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 (some models), 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, activate Lockout
(on some models) and remove control knobs (on some models). Do not
use abrasive cleaners on any of these materials; they can scratch.
Clean using hot, soapy water and a dishcloth. Be sure to squeeze
excess water from dishcloth before wiping 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 control panel.
If your range finish is Easy Care™ Stainless Steel (some models),
clean the stainless with warm soapy water using a clean sponge or
cloth. Rinse with clean water and dry with a soft clean cloth. DO NOT
use ANY store bought cleaners like Stainless Steel cleaners or any other
types of cleaners containing any abrasive, chlorides, chlorines or
ammonia. It is recommended to use mild dish soap and water or a 50/
50 solution of water and vinegar.
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. Remove all cleaners or the porcelain may
become damaged during future heating.
Oven racks must be removed from the oven before starting
self-clean. Clean by using a mild, abrasive cleaner following
manufacturer's instructions. Rinse with clean water and dry.
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. On self-cleaning models the oven door
gasket is made of a woven material which is essential for a good seal.
Care should be taken not to rub, damage or remove this gasket.
