Here is a solution from a house keeping site ..
http://housekeeping.about.com/od/ideasbysurface/f/brownstainless.htm

Cleaning stainless steel can sometimes seem tricky, but is a very resilient surface. When problems happen, it is best to start with the basics to help repair the surfaces.
Baking soda mixed with liquid dish soap can make a good paste to gently rub on stains. Be sure to rinse the stainless steel surface thoroughly, and towel dry. If the stains still remain you can try vinegar. Remember to thoroughly rinse and towel dry. If stains still remain I recommend trying a stainless steel cleaner and polisher. Barkeeper's Friend is a good powder formula that can clean without scratching. Be sure to follow the directions, rinse thoroughly, and towel dry. These methods should help remove the discolorations.

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.

Zap damage to stainless steel


You should try a citrus based stainless steel cleaning agent, this should take off the stain. Otherwise you can do a test on a concealed spot, stain it with Zap and then lightly brush over in straight lines with medium sandpaper in same direction as original. But try it on a concealed area first.

Discolorations/stains on stainless steel refrigerator surface


Tried lots of suggestions to no avail. Tried a USED, dried out Scotch Brite Cook Top pad on the scrubber handle with Heavy Duty Fantastick sprayed on the pad. Scrubbed the drip marks at the bottom and wiped away to see if it was "scratching" or marri8ng the finish. Nope, but IT WAS taking the water marks off. So I did a bit more and checked again. Working great with no problems for the finish. Cleaned the whole watermark area. Rinsed of with wet cloth. Let it dry and then used my usual stainless cleaner, buffed to shine and walked away to post this. :> My refrig is an Aman too but I read other problem sites and it is common with stainless steel refrigs

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!
