Should you ever need to remove the burner caps for cleaning lift the burner cap off the
burner head. Clean heavy soils with an absorbent cloth. Rinse with a clean, damp cloth
and immediately thoroughly dry including the bottom and inside of the cap. Do not use
harsh abrasive cleaners. They can scratch the porcelain on the cap. Do not clean burner
caps in dishwasher.
When placing the burner caps, see Important note below.
When placing the burner caps on the cooktop, be sure the burner caps are seated firmly on top of burner
heads. Improper flame size and uneven heating may result when any surface burners are turned ON and
the burner caps are not seated correctly.
Double ring burner cap
The glass in the double ring is designed to fit loosely. Clean with normal non abrasive glass
type cleaner and thoroughly dry before replacing.
Lift the burner cap from the burner head. The surface burner heads are secured to the
cooktop and must be cleaned in place.
For proper gas flow it may be necessary to clean the burner heads and slots. To clean, first
use a clean DAMP cloth to soak up any spills. Remove any food from between the burner
slots using a small nonabrasive brush like a toothbrush and afterwards wipe using a damp
cloth. For stubborn soils located in the slots, use a small-gauge wire or needle to clean.
Should you experience ignition problems it may be that an ignition port hole is partially
blocked with soil (see figs 1 & 2). With the burner head in place, use a small wire gauge
needle or the end of a paper clip to clear the ignition port or ports.
