How to Fix a Dented Refrigerator Door


The refrigerator is one of the biggest investments you will make for your kitchen. Since refrigerators are usually in a central area, they are prone to dents and dings. When the refrigerator door has a dent, the whole appliance can look worn. When a dent isn’t taken care of immediately, it can become a real problem, evolving into a hole and leaking cold air. Fortunately, the repair is quick and easy.

Things You'll Need

  • Hair dryer Compressed air Rag All-purpose cleaner
  • Plug the electrical end of your hair dryer into an electrical socket close to the refrigerator. Turn the hair dryer on and turn it to the highest setting.

  • Turn the can of compressed air upside-down so the bottom is facing upward. Aim the compressed air nozzle directly at the refrigerator’s dent.

  • Spray down the dent and the surrounding area with the can of compressed air for 30 seconds. Wait for the dent to pop out.

  • Clean the surface of the former dent, using an all-purpose cleaner and a dishwashing rag.

Tips & Warnings

  • Always wear a pair of leather gloves when you are using a can of compressed air.
