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 cooker off at the wall.
- Make sure the cooker is a safe temperature to touch.
- Do not use a steam cleaner.
- Do not store flammable substances in the oven or warming drawer.
- 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 (ie citrus-based cleaners).
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.
Caring for Your Cooktop
- Some heavy-duty and nylon scourers can scratch the ceramic glass of your cooktop. Always read the label to check if your scourer is suitable for cleaning ceramic glass cooktops.
- Use ceramic glass cleaner on the cooktop while it is warm to touch. Rinse and wipe dry with a clean cloth or paper towel. The cooktop may become stained if cleaning residue remains.
- Remove any food, spillovers or grease from the cooktop while it is still warm using a razor blade scraper suitable for ceramic glass surfaces. Do not use knives or any other sharp object for cleaning. Take extra care to avoid damaging the seal at the edges of the ceramic glass surface.
- Do not use cleaning products with a chlorine or acidic base.
Copper-based or aluminum cookware may cause metallic staining. These stains show as a metallic sheen on the cooktop. If the cooktop is not cleaned after every use and the stains are allowed to burn onto the surface, they may react with the glass and will no longer be removable. To help prevent such damage, clean the cooktop after every use and apply a glass cooktop conditioner.
Cleaning Melts and Spillovers
Anything that melts onto the ceramic glass surface or food spills with a high sugar content may cause pitting of the ceramic glass surface if they are left there to cool. Examples include:
- Plastic Wrap.
- Melted Aluminum Foil.
- Sugar, Sugary syrups, jams and jellies.
- Vegetables and vegetable water with a high sugar content eg peas, sweet corn, beetroot. Remove these spills immediately with a special razor blade cooktop scraper, taking care not to scratch the glass. Follow the steps below:
- Turn the element off and carefully scrape the spill to a cool area of the cooktop surface.
- Clean the spill up with a cloth or paper towel.
- As soon as the cooktop is cool enough to safely touch, clean with cooktop cleaner.
Cleaning the Stainless Steel Surround Strip
- To remove fingerprints and other marks, wipe with a clean damp cloth and dry with a lint free cloth.
Cleaning the Inside of your Oven
If using the Self Clean function remove all shelves and side racks first. See ‘Using the Self Clean function’.
- Do not use abrasive cleaners, cloths or pads to clean the enamel.
Removing the Side Racks
- Using a small coin or a flat-head screwdriver, loosen and remove the front fixing screw only.
- Slide the side rack clear of the rear lock stud and remove.
Refitting the Side Racks
- Slide the side rack gently so it engages with the rear lock stud. Make sure that they are the right way up, as in the illustrations, and then insert and tighten the front fixing screw.
Removing the Side Racks
Cleaning the Enamel Cavity
Clean the enamel on the inside of the oven when it has cooled down, using household detergents. Dry with a soft cloth.
Cleaning the Broiler Pan and Rack and Shelves
Clean these in hot, soapy water. After cleaning slide in the shelves and tray, making sure that:
Fitting and Removing the Sliding Shelf Supports
When fitting the sliding shelf supports, make sure that you fit:
- The side racks first.
- 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.
Using the Self Clean Function
- During the pyrolytic Self Clean cycle the extremely high temperature burns off and breaks down grime and grease deposits. All that is left is a small amount of grey ash that you can easily remove.
- You can set the Self Clean cycle time between one and a half and three hours. The heavier the soiling, the longer the cleaning time required.
- You must clean the inside glass door panel BEFORE starting a Self Clean cycle. Failure to do this may result in permanent staining or marking of the door glass.
- Do not use oven cleaners, any degreasing cleaners, or oven liners.
- Make sure you remove the side racks, oven shelves and trays and all other bake ware and utensils from the oven before starting a Self Clean cycle. If left in the oven, they will become permanently discolored or damaged; items made from combustible materials (eg wood, fabric, plastic) may even catch fire.
- Do not operate the warming drawer during the self clean cycle.
- The warming drawer will become warm during the Self Clean cycle. Do not store flammable items in the warming drawer. If possible, avoid opening the drawer during the cycle, or use oven mitts to remove items from the drawer.
- Do not use your oven to clean miscellaneous parts.
- Make sure the room is well ventilated.
- Before starting a Self Clean cycle, make sure you move any pet birds to another, closed and well- ventilated room. Some pet birds are extremely sensitive to the fumes given off during a Self Clean cycle, and may die if left in the same room as the oven during such a cycle.
- During a Self Clean cycle, the oven reaches higher temperatures than it does for cooking. Under such conditions, the surfaces may get hotter than usual and children should be kept away.
- The oven door will be locked during the Self Clean cycle. After the Self Clean cycle has finished, the door will remain locked until the oven has cooled to a safe temperature. This may take up to 30 minutes.
- If there are cracks or flaws on any of the oven door glass panes, if the oven seal is damaged or worn, or if the door does not close properly, do not start a Self Clean cycle. Call your Authorized Repairer or Customer Care.
- Caution: Do not leave food or cooking utensils etc. in the oven during self-cleaning.
