Question about Ovens

Enamel chipping Hi, I did the mistake of leaving for a few minutes a cookware on the base of the oven (where the element is). Now the base enamel looks a little chipping/cracked but not much damaged though. The oven still looks to work correctly. I was just wondering if this could be toxic or not good to continue cooking in this oven? Thanks for your response!

Is the interior of the Neff B1691 oven made from vitreous enamel? The manual only describes it as 'enamel.' I'd like to use Oven Pride cleaner on it but it says to only leave the product on for two hours...


I have searched diligently and cannot find what the interior of the oven is made of. I suggest you open the owner's manual and find contact information for the manufacture. Call or email them for an answer.

I need to repair the enamel in the base of my oven. It has been removed in somne areas.


they make special appliance enamel touch up paint, which is good for a knick and a chip here and there. If its a bigger job than that, you may want to use a higher heat enamel. Ive used high heat engine enamel purchased at an auto parts store, which they formulate to work with the heat of car engines. It comes in a spray can, so it depends on the scope of the project/repair.

Melted aluminum foil on oven floor


Hi there,

I'm not up on my science, but..it's like welding, or more like soldering, chances are it's a high temp metallic enamel paint, and the two fused creating a mechanical bond. Your stove is cooked. You may be able to scuff the bottom and repaint it with a new coat of high temp enamel.
Just remove the racks, undo the clips that retain the heating element,(so you can lift it some, DO NOT try to remove it) tape off the bottom to create nice clean edges, using a piece of 80 grit sandpaper scuff the paint really good, lay down a coat of primer if the directions call for it, and follow the directions on the can. Don't worry about the clips, close the door and turn the stove on to the temperature specified on the can, and leave it on for the time stated. It will bake to a smooth glossy finish.
Most of the products I've used go up to 1000 degrees, and bake at 400 for 4 hours.

Good Luck!!

Thanks

Easy off ate all enamel off interior of oven


First off i must say that in your owners manuel it clearly states to not use any cleaning products inside the oven..

Second if the cleaner is now completely cleaned off then when put into the bake cycle it could possibly turn the cleaner into a toxic gas. I would not use the oven i would replace it.

Third having the enamel chip off is not a safety concern. it is merely cosmetic. however refer back to number 2.

How best to clean neff U1320 oven


The door itself is vitrous enamel, although I have not found it a problem if some gets on to it.
What you must ensure is that you do not put any on the element liners or covers on the sides. of the oven, otherwise it stains them.

Don't get it on any paint work either.
Plz rate my solution.
Thanks.

Eurolec oven fire - gases released made us sick


Good morning Folk!!
A toxicity doctor rang me to say that I have been exposed to vitreous enamel and galvanised metal.
The composition has zinc, chromium, silica so when the gas came off the oven interior, I had "gas fever, short term toxic, that would be eliminated from my body with no expected problems. Apparently welders have this all the time. It causes irritability, nausia and sleepiness. Australia has very poor metal detection in blood testing. It usually has to be sent to America.
I don't trust Eurolec, nor the company who made their baked enamel ovens - Technogas Italy, who now produce for Euro appliances.
I'm getting a new stove - ILEVE - which is a better quality gas stove all round.
Bye for now

Oven enamel chipping


The only solution I know of for the enamel coming off on these units is replacement of the unit, and since it is 4 years old you are going to have a tough time getting dacor to replace it or even give you a credit towards a new one. I have never actually seen the problem on a Dacor. Does the unit have a hidden lower bake element? If you cannot seee the elemnt its hidden, and you cannot put tin foil on the floor of any unit wiht a hidden bake element, as it will damage the finish. I know this isnt much help, but I work on Dacor products regularly as we are an authorized servicer, and I can't say I've ever seen a finish problem on one. Best bet at this point is to call Dacor and see if they will do anything about it. Good Luck!
