General Care & Cleaning
Surfaces How to Clean
Plastic Body Parts &
For general cleaning, use a soft cloth, clean with mild dish detergent & water or a 50/50 solution
of vinegar & water. Follow by rinsing the area with clean water; dry & polish with a soft cloth.
Glass cleaners may be used if sprayed on a soft cloth 1st. DO NOT spray liquids directly on the
control pad and display areas. DO NOT use large amounts of water on the control panel - excess
water on the control area may cause damage to the appliance. DO NOT use other liquid
cleaners, abrasive cleaners, scouring pads, or some paper towels - they will damage the finish.
Panels & Display
Before cleaning the control panel, turn all controls to OFF & remove the control knobs. To
remove, pull each knob straight off the shaft. Use the general cleaning instructions provided in the
Broiler Pan & Insert,
Broiler Drawer, Door
Liner & Oven Bottom
Clean burner grates, broiler pan & insert in the dishwasher and dry upon removal. If soils are not
removed, follow the cooktop cleaning instructions below.
Gentle scouring with a soapy scouring pad will remove most spots. Rinse with a 1:1 solution of
clean water & 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, then scrub with a soap-filled
scouring pad. Rinse & 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 range top.
Remove racks. See "Removing & Replacing Oven Racks" under Before Setting Oven Controls.
Use a mild, abrasive cleaner, following the cleaner's recommendations. Rinse with clean water &
let dry. After cleaning the racks, rub the sides of the racks with wax paper or a cloth containing a
small amount of salad oil (this will make the racks glide easier into the oven rack positions).
Use soap & water to thoroughly clean the top, sides & 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.
Clean stainless steel with hot soapy water & a dishcloth. Rinse with clean water and a cloth.
DO NOT use cleaners with high conecentrations 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 form the surface as bluish stains may occur during
heating that cannot be removed.
Gas Cooktop and
The cooktop is designed to make cleaning easier. Because the burners are sealed, cleanups are
easy when spillovers are cleaned up immediately. To clean, wipe with a clean, damp cloth and
wipe dry. For more information about cleaning the gas burners see Cleaning the Contoured
Cooktop Well Areas, Burner Cap, Burner Head and Burner Drip Pans in the General Care
& Cleaning section.
