SOURCE: Rust spots appearing on front of doors of kitchen (indoor) Kenmore refrigerator.

its what we in the business call "refrigerator cancer" they are rusting form the inside out. there is not repairing them and not worth the cost of replacing, you can take them off and spray them you might get a little time outta them. reason it happens is the insulation used years ago was fiberglass and would trap moisture between door and liner, eventually rusting through.. new refrigs are insulated with blown in poly-styrene. they don't hold moisture.

SOURCE: 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.

Barmaster makes a stainless steal cleaner obtainable at a retail store like Wal Mart. Follow the cleaning instructions in that you must clean with the grain of the stainless steal surface.

SOURCE: Rust on the door edge of my SS maytag Ice2O refrigerator?

Your problem is no doubt a bad door gasket which is not sealing. Water vapor from room air is seeping through and condensing on the door edges. A new gasket should be available from your local refigeration supplier, but they are very difficult to replace. Read all instructions carefully before starting, and store your perishables.

This happens when the racks get too close to the evaporator. Or bottles. You can try to use hot water but usually you will need to buy new racks for the unit.

Painting the outer edges of the interior of a refrigerator..where the door seals meet the interior


Most likely not rust. You would see rust stains. IF you do repaint it, make sure that it is clean and dry. Oil or contaminates can cause the problem that you are describing.

My jenn air model # jrsi225 is VERY HOT between the side by side doors how can i fix this ?


Its only natural to feel hot on side doors of the refrigerator. There are heating element that responsible for heating the side doors. Without such heaters, side doors will get moist, wet to touch and then rust will eventually develop causing it to destroy or weaken the refrigerator body, if rust is not treated. You shouldn't worry about that cause that is not a problem.
Thanks for asking.

I have rust spots on textured refrigerator door I have no rust spots on the freezer door, what is the cause and how can I clean it? It is a wirlpool...


I do not yet know the cause, but I do know how to clean it up fairly well. You will need a rough surfaced rag or sponge, some additional clean rags, regular dishwashing liquid and baking soda. Dampen the rough surfaced sponge, cover with a layer of the liquid soap, then a layer of baking powder. With this, clean an area of the rust using a circular motion. You will need to rinse and reapply the cleaning agents often. You will see the brown rust coming off a little more with each cleaning. Use additional rags for rinsing the whole area. I spent an hour on the fridge side door before I was satisfied. The unit is in a vacation rental that probably is not always well temperature controlled. It is also a Whirlpool leather look textured door.

Rusting of the door on a stainless steel refrigerator


True stainless steel will not rust, but it can get rust stained, which could be removed. Without any further info about your situation, I'd have to guess that you have a high iron content in your water supply, and thus rust issues with your sinks, etc., unless you have a good iron reducing softener and the water to the refrig is not running through that softener. Again, without further info, I'm guessing the rust issue is at or below the water dispenser area. Keeping the water from spilling over the drip tray will help. You might try Wink rust remover, but do test it on an inconspicuous area first to make sure it will not adversely affect the finish in a visible area.
