Sealed surface burners and cooktop

Cleaning the surface burners

• You should routinely remove and clean the burn-
er caps. Always clean the burner caps after a
spillover. Keeping the burner caps clean prevents
improper ignition and an uneven flame.
• For the proper flow of gas and ignition of the
burner, DO NOT ALLOW SPILLS, FOOD,
CLEANING AGENTS, OR ANY OTHER MATERI-
AL TO ENTER THE GAS TUBE OPENING.
• Gas must flow freely through the gas tube
opening for the burner to light properly. You must
keep this area free of any soil and protect it from
boilovers or spillovers. ALWAYS keep the burner
cap in place whenever a surface burner is in use.
• Let the cooktop cool before cleaning.
• Do not use oven cleaners, bleach, or rust
removers.
• Do not obstruct the flow of combustion and
ventilation air.
• If the knobs are removed while cleaning, be care-
ful not to spill liquids through the holes in the
control area.
• Be careful not to allow moisture to collect in the
control area. Moisture can cause the ignitor
switches to fail.
Occasionally check the burner flames for proper
