General Cleaning

IMPORTANT: Before cleaning, make sure all controls are OFF and
the oven and cooktop are cool. Always follow label instructions
on cleaning products. For additional information, you can visit
the Frequently Asked Questions (FAQs) section of our website at
www.whirlpool.com. In Canada, reference the Customer Service
section at www.whirlpool.ca.
Soap, water, and a soft cloth or sponge are suggested first unless
otherwise noted.
EXTERIOR PORCELAIN ENAMEL SURFACES
(on some models)
Food spills containing acids, such as vinegar and tomato, should
be cleaned as soon as the entire range is cool. These spills may
affect the finish.
Cleaning Method:
Glass cleaner, mild liquid cleaner, or nonabrasive scrubbing pad:
Gently clean around the model and serial number plate
