I have an old white refrigerator that works fine, just looks awful. What can I do to the face to make it look nice. I have wooden oak kitchen cabinets and a tile floor.


Paint it with white enamel.
Enamel Paint finishes in high gloss if you want that sort of finish.
Always paint in a dust free invironment with plenty of ventiallation.
With the expensive cost of many home appliances, sometimes replacing an old refrigerator is out of the question, especially if it still works well.
This can be a problem if you've recently painted your kitchen or if you're just sick of looking at an old, outdated fridge.
Instead of learning to live with your boring or unattractive refrigerator, you can give it a bright new look with a few coats of paint.
Mix a few tablespoons of vinegar into a bucket of warm soapy water.
Use this mixture to clean the refrigerator.
Scrub away any grease, dirt or other grime with your soapy water and a stiff bristled scrub brush. Wipe the refrigerator dry with a towel when it is clean.

Use painter's tape to cover parts of the refrigerator you do not want to paint such as the handle or the grate at the bottom of the refrigerator.

Apply a coat of appliance paint to your refrigerator with a paint roller to prime the surface.
You can also purchase appliance paint in a spray can and use it to spray paint your refrigerator.


Sand the paint with an extra fine grit sanding sponge when it is completely dry.
Try to make the surface as smooth as possible and then wipe away any dust created with a clean towel.


Paint the refrigerator with an enamel paint tinted to the desired color and a paint roller.
You can use oil-based or latex-based enamel depending on your preferences.
Oil paints usually have a stronger odor than latex paints but they may last longer.

Apply a second coat of paint when the first coat is completely dry.

Sand the final coat of paint when it is dry with a wet extra fine sanding sponge.
Spray the refrigerator with water while you work to keep it damp and keep sanding until the paint is smooth and shiny.


Remove all of the painter's tape from your painted refrigerator.

Did a kitchen make-over and want to change our white fridge doors to black-can we spray paint them?


Yes, you can buy black appliance paint in a spray can. Do a good prep job first.

Rust on outside of freezer door -- is there an epoxy or white coating to cover over the rust?


You can clean off using a green scrubbing bad and some brasso all at wall mart then buy a can of spraypanit and spray it with food grade paint by Krylon paints also at wal mart. The paint will seal it and keep it from comming off.

Rust ruining door at lower corners of ice/water dispenser.


when you dispense ice or water, you are allowing the drip tray to overfill and the water builds underneath the tray until the water reaches the point were it will leak down the front of the door. the water will rust the panel beyond repair. you will have to replace the whole door at this point. hope this helps.

Zanussi freezone fridge freezer


well asuming you already thought to turn the thermostat down, i would check to see if you have a freon leak. with the fridge running, paint the coils with soapy water untill you see bubbles. mark that spot and dry off the area around it. generously apply electronics grade solder to the area where the leak is. (be sure you don't melt the copper and unplug the fridge first) then continue untill you have checked the entire length of coil. when all ieaks have been stoped recharge with recomended freon.

Can I get a set of black gaskets for my 15 year old Amana ?


Go to an auto supply store, one that the professional autobody guys use. They will have black paint that works on gaskets.

I have a red smeg fridge freezer with many scratches on the doors which i would like to repair if possible, someone has suggested tcut, but i'm a little apprehensive. Thanks


T Cut removes paint as it is polished on to a surface, it is really only suitable for removing oxidization from auto paints.

A better solution is to use a coloured surface polish also used on car paints this will not be abrasive and is available in red from auto stores

Bubbling paint Under the wter and ice despenser.


Hey! Ours did the same thing, they also sell small tube of appliance paint, it has a brush like finger nail polish...anyway I used very fine sand paper to clean up the area, and sanded the rust off that was under the bubbled paint, and then painted a thin layer of the paint..wait until dry and add another coat. I did this about 4 or 5 times and it looks great now! I bought the paint at Walmart next to the spray paints....

Paint had gone on surrounding the clock area


You can get spray paint in stores. Here is the kicker. Generally speaking Ovens and stoves have a baked on finnish. The problem is going to be getting a (And this is the key words) "High Heat" paint that matches the color of your stove. Most paint stores have "High Heat" in black red or silver to paint Bar B Q's with. However most do not have a multitude of colors that kitchen appliances come in. If your stove is one of those colors then problem solved go to the local paint store and pick it up. If not try looking at automotive paint stores for the similar color. In an automotive store you will look in the isle for Engine paint. If you can not find a paint that matches the color in High Heat, you could try an appliance epoxy. The thing is that is usually used on refridgerators, washers, dryers etc and not recomended for stoves. Try a small spot and monitor it. If it begins to peel my recomendation would be replace the stove as coatings beyond that will start to become more pricey than a new range.
