Question about KitchenAid Refrigerators
Small rust marks appearing more & more on new stainless 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!!!

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.

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.

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.

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.
