As of 2015, the warranty for Maytag refrigerators covers the cost for the replacement parts and any labor required to rectify defects related to workmanship and materials. The warranty is valid only if the refrigerator is properly installed and maintained after it's purchased.
Maytag can offer a full replacement at its own discretion if a malfunction or a problem related to the refrigerator crops up within a period of one year after the purchase. In that case, the warranty period for the new refrigerator is equal to the remaining warranty period of the original appliance.
In the period between two and 10 years after the purchase of a Maytag refrigerator, Maytag covers the cost of factory-specified replacement parts that serve to correct non-cosmetic problems that prevent the appliance from functioning properly. The extended warranty only covers the replacement of the compressor, while the customer has to pay for the repair labor.
Maytag stipulates that the repair service has to be provided by a service company that it designates itself. Furthermore, the limited warranty is only valid in the United States and Canada if that the refrigerator is used in the country where it was purchased. Customers are required to provide proof of original consumer purchase if they want to obtain the services provided by Maytag and the warranty.
