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-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). 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!

  1. Wipe the inside of the oven using a household detergents or an ammonia-based cleaner.
  2. 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 enameled surfaces after each use.
  • To make cleaning the oven ceiling easier, the broil element can be lowered.  See following pages for instructions.

Oven Cavity

(Models With 'Self Clean; function only)

  • To clean light soiling off the enameled 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 enameled 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 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.

Replacing the Light Bulb

Note-Icon.png Oven bulb replacement is not covered by your warranty.
  • Your oven uses G9 halogen bulbs with the specifications 120V, 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 broil element cool down before changing the bulb. Before switching off the oven, take note of which light(s) are not working.
Important-Icon.png 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.
