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 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.
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 as instructed above. 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 into place.
Clean burner grates, broiler pan and insert in the dishwasher and dry upon removal. If soils
are not removed, follow the cooktop cleaning instructions below.
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, 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.
Your range finish is may be made with Easy Care™ Stainless Steel (some models).
Clean the stainless with warm soapy water using a clean sponge or cloth. Rinse with
clean water and dry with a soft clean cloth. DO NOT use ANY store bought cleaners
like Stainless Steel cleaners or any other types of cleaners containing any abrasive,
chlorides, chlorines or ammonia. It is recommended to use mild dish soap and water
or a 50/50 solution of water and vinegar.
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).
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.
