Refrigerator Door Ding Repair?


I have a very new platinum french door refrigerator in which my kids created a "ding" in the front of the freezer. It is much like a door ding from a car door. Does anyone have any solutions on how they can possibly be removed/fixed ourselves?

It might be worth talking to one of those shops that do paintless sheet metal repair for cars.

Refrigerator Door Ding Repair?


Don't laugh, until after you have tried this: Take a regular hair dryer, put in on "High" and warm the area around the dent. Maybe a 4"-6" area, until it is as warm as the hair dryer can get it. THEN--have a wash cloth full of ice ready and slap it on the dent. Don't move it, leave it for maybe a minute. A better way is to use a can of automotive freon, but this requires a special fitting and hose. A lot of times this works on dents in auto's at the body shops. What have you got to lose? David
