Maintenance and Cleaning
Before any maintenance or cleaning can be carried out, you must DISCONNECT
the hob from the electricity supply.
The hob is best cleaned whilst it is still warm, as spillage can be removed more
easily than if it is left to cool.
This appliance cannot be cleaned with steam or with a steam cleaning machine.
The pan supports
To ensure a better cleaning, pan supports can be removed from the hob (Fig. 2).
Pay attention when placing the
pan supports back on their
position, in order to avoid
scratching the glass hob top.
The pan supports are not dishwasher
proof; they must be washed by hand.
Take care when drying them as the
enamelling process occasionally leaves
rough edges. If necessary, remove
stubborn stains using a paste cleaner.
After cleaning, make sure that the pan
supports are correctly positioned.
The hob top
Regularly wipe over the hob top using a soft clothwell wrung out in warm water to which
a little wasingup liquid has been added.
Avoid the use of thefollowing:
- household detergent and bleaches;
- impregnated pads unsuitable for non-sticksaucepans;
- steel wool pads;
- bath/sink stain removers.
If scratches or cracks are noticed, disconnect the appliance from the
electrical supply to avoid the risk of electric shock and call your nearest
Service Force Centre.
Keep all objects and materials which can melt away from the cooking surface,
e.g. plastics, aluminium foil.
