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-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.
  • Never spray detergent or liquid onto the buttons on the control panel. Liquid may seep behind the button and damage the electronics.

 

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 microfiber 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.

Catalytic panels (OB60SL9 models only)

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.
  • 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 (OB60SL9 models only)
  • 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.
Oven cavity (OB60SL11 models only)
  • 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.
  • Always remove the side racks before a Self Clean cycle
  • To make wiping out the oven easier you may remove and the oven door. See the following pages for instructions.
Telescopic 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, 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.
Meat probe (some models only) Clean with a solution of mild detergent and hot water, then wipe dry with a microfiber cloth.

Removing the side racks and catalytic panels (some models only)

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.

  1. For easier access, we recommend removing the oven door. See ‘Removing and refitting the oven door.’

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.

Remove the catalytic panels
Once you have removed the side racks, pull the catalytic panel toward the centre of the oven, until it is clear of the lower locating nut.

Refitting the side racks and catalytic panels

Once you have cleaned the side racks and catalytic panels, follow the instructions in the ‘Quick start guide’ under ‘First use’ to refit the catalytic panels, side racks and shelving in that order.

Always turn off the oven at the wall before lowering the grill 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 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 life-span.

The four oven lights are located behind the opaque glass panels on both side walls of your oven (two on either 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’). OB60SL9 models only - remove the catalytic panels also.

  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. There are two halogen bulbs located in the recess. Pull out the faulty bulb.

  4. Holding the replacement bulb in a soft cloth or tissue (touching the bulb will reduce its

    life span) insert it into the socket.

  5. Replace the glass cover pushing it firmly into place.

  6. Replace the catalytic panels (OB60SL9 models only), side racks and oven shelves .

Removing and refitting the oven door

Take care, the oven door is heavy!

To remove the door  
  1. Open the door fully.

2. Open the levers fully.

3. Hold the door.

4. Close the door until it connects with the top of both levers

5. Disengage the hinges and remove the door.


To refit the door

Repeat the steps in reverse order:

  1. Slide the hinges into the slots while lifting the door slightly to engage the hinge.
  2. Open the door fully.
  3. Close the levers fully. If the levers do not lie flat, reposition the door by opening the levers fully again and following steps 1-3.

Ensure the levers lie flat against the hinge before trying to shut the door.

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.

  • 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.
