Refridgerator-Rust on Front/Bottom

We have a 10 year old Frigidere Gallery side by side with an ice maker.

The appliance works wonderfully and looks new on the inside. Our concern is the front of the fridge/freezer has light rust marks. What causes this?

Are there companies that will spray paint fridge doors or any suggestions?

Thanks in advance!:shrug:

Rust on the outside of a refrigerator or freezer is often the result of door seal leakage and the resulting condensate that is formed on the outside when the cold air hits the moist outside air.

Yes, there are companies that specialize in appliance refinishing; you can also buy appliance-colored paints if you want to touch up the rusted areas yourself.
