Care and cleaning

Always turn off the oven at the wall first. Ensure the oven has cooled down completely before starting.
Removing and replacing the sliding shelves and side racks
  1. To remove a sliding shelf, grip it by its two front corners (making sure you are gripping the wire shelf and the sliding frame together), tilt upwards and pull it out of the oven.
  2. To remove the side racks, gently push the retaining wire from underneath the lock stud, then swing the lowest edge of the side rack up and out towards the centre of the oven until the rack is almost horizontal. The prongs at the top will slide out of the mounting slots.
  3. To replace the side racks, hold them almost horizontally and locate the prongs into the small mounting slots at the top of the oven cavity. While you are doing this, support the rack with your hand from underneath, to ensure that both prongs perfectly locate into the mounting slots.
  4. Lower the side racks carefully and gently place the retaining wire underneath the lock stud.

Do not lower the side racks until the prongs are fully inserted into the slots so that you do not chip the enamel.

 

Changing the oven light bulbs

The oven is illuminated by three 12 volt/20 watt halogen bulbs. These 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:

  1. Allow the oven to cool and then turn it off at the wall.
  2. Take out the shelves and side racks (see ‘Removing and replacing the sliding shelves and side racks’) and use a small flat-head screwdriver to twist and lift the retainer clip at the top of the glass light cover while holding the glass to prevent it falling. The clip pivots anti-clockwise (see the diagram).
  3. Carefully lift the glass cover out of the lower support and 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 the new bulb.
  5. Reposition the glass cover and twist the top clip back in place. The procedure is the same for the light in the roof of the oven cavity.

Oven bulb replacement is not covered by your warranty.

 

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.
  • Always remove oven shelves and side racks before starting a Self Clean cycle.
  • 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 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!

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 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 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.

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 as doing so will remove the white lubricating grease and prevent the slides from running smoothly.

Meat probe

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.

Grill rack Pan & Grid Side racks 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.
  • Never leave any of these parts in the oven during a Self Clean cycle. They will become discoloured or damaged.

Oven seal

Do not clean this part.

  • Do not rub, damage or remove the seal as it is important for ensuring your oven runs efficiently.

Oven vent louvres

Wipe with a damp cloth.

  • Take care not to let any liquid run down the louvres of the oven vent.

Oven door glass

Use a mild solution of detergent and warm water; use a glass cleaner to remove smears.

  • Do not use sharp metal scrapers or scourers on the glass as it may scratch the surface and cause the glass to shatter
