Cleaning the Cooktop, Burner Heads, Caps & Grates
The cooktop is designed to make cleaning easier. Because the gas Burners are sealed, cleanups are easy when spillovers are
cleaned up immediately.
The cooktop, Burner Heads and Caps should be routinely cleaned. Keeping the Burner Head Ports clean will prevent improper
ignition and an uneven flame. Refer to the following instructions:
THE COOKTOP IS NOT REMOVABLE. Do not attempt to remove or lift the cooktop.
Use caution when replacing the Burner Caps so the Electrodes are not damaged. This may cause a delayed
ignition or prevent the burner from igniting.
Any additions, changes or conversions required in order for this appliance to perform satisfactorily must be
made by authorized servicer.

To Clean the surface Burner Caps and Burner Heads- Use a soap-filled scouring pad
or a mild abrasive cleanser to clean the surface Burner Caps and Burner Heads. The ports
(or slots) around the Burner Heads must be routinely cleaned. If residue still remains in
these ports, use a small-gauge wire or needle to clean the slots or holes. For proper flow
of gas and ignition of the burner—DO NOT ALLOW SPILLS, FOOD, CLEANING
AGENTS OR ANY OTHER MATERIAL TO ENTER THE GAS ORIFICE HOLDER
OPENING. ALWAYS keep the surface Burner Caps and Burner Heads in place whenever
the gas Burners are in use.
To Clean the Burner Grates- The Burner Grates are dishwasher safe and may be
cleaned in the dishwasher. Remove any excessive soils before placing in the dishwasher.
To Clean the Cooktop and contoured areas of the Cooktop- If a spill occurs on or in
the recessed or contoured areas, blot up spill with an absorbent cloth. Rinse with a clean,
damp cloth and wipe dry. Do not use harsh abrasive cleaners on the cooktop. They can
scratch the porcelain. Completely rinse any mild cleaners used from the surface or the
porcelain cooktop may become damaged during future heating. DO NOT use spray oven
cleaners on the cooktop.
