Remove Adhesive from Stainless-Steel Fridge Door

I have a Kenmore stainless-steel refrigerator, model #: 795.71013.011

I removed the labels on the front of the unit, but the adhesive remains.

How do I remove the adhesive without damaging the finish on the door?

I tried a cleaner made for this type of appliance, but it does not work.


Also, what type of finish is the stainless-steel on this unit? (I've seen some described as "brushed", "bright", "nickel", etc.)

You can use WD-40 or a product called GOO-GONE to remove the sticker/glue film from your stainless steel appliances without damaging them. Just spray the area and let it soak for a few minutes and then rub with an old cloth and it will eventually come off. It may take a few applications. Baby oil, mineral oil and vegetable oil will work as well. Do not use abrasive cleaners or chemicals on this finish. You will damage it. This is a Monochromatic stainless steel with a smooth finish. If you need further assistance, please reply to this thread. Thank you for using Manage My Life.
