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 or dull the finish.
Wipe the control panel clean after each use. 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 using hot, soapy water and a cloth. Be sure
to 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 with hot, soapy water and a dishcloth. Rinse with clean water and 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.
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, and then scrub with a soap-filled scouring pad. Rinse
and wipe dry with a clean cloth or paper towel. Remove all cleaners or the
porcelain may become damaged during future heating. DO NOT use spray
oven cleaners on the cooktop.
The holes in the burners of your cooktop must be kept clean at all times for
proper ignition and a complete, even flame. Clean the burner holes routinely
with a small gauge wire or needle and especially after bad spillovers which
could clog these holes.
To remove and replace burner units per your model, see instructions under
General Cleaning. To clean, soak the burners in a 1:1 solution of ammonia
and water for 30 to 40 minutes. For stubborn stains, scrub with soap and water
or a mild abrasive cleanser and damp cloth. Dry the burners thoroughly in a
warm oven for 30 minutes. Then replace them, making sure they are seated
and level. DO NOT wash burner units in the dishwasher.
