Question and Answers

Q:

Stainless Steel mainteance

A:

Thank you for your question and I understand your concern.

I examined the specifications for your refrigerator, although it has a textured stainless steel finish that finish is not designed to resist finger prints and smudges, the Owner's manual recommends cleaning the surface using a soft cloth or sponge and mild detergent in warm water. Rinse the service with a clean soft cloth and warm water and dry immediately. Wipe in the direction of the grain to avoid cross grain scratching. This type of stainless steel finish will need be cleaned often to avoid finger prints and smudges. Since this is a textured finish, using stainless steel cleaner could be causing part of the problem. Textured means it has visible brushed grain. The Owner's manual does mention anything about using any stainless steel cleaner or polish. 

This type of refrigerator will need be cleaned often to avoid finger prints and smudges, you may considered exchanging the refrigerator for the type with a smudge resistance surface.

You may consider contacting Maytag at www.maytag.com or call 1-800-688-9900 and speaking to the manufacturer about your refrigerator.

I hope this is helpful. If I may be of further assistance as more details become available, please reply to this post.
