How To Clean Stainless Steel Appliances


First do a quick wipe of the appliance with a gentle liquid dish detergent & water mix, dry with a clean towel. After washing you’ll likely see the smudges and marks still hanging in there. You can buff out each smudge with a lint-free towel and some pressure, but try one of these items instead to bring back the shine and quickly remove those pesky fingerprints and smudges:
  • Olive Oil (just a dab will do)
  • Mineral Oil (Baby Oil)–Just a dab will do
  • Club Soda (especially good for removing streaks and heat stains)
  • Rubbing Alcohol
  • Vinegar (great for polishing too)
Apply directly to a lint-free cloth and wipe down surface, follow up with a clean dry cloth to bring appliance to a mark-free shine.
  • Avoid using cleaners or cleaning tools that are abrasive since they can mar the surface (even some soft-scrubbing creams can cause damage).
  • When cleaning the surface, wipe down the appliances along the grain of the stainless steel for best results.
  • Don’t clean stainless steel with bleach (diluted or otherwise), this can damage the finish.
  • Don’t forget to open the refrigerator or oven door, you’ll likely see a mess of smudges along the edge of the door.

Dishwasher is leaking from the bottom of the door during wash cycle


Jonathan,
You more than likely need to replace the door gasket on your unit. From one website, I got the following part # for the tub gasket, DD62-00043A. Hope this helps!

Frigidaire Gallery Stainless Steel Appliance finish defect. The Smudge-Proof finish on my Frigidaire refrigerator began peeling off after I owned the product for 14 months. It appears to be a clearcoat...


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.

Fix scratches on stainless steel appliance


The professionals in order to remove the scratches from st. steel they use special metal wire meshes like soft scotch bride attached on special rotary milling machine. They brush it in the direction of the grooves on the st. steel surface. They start with a hard brush and they reduce the strength until they finalise it as the original finish. If it a brush surface this is more easy than a polished mirror surface. These procedure need experience and care so you will not end up with more damage than the original one.

The door is getting rusty. I believed that stainless steal didn't rust. Is there a way I can remove the spots?


Normally these appliances use brushed steel which gives a stainless steel look.

Get a magnet and run it on the sheet. If it sticks then it definitely is not stainless steel.
However, with wear and tear stainless steel surface does break down causing rust to start.

How to clean maytag stainless steel finish on appliances





HOW TO CLEAN MAYTAG STAINLESS STEEL REFRIGERATOR:





Do not use abrasive or harsh cleaners such as window sprays, scouring cleansers, flammable fluids, cleaning waxes, concentrated detergents, bleaches or cleansers containing petroleum products on plastic parts, interior and door liners, or gaskets. Do not use paper towels, scouring pads, or other harsh cleaning tools.




How do I clean and care my stainless steel surfaces such as refrigerator or any other stainless steel made appliance?

NOTE: Just because a cleaner is a liquid does not mean that it is nonabrasive. Many liquid cleaners designed to be gentle on tile and smooth surfaces still damage stainless steel.

> Avoid Citric acid

-it can discolors stainless steel. To avoid damage to the finish of your stainless steel appliance, do not allow these substances to remain on the steel finish:MUSTARD,TOMATO JUICE,MARINARA SAUCE,CITRUS-BASED SAUCES,CITRUS-BASED PRODUCTS.

If you want to clean safe and keep the sparkling steel you can purchase STAINLESS STEEL WIPES this wipes is ideal for cleaning food spills,grime and stains leaving surfaces shining like new. This wipes is for stainless parts only make it sure this stainless steel wipes to come into contact with any plastic parts.BUT THE SAFEST WAY TO CLEAN STAINLESS STEEL SURFACES IS TAP WATER WITH CLEAN WHITE CLOTH.

Refrigerator is not cooling


Have you cleaned the coils lately? If not, unplug the appliance after you've located the coils. They may be on the bottom or in back. Dust on the coils can hinder the cooling process. I purchased a good quality long handled brush from the Fuller company. Extend the brush carefully into the coil area, twirl and pull out. Do this for the entire coil area. You'll be amazed at the "fun stuff" you'll remove. You may also use the crevice tool of your vacuum cleaner. If your vacuum has a dusting brush that is small enough, that may be used as well. Also, pull the refrigerator out and vacuum the floor under it well . If the cooling doesn't improve, you will probably need to get a professional to check the refrigerant level.
