Rust spots appearing on front of doors of kitchen (indoor) Kenmore refrigerator.

Hello there.
I am interested in finding out the cause for the rust spots appearing on the front of the doors of my Kenmore Frostless refrigerator. It's about 15 years old and appears to be working well otherwise. Last serviced about 2 years ago.
Please post and e-mail me (diaz7000@hotmail.com) your thoughts. Thank you. I've got a six-year old top-freezer Kenmore that's covered in rust spots on the doors (Model 106). It's never needed servicing and it still has the original light bulb! Could this be due to bad insulation? Really? Only 6 years old?

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

I have rust spots on textured refrigerator door I have no rust spots on the freezer door, what is the cause and how can I clean it? It is a wirlpool...


I do not yet know the cause, but I do know how to clean it up fairly well. You will need a rough surfaced rag or sponge, some additional clean rags, regular dishwashing liquid and baking soda. Dampen the rough surfaced sponge, cover with a layer of the liquid soap, then a layer of baking powder. With this, clean an area of the rust using a circular motion. You will need to rinse and reapply the cleaning agents often. You will see the brown rust coming off a little more with each cleaning. Use additional rags for rinsing the whole area. I spent an hour on the fridge side door before I was satisfied. The unit is in a vacation rental that probably is not always well temperature controlled. It is also a Whirlpool leather look textured door.

You can purchase a bottle of rust converter at any auto parts store, and then all you need to do is purchase appliance paint..

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


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.

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.
