SOURCE: On the inside of the lid the paint or enamel

Most of the time what appears to be paint pealing, on the inside of your grill lid, is actually soot from your LP gas and bad combustion. May need someone to provide a thorough clean of your burners and check that your orifice sizes are correct and clean(holes on back of valves).   If you can, convert your grill to NG.. that will almost always solve a sooting issue(it burns much cleaner than LP)!  Hope this gives you some answers?

SOURCE: new to spray painting and am spraying baked enamel paint

To fix this problem you need to turn up the pressure both at the wall(coming from the air compressor) and at the gun. I would suggest 10 more psi at the wall and 5 at the guns but you can play areound to find whats best for you.

I have painted and the paint will not dry, it feels dry but if i lay anything on it magazines, etc. it sticks.


You have not mentioned what kind of paint you have used, however, here are a few ideas.
We might accidentally hit on the one.
Some paints, such as latex or enamel, can do this if the first coat of paint is not completely "cured" before you add the second coat.
To be completely "cured", paint has to dry and harden for a set amount of time.
You also did not mention your location, but temperature & humidity can affect the drying time as well.
If the weather or the room is cold and/or damp, that can keep the paint from drying.
The colder and the damper, some paint will not "cure" at all!
If you used an automotive paint, properly mixed paint sometimes has "dryers" added to the paint to help it dry, but the same applies about the temperature and the humidity.
Automotive paint that is meant to be sprayed on cannot be brushed on, for the same reasons, it may not dry.
God bless your efforts.

How do I fix gloss paint that dried with multiple matte areas after second coat was applied? 1st coat went on fine and dried glossy.


the matte areas could be blushing from the paint
although the temp was 68 degrees it is the humidity in the air that causes the problem
when covering gloss with a second coat , it may be advisable to rough up the gloss coat first

Do need to thin testors gloss acrylic paint


No- It's best to use testors thinner they sell for there acrylic paint
as a rule of thumb use the the same brand thinners and reducers as the paint your spraying, in this case testors.

Paint will not dry


Could be the paint you're using was old, sat around too long and was not properly stirred, before applying? or did you apply multiple coats without waiting enough or too long in between? You will have to strip all the paint off using a chemical paint stripper. Then wash off all the stripped with the proper solvent, then wash off the solvent. Make sure the wood is totally clean. Then sand lightly to open the pours of the wood. Apply one coat of primer, let dry, then apply as many coats of paint as you want, just make sure its dry between each coat, etc..

I have an old white refrigerator that works fine, just looks awful. What can I do to the face to make it look nice. I have wooden oak kitchen cabinets and a tile floor.


Paint it with white enamel.
Enamel Paint finishes in high gloss if you want that sort of finish.
Always paint in a dust free invironment with plenty of ventiallation.
With the expensive cost of many home appliances, sometimes replacing an old refrigerator is out of the question, especially if it still works well.
This can be a problem if you've recently painted your kitchen or if you're just sick of looking at an old, outdated fridge.
Instead of learning to live with your boring or unattractive refrigerator, you can give it a bright new look with a few coats of paint.
Mix a few tablespoons of vinegar into a bucket of warm soapy water.
Use this mixture to clean the refrigerator.
Scrub away any grease, dirt or other grime with your soapy water and a stiff bristled scrub brush. Wipe the refrigerator dry with a towel when it is clean.

Use painter's tape to cover parts of the refrigerator you do not want to paint such as the handle or the grate at the bottom of the refrigerator.

Apply a coat of appliance paint to your refrigerator with a paint roller to prime the surface.
You can also purchase appliance paint in a spray can and use it to spray paint your refrigerator.


Sand the paint with an extra fine grit sanding sponge when it is completely dry.
Try to make the surface as smooth as possible and then wipe away any dust created with a clean towel.


Paint the refrigerator with an enamel paint tinted to the desired color and a paint roller.
You can use oil-based or latex-based enamel depending on your preferences.
Oil paints usually have a stronger odor than latex paints but they may last longer.

Apply a second coat of paint when the first coat is completely dry.

Sand the final coat of paint when it is dry with a wet extra fine sanding sponge.
Spray the refrigerator with water while you work to keep it damp and keep sanding until the paint is smooth and shiny.


Remove all of the painter's tape from your painted refrigerator.

Is a light coating of oil the only thing to use to return your gas grill exterior to a shinier black again? Was thinking that would make it sticky after it heats up.


A light coat of oil will bake on and create a brown varnished look that you will have one heck of a time getting it off. If the gas grill is painted... and not porcelin coated no amount of cleaning will bring back the shiny black if the pain has been faded by sunlight. The only thing that will bring back that sheen again is a "high temp" gloss enamel paint. (Clear coating is NOT recommended. post paint as it will also darken even if it is high temp)

To clean it use a product like Mr. Muscle Kitchen cleaner or similar product. Engine degreaser works too but will dull the paint. If you plan on cleaning for painting you can use engine degreaser. If not... stick with the Mr. Muscle kitchen cleaner. Just make sure to rinse thoroughly and let it dry and lightly sand / wipe before painting.

Thanks for choosing FixYa,

The inside of my micro wave has discolored and has some rust spots right through the paint. Can I use a high gloss enamel spray paint to cover this or do I need a special kind of paint for this...


Not regular enamel paint.

The area may first have to be sanded smooth, but it should at least be cleaned and dried thoroughly.


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

High-temperature appliance paint, available from places like Wal-Mart, Lowe's or Builder's Square.

It usually comes in either a small brush-on bottle, like nail polish, and a regular spray can.

PEELING PAINT INSIDE MICROWAVE/TOASTER OVEN


I do have the same problem, but I know they make microwave paint if you can get it from an appliance store or you can order through the web - BUT 2 sites I just looked at said a gloss enamel paint, such as that used to paint "model" toys works just as well. In either case: Smooth the old stuff off, sand lightly (you want no metal dust left -or- damaging any coating on the metal) just sand enough to make sure there's no flakes & it's smooth, then use a gloss enamel paint rather it's approved for microwaves or the Testor's kind.
NEXT -Make sure you DRY with Hairdryer to set the paint, and keep the heat to med or low, don't bubble or scorch your work!) and do not use the microwave for 24 hours!! Leave the door open while drying for several days afterwards if you can. Any fume smells can be absorbed by using -used- coffee grounds and leaving overnight. Google groups was one source the other was a repair listing forum.
