Question about Frigidaire FRS26R4A Side by Side Refrigerator
WE ahve had our frig for 6 years with only minor normal problems. For the past year we have had problems with water leaking and getting trapped behind the paint causing it to bubble and chip away. Is there anything I can do to get rid of the paint and repaint the frig. It looks horrible.
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....

They do sell appliance paint in a spray can if you know how to handle a spray can not to leave runs and to spray it on in a few light coats!
You may want to take very fine steel wool like whats used four stripping furniture and antiques and rub off the loose paint first. I believe the steel wool thats very fine is 00 or 000 ! Ask the hard ware store or Home Dept which to use!!
I used to do this well.
The trick is as you spray it on do not stop the can suddenly at the end of the spray path.
Instead, when you reach the end of the spray path and before you return to spray in the other direction you turn the can in the direction you stroked and away from the fridge ( 90 degree turn)so you spray into the air rather than leaving a spray spot at the end of your stroke! But continue turning the can, then return and do the same in the opposite direction! Also do not hurry and try to rush applying the coats of paint . You may take 3 or 4 or more thin coats to do it with out dripping!
Let them dry a little in between as the cans directions will tell you!.
I used to practice on an old fender or my garage wall till I quickly perfected the stroke method!
Let me know if you do it and get nice results! You can continue to write me and ask me anything you want to know and as many times as you need! COOL!
