Never use oven cleaners, chlorine bleach, ammonia or glass cleaners with ammonia. Note: Call
an authorized servicer if the glass-ceramic top should crack, break or if metal or aluminum foil
should melt on the cooktop.
• Allow the cooktop to cool before cleaning.
• General -- Clean cooktop after each use, or when needed, with a damp paper towel and Cooktop
Cleaning Creme* (Part No. 20000001)**. Then, buff with a clean dry cloth.
Note: Permanent stains will develop if soil is allowed to cook on by repeatedly using the cooktop when soiled.
• Heavy Soils or Metal Marks -- Dampen a "scratchless" or "never scratch" scrubber sponge. Apply
Cooktop Cleaning Creme* (Part No. 20000001)** and scrub to remove as much soil as possible. Apply a
thin layer of the creme over the soil, cover with a damp paper towel and let stand 30 to 45 minutes (2-3
hours for very heavy soil). Keep moist by covering the paper towel with plastic wrap. Scrub again, then
buff with a clean dry cloth.
Note: Only use a CLEAN, DAMP "scratchless" pad that is safe for non-stick cookware. The pattern and glass
will be damaged if the pad is not damp, if the pad is soiled, or if another type of pad is used.
• Burned-on or Crusty Soils -- Scrub with a "scratchless" or "never scratch" scouring pad and Cooktop
Cleaning Creme*.
Note: Hold a razor blade scraper at 30 ° angle and scrape any remaining soil. Then, clean as de-
scribed above. Do not use the razor blade for daily cleaning as it may wear the pattern on the glass.
• Melted Sugar or Plastic -- Immediately turn element to Low and scrape sugar or
plastic from hot surface to a cool area. Then turn element OFF and allow to cool. Clean
residue with razor blade scraper and Cooktop Cleaning Creme*.
