Stainless steel oven finish peeling off


It is likely that the factory-installed clear plastic protective covering was not removed before the oven was placed into service.

Stainless Steel does not peel!

Ovens and other appliances with Stainless Steel finishes are made from solid sheets of the material. They are almost always sent from the factory with a protective plastic film on the finish.

Just find an edge of the appliance, and start peeling the protective film off. Pull it off slowly, as to not leave any possible residual glue or plastic on the appliance.

If the heat from the oven caused some of the plastic film to melt and it does not peel off, I would immediately call the store or dealer from which you purchased the oven and start hollering, as they did NOT properly prepare the item for sale (if it was delivered and installed).

If you purchased it in the crate/box, and installed it yourself, you must take responsibility for not having fully read the instructions before using the oven.

In that case, I would peel as much of the plastic off as is possible, and then use some LOW ODOR CLEANING SOLVENT ( or PAINT THINNER) to remove the rest, using ONLY a soft cotton towel to soak it and rub it with. Do NOT use anything abrasive or scratchy, or you will totally ruin the finish! Do NOT use the scrubber side of a sponge, or a Brillo pad, or Choreboy-type pad!

*** CAUTION!!! *** DANGER! *** The fumes and vapors from the solvent ARE EXPLOSIVE AND FLAMMABLE! DO NOT USE THE STOVE UNTIL THE VAPORS AND FUMES HAVE TOTALLY DISSIPATED!!! Open the doors or windows to the room for fresh air when you are using the solvent, and READ THE INSTRUCTIONS thoroughly!

All is not lost yet, but getting melted plastic off the stove will take some time and a very gentle touch. Be patient, and good luck.

How do I clean, what appears to be, rust marks on my stainless steel refrigerator


DO NOT use anything but a dedicated stainless steel cleaner. Some types of Windex have ammonia as one of the ingredients and you can imagine what that will do to your stainless steel finish.

Fix scratches on stainless steel appliance


The professionals in order to remove the scratches from st. steel they use special metal wire meshes like soft scotch bride attached on special rotary milling machine. They brush it in the direction of the grooves on the st. steel surface. They start with a hard brush and they reduce the strength until they finalise it as the original finish. If it a brush surface this is more easy than a polished mirror surface. These procedure need experience and care so you will not end up with more damage than the original one.

How do you get fine scratches of the stainless steel door?


Firstly remove the handle, find the "allen" screws at underside of handle ends. Start first with a coarse towel and "re-scratch" the area. If that was not enough becoming more aggressive, use much care/ gentle pressure- a 3m scotch brite #7447 "going with the grain", you in essence are removing those scratches with scratches. Use DeBruce Polish with the grain for rourine cleaning and touch-ups. We use DeBruce Polish on all of our stainless steel. Non-toxic, non-abrasive and odorless, DeBruce Polish also works on glass cook tops. We get DeBruce Polish at debrucepolish.com.

Chemical stains on the stainless steel fridge


If the damage is shallow, you can scrub off the top layer with Bar Keeper's Friend and damp sponge. (Don't worry - it only takes off a micro-layer). Rinse and dry. If the damage is gone, wipe with mineral oil. If it's still there, I would try a few more times before giving up.

Good luck!

SCRATCHED STAINLESS STEEL SINK


Have you tried a really fine steel wool? I don't know if this would work. I have stainless steel farmhouse sink, front exposed all stainless steel. My contractor scratched it up horribly when he was putting it into the kichen. he fixed it amazingly with a fine steel wool pad. I don't know if your scratch is too deep for that but it couldn't hurt. The scratches on our sink were surface but very noticeable. Hope this helps.
