Care & 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.
  • Always clean the inner glass pane before starting a Self Clean cycle (where available). Failure to do this will mean that residue will bake on and be impossible to remove.
  • Always remove oven shelves 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!


Control Panel

Take particular care when cleaning the control panel glass. Only use a damp cloth with detergent.

Do not use any oven cleaners, harsh or abrasive cleaners, scouring pads, steel wool or sharp metal scrapers on the glass. These may scratch and damage the surface.

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.
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 or an ammonia-based cleaner.
  2. Wipe dry with a soft cloth.
  • To clean stubborn, ‘baked on’ soiling or the whole oven cavity: use the Self Clean function. See ‘Using the Self Clean function’ for instructions.
  • 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. Doing so will reduce the need for using the Self Clean function frequently.
  • To make wiping out the oven easier you may remove the oven door. See the following pages for instructions.
Meat Probe (some models only) Clean with a solution of mild detergent and hot water, then wipe dry with a microfiber cloth.
  • Clean after every use to avoid contamination.
  • Do not wash in the dishwasher, immerse in soapy water, use oven cleaner or leave in the oven during a Self Clean cycle.
Full extension sliding shelf Wipe with a damp cloth and mild detergent. Do not wipe off or wash away the white lubricating grease (visible when the shelf is extended). Never leave in the oven during a Self Clean cycle. Do not wash the shelf in the dishwasher, immerse in soapy water, or use oven cleaner on it. Doing so will prevent the slides from running smoothly.

Grid

Grill rack

Grill Pan

Wire oven shelves

  • 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..
  • These parts are also dishwasher safe.
Never leave any of these parts in the oven during a Self Clean cycle (except for the side racks). They will become discolored or damaged.

Oven door glass

After every use

  • Use a soft cloth and a mixture of warm water and dishwashing liquid to remove light soiling after every use.
  • For stubborn stains, try using a mixture of baking soda and warm water with a non-abrasive scrubbing pad, then wipe dry with a soft, lint-free cloth.
  • Do not use oven cleaners or any other harsh/abrasive cleaners, cloths, scouring pads, steel wool or sharp metal scrapers to clean the oven door glass. These scratch the glass, which in turn could result in the glass cracking and shattering.
  • Do not allow grease to build up on the glass or become baked on as this reduces visibility into the oven.

 

Removing the Side Racks

Remove the side racks to make cleaning the oven easier.

The side racks can be left in the oven during the self clean cycle.

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

Remove All Shelves

Replacing the Oven Light Bulbs

Oven bulb replacement is not covered by your warranty

Your oven uses G9 halogen bulbs with the specifications 220 – 240V 50Hz and 25W.

Always hold the replacement bulb in a soft cloth. Touching the bulb will reduce its lifespan.

The two oven lights are located behind the opaque glass panels on each side wall of your oven (one on each side).

 

Changing the Bulb

  1. Let the oven cavity and grill element cool down before changing the bulb. Before switching off the oven, take note of which light(s) are not working.

Turn the oven off at the wall before continuing. 

  1. Remove the oven shelves and side racks (see ‘Care and cleaning’).
  2. Pull the glass cover off (if you find this difficult, you can gently prise the cover off using the handle of a spoon or similar in the notches between the glass panel and oven wall while holding the cover to ensure it does not fall).
  3. Pull out the faulty bulb.
  4. Holding the replacement bulb in a soft cloth or tissue (touching the bulb with your fingers will reduce its life span) insert it into the socket.
  5. Replace the glass cover pushing it firmly into place.

  • 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. 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. Contact a Fisher & Paykel trained and supported service technician 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. Contact a Fisher & Paykel trained and supported service technician or Customer Care.
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. Touch 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 notch at the bottom of the door and lift out. Do not angle the pane too much as you may damage the glass.

  • you replace the inner pane correctly as shown. The 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.

 

Replace the Middle Pane

Ensure the pane is the right way up (the black strip and warning text at the bottom of the pane should be readable back to front when the pane is fitted correctly).

  1. Ensure the rubber stoppers are still attached at the top to the pane. Ensure they are positioned correctly on the glass with the longer side running down the side of the glass panel as shown.
  2. Slot the bottom of the pane into the lower notch at the bottom of the door.
  3. Lower the pane into the door, the rubber stoppers rest on the outer pane of glass.
