Cleaning Various Parts of Your Cooktop
Before cleaning any part of the cooktop, be sure all controls are turned OFF and the cooktop is COOL. Remove spillovers and
heavy soiling as soon as possible. Regular cleaning will reduce the number of major cleanings later.

How to Clean
Use hot, soapy water and a cloth. Dry with a clean cloth.
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 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.
Gentle scouring with a soapy nylon pad will remove most spots. Rinse with a 1:1 solution of
clean water and ammonia. Cover difficult spots with an ammonia soaked paper towel for
30 minutes, scrub with a nylon pad and rinse with clean water. Cleaners made especially
for stainless steel or chrome are recommended. Bluish stains on these materials are caused
by overheating and cannot be removed. Remove all cleaners or the finish may be damaged
during future heating. DO NOT use spray oven cleaners on the cooktop.
