Rust on the door edge of my SS maytag Ice2O refrigerator?

HI, It appears that there is rust or something forming on the inside edge of both of my French Doors on my Maytag Ice2O refrigerator. The spots appear as "dashes" from the top of the door's inside edge to the bottom. Kind of strange.... I can scratch some of it off with my fingernail...
Any ideas on what could cause this? We've only had the refrigerator for 1 1/2 years....

    Thanks for your help! I wonder if this is covered on a warranty....

  • bigsky1978 Nov 17, 2008

    Thank you so very much! I will give the Maytag people a call. P.S. Aren't they the ones where the repair guys sit around with nothing to do because their appliances are so dependable????? Hmmmmm.....

Your problem is no doubt a bad door gasket which is not sealing. Water vapor from room air is seeping through and condensing on the door edges. A new gasket should be available from your local refigeration supplier, but they are very difficult to replace. Read all instructions carefully before starting, and store your perishables.

    Dear Sue... If the warranty is still in effect you should check with Maytag. Door gaskets normally last many years so if yours is leaking after 1 1/2 years, it may have been incorrectly installed.

Most likely not rust. You would see rust stains. IF you do repaint it, make sure that it is clean and dry. Oil or contaminates can cause the problem that you are describing.

Rust appearing on 10 month old refridgerator doors


How can I put this nicely.
TAKE IT BACK!!!!!! First moisture is forming where it shouldn't, air leak/door gasket not sealing, and second stainless doesn't rust. If rust is forming than it's of poor quality. More iron in it than steel. Isn't there atleast a one year warranty? Don't wait! Till it's too late. Complain NOW!!!

My 2006 F-150 FX4 Crew Cab has rust forming on bottom of 2nd doors both sides. Will Fords EXP plan cover this issue.


Hello, The rust needs to be through and through and they will cover it. So if the rust is only on the inside you can ask but it is up to the Dealer to decide. If the rust is on the inside and starting to appear on the outside, it is a through and through condition.

We have a Lincoln which rusted on the trunklid and drivers' door bottom. The Dealer replaced the door and trunklid and painted about 80% of the car including surface (one-sided) rust on the rocker panels. Everything blended in and the car was almost 7 years old. All Warranty coverage.

Rust spots appear on the doors and arount the ice


Hi; Yes I would say its covered under a warranty. Trying to get the manufacture to repair it for free maybe not. Thats a questionable area. I would argue that the painting process had a problem that day. But if no warranty open door and dry off really good then brush with a steel brush to bring up rust then spray or paint on a rust eliminator. After it dries You can call Your local paint store for some appliance epoxy paint. Do a smooth job from the begining and a good flat surface will be ready for Your door gaskets...alpharome416

Rust on Jenn Air Refrigerator Door at Water Dispenser


You may end up respraying the door, but here goes.-

First mechanically remove as much of the rust as you can with an old screwdriver or similar scraper. Then use coarse emery cloth - 80 -120 grit untill all you're left with is shiny metal with rust pits.
You may need to go out further than you think - about 1" all round.

Then use a paint- on de-rusting fluid from vehicle products supplier. When all rust is black or dissapeared, use a zinc primer on all the bare metal. (this will stop it reacuring)

Then either spray the area with an "appliance white" aerosol or squirt it into the cap, and use a paintbrush.

If you are spraying it, open all house windows and doors, cut a mask from newspaper- then tape it to the fridge. Use blankets , plastic dustsheet or old sheets to protect things, and spray it from 12" in several very light coats.

When done, "polish" with T cut - which should remove the rust stain too.

Seal the area of the original leak with a white or clear silicone - and sort the original leak out.

If you polish the plastic with a silicone spray, water will tend to stay put rather than seep.

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.
