Removing outdoor acrylic paint from fiberglass screen vents

Over spray resulted in fiberglass covered eave vents under roof line being coated with 100% acrylic outdoor paint. Vent squares/holes are not totally closed but air flow into attic is reduced. Increased temperature in attic could cause a problem with Florida climate. Replacing the screening is not a good option because of its locations. What would be the best alternative to removing the dried paint so that the fiberglass screening will not get damaged? Thanks in advance, AL.

SOURCE: cold air from outside coming in house through vent

Sounds like your damper (flap) outside is working, and that's probably the first thing to check. Wind may be also pulling the damper open from time to time. Hopefully the pipe fitting is sealed, and the pipe is insulated anywhere it runs through any unheated portion of the house. Some amount of cold air getting in will be unavoidable. The best bet next might be to look over the two pages in the installation instructions that deal with outside venting. If you don't have the installation instructions, you can get a copy here: http://www.geappliances.com/service_and_support/literature/ Then if you don't notice any obvious problems with the installation, it may be time to contact the installer for their two cents.

You should be able to remove the flappers they are there for energy reasons. I cannot see how a little fresh air entering your house could be a problem. By the way I had the same problem in Ft laud with my hood. Just held the flapper up and used a touch of super glue to lock the shaft. Good luck

SOURCE: How to remove the vent above the door for cleaning

Sometimes they may be dirty and will respond to cleaning, but in some cases, the actual plastic may yellow and the only remedy is to replace it.

The manual just says to take the two screws out, but doesn't refer to their being anything unusual. I would assume they're small Philips.

But if you're unsure of what kind of tool to use, can you post a photo of the screw head and maybe we can tell.

We're happy to help and we appreciate your thoughtful rating of our answer.

SOURCE: Freezer running at 0 to

Sounds like a defrost problem. Check to see if there is any frost buildup in the back wall of the freezer. If so, it is not defrosting as it should.

  • possible causes:
  1. bad defrost timer
  2. bad defrost heater (in freezer)
  3. bad thermo switch in freezer
If you don’t know what these are then unplug the machine and let the ice melt in the freezer overnight with the door open. Then try it the next day, if is cooling fine then you need to have a service person replace one of the above items.
  • the fan could also be the problem, and like you said a visual inspection of the fan should clarify that. sometimes the plastic fan blade gets loose on the metal shaft of the fan motor and it will not turn very fast.

  • if you already checked this and think it is a different problem then let me know, i will help you figure it out.

Be sure the oven is unplugged.

There are two Phillips head screws on the very top of the outside of the cabinet above the vent.

When they're removed the vent grille just snaps out.

best option
get a quote from a car spray painter re-gel coat the roof

What Is Roof Restoration Coating?


I am currently obtaining information on roof paints and I can share what I have found out
roof restorers use a membrane paint rather than an ordinary acrylic paint or enamel paint as it is the most resilient paint for the application
IT is applied at a pressure of 3000 psi from a special gun and paint pump, cannot be rollered or brushed and goes on to a thickness of 150 microns ( around .120")
the cost is around $400.00 for 10 litres which covers around 10 sq meters ( 3ftx3ft)
acrylic can be sprayed or rollered or brushed on and is good for about 10-15 years depending on the roof to start with (thickness around .030" --same as car paint job)
costs around $180.00 for 15 lts and covers 14-16 sq meters
namel should be avoided as it does not have the capacity to expand or contract with temperature changes
professional roof restorers will repair any problems , clean the roof off and then apply the membrane paint as it gives a good quality result
other than that I would talk with paint suppliers as they have the same membrane paint that the professionals use and get ideas as to the way to go.

Spa bulges in one area what cause this and can it be fixed


Is this a Fiberglass or Acrylic Spa?
Or are you referring to a portable toy spa that is inflatable?

If the former, your shell surface is delaminating, from the rigid FiberGlass that was sprayed onto the acrylic or fiberglass shell to ridgidize it. What usually happens is "Air" is not completely removed during that spray process and over time, the acrylic will bubble due to the heat in the spa as the air expands. That Acrylic is barely paper thin when stretched out into the mold you sit in. An 8x8 sheet of acrylic is only 1/4" thick, then it is heated and placed over a tub "Mold" and then Vacuumed into what is your tubs shape that you enter into. You can imagine how thin it gets. When it goes through the ridgidizing process, All of the Air needs to be removed, sometimes it is not, and over the years it becomes evident that it wasn't.
What can you do? Well, besides that it is not very pleasing to look at, there is no problem or danger of any leaks, not yet anyway? You can break the bubbles out and find a supplier that sells acrylic repair kits in the color of your spa. You can google with the proper search terms & eventually find a kit. Maybe something like the link below shows...
Large Granite Spa Hot Tub Acrylic Repair Kit

If the latter, Sorry I don't know....

Good Luck

How can I deep-clean or spruce up the white Dangari resin arm chairs?


Try using Zep shower cleaner..Wet the chairs, spray it on and let it sit for ten minutes and wash it off with a pressure washer. Paint is not going to stick for very long on resin.

Someone spraypainted my car how do I remove it?


Depends on the paint.
Most of the time you can use rubbing or polishing compound to "rub" the spray paint off.
As for the sugar, if you have not cranked the engine yet, or turned on the key, you may be able to take the gas tank off and clean it out without having to flush the fuel lines.

Nutone bath fan how do you clean the vent


Usually the vent cover pulls straight down, and is held in place with 2 V-shaped metal spring wires.
Squeeze each spring wire together to release cover from ceiling box.
Use vacuum to clean vent fan housing. Some vent fans can be disassembled and motor housing removed for cleaning. Do NOT use water on electric motor. Simple vacuum, or dry toothbrush cleaning is good enough.
Spay tiny bit of WD40 on the fan motor shaft or add tiny dab of white grease if desired.
The plastic cover can be scrubbed with soap and water, rinse to remove soap residue, and when dry, paint with aerosol spray paint using 3-5 very light coats applied in 5 minute intervals.

How do i restore the surface of my outdoor ping pong table


Hi there,

Use painters tape to cover the white lines of your table tennis table.

Use sandpaper (150grit) to smooth the surface. This will level any bumps or scratches. Fill deep cracks with wood filler, let it dry and sand the table again.
Make sure that the table is clean before you begin the painting procedure.

Use chalkboard spray paint about 8 inches away from the table and spray each side. Allow 8 hours for the paint to dry then repeat with another coat. Next day, repeat the process so you have 3 layers of paint. Chalkboard spray paint helps the ball bounce to the correct height and speed.

Remove the painters tape after the last coat and allow the table to dry for at least 24 hours.
Hope this helps, vote me if so :)

Rust on the roof


Well, I guess u want to know how to fix it? Sand down the roof, if rust is bad, use a rough sandpaper to start, work your way down to fine, or better yet , extra fine. Clean off all dust, spray w/ primer, let dry (time needed , check can), spray light coats of paint, allowing each to dry before spraying the next. Too heavy a coating will make the paint run and look like cr_ap, so be patient and do several light coats for best results. Make sure u do it in a clean area (dust, bugs, dirt, rain, dew, will mess up the quality of the job, so do it when it's dry, not dusty, and make sure conditions remain that way til it dries. Good luck!
