CLEANING AND CARE
Before cleaning any part of the range, be sure all controls are
turned OFF and all surfaces are cool.
The outside surface is precoated metal and plastic. Clean the
outside with mild soap and water; rinse and dry with a soft
cloth. Do not use any type of household or abrasive cleaner.
STAINLESS STEEL SURFACE
The exterior should be wiped often with a soft damp cloth and
polished with a soft dry cloth to maintain its beauty. There are
also a variety of products designed especially for cleaning and
shining the stainless exterior of the oven. We recommend that
the cleaner be applied to a soft cloth and then carefully used
on the stainless exterior rather than sprayed directly on to it.
Follow package directions carefully.
OUTSIDE OF THE DOOR
Wipe the window on both sides with a soft damp cloth to
remove any spills or spatters. Metal parts will be easier to
maintain if wiped frequently with a soft damp cloth. Avoid
the use of spray and other harsh cleaners as they may stain,
streak or dull the door surface.
The control knobs may be removed for easier cleaning. Before
removing the knobs, make sure the knobs are in the OFF
position. Clean with a soft cloth dampened with mild soap
and water; rinse and dry with a soft cloth. When replacing the
knobs, check the OFF position to insure proper placement.
TOUCH CONTROL PANEL
If desired, the touch pads may be deactivated before cleaning.
See the Control Lock information on page 29 of this manual.
Wipe the panel with a cloth dampened slightly with water only.
Dry with a soft cloth. Do not scrub or use any sort of chemical
cleaners. Close door and touch Stop/Clear.
If the cooktop should crack or break, do not use or attempt to
clean it. Call an authorized servicer.
NORMAL DAILY USE CLEANING
Only use cleaning products that have been speciﬁcally designed
for glass ceramic cooktops. Read and follow all instructions
and warnings on the cleaning cream label. A sample cleaner
cream is supplied with your range.
Before using the cooktop, clean the cooktop with the cleaner
cream. To avoid possible damage to the cooking surface, do not
apply cleaning cream to the glass surface when it is hot.
We recommend that you avoid wiping any surface unit areas
until they have cooled and the hot surface indicator light has
gone off. Sugar spills are the exception to this.

SUGARY SPILLOVERS (JELLIES, FUDGE,
CANDY, SYRUPS ETC.), MELTED PLASTICS OR
HEAVY BURNED ON RESIDUE
Sugary spillovers, melted plastics or heavy burned on residue
can cause pitting of the surface of your cooktop unless the
spill is removed while still hot.
You must begin cleaning the spills while the cooktop is
1 Turn off all surface units and remove all pans immediately.
2 Wearing an oven mitt, use a razor blade scraper at a 30
degree angle against the glass ceramic surface and scrape from
hot surface to a cooler area.
3 Remove the spills with paper towels.
• Do not use a dull or nicked blade. Be sure to use a new,
sharp razor scraper.
• Do not use the razor blade for daily cleaning as it may wear
the pattern on the glass.
METAL MARKS OR BURNED ON RESIDUE
Metal marks and burned on residue should be removed
immediately after the cooktop has cooled. Metal marks can
become permanent if not removed prior to future use.
1 Dampen a “scratchless” or “never scratch” pad that is safe
for non-stick cookware. The pattern and glass will be damaged
if the pad is not damp or is soiled or if another type of pad is
used. Apply a cleaner cream for glass ceramic cooktops.
2 Scrub to remove as much soil as possible.
3 Apply the cleaner cream over the soil, cover with a damp
paper towel and let stand 30 minutes to 1 hour. Keep moist by
covering the paper towel with plastic wrap.
4 Scrub again and wipe off with another clean, damp paper
towel. Then wipe dry.
• Do not use aluminum foil on the cooktop.
• If pots or pans of aluminum or copper are allowed to boil dry,
permanent damage may affect the ceramic glass surface.
• Do not slide pots and pans across the cooktop surface.
