Care and cleaning

Manual cleaning

Always

Never

  • Before any manual cleaning or maintenance, first wait for the oven to cool down to a safe temperature to touch, then turn its power supply off at the wall.
  • Read these cleaning instructions and the ‘Safety and warnings’ section before you start cleaning your oven.
  • To prevent soiling from becoming ‘baked on’ and stubborn, we recommend removing any easy-toreach spills, food or grease stains from the oven cavity enamel after each use.
  • Never use a steam cleaner.
  • Never store flammable substances in the oven.
  • Never use abrasive or harsh cleaners, cloths, scouring pads or steel wool. Some nylon scourers may also scratch. Check the label first.
  • Never use oven cleaner on catalytic panels (some models only).
  • Never leave alkaline (salty spills) or acidic substances (such as lemon juice or vinegar) on the oven surfaces.
  • Never use cleaning products with a chlorine or acidic base.

Important!

Glass surfaces (oven door panes, control panel)

Door comprises a total of 3 glass panes

Screen Shot 2017-09-28 at 9.34.07 AM.png

  • To clean glass pane B, you will first need to remove the door and the inner pane.

For instructions, see section ‘Removing and replacing the door glass panes for cleaning’.

  1. Clean with a solution of mild detergent or baking soda and hot water, then wipe dry.
  2. Wipe with a glass cleaner and dry with a soft, lint-free cloth.
  • Don’t use oven cleaners or any other harsh/abrasive cleaners, cloths, scouring pads, steel wool or sharp metal scrapers to clean the glass surfaces. These scratch the glass and may damage its special coating, which in turn could result in the glass cracking or shattering.
  • Even if you only clean the inner pane (C), remove the door and the pane first. Cleaning the glass with the pane in the door may result in cleaning liquid running down the gaps and drying onto internal components.
  • Take particular care when cleaning the control panel glass. Only use a damp cloth with detergent.

Dials

Clean with a solution of mild detergent and hot water, then wipe dry.

Do not use stainless steel or oven cleaner on the dials, as doing so may damage their coating.

Stainless steel strip/handle on the front of the oven door

  • Clean with a solution of mild detergent and hot water, then wipe dry with a microfibre cloth.
  • If necessary, use a suitable stainless steel cleaner and polish.
  • Always read the label to make sure that your stainless steel cleaner does not contain chlorine compounds as these are corrosive and may damage the appearance of your oven.
  • Always rub the stainless steel in the direction of the grain.

Oven door frame and plastic corner clips

Clean with a solution of mild detergent and hot water, then wipe dry.

 
Catalytic panels (purchased separately)

To clean light soiling off the surfaces:

  1. Wipe with a damp cloth and a solution of hot water and mild detergent or an ammonia-based cleaner.
  2. Wipe dry with a soft cloth.

To clean stubborn, ‘baked on’ soiling run the oven on Fan Grill at 200°C for 1.5 hours to enhance the catalytic panel cleaning function.

  • These panels are normally ‘self-cleaning’ because their special enamel breaks down greasy splatters when the oven is used for ‘non-greasy’ baking, especially at high temperatures.
  • Do not use oven cleaner on the catalytic panels. If you wish to use oven cleaner on any other part of the enamelled cavity, first remove the catalytic panels.
  • Do not immerse catalytic panels in water.
  • Never use scourers, brushes, abrasives or cleaners with acid or alkali content on the catalytic panels.

Oven cavity

  • Remove everything from the oven: all shelves and trays, the side racks, the catalytic panels (if purchased separately).
  1. Remove the oven door (see 'Removing and refitting the oven door').
  2. Wipe the inside of the oven using a household detergents or an ammonia-based cleaner.
  3. Wipe clean with a damp cloth and allow to dry completely.
  • To prevent soiling from becoming ‘baked on’ and stubborn, we recommend removing any easy-to reach spills, food or grease stains from the enamelled surfaces after each use.
  • To make wiping out the oven easier you may remove and the oven door. See the following pages for instructions.
  • To make cleaning the oven ceiling easier, the grill element can be lowered. See 'Drop-down upper element'.

