Maytag Air Conditioner Annual Repair Needs

BAKERSFIELD, CALIFORNIA -- The Maytag Air Conditioner we purchased works great when it is running. It is designed with a poor quality/underrated capacitor that fails regularly. It never seems to fail when it is cool but it waits until it is going to be 105 degrees for several days. It is a quick fix, if the contractor has it in stock. Now after a few short years, the blower motor has gone bad. Again, over 100 degrees for several days in a row and no one seems to have it in stock! If you are going to sell a product, why don't you have major parts in stock locally? Overall, we are not satisfied with this product and would not purchase or recommend Maytag Air Conditioners.

Maytag Won't Honor Their Warranty
By -

MICHIGAN -- After spending 20 minutes on hold, waiting for some assistance to help repair the four-year old Maytag Air Conditioner I have sitting in a window frame in my house; I found myself more frustrated than when I made the call. The customer service representative let me know that the Maytag branded air conditioner I purchased was actually made by Fedders – on behalf of Maytag. Fedders has since filed for bankruptcy protection, and the warranty that accompanies my Maytag Air Conditioner will be honored at some point in the future – could be a week, a month, a year, or a decade; but I'm covered because I called within the warranty period.

The senior leaders at Maytag made a decision – which I'm quite sure was based on lower manufacturing costs – to outsource the production of some of their air conditioners to Fedders, and now they want their trusting consumers to pay for their mistake.

I guess the contingency strategy is to minimize exposure; only disclose the details of the sub-contracting agreement with Fedders to those with equipment failures. Hide behind the legal system, and hope most of the problems go away – customers replace their air conditioners, and by the time Maytag is prepared to execute the warranty contract, the unit has been scrapped for its parts. This is unacceptable. I think a class-action lawsuit is in order.

Maytag - never again
By -

Brought model M6Q10F2D a year ago; it started acting up immediately + completely broke a few days after the warranty expired. Of course, no help on the Maytag end - a company who somehow does not take full responsibility for appliances bearing it's logo and name. I'll make sure never to buy any type of Maytag product ever again. A company that doesn't take responsibility is not a real company at all.

5-year warranty

LAKE WORTH, FLORIDA -- The Maytag Office keeps ignoring my complaints about our A/C not working. We called their local service company and they never called back, ever. We keep calling the 866-Maytag1 and every phone call is a different person. They act like this is the first time we called. I have been complaining since last summer about this A/C being loud. Now it will not cool. I ask to repair or send a replacement. Now they tell me I have to wait another two days for a regional manager to answer an email!
