To Clean the Burner Grates, Contoured Burner Pans, Burner Cap and Burner Base
The burner grates, contoured burner pans, burner caps and burner base should be routinely cleaned. Keeping the burner ports clean
will prevent improper ignition and an uneven flame. See instructions below.
To Clean the Burner Grates
Be sure burners and grates are cool before you place your hand, a pot holder,
cleaning cloths or other material on them. The cast iron burner grates can be washed
in hot soapy water. Rinse thoroughly and dry the grates with a cloth - don't put them
on the cooktop while still wet. Be sure the grates are positioned securely over the

To Clean the Burner Cap
Remove burner cap. Use soap-filled pad or mild abrasive cleanser to clean burner

all cleaners or the porcelain may become damaged during future heating.
To Clean the Removable Burner Base and Gas Opening (some models)
The ports (or slots) around the burner base must be routinely cleaned. Use a small-
gauge wire or needle to clean small slots or holes.
Note: If the electrode is damaged or broken, the surface burner will not light because
it will not spark. Manual lighting with a match is still possible.
For proper flow of gas and ignition of the burner - DO NOT ALLOW SPILLS, FOOD,
CLEANING AGENTS OR ANY OTHER MATERIAL TO ENTER THE GAS OPENING
TUBE. Gas must flow freely through the small hole in the brass orifice for the burners
to light properly. If the gas opening orifice becomes soiled or clogged, use a small-
gauge or needle to clean. ALWAYS keep the burner cap in place whenever a surface
burner is in use.

and burner base are properly aligned and leveled.
