Coldspot 106.61982101 rust bleeding through door

I have used both the white magic sponge and some CLR spray. The rust stains, scattered all over refrigeration door *not top freezer unit door, look much better. BUt how can I stop them from coming back, and how can I prevent further rust from developing?

SOURCE: Kenmore Coldspot w/Ice Maker Not Making Ice

hi LOP7,
In most cases you can easily solve this problem.
step one would be to make sure your freezer is getting cold enough. If you have icecream in your freezer is it frozen solid or is it soft. Most icemakers cycle around 0 degrees and if your freezer is not getting to 0 then it will not cycle and it will not make ice.
Step two would be to make sure you icemake is cycling. To do this simply lift the little shut off arm on your icemaker and wait about an hour then go back to the icemaker and drop the arm down. The icemaker should start going through a cycle. You should notice the arm slowly begin to raise and the ice dispencer fingers will begin to turn. Then you will hear it call for water. You may hear a humm.
If the freezer is cold enough and the icemaker is cycling that only leaves the inlet valve. replace the valve and enjoy the ice.
If the freezer is cold enought and the icemaker does not cycle, then you have a bad icemaker. Simply replace the icemaker and viola.
Third if the freezer is not cold enought 0 defrees. Then you may have a defrost problem. In this case post more info and I will be happy to help. Good luck [email protected]

SOURCE: Repainting doors on whirlpool white refrigerator

oowwwww!!! thats what we call in the refrig biz "refrig cancer" the door itself is actually rusting from the inside out. the older refrigs used fiberglass insulation inside the doors which has a tendency to hold moisture, and overthe years rusts through. the new door use blown-in poly styrene foam far less likey to hold moisture. That being said you could remove the door lightly sand and paint, can of krylon enamal aint should do it, at least for a little while anyway

SOURCE: New LG 8000 btu a/c units are rusting

I have a similar situation with 66 a/c units in my motel. The problem is the drain valve in the back of the unit (near the compressor) does not function properly. It is supposed to open when the water temp (laying in the bottom of the unit) gets to 50 degrees cusing the drain valve to open and let the water out. The problem is the water never reaches 50 degrees when the outside temperature is in the 80's. So the water sets in the units. The fan sprays the water over the fan motor, heating element and inside the chasis causing it to rust from the inside out. I have notified LG and they are investigating it...... Amana has the same problems with their units which use the same drain valve and they have removed the drain valve in several motels in the area.
I would suggest removing the drain valve or wedging something under the little round plate so the the unit drains. Also make sure your A/C is tilted properly so the water runs to the back of the unit and drains.

Testimonial: "My a/c is still under warranty so LG drilled a small hole in corner of the drain pan on the side where the water was spraying out. Works great now!"

Try applying a paste of "Barkeepers Friend" instead, let it sit overnight. It will eliminate
rust stains and it works well on tubs also. If you must paint the racks, use Rustoleum
Appliance Epoxy. Hope this is helpful.

How to use acid citric to clean a thermal 5lr boiler


Use CLR or white vinegar. If it is a plumbed in unit, there is usually a small bypass tank at the rear and a crossover valve where you put the descaler and then run the cycle. On others, you fill the water tank and run the descale program.

The amount of Citric Acid you would need is prohibitive, CLR is a better product.

CLR Calcium, Lime & Rust Remover is a powerful formula that quickly and easily dissolves and removes tough calcium and lime deposits as well as surface rust stains from bathtubs, toilet bowls, sinks, glass, chrome, fiberglass, stainless steel, most coffee makers, humidifiers, dishwashers, washing machines and ...

How can I clean stains in concrete?


It depends what the stain is. Concrete is porous and like clothing, some stains are permanently set. Detergents remove oils. Surfectants take it a step further. Acid removes scale. Cat litter can soak up standing oil. Once clean to satisfaction, seal the concrete to help prevent future staining.

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.

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.
