CLEANING THE BURNER HEADS

Lift the burner cap from the burner head. The surface
burner heads are secured to the cooktop and must be
cleaned in place.
For proper gas fl ow it may be necessary to clean the
burner heads and slots. To clean, fi rst use a clean DAMP
cloth to soak up any spills. Remove any food from
between the burner slots using a small nonabrasive brush
like a toothbrush and afterwards wipe using a damp
cloth. For stubborn soils located in the slots, use a small-
gauge wire or needle to clean.
Should you experience ignition problems it may be that
an ignition port hole is partially blocked with soil. With
the burner head in place, use a small wire gauge needle
or the end of a paper clip to clear the ignition port or
ports.
