Care & Cleaning
How to Clean
Use hot, soapy water and a cloth. Dry with a clean cloth.
Using a soft cloth, clean with mild dish detergent and water or a 50/50 solution of vinegar
and water. Follow by rinsing the area with clean water; dry and polish with a soft cloth.
Glass cleaners may be used if sprayed on a soft cloth first. DO NOT spray liquids
directly on the control pad and display area. Do not use large amounts of water on the
control panel - excess water on the control area may cause damage to the appliance. Do
not use other liquid cleaners, abrasive cleaners, scouring pads, or some paper towels -
they will damage the finish.
Wipe the control panel clean after each use. Before cleaning the control panel, turn all
controls to OFF and remove the control knobs. To remove, pull each knob straight off the
shaft. Clean using hot, soapy water and a cloth. Be sure to squeeze excess water from
the cloth before wiping the panel; especially when wiping around the controls. Excess
water in or around the controls may cause damage to the appliance. To replace knobs
after cleaning, line up the flat sides of both the knob and the shaft; then push the knob
Clean stainless steel with hot, soapy water and a dishcloth. Rinse with clean water and
a cloth. Do not use cleaners with high concentrations of chlorides or chlorines. Do
not use harsh scrubbing cleaners. Only use kitchen cleaners that are especially made for
cleaning stainless steel. Always be sure to rinse the cleaners from the surface as bluish
stains may occur during heating that cannot be removed.
Gentle scouring with a soapy scouring pad will remove most spots. Rinse with a 1:1
solution of clear water and ammonia. If necessary, cover difficult spots with an ammonia-
soaked paper towel for 30 to 40 minutes. Rinse with clean water and a damp cloth, and
then scrub with a soap-filled scouring pad. Rinse and wipe dry with a clean cloth or paper
towel. Remove all cleaners or the porcelain may become damaged during future heating.
DO NOT use spray oven cleaners on the cooktop.
The holes in the burners of your cooktop must be kept clean at all times for proper ignition
and a complete, even flame. Clean the burner holes routinely with a small gauge wire or
needle and especially after bad spillovers which could clog these holes.
To remove and replace burner units per your model, see instructions under General
Cleaning. To clean, soak the burners in a 1:1 solution of ammonia and water for 30 to 40
minutes. For stubborn stains, scrub with soap and water or a mild abrasive cleanser and
damp cloth. Dry the burners thoroughly in a warm oven for 30 minutes. Then replace
them, making sure they are seated and level. DO NOT wash burner units in the
