I had a Williams Space Mission that someone had painted the entire cabinet
white. Upon inspection it appeared that the paint was latex based. A
couple of cans of "GOOF OFF" aerosol paint remover was purchased. Do not
use the liquid goof off as it is too hard to keep control of the quantity
applied. Move your machine out on the patio or in the back yard in the sun
and spray about a 12" area. Let sit for a minute or so and you will be
amazed at how the paint just peels off with a putty knife! Neutralize with
water. Latex paints will not adhere to the original oil-based paint. Do NOT
try this on newer decaled machines. This one had a very good paint job
underneath so I do not know why it was repainted. This will NOT work if the
cabinet was repainted with a oil-base paint.
