You can buy enamel paint , depends where the rust is, you can buy heat proof paint if it is inside the oven.
If it is outside then treat it with a rust inhibitng paint first.

I have burned on food around the burners of our gas stove. My mom says a oven cleaner with remove the paint. What should we use

It's enamel, not paint, so oven cleaner would be okay.This works, too: soaking a rag in ammonia and letting it sit there for a while to soften the goo. Then can use the plastic scrubby things, but the green ones or the Brillo pads will scratch the enamel. Rag and elbow grease also okay. Keep at it; it will polish off eventually.

Kenmore oven cleaning cycle has scorched paint on top panel

I would expect a standard appliance paint to scorch at the exhaust of the machine and would expect enamel paint at that point.

I have baked on aluminun foil on the bottom of my self clean oven did the cycle to self clean and the aluminum foil is still stuck on the bottom what can I do to remove it without ruining the surface

If the bottom of the oven is enamelled or has a pyrolytic self cleaning surface then you can use caustic soda to remove aluminium foil.

Many oven and hob cleaners contain caustic soda and those which do always advise that it's kept away from aluminium parts precisely because of it's effectiveness in turning aluminium into grey foamy goo!

If you're in doubt as to whether your oven floor is caustic soda resistant then try a small test patch first.

Please note that caustic soda is extremely corrosive so you'll need to keep your hands and arms covered and preferably use eye protection as well.

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.

Melted aluminum foil on oven floor

Hi there,

I'm not up on my science,'s like welding, or more like soldering, chances are it's a high temp metallic enamel paint, and the two fused creating a mechanical bond. Your stove is cooked. You may be able to scuff the bottom and repaint it with a new coat of high temp enamel.
Just remove the racks, undo the clips that retain the heating element,(so you can lift it some, DO NOT try to remove it) tape off the bottom to create nice clean edges, using a piece of 80 grit sandpaper scuff the paint really good, lay down a coat of primer if the directions call for it, and follow the directions on the can. Don't worry about the clips, close the door and turn the stove on to the temperature specified on the can, and leave it on for the time stated. It will bake to a smooth glossy finish.
Most of the products I've used go up to 1000 degrees, and bake at 400 for 4 hours.

Good Luck!!

How best to clean neff U1320 oven

The door itself is vitrous enamel, although I have not found it a problem if some gets on to it.
What you must ensure is that you do not put any on the element liners or covers on the sides. of the oven, otherwise it stains them.

Don't get it on any paint work either.
Plz rate my solution.
