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.

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.

Microwave safety after repainting


Too generic...Did you use the high-temp appliance enamel recommended, or a spray...or worse?

Was the rust inside where it can contact food through the circulating air, or on the outer body?

First thought based on how I read the question: Never use that machine again...but that's based on the word "in" instead of "on my microwave".

If the rust was around the door frame, outside the seals, and you used an enamel (of course) then you may be OK...but...
Considering the fact that a cheap microwave is a drop in the bucket when compared to your family's health...Why risk it?

Arcing inside and there is now a small hole on the panel side. Is this fixable?


Hi,

It looks like there's lightning (arcing) inside my microwave When you see arcing inside your microwave, it's because of food or liquid left in the cavity or on the wave-guide cover:

  • If the wave guide has any burn spots, replace it and clean the unit well.

  • If the cavity has any burn spots, spot-sand it smooth and touch it up with microwave interior paint.

Note… If there are any burn holes in the cavity, don't use the unit-seek help from a qualified appliance repair technician.

Thanks for contacting Fixya

My microwave oven has are rust spots;can I paint over them?


Yes, you can paint over the spots and no, it's not dangerous. I'd let the paint thoroughly dry before using the oven -- it could otherwise cause paint to buckle/ripple/etc.

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.
