Not actual stainless steel or the magnets wouldn't stick then all those frige magnet companies would go out of business. Maytag should make a cleaner/protector spray or something that will clean that up. Even the DIY stores like Home Depot or Lowes, etc. should have that type of cleaner. Naval Jelly can work but test in on a spot that won't show in case it stains the finish more than helps remove the rust. And yes, that would be cosmetic issue not a warranty item usually BUT read the extended warranty yourself to see if there is a loophole!

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.

Rust spots appearing on the front doors of my Bosch refrigerator


Stainless steel does rust - or at least that is the theory.

There is in fact two types of stainless steel; the original categorised austenitic which is instantly recognised due to it being unable to attract a magnet due to the absence of iron. Austenitic is relatively expensive and difficult to work but adding iron in various quantities to the alloy produces a cheaper, lighter metal that looks good and is easier to work while still providing some resistance to corrosion. The more iron that is added to the ferritic type of stainless, the lighter, cheaper and easier it is to work but the corrosion resistance is substantially reduced.

Cars have been fitted with stainless steel exhaust systems of the ferritic type for many years and although they last a long time they soon show surface rust and sometimes will rust through.

I expect your fridge wipes are either acid or alkaline that are suitable only for austenitic and good grades of ferritic and Bosch have used a particularly poor grade of stainless. I expect fridge magnets stick very well...

Mild discolouration could be removed with a mild abrasive cleaner though that would tend to ruin the brushed finish. Clearly future cleaning should be carried out with a neutral ph cleaner and the surface protected with a hard wax polish.

I suggest you check the cleaning instructions in the Bosch instruction book. If you feel you have done nothing wrong you might be able to claim from your household insurer as accidental damage. It would be a good idea to inform the manufacturer of the cleaning wipes...

How to clean maytag stainless steel finish on appliances





HOW TO CLEAN MAYTAG STAINLESS STEEL REFRIGERATOR:





Do not use abrasive or harsh cleaners such as window sprays, scouring cleansers, flammable fluids, cleaning waxes, concentrated detergents, bleaches or cleansers containing petroleum products on plastic parts, interior and door liners, or gaskets. Do not use paper towels, scouring pads, or other harsh cleaning tools.




How do I clean and care my stainless steel surfaces such as refrigerator or any other stainless steel made appliance?

NOTE: Just because a cleaner is a liquid does not mean that it is nonabrasive. Many liquid cleaners designed to be gentle on tile and smooth surfaces still damage stainless steel.

> Avoid Citric acid

-it can discolors stainless steel. To avoid damage to the finish of your stainless steel appliance, do not allow these substances to remain on the steel finish:MUSTARD,TOMATO JUICE,MARINARA SAUCE,CITRUS-BASED SAUCES,CITRUS-BASED PRODUCTS.

If you want to clean safe and keep the sparkling steel you can purchase STAINLESS STEEL WIPES this wipes is ideal for cleaning food spills,grime and stains leaving surfaces shining like new. This wipes is for stainless parts only make it sure this stainless steel wipes to come into contact with any plastic parts.BUT THE SAFEST WAY TO CLEAN STAINLESS STEEL SURFACES IS TAP WATER WITH CLEAN WHITE CLOTH.

Rusting of the door on a stainless steel refrigerator


True stainless steel will not rust, but it can get rust stained, which could be removed. Without any further info about your situation, I'd have to guess that you have a high iron content in your water supply, and thus rust issues with your sinks, etc., unless you have a good iron reducing softener and the water to the refrig is not running through that softener. Again, without further info, I'm guessing the rust issue is at or below the water dispenser area. Keeping the water from spilling over the drip tray will help. You might try Wink rust remover, but do test it on an inconspicuous area first to make sure it will not adversely affect the finish in a visible area.

Scratches on stainles steel door


IF IT IS BRUSHED STAINLESS, AND THE SCRATCHES ARE REALLY BAD, YOU COULD TRY SOME STEEL WOOL TO SOFTEN THE SCRATCHES, BUT IT WILL BE A TRADE OFF OF MINIMIZING THE SCRATCHES AND CAUSING A SMEARED LOOK TO THE BRUSHED STAINLESS PATTERN.
