SOURCE: What's the best way to protect water based enamel paint? I painting a night stand for my daughter and I don't want it to scratch easily. Oil based enamel is more durable but its not an option.

try painting it over with a 2 pack clear epoxy paint
2 pack epoxy paint is about the hardest surface you can get and the clear finish will show the original paint color through
or paint it again using the color in epoxy 2 pack paint

Can I repaint a steel enamel finished sink? Has been scratched by clumsy wife!!


Yes you can. they make several products for this at the harware stores. You said enamel but are you refering to porcelain? To do the repair you will need porcelain repair compound and some high-gloss, alkyd-base paint that matches the color of the porcelain. if it is simply enamel then just match the color or repaint the whole sink using enamled paint. what you have to watch and worry about is if the repaired section will be contantly wet, if water gets under the paint it will bubble and flake off and make a mess. So the answer is yes but it may not be worth the trouble.

I have some rust in my microwave oven. is there any paint i can use to fix this problem?


Yes there is microwave proof enamel paint, or so they sell it as.
Any enamel paint so long as it dries before use will do the job nicely.
Prepare the metalwork first before painting!

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.

The White enamel/paint in the interior of the microwave, by the base & back wall seem has peeled off - about 2 inches. I see unpainted metal & I am concerned. How do you fix this problem and is it...


The area will first have to be sanded smooth and cleaned and dried thoroughly.

If the cavity metal of the oven is cracked or split, you can use a small amount of steel-based epoxy such as JB-WELD to patch the crack or hole.

Once that dries thoroughly, you can sand it very smooth.

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

I have rust on the door. The unit is 13 years old. Does it make sense to sand and paint the door, replace the door, or replace the unit. If sand and paint, what type of primer and finish paint. If...


lots of questions that may be too difficult to help make a decion.

1) Depends on the degree of rust and whether it is inside or outside.
Outside is easier to deal with. Inside it would be subject to heat burning and odour as most are baked enamel finishes and are not paint at all, but a ceramic compund.
Outside can be rust removed which creates its own undercoat as it dries using the rust particles in an altered chemical state. An enamel paint is preferred or even a ceramic based compund.

replacingt the whole door may involve dollars to $100 unless you can find a second hand market for spares.

Frankly, because Microwaves have become so cheap now ( even secoid hand ones) you can pick them up from $50 to 200 depending on size and wattage. i would consider that it has had its time and replace the whole unit. After 13 years of service its time to retire it and move up. Newer ones are more power efficient and better sealed against radiation leaks than the older ones

Please rate my help++++Thanks for using FIXYA

The bottom of my microwave has gone rusty. Is it


You need to clean it, sand it shiny, then clean it squeaky again.

Then you can get high temperature appliance paint in spray or brush-on form from local appliance part stores or places like Wal-Mart and Lowe's.

I would suggest you let it dry overnight with the door open before using the oven.

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.
