Cleaning the Oven

19
Before cleaning always allow the cooling
fan to cool the oven down before switching
off at the electricity supply.
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.
Cleaning materials
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.
External cleaning
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:
Household detergent and bleaches
Impregnated pads unsuitable for non-
stick saucepans
Brillo/Ajax pads or steel wool pads
Chemical oven pads or aerosols
Rust removers
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, or Bar Keepers Friend is
used.
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.
