Care & Maintenance



Cleaning the Warming Drawer

  • Be careful cleaning any part of this appliance, particularly the drawer box and back of the drawer face.  All parts of the drawer can be cleaned with a hot soapy damp cloth, rinsed, dried and buffed with a heavy pile cloth. Always try this first, as it is the mildest cleaning procedure.
  • Be sure the warming drawer is turned off and the appliance is cool before using any type of aerosol cleaner on or around the appliance. The chemical that produces the spraying action could, in the presence of heat, ignite or cause metal parts to corrode.
  • Use the mildest cleaning procedure first. Some brands of cleaners are harsher than others, read their directions.  Try on a small area first.
  • To avoid marring the surface always rub the metal finishes in the direction of the polish grain lines.  The cleaner will be more effective when used in the direction of the polish lines.
  • Use only clean sponges, soft cloths, paper towels, plastic or non-metal soap pads for cleaning or scouring, as recommended in this section.

  • Be sure to rinse all parts thoroughly and to wipe dry to avoid water marks.
  • Remove food particles after every use.

  2. Pull the drawer open towards you all the way until it reaches the stop position (Fig. 13).
  3. Unlock the drawer by lifting up the tab on the left hand side (Fig. 14) and pressing down the tab on the right hand side (Fig. 15) while pulling the drawer open at the same time (Fig. 16).

Replacing the Drawer

Caution-Icon.png With the drawer removed, the heating element is exposed. Never turn the unit on while the drawer is removed. Never let children play near or touch the warming drawer while it is not safely installed. Push the slides back into the cabinet while the drawer is removed to prevent accidents.
  1. To reinstall the drawer, push the slides fully inside.
  2. Position the drawer in front of the cavity and align the slides (Fig. 17).
  3. With the slides aligned, push the drawer all the way inside (Fig. 18).
Note-Icon.png When the drawer is re-installed, the slides may feel stiff and hard to push in. This is normal. Pull the drawer back out to realign the rollers. The drawer should now feel smooth and free.
