How to Clean
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. Lightly spray the control
panel with a liquid cleaner. Wipe with a soft cloth or paper towel. DO NOT use abrasive
cleaners or scouring pads. These can permanently damage the control panel surface.
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

the door in water or clean the oven door gasket.
The oven gasket located on the inner frame of the door and visible when the door is
opened is essential for a good seal. Care should be taken not to rub, damage or
remove the gasket.
