Cleaning the Cooktop
The cooktop is designed to make cleaning easier. Because the burners are sealed, cleanups are easy when spillovers are
cleaned up immediately. To clean, wipe with a clean, damp cloth and wipe dry.
THE COOKTOP IS NOT REMOVABLE. Do not attempt to remove or lift the cooktop.
Use caution when replacing the burner cap so the electrode is not damaged. This may cause a delayed ignition
or prevent the burner from igniting.

How to Clean
Use hot, soapy water and a cloth. Dry with a clean cloth.
For general cleaning, use hot, soapy water and a cloth. For more difficult soils and built-
up grease, apply a liquid detergent directly onto the soil. Leave on soil for 30 to 60
minutes. Rinse with a damp cloth and dry. DO NOT use abrasive cleaners on any of
these materials; they can scratch.
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(s) 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 clean water and ammonia. If necessary, cover difficult spots with an
ammonia-soaked paper towel for 30-40 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 furture heating. DO
NOT use spray oven cleaners on the range top.
Clean 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 off from the surface as bluish
stains may occur during heating that cannot be removed.
Remove racks. See "Removing and Replacing Oven Racks" under Before Setting
Oven Controls. 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 salad oil (this will make the racks glide
easier into the rack positions).
To clean oven door, wash with hot, soapy water and a clean cloth. DO NOT immerse
the door in water.
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 the gasket.
