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.

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!!!

Rust spots appearing on the front doors of my Bosch refrigerator


Stainless steel does rust - or at least that is the theory.

There is in fact two types of stainless steel; the original categorised austenitic which is instantly recognised due to it being unable to attract a magnet due to the absence of iron. Austenitic is relatively expensive and difficult to work but adding iron in various quantities to the alloy produces a cheaper, lighter metal that looks good and is easier to work while still providing some resistance to corrosion. The more iron that is added to the ferritic type of stainless, the lighter, cheaper and easier it is to work but the corrosion resistance is substantially reduced.

Cars have been fitted with stainless steel exhaust systems of the ferritic type for many years and although they last a long time they soon show surface rust and sometimes will rust through.

I expect your fridge wipes are either acid or alkaline that are suitable only for austenitic and good grades of ferritic and Bosch have used a particularly poor grade of stainless. I expect fridge magnets stick very well...

Mild discolouration could be removed with a mild abrasive cleaner though that would tend to ruin the brushed finish. Clearly future cleaning should be carried out with a neutral ph cleaner and the surface protected with a hard wax polish.

I suggest you check the cleaning instructions in the Bosch instruction book. If you feel you have done nothing wrong you might be able to claim from your household insurer as accidental damage. It would be a good idea to inform the manufacturer of the cleaning wipes...

O.com How do I safely remove multiple rust marks from my stainless steel Frigidaire fridge with top and bottom doors?


You may have been victim of 'Stainless Steel Look' which isn't stainless but is polished steel with a thin lacquer clear-coat. Some Kenmore units were sold with that designation, yours may have carried that too.

You might try with rubber gloves and a disposable cloth moistened on one corner with Lime Away or an equivalent product and gently massage one area that isn't terribly visible.
After trying, wipe the area with clean water whether it did or didn't work. If it removed the rust, the metal probably isn't 'stainless.'

Hi!!
Sand down the rust, clean the area around it and apply a couple of coats of Appliance Paint of the same color, the more coats you apply, the better protection against rust you'll have. You can find that paint at any HomeDepot or most Hardware Stores. They have it in spray can and nail polish size to apply with a tiny brush.

Our Bosch stainless steel fridge is 2 or three years old. It has developed rust marks on the door. What can we do to correct this?


Fist call the company where you bought it from to see if there is a warrenty covering this, next you can use stainless steel whool pad like an sos pad to get it off with and getly rub it off then clean and dry and find some metal polish at an appliance shop to seal the stainless steel surface, if you need more help let me know.

Rust stains appeared all over the outside of the stainless steel front of over, air outlet and splash back. What would have caused this and how can we fix this problem?


If I understand your question, your stainless steel surfaces have rusted. Correct?
Contrary to popular belief, stainless steel CAN rust under the right circumstances.

I won't go into what may have caused this problem, but I will hopefully help you solve it and prevent future rusting.

Usually it is only surface rust and not deep pitting of the steel.
Surface rust can usually be removed with a product like Soft Scrub cleanser or liquid Meguiar's Car Cleaner Wax.

Apply a small amount of either product to a clean cloth and rub over the rust until it is removed.
Wait until the product dries and buff with a clean cloth.
If you have a brushed stainless steel surface, you will want to rub in the same direction of the "grain".

One benefit of the wax is that it will protect the surface from future rusting.
If the rust cannot be removed in this manner, a more aggressive approach is required. Do NOT use the following procedure if you have a smooth stainless steel surface, only if you have the brushed surface..

Use a non-metallic scuff pad, such as a 3M Green Scouring Pad and rub in the direction of the brushed stainless steel grain.
This process should remove all surface rust and even some minor scratches. You can use the pad dry or better yet, with a liquid wax as a lubricant.

Never use steel wool!
It will only leave small particles of steel imbedded in the surface. The condition will look worse when the particles themselves rust!

I cannot be held responsible for any damages that may occur from the above procedure. But, it has worked fine for me whenever I have implimented it on dozens of similar surfaces.

Good Luck!
