Dented my stainless frig, can I replace the skin?

I have a 5 year old Kitchen Aid KBLS22ETSS00 stainless frig, I upset a chair and dented the bottom freezer door. Is this something that I can get a replacement skin for and if so, can I do it myself?

In the following link the part you are looking for is 1B. The freezer door is replaced as a unit. The skin is not a replaceable part. The part number for the door is 67004784.

KITCHENAID Bottom-Mount Refrigerator Freezer door Parts | Model KBLS22ETSS00 | SearsPartsDirect

Many parts companies show the door as un-available but some do show it as available. Put the part number I left into your search engine like google and several companies will be listed. Shop around for a good price. I saw in the neighborhood of $350.

One other place to check....
WHIRLPOOL | KBRS22ETWH00 | 07 - FREEZER DOOR PARTS


If you do decide to order the door..... confirm that the part number they show is correct for your appliance.

How badly is it dented? Is it a gentle dished in dent or does it have a sharp crease look to it? If it's a gentle shaped dent you can try an automotive suction cup dent puller. You can also try heating the dent area with a hair dryer then rub an ice cube on the dent. The ice cube method has never worked for me but I'm dying for someone to report back that it has.

Its a gentle dent but not big enough for a suction cup. The metal obviously would be stretched but barely considered creased if at all. The dent is about 1.5" diameter.

I plan to try the upside down air duster trick tonight.
