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

    Rust from the inside out can't be fixed.

    This is a common problem with whirlpool refrigerators. They are poorly finished.

    i am having the same issue with a 6 year old Amana refrigerator, the bottom freezer door has dots of rust on the white textured front. sanding/repainting will probably look even more horrible. $300+ to replace the freezer door.

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!

Spray paint on metal door cracked in some spots. first coats were fine and then just a few place cracked. how can we fix this?


Repainting without adequate drying time will cause this. Make sure paint is dry. Use 180 grit sandpaper in swirling pattern to sand down the problem areas, idea is to feather edge the paint so you don't feel and ridges between the transition layers when you sweep your hand over them. Then prime the bare metal, then repaint entire door for best results.

The microwave oven coating is peeling and exposing rust spots. what can I do to fix this? Do I need a professional repair person?


No this is something you can repair yourself. Take sandpaper and gently rub rust spots until smooth. Then you need to get ceramic touch-up paint and repaint rust spots.

Get your refrigerator repainted before it is too late. It isn't that costly. Cracks may be due to rusting. Ask those mechanics about it when you give it for painting.

Microwave safety after repainting


Too generic...Did you use the high-temp appliance enamel recommended, or a spray...or worse?

Was the rust inside where it can contact food through the circulating air, or on the outer body?

First thought based on how I read the question: Never use that machine again...but that's based on the word "in" instead of "on my microwave".

If the rust was around the door frame, outside the seals, and you used an enamel (of course) then you may be OK...but...
Considering the fact that a cheap microwave is a drop in the bucket when compared to your family's health...Why risk it?

Rust on outside of freezer door -- is there an epoxy or white coating to cover over the rust?


You can clean off using a green scrubbing bad and some brasso all at wall mart then buy a can of spraypanit and spray it with food grade paint by Krylon paints also at wal mart. The paint will seal it and keep it from comming off.
