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 clean  cloth. 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 soft cloth. .    When  Teflon  panels  are  featured,  the  following rules  apply: 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 abrasives. 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: 1. 2. 3. 4. 5. 6. 7. Remove  tray  racks  by  pulling  straight  out. Remove right and left rack guides by lifting straight  out. Right-   and   left-hand   panels   may   now   be removed  by  moving  toward  the  center  and pulling out. 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.) General Notes 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. High-speed   air 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 temperature. 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 again.) 4-8
