Cleaning the Oven

FO 0287
Oven Cavity
The enamelled 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.
If the soilage has become set, after the oven has cooled
down, the following process will help to soften the
splatters to help make cleaning easier.
1. Place the grill/ meat pan on the oven shelf
positioned in the lowest runner.
2. Add a few drops of washing-up liquid to the
pan and fill to about 12 mm. with boiling water
from the kettle.
3. Close the oven door, turn the oven function
knob on fan oven  
  and set the thermostat
knob on 50°C.
4. After 15 minutes, turn off the thermostat and
allow the fan oven to continue without heat
for a further 5 minutes, when the temperatu-
re of the water will have cooled down.
5. Carefully remove the pan of water from the
oven and use normal oven cleaners to clean
away soil residues.
6. Leave a little of the soapy water to soak into
any burned on spillage on the floor of the oven
for a longer time if necessary.
Oven Shelves
To clean the oven shelves, soak in warm soapy water
and remove stubborn marks with a  well wetted soap
impregnated pad. Rinse well and dry with a soft cloth.
Cleaning the Oven
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.
