CLEANING AND MAINTENANCE

Important: When cleaning the cooker, do not shift it beyond the length
of the tube.
Disconnect the appliance from the power supply before carrying out any
cleaning operation.
• Clean using a cloth moistened with warm soapy water or diluted liquid
detergent.
• Do not use abrasive, corrosive or chlorine products, or steel wool.
• Do not use steam cleaners.
• Do not use flammable products.
• Do not leave acid or alkaline substances such as vinegar, salt, lemon juice,
etc., on the hob.
Stainless steel surface
Clean with a specific commercial product.
Cleaning the burners
To clean the hob burners, lift them out of their seats (Fig. 1) and place in a
solution of hot water and non-abrasive detergent for about 10 minutes. After
cleaning and washing the burners, thoroughly dry them.
Always make sure the openings are not blocked. It is advisable to carry
out this operation at least once a week or whenever necessary. Make sure to
properly refit the burners, turning them slowly so that the burner caps engage
in the injector holder seat (if perfectly centred, the burner lowers a little and
locks in place).
Pan support maintenance
• Clean the pan supports with a sponge and detergent whenever dirty.
• The pan supports will change colour near the burners. This is perfectly
normal and is due to the high temperature reached during cooking.

Oven cleaning

• After cooking, wait for the oven to cool then clean it to prevent the accumulation
of cooking residuals.
• For stubborn grime, use a specific oven cleaning product, following the
instructions given on the package.
• Clean the outside of the oven with a sponge and lukewarm water.
• Do not use abrasive products or steel wool.
• Clean the door glass with a liquid detergent.
• Soak the accessories in water with washing up detergent immediately after
use. Food residues can be easily removed using a brush or sponge.
Removing the side grids (depending on models)
Grip the bottom part of the side grids and pull towards the middle of the oven.
Lift upwards to completely remove.
Pull the side grid as shown in the picture (fig. 2). After releasing it from clips,
lift up.
Carry out the above steps in reverse order to refit the side grid.
Caution: After cleaning, be sure that the grids are fitted in their original sides.
The notches on the grids must be close to the front, not rear.
The use of a gas cooking appliance results in the production of heat and
moisture in the room in which it is installed. Ensure that the kitchen is well
ventilated: keep natural ventilation holes open or install a mechanical
ventilation device (mechanical extractor hood).
Prolonged intensive use of the appliance may call for additional ventilation, for
example opening of a window or more effective ventilation, for example
increasing the level of mechanical ventilation where present.
