Whilst this is a photo copy, and some of the pages are a little askew, it was all readable and intact. A real bonus finding an old manual for a classic piece of kit that no other site had.
The manuel was exactly what I needed and I received it promptly. Thanks

Cleaning and Maintenance
Before cleaning always allow the cooling fan to cool the oven down before switching off at the electricity supply. This appliance cannot be cleaned with steam or with a steam cleaning machine. The oven should be kept clean at all times. A build-up of fats or other foodstuffs could result in a fire, especially in the grill pan.
Oven Shelves and Shelf Supports
Clean the oven shelf support before proceeding to the catalytic cleaning of the oven. To clean the oven shelves and the shelf supports, soak in warm soapy water and remove stubborn marks with a well wetted soap impregnated pad. Rinse well and dry with a soft cloth.
Before using any cleaning materials on your oven, check that they are suitable and that their use is recommended by the manufacturer. Cleaners that contain bleach should NOT be used as they may dull the surface finishes. Harsh abrasives should also be avoided.
Regularly wipe over the control panel, oven door and door seal using a soft cloth well wrung out in warm water to which a little mild washing-up liquid has been added. To prevent damaging or weakening the door glass panels avoid the use of the following: â¢ Household detergent and bleaches â¢ Impregnated pads unsuitable for non-stick saucepans â¢ Brillo/Ajax pads or steel wool pads â¢ Chemical oven pads or aerosols â¢ Rust removers â¢ Bath/Sink stain removers Clean the outer and inner door glass using warm soapy water. Should the inner door glass become heavily soiled it is recommended that a cleaning product such as Hob Brite is used. Do not use paint scrapers to remove soilage. DO NOT clean the oven door while the glass panels are warm. If this precaution is not observed the glass panel may shatter. If the door glass panel becomes chipped or has deep scratches, the glass will be weakened and must be replaced to prevent the possibility of the panel shattering. Contact your local Service Force Centre who will be pleased to advise further.
Shelf Supports and Catalytic Panels
The shelf supports and the catalytic panels can be removed for easy cleaning. Make sure that the appliance is completely cooled before carrying out this operation. Proceed as follows: 1) remove the front screw while keeping the shelf support and the catalytic panel in position with the other hand (see diagram 1); 2) keep the shelf support and the catalytic panel in position and lift them with a hand while disengaging the rear hook. Take off the shelf support and the catalytic panel (see diagram 2); 3) once the cleaning is carried out, fit the shelf support and the catalytic panel together and mount them following the procedure in reverse. Please, ensure the retaining nuts are secure when refitting the shelf support and the catalytic panel.
The enamelled base of the oven cavity is best cleaned whilst the oven is still warm. Wipe the oven over with a soft cloth soaked in warm soapy water after each use. From time to time it will be necessary to do a more thorough cleaning, using a proprietary oven cleaner. DO NOT attempt to clean catalytic liners.
