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.

  • 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.

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.
  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.

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, immerse in soapy water, use oven cleaner on them or leave in the oven during a Self Clean cycle (where available) 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. (Washing the baking tray in the dishwasher may degrade its surface)
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 to clean behind or fit catalytic panels* (purchased separately)

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

 Remove all the shelves

  1. Remove all the shelving, taking special care with the telescopic sliding shelves.
  2. To remove a telescopic sliding shelf*, grip it at the front (making sure you are gripping the wire shelf and the sliding frame together), lift upwards and pull it out of the oven. For your safety, the wire shelf and telescopic sliding frame are built together as one unit and are not separable.
  3. For easier access, we recommend removing the oven door. See ‘Removing and refitting the oven door.


*Purchased separately. Contact your authorised dealer, customer care or see our local website listed at the back of this document for details.

Remove both side racks

Remove both side racks by:

1) pushing down on the retaining wire until it clears the lower lock stud and swing out wards to

2) clear the upper lock studs, then

3) lift out.

 

Fit both catalytic panels.

Place each catalytic panel flush against the side wall, noting the position of the cutouts for the lamp and lock nuts.

Replace both side racks.

To replace the side racks, locate the top of the side rack into the two upper lock studs and gently push the retaining wire back under the lower lock stud.

Replacing a wire shelf

Replace shelving.

To replace a wire shelf, check the guard rail (as shown) to make sure the shelf is the right way up. Slide it horizontally back along the side racks ensuring it is level and the stop notch is facing down.

Removing the catalytic panels (purchased separately)

Remove the side racks as previously described, then pull the catalytic panel toward the centre of the oven, until clear of the lower locating nut.

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: use a flat-head screwdriver or a small coin to loosen the element fixing screw. The element will now drop down to enable cleaning.
  • When you have finished cleaning the oven ceiling, raise the element and screw the element fixing screw back onto the stud. Make sure that the fixing screw is tightened and the element is held securely in place.
  • The element itself is self-cleaning.

Replacing the oven light bulb

Oven bulb replacement is not covered by your warranty.

Your oven uses a screw-in incandescent OVEN bulb - it must be capable of withstanding high temperatures (300°C) and with the specifications: 230-240V, 50Hz and 25W.

The light is located in the ceiling of the oven, center front.

Changing the bulb

  1. Let the oven cavity and grill element cool down before changing the bulb.

Turn the oven off at the wall before continuing.

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 (11 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.
