaced my 22 year old freezer that never missed a beat, thinking the energy efficiency alone would help pay for the purchase. I need to have a freezer because on a tight budget I buy food on sale and store in freezer for future use. First time freezer de thawed my $300 worth of food the tech arrived and adjusted auto defrost function. Freezer worked for 1 1/2 Months then same thing. Everything defrosted again. This time I lost another $200.00 worth of food. Tech came and I insisted the part be replaced. When the motor kicks on it still makes noise. Now this freezer scares me to death and I'm hesitant to use it for my intended purpose. Maytag freezer broke down not only once, then twice. You know what they say about the third time. (Not a charm) Avoid this product and get something else.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love it!! This is the best stand alone freezer we have had! I love the fact that the temperature control is in the front so it can be gotten to without unloading the freezer shelf because it is in the back of the freezer! There is almost no noise. The only noise I have noticed is when it was first plugged and had to wait 24 hrs to let it get up to the desired temperature and occasionally the dripping water as it does a bit of defrosting. I also love the bottom shelf with the swing grate door! I put my bread down there so it doesn't dry out and it keeps them from being smashed on the other shelves. It also isn't the typical rectangle freezer. Yes, the box of the freezer is rectangle but the door is slightly bowed outward with a slight arch to the top of it making it a more decorative appliance instead of the typical rectangle of chest or stand alone freezers. The rack style shelves are easier to clean and are easily removed to clean the walls! And..it was only a few dollars more than the last stand alone freezer we bought that only lasted 3 years! I've had Maytag appliances before and they are very reliable!
