The door on this kitchen aid oven is locked. How can I unlock?
Answer Hello Beth. Use an ice pick and go through the door vent and pull over the lock latch. Then you can open the door on the unit. Once you get it open, you will need to see if the lock assembly is bad or the control board on the unit. You can test this with a multi-meter TJMA-DMT3. Here is a link on how to use a multi-meter. http://forum.appliancepartspros.com/oven-repair-including-ranges-cooktops/4810-how-check-continuity-ohmmeter.html
Can I safely paint a gas stove that has power burners? If so, what do you recommend. I want to change from white to black.
There is no paint that is sold that would be able to be put on a range. The range paint that is put on is a enamel baked on paint.
I want to repaint an older electric stove it. It is almond now. But I've heard the stove top gets to hot and paint won't stick. Is that true?
Answer Hello Holly! Yes, that is correct. You'll need to use an appliance high heat paint. Even then with the top being so close to the heat it will more than likely chip overtime. Sorry.
I want to change my white double oven to black. The glass doors are no longer available. Will this paint work?
Answer Hello Kelly! It's not recommend to spray paint or paint the outer door glass on the oven door. The paint won't hold up and will chip off due to heat. Sorry about that!
considering re painting black with white will it work. saw answer that said first coat vertical second horizontal then third coat more critical as it is finish coat--any suggestions to making this coat look better one direction spraying same as second same as first -other suggestions/
Answer Joe, Make sure you wash down the unit thoroughly, you may want to use a strong chemical cleaner, like TSP, especially around the handle areas. Make sure you use a medium grit sandpaper and "rough up" or dull the original finish, then wash it all down again. Use a "tack Wrag" and wipe down the unit just before you start to paint. It doesn't matter which direction you start at (Vertical or Horizontal) but you don't want to be too close to the cabinet, and you need to move relatively quick. You want to first coats to go on more like a "powder" coat" and wait 20 to 30 minutes to allow the paint to "flash" before you start the next coat. After a few days (3 to 5) then "hand wax and polish" the finish with car polish. Just take your time and be patient, color changes can be frustrating.
Is this black paint high gloss? How many cans to do a range hood 42" x 18"?
Answer Rich, the spray paint 285006 is listed as a superior black. We do not have the specs to verify if this paint is a flat black or glossy black. You will need approx. 2 cans to ensure the entire hood is coated properly. Thanks.
