Maytag - Quality Issues, Refrigerator and Wall Oven
PEORIA, ILLINOIS -- We purchased a new Double Wall Oven and a new Maytag refrigerator, double door with freezer at bottom approx. two years ago. We installed the new oven and it would not operate. A service call (remove oven from cabinet again) revealed that a elctrical wire behind the back cover had not been connected to the terminal. The refrigerator operated for approx. 2 years and we discovered that the unit was not cooling. Lost quite a bit of food and condiments, and a service call($138.00) revealed a faulty electrical relay. The warranty period today is only one year on appliances verses the old days of 5 years on a compressor. The quality of todays modern annd technical highly educated personell does not even come close to the reliabilty and security of the older appliances. It was not at all unusual to have the old appliances still functioning well after many many years of service. It would appear that based on todays warranties and service problems that we experience, the corporations are designing appliances for a much shorter life expectancy/failure. POOR QUALITY AT THE EXPENSE OF CONSUMERS!(we also purchased a new washing machine that required a new motor with approx. 2 years of service and only 2 people in household??
