In my opinion, generally not. most extended warranties do not cover user "abuse" or "wear-and tear", so any issues of this type will probably not be covered regardless (check the fine print to be sure). a refrigerator doesn't have moving parts like a washer or dryer does, so failure of any part on a new refrigerator within the original warranty period plus 4 additional years is unlikely. please keep in mind that purchase of extended warranties is an extremely personal choice. there are many factors that should go into the decision, including (but of course, not limited to) how much risk you are personally comfortable with, how much the refrigerator is worth, and if you would be able to afford an out-of-pocket repair. good luck!

Stopped making ice


I hate to say it.....heres a review "
This is the worst refrigerator I've ever purchased -- and it's all because of the icemaker. It's been repaired 7 times in the last 2 years thanks to having purchased an extended warranty. Predictably every 6 months, the icemaker stops functioning. There's a piece that jams. The repairmen are at a loss. I give up -- this weekend, I'm headed to my appliance shop and buying something different. Don't waste your money on this piece of junk...."

I think there is a genetic problem. Are you under warranty?

Unable to adjust temperature,food freezes even at 6 degrees It is a new Maytag mfi12266aes


Good day,
If it's new (under one year old) then all components are under factory warranty. Call your selling dealer for a warranty service call. It should be free.

New french door GE fridge that won't stay cold


If " new " is less than 1 year , you will need to call GE factory service , for a warranty repair . If any one else works on it , this will void your complete warranty , and they will charge you for a service call + parts + labor .

Frig. is 5 years old - Not cooling - Buzzing clicking sound


Sounds like the compressor or start relay have went out.
For any recall info you would need to give the full model and serial to the Maytag.

Maytag french door fridge crapped out....again


buzzing sound comes from freezer fan or ice maker fan. They are located behind the freezer rear wall. These freezer fan cools the freezer and the refrigerator. The ice maker fan supply air to ice maker.

Refrigerator doesn't cool/freeze - clicking, cyclying noise repeates, but doesn't cool


We had the same thing happen a little while back. The compressor went out and had to be replaced (it was under warranty, but the labor wasn't covered)

REF AND FREEZER STOP COOLING


We had a repairman come out, said it was the compressor, bad news...$650 if he repaired...good news...compressor under manufacturer's warranty for five years so you may want to call Maytag. It will be less expensive if the part is covered and you only have to pay for labor. Hope this helps. Bought our fridge 12/2004 so it was covered.
