How to Clean
Use hot, soapy water and a cloth. Dry with a clean cloth.
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 dishcloth.
Rinse with a clean water and a dishcloth. 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. Be sure to rinse the cleaners as bluish stains may
occur during heating and cannot de removed. To replace knobs after cleaning, line up the flat
sides of both the knob and the shaft; then push the knob into place.
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 paper towels - they will damage the finish. To remove control knobs, turn to the
OFF position; grasp firmly and pull straight off the shaft. To replace knobs after cleaning, line up
the flat sides of both the knob and the shaft; then push the knob into place.
Clean with hot, soapy water and dishcloth. Rinse with clean water and 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 off from the surface as bluish stains may occur during
heating that cannot be removed.
Remove racks. See "To remove and to replace an oven rack" under Oven vent(s) and racks.
Use a mild, abrasive cleaner, following manufacturer's instructions. Rinse with clean water and
dry. After cleaning the racks, rub the sides of the racks with wax paper or a cloth containing a
small amount of baby oil or salad oil (this will make the racks glide easier into the rack positions).
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. Remove all cleaners or the porcelain
may become damaged during future heating. DO NOT use spray oven cleaners on the cooktop.
Use soap & water to thoroughly clean the top, sides and front of the oven door. Rinse well. You
may use a glass cleaner on the outside glass of the oven door. DO NOT immerse the door in
water. DO NOT spray or allow water or the glass cleaner to enter the door vents. DO NOT
use oven cleaners, cleaning powders or any harsh abrasive cleaning materials on the outside
of the oven door.
DO NOT clean the oven door gasket. The oven door gasket is made of a woven material, on
Self-Cleaning models, which is essential for a good seal. Care should be taken not to rub,
damage or remove this gasket.
See Cleaning the Cooktop, Burner Caps, Burner Heads & Grates in the General Care &
Cleaning section for complete instructions.
