Thanks to Owner-Manuals.com! This manual was exactly what I needed. As Amana was purchased by Maytag and later by Whirlpool, there was no way to receive it from their websites. I was lucky to find this resource.
Great to be able to set channels again, on an old but stoll fine working TV

Stainless steel surfaces
Perform daily cleaning with a slightly damp cloth. For more severe soiling, use a liquid cream. Always clean the steel in the direction of the steel finish. To ensure that the steel retains its shine, it is recommended that you use a polishing agent for stainless steel on a regular basis. Always polish in the direction of the steel finish (crosswise). Never use steel wool, metal sponges or other abrasive cleaning agents.
3. Wipe the ceramic hob clean with a damp cloth or kitchen towel. Tough stains can be removed by rubbing the stain hard with kitchen towel. 4. Wipe off remaining cleaning agent with a damp cloth. 5. Wipe with a dry cloth, if required. Make sure that the ceramic glass is dry when you heat it up again. Ceramic glass can develop rainbow-like stripes if heated while damp. Spillages must be removed immediately, while the burner is still warm, using a ceramic glass scraper. Especially damaging are melted plastic, aluminium, or any foodstuff containing sugar, including natural sugar, as these can create permanent â€śpockmarksâ€ť and craters on the ceramic surface. After cleaning, polish thoroughly with the cleaning agent supplied with the unit. Defects in the ceramic surface which can be related to the above are not covered by the warranty. Warning: Aluminium foil and plastic utensils should not to be placed on hot surfaces. The surface should not be used for storage.
Cleaning of gas burners
Clean the control panel and knobs plus the pan grid, as well as burner caps and rings, with ordinary cleansing agents. Never use scouring powder, Brillo pads, metal pads or other scouring agents on enamelled or painted surfaces!
If water accidentally gets into the edge of the burner head (boil-over) the water must be removed with a lint-free cloth before the burner is turned on again. Likewise, caps and grids must be thoroughly wiped off before the gas ring is used again so that the boil-over does not permanently scar the enamel or paint.
The ceramic glass
Immediately scrape off stains caused by food which has boiled over, spilled sugar, dishes containing sugar (jam, juice, etc.), melted plastic and aluminium foil while the ceramic glass is still hot. If the ceramic glass is allowed to cool it may become damaged. After use the ceramic glass should be wiped with a damp cloth with washing up liquid. For severe soiling you can follow these steps: 1. Remove stains etc., with the ceramic glass scraper. 2. Make sure that the hob has cooled down. Use a ceramic cleaning agent such as vitroclen. Shake the bottle and apply a couple of squirts to the ceramic hob.
