Easiest fix is to buy appliance touch up paint. Looks like a fingernail polish bottle. They'll have your shade. H/Depot, Lowe's, similar should carry.

The casing around the jet on the tub side is cracked and is causing water to leak on the outside of the tub. This has happened to three of the 10 jets. What can I do to fix this?


Cheap plastic fatigues with heat . Silicone will work but will not keep the crack from continuing. The fix depends upon what type of plastic you have . It is likely a polyester like fiberglass in which case you can use regular fiberglass to fixit . Rough up the outside with 80 grit , brush in fiberglass resin ( don't forget to mix in hardener) lay in glass material , repeat until built up . Repair the front with a good "gelcoat " repair kit which allows you to mix match color.. sand with 220 , then 600, then 800, then 1500, then 3000 , polish with automotive whit polishing compound , wax

Freezer fraame is hot


there is an energy saver switch on your refrigerator that turns a heater on to keep the case warm so that condensation doesn't form. if the humidity is low in your house you can set the switch to where it says save energy and it will turn the heaters off. if water starts appearing on your refrigerator - freezer then turn the switch back on.

My bathtub is from 1964. How do I know exactly what color Touch Up Glaze to order so I can fix some chips to the porcelain?


Hello mgold! Well, with anything of that age, you're not going to find an exact match to begin with, since the color would have "aged" from those decades of use, not to mention all the abrasives used when cleaning for the past 45 years!

I would believe that your tub is basically a white base color and then maybe get another slightly darker (antique white?) and try mixing up a small sample, by blending them together and applying them onto a small piece of metal and see how close you can get to your tub's current color.

Once you've got something that's reasonably close enough to not be overly obvious when applied to the chips in your tub.

I don't think you're going to be able to get a exact match without spending quite a bit of money to have a professional come out and make the repairs. Frankly, they'll likely attempt to do just what I've suggested, so I would try the repair yourself, as you can always call i the professional if you don't like the outcome, but you might find you can get pretty close and get a good repair at a bargain to boot!

I hope you find this Very Helpful and best regards!

New tub chipped


Most tub manufacturers sell a repair kit specifically for their brands, and usually are the best solution for repairing chips and dings. I would attempt to get their kit if it is available first. Normally, they are provided free of charge for damage discovered after installation, and at reasonable cost for owner inflicted damage. If such a kit is not available, you may have to "wing it"
Here are three possibilities, and I have used two of these.
If your tub is enamel on iron/steel, and you have the chipped out piece, you can reattach it with matching enamel (appliance) touch up paint as the adhesive, and it works as the crack filler as well. Reinstall the chip, and sand smooth after drying with auto wet sand paper, beginning with 800 grit and take it progressively to 1500/2000 grit, until the gloss matches the surrounding surface. This makes an invisible repair.
If the chip is in acrylic, you can repair with a fibreglass repair kit available at one of the home hardware type stores. Again, it is better if you can re use the chipped out piece. If it is available, mix the repair parts of the kit together and butter it into the groove (after trial fitting the chip). Place the chip back into place, and cover with wax paper. Weight the chip to keep it in place until it dries, and wet sand as before. This makes a "close to invisible" repair.
A better repair to acrylic can be made if you can grind some matching surface acrylic (gel coat) to dust and mix the dust with the fibreglass repair resin before re-installing the chipped piece. This makes a closer surface match, leaving the resin surrounding the chipped piece less noticeable. All of the materials used for this type of repair are compatable
If the chipped piece is not available, you can harvest a small piece from an out of view section to make the dust/filler and apply as a paste, filling the chipped area flush and sand smooth as before. This takes the artist's eye to get exactly right, but it can be done. If you cannot get a harvested piece from your own tub, you may be able to get a piece from the store where you bought the tub. If they have a damaged/returned tub, they will usually "donate" a small piece to help you out. I have seen returned tubs be sold for salvage prices.
Just as reference for future use, it is a good idea to cut a plywood cover for the tub, or to line it with cardboard when remodeling to prevent having these type of repirs added to your list of things to do. I learned this a while back, the hard way.
Best wishes. Hope that this was of some use to you.

We have a light bone shower enclosure that was


I have worked on vikrel tubs for the past 5 years and have yet seen a bone or any other color other than a light gray. Due to the tub making process, the tubs or showers are the color of the plastic use to make them. If you have a bone tub it has probably been refinished (factory? or by some company offering a bone vikrel tub. I would contact Kohler who makes the sterling line of tubs and ask their tech support about colorizing a vikrel tub. Look for a local and reliable tub repair company, they should be able to match the bone color. Ingredients in soaps and shampoo's tend to affect the refinish material.
Hope this helps you out.

Almond or Bisque Color the same??


Your range is almond. The AA at the end of the model number is the color code for almond. Paint on a range may be affected by high heat be sure to use one that is tolerant of high heat. Almond is more yellow and bisque is more white, not the same color.
