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!!!

    We complained about the same thing and eventually got new doors, the refused to install them so they are sitting in the basement in boxes still! Not happy at all!

SOURCE: 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.

SOURCE: Rust on Jenn Air Refrigerator Door at Water Dispenser

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.

SOURCE: 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.

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.

How do I clean, what appears to be, rust marks on my stainless steel refrigerator


DO NOT use anything but a dedicated stainless steel cleaner. Some types of Windex have ammonia as one of the ingredients and you can imagine what that will do to your stainless steel finish.

Rusting of the door on a stainless steel refrigerator


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 on an Audi TT


Audi give a 10 year anti corrosion warranty.
Take to dealer and get them to look at it. I took a 7 year old A4 down and they repainted the bootlid under warranty.

Stainless steel is rusty/blotchy


Jenn Air makes great products, don't blame them. Your type of stainless steel is a consumer grade that has less nickel-chromium in the mix making it affordable to the consumer. The surface needs to be "pacified", DeBruce Polish will REMOVE THE RUST and PACIFY the surface. We get Debruce Polish at debrucepolish.com.
