Discolorations/stains on stainless steel refrigerator surface

I have an Amana side-by-side refrigerator with front door ice and water dispenser. Under the dispenser the stainless steels appears to have water droplet like dicolorations/stains that are a light than the finish. There is also a large streak/discoloration on the other door that is much lighter than the rest of the finish. I have tried the standard cleaners and these do not remove the marks/discolorations. As time goes by more of these imperfections are appearing.

Tried lots of suggestions to no avail. Tried a USED, dried out Scotch Brite Cook Top pad on the scrubber handle with Heavy Duty Fantastick sprayed on the pad. Scrubbed the drip marks at the bottom and wiped away to see if it was "scratching" or marri8ng the finish. Nope, but IT WAS taking the water marks off. So I did a bit more and checked again. Working great with no problems for the finish. Cleaned the whole watermark area. Rinsed of with wet cloth. Let it dry and then used my usual stainless cleaner, buffed to shine and walked away to post this. :> My refrig is an Aman too but I read other problem sites and it is common with stainless steel refrigs

No, the door is foamed together.
Remove small drip catch at bottom of dispenser area. Use silicone to seal recess along front edge and the two front corners. That should prevent water from getting under the door trim.

Leak in the water dispenser


Your water inlet valve on the back where the water supply comes in is probably leaking. disconnect the water line coming out of it and see if you have a slow drip. Try the dispenser to see if it's just drips after use.

Side by side ice maker tray has water stains


Use Lime Away. It helped with mine as the white spots were due to lime in the water. Be careful not to get the lime away on your marble, stainless steel sink, etc. as it will cause discoloration. I found out the hard way. Good luck.

Internal water dispenser stopped working


I lowered the temp on the freezer to 4 overnight, by morning water dispenser is working fine. I think that when we changed the temp to 7 (in order to make more ice ) it froze the water pipe going to the dispenser. I am going to keep both fridge and freezer at 5 ,and hope this will not happen again.

Spots on freezer door


Use a product like lime-away may help. These water spots are caused from calcium buildup. Lime-away or similar product will dissolve the calcium. Then use the stainless cleaner on it.
