Cleaning recommendation table
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. 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 OFF and if needed remove any
knobs from the panel. Clean using hot, soapy water and a dishcloth. Be sure to
squeeze excess water from the dishcloth before wiping the control panel;
especially when wiping around the controls area. Excess water in or around the
controls may cause damage to the appliance. When rinsing, use clean water and a
dishcloth and be sure to squeeze excess water from dishcloth before wiping the
Clean heavier soils with hot, soapy water and a dishcloth. Rinse with clean water and
a cloth. Do not use cleaners with high concentrations of chlorides or
chlorine. Do not use harsh scrubbing cleaners. Only use kitchen cleaners that are
especially made for cleaning stainless steel. Always be sure to wipe the cleaners off
from the surface as bluish stains may occur during heating that cannot be removed.
Gentle scouring with a soapy non-abrasive 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 non-abrasive scouring pad.
Rinse and wipe dry with a clean cloth. Do not allow food spills with a high sugar or
acid content (milk, tomatoes, sauerkraut, fruit juices or pie filling) to remain on the
surface; they may cause a dull spot even after cleaning.
The oven interior is porcelain coated and is safe to clean using spray oven cleaners
following manufacturer's instructions. After cleaning, remove any oven cleaner or the
porcelain may become damaged during future heating. Do not spray oven cleaner on
any electrical controls or switches. Do not spray or allow oven cleaner to build up on
the oven temperature sensing bulb. Do not spray cleaner on oven door trim, door
gasket, plastic drawer glides, handles or any exterior surfaces of the range.
Clean any soils from the oven frame, the door liner outside the oven door gasket and
the small area at the front center of the oven bottom. Clean with hot, soapy water.

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 use spray oven cleaners on the cooktop. See Cleaning the cooktop and
