Cleaning and Maintenance

 

Before any operation of maintenance disconnect the appliance from the electrical main supply.

Do not use steam jet cleaners because the humidity could infiltrate into the appliance making it dangerous.

Do not use harsh abrasive cleaners or sharp metal scrapers to clean the oven door glass since they can scratch the surface, which may result in shattering of the glass.

General Recommendation

  • Important: Before any operation of cleaning and maintenance disconnect the appliance from the electrical supply.
  • It is advisable to clean the appliance when it is cold, especially when cleaning the enameled parts.
  • Avoid leaving alkaline or acidic substances (lemon juice, vinegar, etc.) on the surfaces.
  • Avoid using cleaning products with a chlorine or acidic base.

The use of suitable protective clothing/gloves is recommended when cleaning and maintaining the appliance.

When correctly installed, your product meets all safety requirements laid down for this type of product category. However special care should be taken around the rear or the underneath of the appliance as these areas are not designed or intended to be touched and may contain sharp or rough edges, that may cause injury.

Enameled Parts

  • All the enameled parts must be cleaned with a sponge and soapy water only or other non-abrasive products.
    Dry preferably with a microfiber or soft cloth.

Painted Parts and Silk-Screen Printed Surfaces

  • Clean using an appropriate product. Always dry thoroughly.

These parts must be cleaned very carefully to avoid scratching and abrasion. You are advised to use a soft cloth and neutral soap.

Stainless Steel Elements

  • Stainless steel parts must be rinsed with water and dried with a soft and clean cloth.
  • For difficult dirt, use a specific non-abrasive product available commercially or a little hot vinegar.

Regular use could cause discoloring around the burners, because of the high flame temperature.

Inside of the Oven

The oven should always be cleaned after use when it has cooled down.
The cavity should be cleaned using a mild detergent solution and warm water. Suitable proprietary chemical cleaners may be used after first consulting with the manufacturers recommendations and testing a small sample of the oven cavity. Abrasive cleaning agents or scouring pads/cloths should not be used on the cavity surface.

The manufacturers of this appliance will accept no responsibility for damage caused by chemical or abrasive cleaning.

Let the oven cool down and pay special attention not to touch the hot heating elements inside the oven cavity.

Burners and Grids

  • These parts can be removed and cleaned with appropriate products.
  • After cleaning, the burners and their flame distributors must be well dried and correctly replaced.
  • It is very important to check that the burner flame distributor and the cap has been correctly positioned - failure to do so can cause serious problems.
  • Check that the probe “T” (figs. 6.1, 6.3) next to each burner is always clean to ensure correct operation of the safety valves.
  • Check that the electrode “S” (figs. 6.1, 6.3) is always clean to ensure trouble-free sparking.
  • Both the probe and ignition plug must be very carefully cleaned.

To avoid damage to the electric ignition do not use it when the burners are not in place.

Correct Position of the Semi-Rapid Burners

It is very important to check that the burner flame spreader “B” and the cap “A” have been correctly positioned (see figs. 6.1 and 6.2 ). Failure to do so can cause serious problems.

Correct Position of the Dual Burners

The Dual burner must be correctly positioned (see fig. 6.3); the flame spreader “E” must be fitted as shown by the arrows (fig. 6.4). Then position the cap “C” and the ring “D” (figs. 6.3 and 6.6). Correctly positioned burner should not rotate (fig. 6.5).

NEVER unscrew the burner inner flame spreader fixing screws (fig. 6.7). The inner flame spreader can be removed ONLY by an authorised service agent. Damage to the appliance will occur if not observing this condition and this may result in serious injury to the user. The manufacturer declines every responsibility for any inconvenience resulting from the non-observance of this condition.

 Cleaning the Dual Burner

Pay special attention to this burner: the two holes “H” on the inner flame spreader (fig. 6.8) must always be kept clean.
When cleaning, remove the external flame spreader “E” (fig. 6.3) and use a cotton bud, toothbrush, or some other item to clean out any incrustations or dirt from the two holes marked “H” (Fig. 6.8). This procedure is necessary to ensure the burner functions correctly. If the burner does not function correctly and it is not possible to clean out any incrustations or dirt from the two holes, contact the After-Sales Service.

Fitting and Removing the Sliding Shelf Supports

When fitting the sliding shelf supports, make sure that you fit:

  • The side racks the slides to the top wire of a shelf position.
  • Both sides of each pair of slides both slides on the same level.

Remove the side racks first to make removing the sliding shelf supports easier.
