Question about Jenn-Air JCD2389G Side by Side Refrigerator
Hi, there. We have a relatively new (6 years old) Jenn Air side-by-side refrigerator/freezer. Rust has started forming at the water dispenser below the overflow collection "plate". A long vertical "snake like" streak of rust is going alway the down the door.
Any suggestions on how to remove the rust from the water dispenser and fix the rust streak down the door?
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.

I have a white side by side refrigerator that started forming small streaks of rust all over the refrigerator door. It is still in good running condition with almost spotless interior except for the exterior problem I stated. What shall I do to fix it?
