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. To remove control knobs, turn to the OFF position; grasp firmly and pull straight
off the shaft. To replace knobs after cleaning, line up the flat sides of both the knob and
the shaft; then push the knob into place.
Clean stainless steel with hot, soapy water and a dishcloth. Rinse with clean water and a
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 from the surface as bluish
stains may occur during heating that cannot be removed.
Surface elements can be unplugged and removed to make cleaning the drip bowls easier.
The surface elements clean themselves when they are turned on. Food spilled on a hot
element will burn off. Food spilled on a cold element can be cleaned with a damp cloth any
remaining
soil will burn off the next time element is used. NEVER IMMERSE A
SURFACE ELEMENT IN WATER. To remove surface element and drip bowls, follow the
instructionsunder General Cleaning.
To clean drip bowls, wash in hot, soapy water or in the dishwasher. Rinse and dry while
still warm. Hard-to-remove, burned-on soils can be removed by soaking the drip bowls for
about 20 minute in a slightly diluted liquid cleanser or solution made of equal parts
ammonia and water. A nylon scrubber may be used after soaking. DO NOT use abrasive
cleanser or steel wool, as they will scratch the surface. Always rinse with clean water and
polish, and dry with a soft cloth. To replace drip bowls and surface elements, follow the
instructionsunder General Cleaning.
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. Remove
all cleaners or the porcelain may become damaged during future heating. DO NOT use
spray oven cleaners on the cooktop.
