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.

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!!!

Go to www.applianceart.com -- These guys specialize in refacing your appliances. Their motto is Don't replace your existing working appliances -- Reface them. They offer magnetic and vinyl options that will fit over the existing surface. I believe the vinyl option will work best for you.
They have solid colors, designs, textures and even stainless steel options.
Worth checking out.

The doors of my KitchenAid Superba side-by-side refrigerator are suddenly rusting ! What can I do??


Go to www.applianceart.com and get a refrigerator cover.
They have magnetic and vinyl options. I believe the vinyl option will work best for you because it will protect the surface and cover the existing rust.
These guys have lots of options available from solid colors to designs from artists and even stainless steel.
Hope this helps.

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.

Rust


assuming that this is not stainless steel model, for that shouldnt be rusting. but that being said if you look closly at the underside of the facade surrounding hte dispensor youll see 2 little slits approx. an inch in from either side along the bottom, gently pry off with a screwdriver from theses points,( should twist off and lift up, to reinstall simply "hang " on top clips and snap back down into positon.
