How to Clean
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.
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 as instructed above. 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 burner grates, broiler pan and insert in the dishwasher and dry upon removal. If soils
are not removed, follow the cooktop cleaning instructions below.
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, 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.
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 manufacturer's
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.
