    Fixing dents in a fridge door?

    I just picked up a used but decent fridge to be sold with my house and it got the best of me. I am not used to having my butt whooped by an appliance but the day has finally come. The wheel dolly slid down and one door popped open and now has a couple dents.

    Any suggestions on how to fix it? I was only using it as a white appliance to match the others so I can list and sell the house but with dents it doesn't look good.

    Or, does this now become a garage fridge that goes with me when I sell and I just find another used fridge?

    check a price on a replacement panel for it, might be cheaper than trying to fix it.

    i believe dry ice takes small dents like hail out, makes the metal shrink up alot and pop the dent out
    They will not make or break you.
    They will make or break themselves.

    It's a decent sized, creased dent unfortunately. I didn't want to spend much money on this if I don't have to. I think I'm just SOL... friggin' luck.

    If it's creased it's gonna be tough. And most manufacturers sell the part as a whole door, not just the skin.

    Pretty tough to do considering most fridges have a textured finish.

    Call some used/2nd hand appliance joints and see if they have a used door they will sell you.
