How to Clean
Use hot, soapy water and a cloth. Dry with a clean cloth. Do not scour or use all-purpose
cleaners, ammonia, powdered cleaners or commercial oven cleaner. They can scratch
and discolor aluminum.
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 min-
utes. Rinse with a damp cloth and dry. DO NOT use abrasive cleaners on any of these
materials; they can scratch.
Clean stainless steel with hot, soapy water and a dishcloth. Rinse with clean water and
a cloth. Do not use cleaners with high concentrations of chlorides or chlorines. Do
not use harsh scrubbing cleaners. Only use kitchen cleaners that are especially made for
cleaning stainless steel. Always be sure to rinse the cleaners from the surface as bluish
stains may occur during heating that cannot be removed.
Gentle scouring with a soapy 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 scouring pad. Rinse and wipe dry with a clean cloth.
Remove all cleaners or the porcelain may become damaged during future heating. DO
NOT use spray oven cleaners on the cooktop.
This oven comes with lubricated porcelain oven racks, which can remain in the oven
during the self-clean cycle. Do not clean this vegetable oil lubrication off the racks. It is
important that the sides of the oven racks always have a light coating of vegetable oil. To
maintain optimal rack performance, re-apply a thin layer of vegetable oil to the sides of
the rack after every self-clean cycle or when the rack becomes difficult to slide.
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. The oven door gasket is made of a woven material,
on Self-Cleaning models, which is essential for a good seal. Care should be taken not to
rub, damage or remove this gasket.
