dented Stainless Steel Refrigerator
 
How do I repair a small dent in a stainless steel refrigerator door

Not likly it's ever going to perfect again but you can remove the panel and use a roller from the back side to try and press it out.
Sure would help if you would post a picture so we can see where it's dented.

Not sure we need a picture but what you have is rolled stainless and it is really fairly thin to start---especially if you were able to dent it unless you really bashed it hard with something. If you can take it off I guess it is worth trying to roll it from the back side with something heavy. I am not optimistic it will work. If the stainless veneer can be gotten to and removed to try and roll it? You might price what a replacement will cost if this really bothers you.

Of course the real bummer is since it is stainless you cannot even cover the ding with a high-tack and borderline repulsive or even provactive fine art frig magnet. Magnets will not stick. Maybe you can find electrostatic decals though? Tie in with the theme of your lawn ornaments?

I think it could be done but it takes some skill. You essentially heat and smooth out the back side with a burnishing tool. I would set up a time, have the door off and dismantled and have a autobody paintless dent guy do it if I was you. I've had some success with door dings on my cars and so far, one freezer door.
