Care and cleaning

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

Before you start cleaning your cooker, please:

  • Read these cleaning instructions and the ‘Safety and warnings’ section at the start of this user guide.
  • Turn the power to the cooker off at the wall.
  • Make sure the cooker is a safe temperature to touch.
  • Do not use a steam cleaner.
  • Do not keep flammable substances in the oven.

General advice

  • Wipe down the cooktop and wipe out the oven after every use.
  • Wipe up spills. Avoid leaving alkaline or acidic substances (such as lemon juice or vinegar) on the surfaces.
  • Do not use cleaning products with a chlorine or acidic base.

Cleaning the outside of the cooker

  • Do not use abrasive cleaners, cloths or pads on the outside surfaces.
  • Immediately wipe off any caustic cleaners if they are spilled onto the oven door handle.

Wipe the outside surfaces often, using warm water and a mild household detergent. The stainless steel may also be cleaned with a suitable cleaner and polish.

if you choose to use a commercial stainless steel cleaner, please read the label to make sure it does not contain chlorine compounds as these are corrosive and may damage the appearance of your cooker.

Cleaning the gas cooktop

Maintenance Period

Description

Daily

  • Clean gas cooktop as per following instructions.

Monthly

  • Remove all burner parts, and clean using a non-abrasive detergent. Rinse in cold water, dry thoroughly, and replace.
  • Clean the ignitor carefully, using a toothbrush and methylated spirits.

Every 3-4 years

  • Contact your local authorised gas Service Agent to perform a thorough check on all gas components on the gas cooker.

Burner parts and trivets

  • You can remove and clean these parts with hot soapy water or non-abrasive detergents. Clean spills regularly before they become burnt on. Do not wash these parts in a dishwasher.
  • After cleaning, check that the burners and their flame spreaders are dry before replacing correctly.
  • It is very important to check that the burner flame spreader and the cap have been correctly positioned. Failure to do so can cause serious problems.

to avoid damage to the electronic ignition, do not try to light a burner without all burner parts correctly in place.

Replacing the auxiliary and semi-rapid burners

  • Carefully replace the burner parts as per the following Figs.
  • Check that the ignitor is always clean to ensure trouble-free sparking.
  • Clean it carefully with a toothbrush and methylated spirits (see Fig.26).

Cleaning the inside of your oven

Do not use abrasive cleaners, cloths or pads to clean the enamel. Clean the enamel on the inside of the oven when it has cooled down, using household detergents or an ammonia-based cleaner. You may use ‘off the shelf’ oven cleaners, if you carefully follow the manufacturers’ instructions.

To make cleaning easier, you can remove the side racks, the oven door, and the fat filter. The grill element is self-cleaning.

Cleaning the fat filter

Clean the fat filter after every use. If the filter is not cleaned, it will block and shorten the life of the fan element. If it is lightly soiled, place the filter in a dishwasher on normal wash. If the filter is very dirty, place in a saucepan with either two tablespoons of clothes washing powder, or one tablespoon of dishwashing powder. Bring to the boil and leave to soak for at least 30 minutes. Rinse the filter in clean water and dry.

Cleaning the oven door glass

Do not use harsh abrasive cleaners or sharp metal scrapers to clean the oven door glass since they scratch the surface, which may result in shattering of the glass. The inner glass door panel can easily be removed for cleaning by unscrewing the two fixing screws (Fig. 35). When re-assembling, ensure that the inner glass is correctly positioned and do not over-tighten the screws.

Drawer

Do not store flammable material in the drawer.

Removing the oven door

The oven door can easily be removed as follows:

  1. Open the door completely.
  2. Hook the swivel retainers of the right-hand and left-hand hinges (Fig. 37a) onto the metal bar above them (Fig. 37b).
  3. Lift the oven door slightly. The notch on the bottom of the hinge will disengage (Fig. 37c).
  4. Now pull the oven door forwards off the appliance. Release both hinge sections from the slots (Fig. 37d).
  5. Rest the door on a soft surface.
