Surface rust on GE Profile Stainless Steel Refrigerator

How can I remove this surface rust? I used Simple Green Stainless Steel spray cleaner on my NEW GE Profile French-door, bottom-freezer refrigerator. RUST SPOTS appeared shortly following application and the refrigerator looks all mottled and awful! When I rub with a paper towel a tiny amount of the rust rubs off. Water doesn't remove it, it appears to have a strong adhesion to the surface...help!

Also, I just heard a woman on HGTV say that olive oil on the stainless steel shines it up nicely. (Olive oil? Can't it be something cheaper?) It didn't remove the rust. Thank you for any and all advice you can offer.

I would try a product called Evapo-Rust! Evapo-Rust will remove the rust without damaging the stainless steel finish on your refrigerator. After you remove the rust you will then want to apply a rust inhibitor to keep it from coming back. You can go to a website call http://www.rustremover.biz to learn more about Evapo-Rust. You will also find that they sell a water based rust inhibitor that will work to keep the rust from flashing back for up to 6-months.

yes replace the seal, this type of spotting that forms as rust color occurs on "ferritic" stainless steel. Simply put there exists iron in the alloy and the surface needs to be pacified. Use DeBruce Polish to correct the problem. Non-toxic and odor-less containing NO ACID, this TRUE MULTI-SURFACE CLEANER is the best product for stainless steel AND glass/ceramic cook tops. Go to debrucepolish.com, you will be glad you did!

What's the best way to remove rust or corrosion from your knife?


Rust can be removed by using a good stainless steel rust remover that is organic and dos not harm the metal. Rust on stainless steel should never be scrapped off. This may cause scratches on the surface and thus spoil the look of the metal.

GE Profile Refrigerator model #TXP24PRYE with yellowed handles


Hi,

Spray with clorox all purpose cleaner and scrub it with hot or warm damp wash cloth.If the handles are plastic, Krylon makes an excellent line of spray paint products that bonds to plastic and adheres to the surface. Most spray paint products only coat the plastic and on a surface like a handle that will be used constantly, is easily scratched or peeled. The Krylon plastic paint bonds to the plastic surface and is very durable. The one down side is if you paint the handles and don't like the results, there is no going backwards, you can't remove the paint once it has cured.

Thanks.

Water marks on stainless profiles


I have used Bon Ami or Bar tenders Stainless steel cleaner (found in the section of Ajax or Comet Cleaner). Put some of the powder on soft cloth, wet it a little & scrub mark lightly; use clean rag w/water to clean off powder. Then use stainless steal spray cleaner (like the one found at Bath & Beyond) and rub in with soft cloth. I have found that the pull-out stainless steel cleaner wipes are too wet & just smear. Good luck

Rust stains appeared all over the outside of the stainless steel front of over, air outlet and splash back. What would have caused this and how can we fix this problem?


If I understand your question, your stainless steel surfaces have rusted. Correct?
Contrary to popular belief, stainless steel CAN rust under the right circumstances.

I won't go into what may have caused this problem, but I will hopefully help you solve it and prevent future rusting.

Usually it is only surface rust and not deep pitting of the steel.
Surface rust can usually be removed with a product like Soft Scrub cleanser or liquid Meguiar's Car Cleaner Wax.

Apply a small amount of either product to a clean cloth and rub over the rust until it is removed.
Wait until the product dries and buff with a clean cloth.
If you have a brushed stainless steel surface, you will want to rub in the same direction of the "grain".

One benefit of the wax is that it will protect the surface from future rusting.
If the rust cannot be removed in this manner, a more aggressive approach is required. Do NOT use the following procedure if you have a smooth stainless steel surface, only if you have the brushed surface..

Use a non-metallic scuff pad, such as a 3M Green Scouring Pad and rub in the direction of the brushed stainless steel grain.
This process should remove all surface rust and even some minor scratches. You can use the pad dry or better yet, with a liquid wax as a lubricant.

Never use steel wool!
It will only leave small particles of steel imbedded in the surface. The condition will look worse when the particles themselves rust!

I cannot be held responsible for any damages that may occur from the above procedure. But, it has worked fine for me whenever I have implimented it on dozens of similar surfaces.

Good Luck!
