Sounds like an older refrig, we call that "refrigerator cancer", its rusting from the inside out. your inner insultion has become saturated w/ moisture and is just rusting away now, you can try covering witha rustolem might buy you some time only other way is to replace entire door and thats a few hundred dollars

My 2006 F-150 FX4 Crew Cab has rust forming on bottom of 2nd doors both sides. Will Fords EXP plan cover this issue.

Hello, The rust needs to be through and through and they will cover it. So if the rust is only on the inside you can ask but it is up to the Dealer to decide. If the rust is on the inside and starting to appear on the outside, it is a through and through condition.

We have a Lincoln which rusted on the trunklid and drivers' door bottom. The Dealer replaced the door and trunklid and painted about 80% of the car including surface (one-sided) rust on the rocker panels. Everything blended in and the car was almost 7 years old. All Warranty coverage.

Our automatic ice dispenser hums but doesn't move ice through to be dispensed

Resolving the frost in shoot problem .
Remove the top freezer door hinge cover , and disconnect the plug there . This removes any power , going to the door . If no plug there , remove the bottom kick plate , by removing the screw on each side in the front , and disconnect the receptical from the wires comming from the bottom of the freezer door .
Remove the dispensor control board , by prying , or pulling , from the bottom of the board . Disconnect the 3 plugs to the board . You should now see the white dispensor cover , being held on by 4 screws . Remove these screws , and slide the cover out .
In the top right , inside the dispensor area , you will see a solenoid with a plunger , with the door flap arc , inserted into the plunger . Usually rust inhibits the movement of the plunger , keeping the door flap from closing completely .
Remove the 3 screws holding the plunger and solenoid ( part number WR62X10055 ) and replace . Cleaning will not help , due to rust will return .

Get your refrigerator repainted before it is too late. It isn't that costly. Cracks may be due to rusting. Ask those mechanics about it when you give it for painting.

Short circuit, looking for quote on repair price

That doesn't sound good. I am afraid that your vinals pannel has gotten wet enough to dammage it badly. unplug it and try to carefully open it to access the vinals board, when you have access use a blow dryer on low to try to dry the moisture off. when you are finished try to use it again. If the problem persist it may be beyond repair short of taking it to a repair shop and having the vinals replaced. It is about the same as getting your cell phone wet, the dammage can be sevier. As you probably know the warranty on a phone is covered for almost anything except water dammage in which case it is void. Good Luck

The chute for the ice despenser is freezing up and nothing will come out of the chute because it is frozen solid

You should remove the freezer upper door hinge cover , and disconnect the plug there . This removes power to the door .
Remove the dispensor board , by prying out from the bottom . After removing the board , disconnect the 3 plug-ins on the board itself .
Remove the 4 screws on the white dispensor cover , and slide out the cover .
At the top right , you will see a solenoid with a plunger which the door flap rocker , slips into . Usually , this plunger will rust , keeping the door flap from closing completely , therefore causing frost in the shoot where the ice comes out . 3 screws hold this solenoid and plunger in place . Part number for solenoid and plunger is WR62X10055 .
You cannot remove and clean , due to the rust already starting . It will happen again , unless you replace these parts .
To disconnect the flap , raise the flap and the plunger will slide off .
Re assemble in the reverse order .

Repainting doors on whirlpool white refrigerator

oowwwww!!! thats what we call in the refrig biz "refrig cancer" the door itself is actually rusting from the inside out. the older refrigs used fiberglass insulation inside the doors which has a tendency to hold moisture, and overthe years rusts through. the new door use blown-in poly styrene foam far less likey to hold moisture. That being said you could remove the door lightly sand and paint, can of krylon enamal aint should do it, at least for a little while anyway

My 10 year old Kenmore (Whirlpool) top load washer is rusting under the top cover. The entire cover from the bleach dispenser all around is rusted under the lid. Periodically, rust dislodges into the tub and stains whites. You would have to treat the rust under the lid. I decided to try, using "Rust-mort" rust treatment on a rag. The rust would all have to be wetted with the rustmort after some scrubbing with a scuff pad. I have not attempted this yet.
I went to OSH and checked lids on new top load washers. The lip on the cheaper models was not properly coated with paint, and I could feel the rough partially exposed metal, which would rust. The more expensive models had a smooth well coated lip on the underside of the cover. Hope this helps.

Rust on Jenn Air Refrigerator Door at Water Dispenser

You may end up respraying the door, but here goes.-

First mechanically remove as much of the rust as you can with an old screwdriver or similar scraper. Then use coarse emery cloth - 80 -120 grit untill all you're left with is shiny metal with rust pits.
You may need to go out further than you think - about 1" all round.

Then use a paint- on de-rusting fluid from vehicle products supplier. When all rust is black or dissapeared, use a zinc primer on all the bare metal. (this will stop it reacuring)

Then either spray the area with an "appliance white" aerosol or squirt it into the cap, and use a paintbrush.

If you are spraying it, open all house windows and doors, cut a mask from newspaper- then tape it to the fridge. Use blankets , plastic dustsheet or old sheets to protect things, and spray it from 12" in several very light coats.

When done, "polish" with T cut - which should remove the rust stain too.

Seal the area of the original leak with a white or clear silicone - and sort the original leak out.

If you polish the plastic with a silicone spray, water will tend to stay put rather than seep.
