    Use coarse steel wool, then fine. Wipe down with alcohol and repaint with the appropriate stove paint.

    Is the rust on the hinge side of the door from water coming off the top as well?

    Yes the rust on the hinge is from water that dripped down.
    Thanks for the info everyone. I will post pics once I get the stove repainted.

    A wire wheel on a drill and some new paint will work wonders.

    I give the stove a good wash using TSP then I wait for it to dry then I wire wheel the entire stove then I hit the spots that have most rust with a palm sander with a higher to lighter grit sandpaper. Then I give it another good TSP bath, wash that off with warm water, allow it to dry, then paint using the high temp paint you roll on, not spray, this can be found at Lowes or Home Depot.

    Thanks for the recommendation about the roll on paint.

    Here is the semi final product. Need some touch ups on the side IMG_20130601_130836_456.jpg IMG_20130601_130847_979.jpg IMG_20130601_130925_807.jpg

    I like the spray on finish myself. But to each, their own. Looks nice either way.

    You will need to do a couple break in fires to bake the paint. This will take getting the stove over 500F. Do it on a cool summer evening when you can open all the windows and consider having a fan exhausting the smelly smoke.

    PS: What paint did you end up using?

    Looks like what I suggested, Rust-oleum high temp paint.
