Refrigerator doors rusing on outside

I was hoping to find an official Whirlpool site to send my complaint to.

I have a Whirlpool Refrigerator Model ED20PKXWW00 that is 7 years old. I noticed some brown spots on the outside of the doors. Tried to clean it with household cleaner, but the spots wouldn't come off. That was about 6 months ago. Now both doors are rusting from the inside out and it's to the point that it is really noticeable. Surely the paint on a refrigerator should last longer than 7 years. I only ever cleaned it with Windex, 409, or just wiped it with the dish rag when doing dishes. My first refrigerator lasted 26 years and still didn't break or rust. We just needed a bigger one.

SOURCE: Rust spots appearing on front of doors of kitchen (indoor) Kenmore refrigerator.

its what we in the business call "refrigerator cancer" they are rusting form the inside out. there is not repairing them and not worth the cost of replacing, you can take them off and spray them you might get a little time outta them. reason it happens is the insulation used years ago was fiberglass and would trap moisture between door and liner, eventually rusting through.. new refrigs are insulated with blown in poly-styrene. they don't hold moisture.

SOURCE: Repainting doors on whirlpool white refrigerator

oowwwww!!! thats what we call in the refrig biz "refrig cancer" the door itself is actually rusting from the inside out. the older refrigs used fiberglass insulation inside the doors which has a tendency to hold moisture, and overthe years rusts through. the new door use blown-in poly styrene foam far less likey to hold moisture. That being said you could remove the door lightly sand and paint, can of krylon enamal aint should do it, at least for a little while anyway

You can purchase a bottle of rust converter at any auto parts store, and then all you need to do is purchase appliance paint..

Whirlpool model et18tk and the side of the fridge gets hot? It it junk?


This is normal unless the refrigerator is not cooling properly. There is a pipe that goes around the door that carries hot Freon to keep the doors from sweating where the cold inside meets the warm air outside. This area will become extremely hot should the airflow below the refrigerator become obstructed or the condenser fan below the refrigerator not be working properly

How to reinsert ice maker into 1992 Model TS25AF


You unscrew the srews holding the ice maker into the refrigerator. There may be 2 or 3. Then you should unplug any electrical connection, and saw on another site you need to remove the arm and install it onto the new ice maker. Then replace the new ice maker into refrigerator. There should be a different piece that's actually connected to the water input and then sends the water into the Icemaker.

Frig is very hot on the outside ban that meets the seal


That heat that you feel is part of the design of all refrigerators. Those heaters are there to keep water from condensing on the outside of the cabinet around the freezer door. Just like water condenses on a cup of Ice water. It will do the same on a refrigerator. If those small heaters were not there. The water would cause the paint to rust badly. There are various arrangements of heaters used on Freezers and refrigerators around the doors. Particularly the Freezer door.
As long as the fridge is cooling properly it is fine.
If the fridge fails to get cold, the outside of the cabinet will actually get quite hot.
Hope this helps,
Best, Mark

Refrigerator side door bottom hinge broke loose.


Mr, Harrison although I'm sympathetic to your issue, there is no solution that I or anyone at this sight can offer you, for this is merely a do-it yourself-er, repair site,. I would suggest that this be re-posted with an appropriate Whirlpool customer service related site. Good luck with everything!
