There are several brand of touch-up enamel paint for appliances. Krylon for example, it's carried by a wide variety of retailers such as Home Depot, K-Mart, Sears and Walmart.

You can also get it at store that specialize in paint like Sherwin Williams. They might also be able to give you the best match to your color. If not you can try appliance stores. They may be able to give you a good match. The only other option is to match it yourself. The best way to to that is to get some color card examples from a paint store or hardware like Home Depot and find the best match. Now get a list of the colors that they use to mix it. Ask if you can get a very small amount of the colors used in the mix and using trial and error mix it yourself.

You can also try mixing it to get your color using enamel auto touch-up paint.

There really is no source for old appliance touch-up paint so it will never be perfect but with a little trial and error you can get pretty close.
Hope this helps you out.







Prep before painting:

  • Sand the damaged area lightly with fine-grit sandpaper. Roughen the area to be painted and remove any rust, but avoid sanding the surrounding surface.

  • Clean the area thoroughly with a rag dampened with paint thinner. Let dry.
  • Paint over scratches with appliance touch-up paint, using the bottle's applicator brush or another fine-tip paintbrush. Let dry overnight.
There will be issues with areas that are exposed to high heat so be prepared to repeat when necessary.

How do I know if the enamel is coming off the bottom of my new oven only a day old


It would look like a chip came off the surface. The only way that can happen is if something hard hit the surface to make it chip off. It might be that something overflowed onto the surface and baked on it.

Touch up paint for martha stewart garden collection


Rustoleum makes the best color selection for outdoor use enamel. For most outdoor metal furniture I would recommend thinning with a lacquer thinner and applying to the chips with a brush. If you get a close match you can lightly frost it on. Do not put on heavy wet coats or it will look like a touch up.

I need to repair the enamel in the base of my oven. It has been removed in somne areas.


they make special appliance enamel touch up paint, which is good for a knick and a chip here and there. If its a bigger job than that, you may want to use a higher heat enamel. Ive used high heat engine enamel purchased at an auto parts store, which they formulate to work with the heat of car engines. It comes in a spray can, so it depends on the scope of the project/repair.

Computer wont boot after memory upgrade


when working on computers you have to be carefull to ground your self before touching the inside of them. when installing memory you dont need to unpluge everythinf just the main power cord on the back of it.the blinking green light means you have something no pluged in right,double check everything you unpluged make sure it back in the right areas.on memory the slots are mark 1,2,3,4
make sure if the memory is diffrent in speeds the lagger ons go first.the first to slots normally have to be the same speed and size ram.if that does not work let me know i can look into it for you.
