Care and cleaning

Always turn off the oven at the wall first. Ensure the oven has cooled down completely before starting.
DOS DON'TS
  • Before any manual cleaning or maintenance, first wait for the oven to cool down to a safe temperature to touch, then disconnect it from the power supply.
  • Read these cleaning instructions and the ‘Safety and warnings’ section before you start cleaning your oven.
  • See the following pages for instructions on removing and refitting different parts of the oven for cleaning.
  • To prevent soiling from becoming ‘baked on’ and stubborn, we recommend removing any spills, food or grease stains from the oven cavity enamel after each use.
  • Don’t use a steam cleaner.
  • Don’t keep flammable substances in the oven.
  • Don’t use or any abrasive or harsh cleaners, cloths, scouring pads or steel wool. Some nylon scourers may also scratch. Check the label.
  • Don’t leave alkaline (salty spills) or acidic substances (such as lemon juice or vinegar) on the oven surfaces.
  • Don’t use cleaning products with a chlorine or acidic base.

WHAT?

HOW?

IMPORTANT!

Glass surfaces

(oven door panes, control panel)

  1. Clean these using a soft cloth 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.

Dials

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

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

Stainless steel strip 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 cavity

To clean light soiling off the enamelled surfaces:

  1. Wipe with a damp cloth and a solution of hot water and mild detergent.
  2. Wipe dry with a soft cloth.
    • To clean stubborn, ‘baked on’soiling:
      1. Remove everything from the oven: shelves, trays, the side racks and catalytic panels. See down below for instructions.
      2. Use an ammonia-based cleaner or an oven cleaner. Follow the cleaner manufacturer’s instructions.
  • To prevent soiling from becoming ‘baked on’ and stubborn, we recommend removing any spills, food or grease stains from the enamelled surfaces after each use.
  • To clean the cavity ceiling, you will need to lower the grill element first.
    See Fig. 7.
  • To make cleaning the oven cavity easier, you can remove the oven door too. See down below for instructions.

Grill tray
Grill rack
Side racks
Oven shelves
Rotisserie parts
Baking tray

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

Sliding shelf supports

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, immerse in soapy water, or use oven cleaner on them as doing so will remove the white lubricating grease and prevent the slides from running smoothly.

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.

Side catalytic panels

  • If you roast or grill a lot of meat and hardly ever bake, heating an empty oven for 60-90 mins at 250 oC on Bake from time to time will help the panels to break down any greasy soiling.
  • To remove large food particles: gently wash the panels in warm soapy water. Rinse in clean water and allow to dry naturally.
  • If the panels become oversaturated, they will appear shiny and their ability to ‘self- clean’ will be reduced. In this event, they can be reversed.
  • 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.
  • Never use scourers, brushes, abrasives or cleaners with acid or alkali content on the catalytic panels.

 

Turn off the oven at the wall and wait until the element has cooled completely before starting.

  • To lower the grill element: use a flat-head screwdriver or a small coin to loosen the element fixing screws.
  • When you have finished cleaning the oven ceiling, raise the grill element and screw the element fixing screws back onto the studs. Make sure that the fixing screws are tightened and the element is held securely in place.
  • The grill element itself is self-cleaning.

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 refitting the oven door

We recommend removing the door to make cleaning the interior parts of the oven or replacing the light bulb(s) easier.

  • Take care, the oven door is heavy. 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.

To remove the door

 Removing and replacing the inner glass pane

The oven door has two panes of glass. The inner pane can be removed to make cleaning the glass easier.

Screen Shot 2017-09-28 at 9.35.39 AM.png
  • Take extreme care when handling the glass pane. Avoid the 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 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 the inner glass pane correctly. Do not use the oven without the inner glass pane correctly in place.
  • If the inner glass pane feels difficult to remove or replace, do not force it. Call
  • your Authorised Repairer or Customer Care for help. Note: service visits providing assistance with using or maintaining the oven are not covered by your warranty.

To remove the inner glass pane

 Screen Shot 2017-09-28 at 9.39.47 AM.png
