How to Clean
Use hot, soapy water and a cloth. Dry with a clean cloth. Do not scour or use all-purpose
cleaners, ammonia, powdered cleaners or commercial oven cleaner. They can scratch
and discolor aluminum.
Painted and Plastic Parts,
Body Parts, Control Panel
and Decorative Trim
Using a soft cloth, clean with mild dish detergent and water or a 50/50 solution of vinegar
and water. Follow by rinsing the area with clean water; dry and polish with a soft cloth.
Glass cleaners may be used if sprayed on a soft cloth first. DO NOT spray liquids directly
on the control pad and display area. Do not use large amounts of water on the control
panel - excess water on the control area may cause damage to the appliance. Do not
use other liquid cleaners, abrasive cleaners, scouring pads, or paper towels - they will
damage the finish. Before cleaning the controlpanel,
turn all controls to OFF.
Steel (some models)
Oven Door, Control Panel
and Decorative Trim
Your appliance finish is made with Easy Care
Steel (some models).
Clean the stainless with warm soapy water using a clean sponge or cloth. Rinse with
clean water and dry with a soft clean cloth. DO NOT use ANY store bought cleaners
like Stainless Steel cleaners or any other types of cleaners containing any abrasive,
chlorides, chlorines or ammonia. It is recommended
to use mild dish soap and water
or a 50/50 solution of water and vinegar.
Broiler Pan and Insert (some
models), Door Liner, Body
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
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. Remove all cleaners or the porcelain may become damaged during
future heating. DO NOT use spray oven cleaners.
Oven racks may be removed or left in the oven during the Self-Clean cycle for
cleaning. If removed, clean by using a mild, abrasive cleaner following
instructions. Rinse with clean water and dry.
If the racks are cleaned in the Self-Clean cycle, their color will turn slightly blue and
the finish will be dull. After the Self-Clean cycle is complete, and the oven has
cooled, rub the sides of the racks with wax paper or a cloth containing a small
amount of salad oil (this will make the racks glide easier into the rack positions).
Use soap & water to thoroughly clean the top, sides and front of the oven door.
Rinse well. You may use a glass cleaner on the outside glass of the oven door. DO
NOT immerse the door in water. DO NOT spray or allow water or the glass
cleaner to enter the door vents. DO NOT use oven cleaners, cleaning powders or
any harsh abrasive cleaning materials on the outside of the oven door.
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 this gasket.
