Cleaning the Oven
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.
The enamelled oven cavity is best cleaned whilst the oven is still warm. It is preferable/advisable to wipe the oven over with a soft cloth soaked in warm soapy water after each use. However, from time to time it will be necessary to do a more thorough cleaning using a proprietary oven cleaner, do not use abrasive scourers or steel wool. NOTE: Do NOT use caustic base oven cleaners.
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.
Oven Shelves and Shelf Supports
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. The shelf supports can be removed for easy cleaning (see diagram). Please, ensure the retaining nuts are secure when refitting the shelf support.
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 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 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. 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 Centre who will be pleased to advise further.
Cleaning the hinged grill
This model has been fitted with a hinged grill element to enable you to clean the roof of the oven easily. Before proceeding ensure the oven is cool and is disconnected from the electricity supply. 1) Undo the screws which holds the grill in place (see diagram). When doing this operation for the first time, we recommend using a screwdriver. 2) Then gently pull the grill downward to allow access to the oven roof (see diagram). 3) Clean the oven roof with a suitable cleaner and wipe dry before replacing the hinged grill element. 4) Gently push up the grill element into place and firmly screw into place the holding nuts. Ensure the grill holding nuts are firmly in place to avoid the grill falling down when in use.
