In general, the principles detailed previously apply.
Soap or detergent and water will usually take care of
routine cleaning. Drying should be done with a soft
For burnt-on foods and grease that resist simple
soap and water cleaning, an abrasive cleaner mixed into
a paste may be used. Apply with a sponge, always
rubbing with the grain.
This treatment is usually
effective for heat tint (slightly darkened areas caused by
oxidation). Again, remember to rub in the direction of
the polish lines. Rinse with clear water and dry with a
. When Teflon panels are featured, the following
To protect the easy-care properties of Teflon-coated
oven panels, frequent cleaning, dependent on oven
usage, is recommended. Panels should be cleaned as
soon as soil begins to turn brown. This will minimize
the possibility of Teflon discoloration. Do not use sharp
instruments, abrasive materials, or oven cleaners on a
Teflon surface, otherwise the warranty is void. Should
the surface be accidently scratched, the performance and
cleanability features would be adversely affected.
To clean the Teflon panels, remove panels and wash
thoroughly with hot sudsy water using a sponge or web
pad that is supplied with the oven. Do not use harsh
Rinse well and dry. Between these
cleanings, everyday oven spatters can be easily sponged
off with a sudsy sponge or a cloth, rinsed, and dried.
With Teflon, there is never a need for oven cleaner. The
step-by-step sequence for removing panels is as follows:
Remove tray racks by pulling straight out.
Remove right and left rack guides by lifting
Right- and left-hand panels may now be
removed by moving toward the center and
To avoid scratching, do not rest
panels on bottom panel.
Remove bottom panel by pulling straight out.
Remove blower baffle by lifting straight up and
pulling out toward the front. Care should be
exercised to clear brackets on the side.
Blower wheel can now be cleaned in place.
Top panel and interior door panels can be
cleaned while in place.
8. If removal of top panel is desired, unscrew three
screws from the front top edge of top and two
screws from rear flange of top.
9. Slide out toward front.
To reassemble, reverse these procedures.
To keep the stainless steel front bright and gleaming
at all times, just clean it regularly with a damp cloth and
polish with a soft dry cloth. To remove discolorations
that may have formed when regular cleaning was
neglected, use any detergent or plain soap and water.
Wash all exterior surfaces daily. Use a cloth wet
with warm water and a mild soap or detergent. Where
surfaces have been polished, rub lightly with a
cloth-hard rubbing will remove polish. Follow with a
clean damp cloth, then dry. This simple beauty
treatment not only keeps your equipment dirt-free and
sparkling, but virtually eliminates the danger of grease
accumulation that may form a stubborn stain if left on
too long. (NOTE: Do not sprinkle or pour water over
oven as it may cause an electrical short.)
Most convection ovens are equipped with an
electric interlock that energizes/de-energizes both the
heating elements and the fan motor when the doors are
closed/open. Therefore, the heating elements and fan
will not operate independently and will only operate
with the doors closed. Some convection ovens are
equipped with single-speed fan motors while others are
equipped with two-speed fan motors. This information
is particularly important to note when baking cakes,
muffins, meringue or custard pies, or similar products,
and when oven-frying bacon.
circulation may cause damage to the food (for example,
cakes slope to one side of the pan) or blow melted fat
throughout the oven. Read the manufacturers manuals
and determine exactly what features you have and then,
for the previous products, proceed as follows:
. On two-speed interlocked fan motor: set fan
speed to low.
. On single-speed interlocked fan motor: preheat
oven 50°F higher than the recommended cooking
Load oven quickly, close doors, and
reduce thermostat to recommended cooking
temperature. (This action will allow the product to be
baked to setup before the fan/heating elements come on
