Stainless repair I did the absolute dumbest think I've ever done. Stainless fridge was getting what looked like rust pits and I used a abrasive to clean leaving a dull spot. Is there any hope for repair?

OHHH NOOO!!! , you can try to fix or at least lessen the blemish but you need to take y ou time doing so. being depending on the door freezer($650) and refrig($525) replacingthe door not a viable solution.. just like a piece of wood your refrig door has a "grain" to it, i would get some WD40, and VERY lightly at first and incresing the pressure as you go rub over teh spot with the grain of the metal(generally runs up and down on the KA refrig doors. the WD40 will act as a cutting oil and clean ,polish, and protect the metal as well the dull spot was probably caused be circular motion of previous cleaning, straight lines only up and down following the grain you should def reduce the blemish

How do I clean, what appears to be, rust marks on my stainless steel refrigerator


DO NOT use anything but a dedicated stainless steel cleaner. Some types of Windex have ammonia as one of the ingredients and you can imagine what that will do to your stainless steel finish.

If my Kitchen Aid KSF26C6XYY00 door is in fact made of stainless steel, why do fridge magnets stick to it? Ohter people I know that have stainless steel fridges say that the magnets do not stick to t


Stainless steel is a term for a family of high chromium steels, some of which do in fact stain, although they do not rust as ordinary steel does.

The more expensive 'austenitic' stainless is non-magnetic, but harder to work into product shapes. 'Martensitic' stainless is a little more prone to staining and corrosion, but easier to work with, and is magnetic. Then 'ferritic' stainless is even cheaper, but less corrosion proof, and is also magnetic.

So yes, many stainless steels are magnetic, and if the manufacturer has not used the very most corrosion proof but expensive grade, then you will see it in that way. I would not see much reason for a fridge door to be made from austenitic stainless.

O.com How do I safely remove multiple rust marks from my stainless steel Frigidaire fridge with top and bottom doors?


You may have been victim of 'Stainless Steel Look' which isn't stainless but is polished steel with a thin lacquer clear-coat. Some Kenmore units were sold with that designation, yours may have carried that too.

You might try with rubber gloves and a disposable cloth moistened on one corner with Lime Away or an equivalent product and gently massage one area that isn't terribly visible.
After trying, wipe the area with clean water whether it did or didn't work. If it removed the rust, the metal probably isn't 'stainless.'

Our Bosch stainless steel fridge is 2 or three years old. It has developed rust marks on the door. What can we do to correct this?


Fist call the company where you bought it from to see if there is a warrenty covering this, next you can use stainless steel whool pad like an sos pad to get it off with and getly rub it off then clean and dry and find some metal polish at an appliance shop to seal the stainless steel surface, if you need more help let me know.
