Oven cleaning - exterior
Prepare a solution of mild soap and water, im-
merse a soft cloth or sponge into the solution and
wring dry. Wipe exterior. Rinse cloth or sponge in
warm water and wring dry. Wipe exterior again
and polish dry.
Oven cleaning - interior
1. After every use while the oven is still warm,
wipe spatters or spills with a soft damp cloth or
sponge. See page 32 for directions on the
OVEN CLEANING function. Use this function
to clean thoroughly.
2. The cleaning cloth or sponge must be wrung
dry to prevent moisture or residue from enter-
ing the oven vents.
3. Do not use spray type cleaners on the oven
4. Any remaining food or fat could cause smoke
or an unpleasant smell. It is a good idea to heat
the oven using THERMAL 400°F for 20 min-
utes to remove any fat or residue from the inte-
rior ducts and heaters.
Door / door gasket / control panel
To remove all traces of dirt, regularly clean both
sides of the door, with a soft, damp cloth. Do not
use harsh, abrasive cleaners or sharp metal scrap-
ers to clean the oven door glass since they can
scratch the surface, which may result in shatter-
ing of the glass.
The door gasket is essential for a good seal. Al-
ways keep the gasket clean to prevent any dam-
age. If water condenses inside the door gasket,
wipe dry with a soft cloth. Care should be taken
not to rub, damage, pull or move the gasket. Be-
fore cooking, always check that door gasket is ly-
ing smooth and flat. If not, steam will leak from
the door. Do not use the superheated steam oven
if it has a damaged door gasket as steam would
not be contained in the oven. Consult a Sharp Au-
Gently wipe the front of the door, control panel
and display with a soft cloth slightly dampened
only with water. Polish with another soft cloth.

Clean often to ensure that no residue is inside.
Wrap a soft cloth around a long, narrow spatula
and carefully wipe all areas of the cavity.
After each cooking session, remove the drain tube
and wash thoroughly with hot, soapy water, in-
cluding the center of the tube. Rinse and dry be-
fore replacing in the oven.
Base tray / rack / baking tray / perforated tray
Keep clean by washing after every use in a mild
soap or detergent solution, rinsing and polishing
dry. Do not use harsh cleaners, sharp metal scrap-
ers or stiff brushes to prevent damage to the easy-
clean surface. All the accessories can be washed
in the dishwasher. Place on the top rack.
After each use, empty reser-
voir and rinse with clean tap
water. Do not place in the
dishwasher. Frequently, wash
in a mild soap or detergent so-
lution, rinse and polish dry. It
may be necessary to wrap a
soft cloth around a long
spatula to wipe the inside of
the reservoir thoroughly. Note the filter in the rear
bottom of the reservoir. Use a very soft brush to
remove any build-up in the filter. The filter cannot
be removed nor replaced so special care should
be used when cleaning it. Do not use harsh clean-
ers, sharp metal scrapers or stiff brushes on the
reservoir or reservoir filter.
Empty drip tray after each use, wash in a mild
soap or detergent solution, rinse, polish dry and
replace below the oven front. Do not clean in dish-
