Granite rubbing against fridge

macvirtualasstJuly 14, 2012

Hi all,

Not sure what category this goes in... We have a stainless steel fridge with a no streak finish. It is a side by side fridge. The edge of the doors, when they are open, rub against the granite countertop and as a result a bit of the no streak finish has rubbed off, almost as if it has peeled away. Is there any way to fix this?

You can put clear bumpers on the granite like you would a wall corner, but there isn't any way to fix the fridge if it's one of those metal ones with a clear coat on top. Once that clear coat is damaged, it will continue to chip away.

This is why most people prefer actual stainless to any of the faux stainless. A scratch in stainless can be buffed out, and it doesn't really have a fingerprint issue if cared for with the correct products. Pedge furniture polish will keep the fingerprints away if you clean off all of the yucky oil based stainless products first.

Thanks Live Wire Oak... what you say is true. I found out the fridge is real stainless, but with the no fingerprint coating on it. Nothing I can do except buy new doors which is crazy for a 1/4" tear. We are very careful with it now. Bumpers on the corner were too bulky but we put a little clear plastic dot on the critical juncture and it seems to be working. Thanks so much...
