Question about Sears 61301 Gas Kitchen Range

1 Answer

Paint on stove top is coming off.

I use an inexpensive Galaxy stove supplied by my landlord. At first the paint started coming off of a small spot next to a back burner. Now it is coming off in several spots around that burner and has begun to come off of the other back burner. In addition, the spots have become larger with time. Why should this happen and what can be done about it?

With smaller spots you can use appliance touch up paint and it should hold paint down and keep spots from getting bigger. Depending on how old the range is your landlord might be able to order a new top. I would voice my concern to the landlord and see what they might be willing to do to appease your concerns.

Will not suck the paint just air is coming out

Hello I just saw this in my inbox, let me see if I can help you-
NOTE: Whenever you are going to spray with any HVLP or cup-gun
strain paint through either a strainer bag or an Automotive strainer cone to remove any kind of debris from the paint that can clog the delivery tube that sucks the paint up from the "cup" and into the fluid needle.
yes even though "Wagner" says the Flexio will spray un-thinned Latex-
However by thinning your paint 10% to 15% you will get better coverage and the paint will move through the gun better
If you have no paint coming out try adjusting the fluid material knob on top-

Also try holding a piece of card in front of the the Tip and try all your Adjustments and you should start seeing the paint spraying onto the piece of cardboard or wall.

Paint flaking on wood burner

even the best high temp paints don't last for ever
also if you didn't clean the surface well it harder to stick
there not much you can do, depending on the stove type you have it may be something you just have to live with, some stoves get hotter than the paint can handle but even the best high temp paints will peel and blister in time, one small it is sand and clean surface and use a very thin coat, this is one time more is NOT BETTER...less is better and will last longer

Landlord painted kitchen sing with enamel sink paint and now it is chipping off and looks terrible. How can it be fixed?

Jan 2013
Remove paint with stripper maybe, otherwise Replace sink is only solution.
The etching and paint process for applying coatings to sinks and tubs is temporary fix, and will only last a year or two.
Report problem to landlord since he may have gotten a warranty on paint product, but don't wait for a magic cure to appear, because this is not magic, it's a failed paint job and paint has to be removed or sink replaced.

Where do I find high temp paint to use on a gas stove?

Auto parts stores have manifold and engine paints for high temp use, or the hardware store has barbecue and wood stove paints, usually black. Your stove may have been enameled (Melted glass powder process, like ovens, old sinks and bathtubs).

Paint chipped off of Freon lines.

Refrigerant is not a paint removing chemical . But to check , use a spray bottle with about 1/4 liquid dishwashing soap to about 1 cup of water , and spray where the paint is coming off .

Paint had gone on surrounding the clock area

You can get spray paint in stores. Here is the kicker. Generally speaking Ovens and stoves have a baked on finnish. The problem is going to be getting a (And this is the key words) "High Heat" paint that matches the color of your stove. Most paint stores have "High Heat" in black red or silver to paint Bar B Q's with. However most do not have a multitude of colors that kitchen appliances come in. If your stove is one of those colors then problem solved go to the local paint store and pick it up. If not try looking at automotive paint stores for the similar color. In an automotive store you will look in the isle for Engine paint. If you can not find a paint that matches the color in High Heat, you could try an appliance epoxy. The thing is that is usually used on refridgerators, washers, dryers etc and not recomended for stoves. Try a small spot and monitor it. If it begins to peel my recomendation would be replace the stove as coatings beyond that will start to become more pricey than a new range.
