SOURCE: Rusty dish rack

Clearly a design or manufacturing flaw. I have the same model and the rack is disintegrating after 6 years. I believe it is a manufacturing flaw. Our previous dishwasher rack lasted over 20 years in the same conditions. Same construction, vinyl covered steel. New upper and lower racks cost over 200.00 and there is no guarantee that this won't happen every six years. I recommend a new non-Maytag dishwasher as soon as you can. Meanwhile, limp along with the defective racks.

SOURCE: my microwave oven has are rust spots;can I paint over them?

Yes, you can paint over the spots and no, it's not dangerous. I'd let the paint thoroughly dry before using the oven -- it could otherwise cause paint to buckle/ripple/etc.

SOURCE: recentley purchased and installed Microwave

There are no repairs that I am aware of. The hole would have to be at least 1/4 inch to worry about microwave leakage. (see the size of the holes in the screen in the window, which safely blocks the microwaves from passing through the window?) My concern would be cleaning and possible rusting over time. If it is indeed new, I'd ask for a warranty service call, and see what they say. They may just be willing to exchange it for a different one.

What's the best way to protect water based enamel paint? I painting a night stand for my daughter and I don't want it to scratch easily. Oil based enamel is more durable but its not an option.

try painting it over with a 2 pack clear epoxy paint
2 pack epoxy paint is about the hardest surface you can get and the clear finish will show the original paint color through
or paint it again using the color in epoxy 2 pack paint
Talk with a professional paint supply shop

Painting the outer edges of the interior of a refrigerator..where the door seals meet the interior

Most likely not rust. You would see rust stains. IF you do repaint it, make sure that it is clean and dry. Oil or contaminates can cause the problem that you are describing.

The interior of my refrigerator has some rust stains that won't come out. What kind of white spray paint should I use to make the interior look better.

Try applying a paste of "Barkeepers Friend" instead, let it sit overnight. It will eliminate
rust stains and it works well on tubs also. If you must paint the racks, use Rustoleum
Appliance Epoxy. Hope this is helpful.

The enamel on the bottom of my oven has started to flake can i buy paint to repair it before it goes rusty

You can buy enamel paint , depends where the rust is, you can buy heat proof paint if it is inside the oven.
If it is outside then treat it with a rust inhibitng paint first.

The bottom of my microwave (under the wheels of the turntable) is starting to chip. can i repair this myself with high heat appliance enamel paint?

Probably, as long as it's not rusted all the way through.

You need to sand it to bare metal, then it will take paint.

I'd leave the door open and let it dry overnight.

The White enamel/paint in the interior of the microwave, by the base & back wall seem has peeled off - about 2 inches. I see unpainted metal & I am concerned. How do you fix this problem and is it...

The area will first have to be sanded smooth and cleaned and dried thoroughly.

If the cavity metal of the oven is cracked or split, you can use a small amount of steel-based epoxy such as JB-WELD to patch the crack or hole.

Once that dries thoroughly, you can sand it very smooth.

Then you can apply some high-temperature appliance paint, available from places like Wal-Mart, Lowe's or Builder's Square.
