Fingerprint stains on stainless steel fridge doors

I just purchased a floor model of a stainless steel refridgerator. There are "faded" fingerprint marks as well as a faded spot where the price decal was. How can I get these marks off, or how to get the spots darker to match the color of the stainless steel.

Remove discoloration from my stainless steel refridgerator


Use this suggestion with caution. Assuming it is real stainless steel (not a coated or faux finish) and you have already tried various cleaners without success.
Purchase Scotch-Brite pads for stainless steel (many automotive stores sell them for a few bucks) and lightly rub the area beng careful to ALWAYS RUB/POLISH IN A STRAIGHT LINE WITH THE "GRAIN" or brush marks to polish out the stain. Always test this on an inconspicuous area first. This also works well with stainless steel vent hoods and cook tops.

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.

Leveling a refridgerator


if not level you need to tip it back and unscrew or screw in the feet on it. use a 2ft level on top to be sure which way to go. if just the door, open door and there is a bracket in between the freezer and fridge and it should be adjustable a little bit. unscrew til lose adjust door to right spot and hold while tightening bolts. that should work. if the fridge door is on top and freezer is on bottom then adjust bracket screws on top of fridge.

If my Kitchen Aid KSF26C6XYY00 door is in fact made of stainless steel, why do fridge magnets stick to it? Ohter people I know that have stainless steel fridges say that the magnets do not stick to t


Stainless steel is a term for a family of high chromium steels, some of which do in fact stain, although they do not rust as ordinary steel does.

The more expensive 'austenitic' stainless is non-magnetic, but harder to work into product shapes. 'Martensitic' stainless is a little more prone to staining and corrosion, but easier to work with, and is magnetic. Then 'ferritic' stainless is even cheaper, but less corrosion proof, and is also magnetic.

So yes, many stainless steels are magnetic, and if the manufacturer has not used the very most corrosion proof but expensive grade, then you will see it in that way. I would not see much reason for a fridge door to be made from austenitic stainless.

How to clean stainless steel


You say your new oven...and DW have stains...I will assume (if that's OK) that you have a stainless steel oven...and are washing stainless steel in the DW...but you are having streaks and or white...spots or deposits...Sounds like hard water...you may try a localized..(just for the DW and kitchen sink area) filtration system...to reduce hardness of water...(is this well water)..if so you definitely need filtration...if you don't already have it.
Here are some issues and or cleaning techniques for stainless steel.

stainless steel is known for its ability to be a clean surface that resists corrosion and rust. Dirt, dust and grime, however, put stainless steel at risk for corrosion and rust. Luckily, stainless steel responds well to cleaning, never wearing out from excessive cleaning, as long as certain rules are followed. 1. Water and a cloth.
Routine cleaning can be accomplished by using warm water and a cloth. This is the least risky option For cleaning stainless steel. Dry with a towel or cloth to prevent water spots. Wipe in the directions of the polish lines.
2. Mild detergent, (dish washing liquid) and cloth.
For cleaning that needs more power, mild detergent and warm water can do a great job without damaging the stainless steel. Make sure you rinse the surface thoroughly to prevent staining and spotting. Towel dry to prevent water spots which can be caused by minerals in water.
3. Glass cleaner for fingerprints.
Fingerprints are one of the biggest complaints about stainless steel, but can be taken care by using glass cleaner or household ammonia. Rinse thoroughly and towel dry. There are some newer types of finishes for stainless steel that resist fingerprints, a must if your pint-sized helpers leave their mark on your stainless steel appliances.
4. stainless steel Cleaner.
If you’ve had staining or scratching, or need to polish your stainless steel, a stainless steel cleaner may be a good option. Some of these cleaners and polishes can help minimize scratching and remove stains. They also can polish stainless steel surfaces nicely. Read the directions on the stainless steel cleaner and test in an inconspicuous spot. Be sure to rinse thoroughly and towel dry.

If this does not help please clarify...with specific model #'s and walk me through (step by step) what the specific problem is and how you address it....Thank you and I hope this helps.............
Good Luck...........The Fang.

LOOSE DOOR HANDLE ON GE PROFILE ARCTICA STAINLESS STEEL REFRIDGERATOR


I may need to know your model # from the sticker inside the fridge to view a diagram but usually there is are small set screws (usually 2) on the handle which are allen head that can be tightened.  Look for this first and let me know if there are no set screws.  If this is your setup then I would appreciate a solved rating.
