Maytag MFI-2568 AEB French Door "ICE 2-0" - is a Piece of Garbage

Our Open Air Maytag ICE 2-0 without the right side door!!!! Talk about OPEN AIR!
Here it is in a nutshell. Bought my Maytag MFI-2568 AEB French Door "ICE 2-0" for $2200 at Home Depot in May of 2006. One year and one month out of the warranty, the electronics went totally wacko and then died.
Apparently, the circuit board that runs the whole refrigerator was defective. The good news about that, is that Maytag acknowledged a defect and posted a "recall" so it didn't cost us any money.
That said, we've had the unit only 4 years. FOUR YEARS people. I came downstairs to my wife screaming help the other day to discover the right side door had literally fallen off the hinges and shattered on the tile.
Milk, juice and butter flew everywhere, and of course, a repair was out of the question (the quotes were around $800 to replace the door).
We had to buy a new fridge.
Now, of course, you're thinking, "Well, what did you buy?" My appliance guys (NOT Home Depot) convinced us that the Maytage ICE-2-0 units are now made by Whirlpool and an entirely different animal. Much better quality.
They also had them on sale with big rebates. And we took the 5 year extended warranty. And he assures me it will fit into the same space in our newly renovated kitchen!
I tried reaching Maytag to complain to NO AVAIL.
So much for the myth of the Maytag Repair man.
After note: I checked in Consumer Reports. Maytag does not have a very good rating in terms of service... Oy vay!
