Question about Maytag MGR6772 Gemini Gas Kitchen Range

Top of Gemini range

I have the stainless Gemini range and the top is black. I cannot get the top clean. It looks like the paint or the surface is "bubbled". I have tried EVERYTHING and it always looks like there is grease spatters on the top. I have all Maytag appliances and I am VERY disappointed with this stove. If I could, I would take it back...but I keep trying. I let the Maytag stove I had go. It was made in the late '50's, so I could 'update'. What a mistake!!!

    I'm having the same problem, we bought the house 1 year ago and the stove/oven came with it. I HATE the black stove top. I've tried everything to get that build up, bubbling look to go away. The best solution I've come up with for taking the smearing look away is to spray a mix of 1/2 white vinegar and 1/2 distilled water... Then buff with soft cloth.

    As for the crust around the burner, it's frustrating!!!

Hello patricialc,
Welcome,

You said, you have the stainless Gemini range and the top is black. I cannot get the top clean. It looks like the paint or the surface is "bubbled". I have tried EVERYTHING and it always looks like there is grease spatters on the top. I have all Maytag appliances and I am VERY disappointed with this stove. If I could, I would take it back...but I keep trying. I let the Maytag stove I had go. It was made in the late '50's, so I could 'update'. What a mistake!!!

The other option is to order a new glass top and have it replaced.
No abrasives!!

Let me know how you do.
Huuum

Using fusion sterling paint after few day got lots of tiny bubbles. Done tv unitand vedside unit she and after few days bubbles. Any ideas.


Did you do anything to prep the furniture before you painted it? Bubbles usually form because there was something on the painted surface that is giving off gas of some sort, possibly through some chemical reaction to something in the paint. Did you use a chemical to clean it or maybe didn't clean the painted surface before you painted it? It is possible that if you used a cleaner and didn't get the cleaner off the furniture before you painted it this is causing the bubbling. Either that or there was something on the surface that you didn't clean off before you painted it. The only way to get the bubbles out is to sand them out. Use a power sander with a fine sand paper and make sure you wipe the surface down with a wet cloth and let it dry before you paint it again.

How do I recoat my microwave?


I assume you want to paint it. Preparation is the key. Rustoleum has some pretty good products that look close to stainless steal. Clean the outside thoroughly. The paint will only stick well to metal surfaces. Plastics will tend to crack and peel. Tape and paper off all the parts of microwave not being painted. You will not want to get paint on labels, keypad, plastics or the door seal. Paint takes and hour to dry between coats. Practice with long strokes on something else first. Several thin coats is better than one thick one. Fumes can be strong. Outdoors without wind or a garage will be the best area to paint. Paint is oil based and you will need paint thinner( or WD-40 in a pinch ) for cleanup. I don't think painting would be wise inside the microwave. I painted my range hood, and I swear it looks like its stainless steel. I used the brushed nickel color. Good luck.

I want to paint epoxy primer on stainless steel plate, what is the preparation required on the substrate? Or I can directly paint the primer to the steel plate and expect no problem on adhesion


I would sand the entire surface before painting anything. Be sure to clean surface after sanding so not to get debris in paint (bumps). Stainless is hard so you may have to start with heavy grit sandpaper and work you way to a fine grit. Personally, I prefer sandblasting on metal surfaces, but I tend to like a flawless finish when I paint. Never the less, paint needs something to adhere to. Stainless is polished most usually so nothing will stick to it (hence the name stainless) by sanding it you create grooves in the surface for the paint to hold on to.

Same problem with grill bubbling what to do 2004 niss murano


I've decided to "black" mine out with a high gloss black. First I'm going to take the grill off & see if I can use airplane paint remover on a small area to remove the coating that is bubbling.

If so, then i'll primer the surface & repaint it as is since it should be smooth after the remover works and I scrape it down and wash it clean.

You could then leave it once the clearcoat is removed, re-coat it with clearcoat, or paint it any color, even to match. Automotive spray paint is available at auto-parts stores for this type of material, just get the right can of spray paint.

If I find the paint remover won't work without hurting the actual grill, I'll use some fine grit sandpaper and prep the surface, then primer it and paint it high gloss black. Color choice is optional of course!


Maybe this will help.

Where is the model number/ serial number located on the Maytag Gemini?


Open the door and look at the very bottom, front of range. If yours have a drawer it will be located behind the drawer right under the bake door, on the oven frame.

Hello My gemini top burners cycle on and off,


The burners are designed to cycle on and off, it is technology that helps to keep from burning food. If you are using the correct pan to burner size ratio and high setting on your burner, the water should boil in the normal time. Don't watch the pot (just kidding)