Telescopic sliding shelf supports (purchased separately)

Wipe with a damp cloth and mild detergent. Do not wipe off or wash away the white lubricating grease (visible when the slides are extended).

Do not wash these in the dishwasher or immerse in soapy water. Do not use oven cleaner on them; as doing so will remove the white lubricating grease and prevent the slides from running smoothly.

Grill tray

Grill rack

Side racks

Oven shelves

Baking tray

  • Clean with a solution of mild detergent and hot water.
  • Pre-soak stubborn burnt-on stains in a solution of dishwasher powder and hot water..
  • Except for the baking tray these parts are also dishwasher safe.

Oven seal

Clean with a solution of mild detergent and hot water

Always turn off the oven at the wall before lowering the upper element. Make sure the oven has cooled down completely before starting.  

  • To lower the upper element: pull the two securing clips gently forward to release the element. The element will now drop down to enable cleaning.
  • When you have finished cleaning the oven ceiling, pull the securing clips forward, raise the element and release the clips. Make sure the element is securely held in place.
  • The element itself is self-cleaning.

Refitting the side racks and catalytic panels (some models only, purchased separately)

Fit the catalytic panel to the side rack
  1. Ensure the panels are placed the correct way around: the hole for the fixing screw goes to the front of the oven. Note: The shiny side of the catalytic should face the inside of the oven cavity.
  2. Fit the rear prongs of the side rack through the holes in the catalytic panel.

Removing and refitting the sliding shelf supports

Compact ovens only:

The sliding shelf supports cannot be used on shelf positions 3 and 4.

To fit
  1. Ensure the slides are the correct way around (the front of the slide has the triangular shaped tab as shown).
  2. Fit the top of the clips over the side rack, the front clip should be fitted as close to the front of the side rack as possible. Make sure the rear clip has engaged.
  3. Rotate the slide down and ‘click’ the bottom of the clips into place.

Screen Shot 2017-09-28 at 10.29.05 AM.png

When refitting the sliding shelf supports, make sure that you fit:
  • the side racks first
  • the slides to the top wire of a shelf position (shelf positions 1 & 2 only in compact ovens)
  • both sides of each pair of slides
Refit the oven shelves and grill pan
  • Slide in the shelves you need, making sure that:
  • They slide between the two wires of a shelf position (unless a sliding shelf support is being use)
  • The stop notches point down
  • The guard rail is to the rear.

Removing the door glass panes for cleaning

  • Make sure you follow the precautions and instructions below very carefully. Replacing the glass panes and the door incorrectly may result in damage to the oven and may void your warranty.
  • Take care, the oven door is heavy (8 kg). If you have any doubts, do not attempt to remove the door.
  • Make sure the oven and all its parts have cooled down. Do not attempt to handle the parts of a hot oven.
  • Take extreme care when handling the glass panes. Avoid the corners and edges of the glass bumping against any surface. This may result in the glass shattering.
  • Don’t use oven cleaners or any other harsh/abrasive cleaners, cloths, scouring pads, steel wool or sharp metal scrapers to clean the glass surfaces. These scratch the glass and may damage its special coating, which in turn could result in the glass cracking or shattering.
  • If you notice any sign of damage on any of the glass panes (such as chipping or cracks), do not use the oven. Call your Authorised Repairer or Customer Care.
  • Make sure you replace all the glass panes correctly. Do not use the oven without all glass panes correctly in place.
  • If the glass panes feel difficult to remove or replace, do not force them. Call your Authorised Repairer or Customer Care for help.

Service visits providing assistance with using or maintaining the oven are not covered by your warranty.

We recommend removing the door to make cleaning the glass easier. See ‘Removing and refitting the oven door’ for instructions. Once the door is removed, lay it down on a soft, clean, flat surface.

Make sure you follow the precautions and instructions below very carefully. Replacing the glass panes and the door incorrectly may result in damage to the oven and may void your warranty.

To remove the inner pane
  1. Press the glass retainer tabs in on both sides of the door.
  2. Pull the glass retainer up until the tabs relocate in the topmost hole.
  3. Holding the top of the inner pane, gently pull the pane toward the top of the door until the pane is clear of the clamp at the bottom of the door and lift out. Do not angle the pane too much as you may damage the glass.
