Question about Maytag MZD2766GES Side by Side Refrigerator
Hello, Refrigerator's outeskin Stainless Steel (brushed finish) shows rust. Is it really Stainless Steel or brushed steel. Called Maytag - since I have extended warranty, Maytag contact said they cover on mechanical problem not the cosmetic. let me know. Ketan.
Not actual stainless steel or the magnets wouldn't stick then all those frige magnet companies would go out of business. Maytag should make a cleaner/protector spray or something that will clean that up. Even the DIY stores like Home Depot or Lowes, etc. should have that type of cleaner. Naval Jelly can work but test in on a spot that won't show in case it stains the finish more than helps remove the rust. And yes, that would be cosmetic issue not a warranty item usually BUT read the extended warranty yourself to see if there is a loophole!

Tips for a great answer:
TO CLEAN MAYTAG STAINLESS STEEL REFRIGERATOR:
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.
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.
