If it is the plastic protective coating, it should have been removed after installation. if you scrape with sharp object you will damage stainless finish. good luck!

SOURCE: exterior finish on stainless steel model peeling

Just a thought. Our frigidaire stainless steel refrigerator came with a temorary protective film on the steel parts that we peeled off after it was installed. Is it possible you never removed your film when you got your refrigerator? That may be what is starting to peel off now. Again, just a thought, I could be wrong.

They are peeling inside. Only had 3 years. What do I do?


bakers use black steel trays in which to bake bread
they are only covered in butter to stop sticking so if you follow the same procedure it will be alright
the covering that is coming off is probably the non-stick teflon coating which medical evidence proves not to be good for us as it breaks down with heat and age and is basic carcinogenic in nature
Look at all your old non stick pans and ask yourself , where did all the covering go?

How do I recoat my microwave?


I assume you want to paint it. Preparation is the key. Rustoleum has some pretty good products that look close to stainless steal. Clean the outside thoroughly. The paint will only stick well to metal surfaces. Plastics will tend to crack and peel. Tape and paper off all the parts of microwave not being painted. You will not want to get paint on labels, keypad, plastics or the door seal. Paint takes and hour to dry between coats. Practice with long strokes on something else first. Several thin coats is better than one thick one. Fumes can be strong. Outdoors without wind or a garage will be the best area to paint. Paint is oil based and you will need paint thinner( or WD-40 in a pinch ) for cleanup. I don't think painting would be wise inside the microwave. I painted my range hood, and I swear it looks like its stainless steel. I used the brushed nickel color. Good luck.

Frigidaire Gallery & Professional appliances put a micro-coating over their brushed stainless to help prevent smudges and fingerprinting. However, if this coating has begun to peel off there isn't much you can do about it. You can order a new door for it for around $250-$400 depending on the door. Very rare for this to happen. If was a common problem, they wouldn't make it like this.

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.'

Terrible noise when fan comes on...


The fan is most likely hitting or scraping into something. Disconnect the power and open up the fan panel. Push the fan blade manually and see if it's hitting into any walls. If not it may be the vibrations from the motor. In this case you should tighten any bolts that aren't completely tightened

Mariannejac the trouble is that the part you are talking about comes complete. You may try using some clear double sided tape. That is how most of these are attached.
