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.

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
