Cleaning the Burner Caps
Should you ever need to remove the burner caps for cleaning, lift the burner cap off the burner head. Clean heavy soils
with an absorbent cloth. Rinse with a clean, damp cloth and immediately thoroughly dry including the bottom and inside of
the cap. DO NOT use harsh abrasive cleaners. They can scratch the porcelain on the cap. DO NOT clean burner caps in
IMPORTANT - When placing the burner caps on the cooktop, be sure the burner caps are seated firmly on top of burner
heads. Improper flame size and uneven heating may result when any surface burners are turned ON and the burner caps
are not seated correctly.
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 (except for the bridge burner, which is removable. See bridge burner assembly section for proper installation).
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 (see Fig. 1). 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.
