How to Repair Chipped Enamel on an Appliance

Save

Through regular wear and tear, the enamel on any appliance can fall victim to surface chipping. Once an unsightly chip has materialized, you can complete damage control to make it appear less noticeable -- or possibly even invisible -- to the untrained eye. Use the right supplies to repair chipped enamel on an appliance and take your time to achieve results that are as close to professional grade as possible.

Things You'll Need

  • 120-grit sandpaper
  • Clean, lint-free cloth
  • Appliance touch-up paint
  • Fine emery cloth
  • Pick away any loose enamel flakes with your fingers before beginning. Sand the chipped enamel with a piece of 120-grit sandpaper, making sure to smooth out the rough edges. Wipe the area with a clean lint-free cloth after sanding to remove the residual dust.

  • Shake the bottle of appliance touch-up paint to mix the pigments. Unscrew the cap and pull the brush from the bottle. Make one or two brushstrokes on the opening of the bottle to rid the brush of excess paint.

  • Brush the paint onto the chipped area and allow the first coat to dry for the time recommended by the product instructions. Apply a second coat once the first coat is dry.
