Care and cleaning

Always turn off the oven at the wall first. Ensure the oven has cooled down completely before starting.

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-to- reach spills, food or grease stains from the oven cavity enamel after each use.
  • Always clean the inner glass pane before starting a Self Clean cycle (where available).
  • Always remove oven shelves and side racks before starting a Self Clean cycle (where available).
  • 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 or in a pyrolytic oven.
  • 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.

 

What? How? Important!

Glass surfaces
(oven door panes, control panel)

Door comprises a total of 3 glass panes

 

  • 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.

Aluminium framing of oven door and plastic corner clips

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

 
Oven cavity
  • Remove everything from the oven: all shelves and trays, the side racks, the catalytic panels.
  1. Remove the oven door (see instructions on following pages).
  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 following pages for instructions.

Grill tray
Grill rack

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. (Washing the baking tray in the dishwasher may degrade its surface)
  • You don’t need to remove the four lock studs from the grill tray. They can be soaked and cleaned while fixed to the tray.

  • Never leave any of these parts in the oven during a Self Clean cycle. They will get discoloured or damaged.

Oven seal Do not clean this part.
Oven vent louvres Wipe with a damp cloth. Take care not to let any liquid run down the louvres of the oven vent.

 

Removing and replacing the side racks

  • Use a flat-head screwdriver or a small coin to loosen the fixing screws.
  • When replacing the side racks, make sure that you tighten the fixing screws.

Removing and refitting the sliding shelf supports

  • Remove the side racks first to make removing the sliding shelf supports easier.
  • The sliding shelf supports can only be used on shelf position 1, 3 and 4. They cannot be used on shelf position 2.

When refitting the sliding shelf supports, make sure that you fit:

  • the side racks first

  • the slides to the top wire of the shelf position

  • both sides of each pair of slides

  • both slides on the same level.

Removing and replacing 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 (14 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 edges of the glassbumping against any surface. This mayresult 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.

 
Door comprises a total of 4 glass panes

 

Remove the door


  1. Make sure you have prepared enough space for resting the door and its glass panes on a clean, flat surface.

  2. Open the door to its full extent.


3. Open the levers on the left and right hinges to their full extent, as shown.

4. Gently close the door until the left and right hinge levers are hooked to the door.



5. Hold the door firmly, as shown.

 


6. Lift the door and disengage the hinges. Rest the door on a soft surface. Ensure you lay it with the handle side down.

 

Remove the inner and middle glass panes (three in total)


1. Press down on both tabs (1) to release the glass retainer (2).


2 Lift the inner pane (D) slightly (1), then gently slide out (2).


3. Slide the first middle pane (C) slightly towards yourself (1), then lift (2) and slide out (3).


4. Slide the second middle pane (B) slightly towards yourself (1), then lift (2) and slide out (3).

 

After cleaning, replace the glass panes

When replacing the glass panes, make sure that:

  • you replace all three panes correctly, as shown. Each pane must be in the position described below in order to fit into the door and to ensure that the oven operates safely and correctly
  • you take extra care not to bump the edges of the glass against any object or surface
  • you do not force any of the panes into place. If you are experiencing difficulties replacing the panes, remove them and start the process again from the beginning. If this still does not help, call Customer Care.


1. Take either one of the middle panes (B or C) and hold it firmly. Insert it in the lowest pair of grooves (1), push it slightly towards yourself (2) and gently lower into place (3).

The two middle panes (B and C) are identical.



2. Take the other middle pane and hold it firmly. Insert it in the next pair of grooves (1), push it slightly towards yourself (2) and gently lower into place (3).



3. Take the inner pane (D), holding it with the angle-cut corner orientated as shown. Insert it in the uppermost pair of grooves (1), push it slightly towards yourself (2) and gently lower into place (3).

Make sure that the angle-cut corner of the inner pane (D) is at the bottom of the oven door, on the left-hand side. It has to be in this position for the door to function correctly.


4. Position the glass retainer, as shown. It should sit on the bottom edge of the outer glass (A). Check that the clamps of the glass retainer are not deformed or damaged.



5. Gently push the glass retainer back into place. You should be able to hear the tabs on both sides click as they lock the glass retainer in.

Make sure the glass retainer is correctly and firmly in place and that the glass panes are secure.

Refit the door


  1. Hold the door firmly.

  1. Insert the hinge tongues into the slots, making sure that the notches on both sides drop into place as shown.
  1. Open the door to its full extent.


  1. Fully close the levers on the left and right hinges, as shown.
  2. Close the door, turn the power supply to the oven on at the wall, then check that the door is properly in place:
  • When you open the door, the lights in the oven should come on.
  • When you close the door, the lights in the oven should turn off.

 

Replacing the oven light bulbs

The oven light bulbs (12V/20 W halogen) have a very long life, but if you should need to replace one, use only a replacement bulb purchased from your nearest Fisher & Paykel dealer and follow these steps. 

Oven bulb replacement is not covered by your warranty.

  1. Allow the oven to cool down, then turn it off at the mains power supply (wall switch).

  1. Remove any oven shelves that may get in the way.

  1. Using a flat-head screwdriver, twist and lift the retainer clip upwards to release the glass cover. Hold the glass cover to prevent it falling.


  1. Carefully lift the glass cover out of the retaining bracket in the back and pull out the faulty bulb.
  1. Hold the replacement bulb in a soft cloth or tissue (touching the bulb will reduce its life span) and insert it into the socket.
  1. Reposition the glass cover and twist the retainer clip back in place. Turn the oven back on at the mains power supply (wall switch).
