Stainless steel cleaner damage to lacquered finish?

Someone used a stainless steel cleaner on the lacquered fridge door of my AEG 70348 KG. I just use soapy water. Now I can see run marks that won't come out but they say that they have used this cleaner on their own appliance with the same finish for 2 years without any problems. Have they caused a problem and are they telling the truth?

Most stainless products don't have a lacquer coating. That's why stainless is so nice. Go over it lightly with a soft scouring pad like scotch brite to remove the marks. Just follow the grain.

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.

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.'

Strictly commercial properties, elevators escalators etc. I've performed these services for 30 years. As a Master Finisher I developed DeBruce Polish, and still perform metal restoration personally.

Finish on "stainless steel" door is deteriorating


Refrigerator was sold as 'stainless steel', but is not, a magnet won't stick to it.
There are many different alloys that are called 'stainless' steel but all of them have some chrome, some nickel and some steel. Depending on the strength of the magnet and the specific alloy, it may or may not adhere. Generally, the higher chrome and nickel content, the less magnetic it will be.
I think that the brushed surface of your fridge was coated with a kind of clear-coat to prevent fingerprints from adhereing to the brushed surface and that clear-coat is now missing in the areas of concern.
The only cure for tha would be the wholesale removal of the doors and the remaining clear finish and then respraying it with a quality clear finsh.
Ain't progress grand?
We considered all stainless stuff for our new home a couple of years ago, decided we liked black better and now hate that too.

Chemical stains on the stainless steel fridge


If the damage is shallow, you can scrub off the top layer with Bar Keeper's Friend and damp sponge. (Don't worry - it only takes off a micro-layer). Rinse and dry. If the damage is gone, wipe with mineral oil. If it's still there, I would try a few more times before giving up.

Good luck!

Stainless steel finish on Liebherr fridge


if you have scratched or damaged the surface, you can get a stainless steel foil product to cover your refrigerator from www.applianceart.com. If its not that bad, make sure you are using a stainless steel cleaner after you have washed it with a regular cleaner.
