Scratch on stainless steel Kenmore fridge

Hi - I have a very light scratch on the front of my Kenmore fridge - someone tried to fix by using a brillo pad - any suggestions for trying to fix? The scratch is not deep and the area that the brillo pad was used is fairly small. Can you help? Thanks!

Brillo a little harsh, finer steel wool would be better ive even used the scour side of the sponge, using wd40 as a "cutting oil" lightly go over scratched area. look close and follow the grain of the S/S. just likje wood S/S has a grain direction

Hi, I bought a Samsung RSH1NBRS fridge/freezer (stainless steel/?colour). Unfortunately, it has lots of deep scratch marks during its transport in a van. How can I reduce/remove these? Perhaps any form...


depending on the quality of stainless steel some professional metal workers can buff it but I would recommend against trying it yourself.

My houselady cleaned my fridge today with a stainless steel cleaner and now it looks like there is a blue residue on my fridge that will not come off. Is it ruined?


I am not exactly sure how to remedy your specific issue but I know of a site that sells decorative covers for your appliances. Check them out at www.applianceart.com These guys have covers for all occasions and even stainless steel. Hope this helps.

How do you get fine scratches of the stainless steel door?


Firstly remove the handle, find the "allen" screws at underside of handle ends. Start first with a coarse towel and "re-scratch" the area. If that was not enough becoming more aggressive, use much care/ gentle pressure- a 3m scotch brite #7447 "going with the grain", you in essence are removing those scratches with scratches. Use DeBruce Polish with the grain for rourine cleaning and touch-ups. We use DeBruce Polish on all of our stainless steel. Non-toxic, non-abrasive and odorless, DeBruce Polish also works on glass cook tops. We get DeBruce Polish at debrucepolish.com.

The controls on the front of the refrigerator are blinking and cycling through a demo mode. how do we make it stop?


I have the same fridge. Called Kenmore and they said they couldn't do anything unless I made a service call. I did not want to pay someone to push a few buttons and fix the problem. So in a desperate attempt to not have to pay for a service call, I turned off all the power in the kitchen, for 30 seconds and turned it back on and the demo mode was over. So, you may just want to try that.

Scratches on stainles steel door


IF IT IS BRUSHED STAINLESS, AND THE SCRATCHES ARE REALLY BAD, YOU COULD TRY SOME STEEL WOOL TO SOFTEN THE SCRATCHES, BUT IT WILL BE A TRADE OFF OF MINIMIZING THE SCRATCHES AND CAUSING A SMEARED LOOK TO THE BRUSHED STAINLESS PATTERN.

Repair scratches on black door front


Mr....other than repainting, the only suggestion I have is one of those scratch repair kits that they sell at Pep Boys. The finish materials...paints...not stainless...are about the same as used on cars. Use a soft lambswool bonnet buffer and go slow.

If it is stainless...use 00 steel wool in a one directional sweep with a little bit of light oil.

good luck, sir.
