SOURCE: Do Patton oil filled heaters have any teflon coating or teflon parts? Bought it 15 Years ago, deadly to birds.

I doubt that they have any Teflon in them, and it would certainly have burned off by now if it did.

Duponts original Teflon Treatment

I read about people having problems with "Slick 50" and other products containing Teflon. I wouldn't touch slick 50 myself.
However, the original "Teflon Treatment" created by Dupont
WORKED WONDERS on many combustion engines.

I first learned about it when working as a petrol engineer for Exxon at the refinery in the San Francisco Bay Area in 1969.
I worked on what was called a "hydrocracker" That is part of processing crude oil at extremely high temperatures and full of grit. There were two high powered jet engine type turbines to move the material through the pipeline. Only one was used at a time because they had to have their bearings exchanged every two weeks. One day the technician came by and said it was his last trip. I asked why and he said because the bearings are now coated with Teflon and will never need replacing again. I was "gobsmacked" and disbelieving. six months later I quit my job to return to University. I discovered that Dupont's Teflon was sold to an outfit that was advertising it as Teflon Treatment for combustion engines, manual gear boxes and transfer cases. I was sceptical, but followed the directions on a cheap can of it and poured it into my old lawn mower's oil tank per directions with the engine running. As I awaited the 30 minutes advised to keep it running so the Teflon was thoroughly dispersed and the unknown chemical that kept the Teflon in fluid form had fully evaporated leaving all metal surfaces coated. I noticed the engine reved up on its own and ran like new. The can said I would never have to change my oil or oil filter if I had changed the oil and filter first, which I had done. That lawn mower is working today and never had it's oil changed and using the same filter. I then started using it on many vehicles, school buses, charter buses, my 1973 Cadillac Eldorado Convertible, and others. I put over 300,000. miles on that Cadillac and it still runs great on less petrol and much more power and it hasn't had an oil change or new filer since 1982 when I inherited it. I recently checked the compression in the 501cc engine and found every one of the 8 cylinders had factory specks pressure in each one.
Unfortunately the product was no longer available. The people who make and sell Slick 50 had bought the patent.
Mixing straight Teflon into motor oil does not work well; that's why it gums up engines. The Teflon isn't in suspension (fluid form) as the original Teflon Treatment was, thus the gum. I know it won't work if poured into a cold engine and perhaps they have changed the formula to make it work better, but if you don't follow the directions on the container you won't get the results you are hoping for.
My Caddy will outrun anything on the highway and gets 4 miles per gallon more from the petrol. On a tour bus that used to only got 3 miles per gallon of gas, after the treatment it got 8 miles per gallon. The owner was thrilled and it is still in service some 30 years later; never having to be worked on. Never put Teflon treatment of any kind in an automatic shifting gear box. You'll have to buy a new one.

How to drain oil from engine. been in there for 1 year. can not remember. used 2 times, then just sitting.

Motor should have a small drain plug at base of motor. Take an empty container such as a antifreeze jug, cut out the top and use this a collection container. Use Teflon tape on plug end when reinstalling.

Teflon coating bubbling in spots

Sadly there's not much you can do here then. If it has started to bubble it only takes one swipe from a utensil to break it open and I had to get rid of my 12 year old tefal pot because of a very similar problem.
Teflon sprays exist on the market to spray light coatings on mechanics. However it is not fit for utensils or anything that may be consumed out of. You should just invest in a new set.
Please rate thanks.

Teflon peeling off inside pan and going into the food

Teflon is very dangerous. I discovered this when I got birds. Teflon is so deadly that if it is even slightly heated (by having a pan in the drawer below the stove) by having the oven on, it kills birds - immediately. It becomes airbourne and is that toxic. I know of so many examples of bird's dying from it. Can you imagine how tramatic it would be to be cooking and your bird drops dead. I had to get rid of all my pans because of them. And I'm glad for it. So it would be, not deadly, but not great to ingest for humans. Teflon is also in some heaters so its good to check that too.

Teflon finish is bubbling

unfortunately this is a common problem among these grills, your only option is to replace it unless you have an extended warranty... if you want to keep using it, you can use a scotchbrite or similar metal pad to get rid of most of the teflon coating. if you want to replace it because you love electric grilling and don't much like teflon flakes in your food, i would recommend that your next grill have stainless steel or cast iron grilling surfaces..

hope this helps,
