.
to conventional cooking
2. Set the thermostat control knob to MAX.
3. Open a window for ventilation.
4. Allow the oven to run empty for approximately
45 minutes.
This procedure should be repeated with the grill
function for approximately 5-10 minutes.
Using the Oven
Always cook with the oven door
closed.
Stand clear when opening the drop
down oven door. Do not allow it to fall open support the door using the door handle, until
it is fully open.
The oven has four shelf levels, and is
supplied with two shelves. The shelf
positions are counted from the bottom of the
oven as shown in the diagram.
Do not place cookware directly on the oven
base.
Cleaning the Oven
Before cleaning always allow the
cooling fan to cool the cooker down
before switching off at the electricity supply.
Do not use steam cleaners.
The oven should be kept clean at all times. A buildup of fats or other foodstuffs could result in a fire,
especially in the grill pan.
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 and harsh abrasives
should NOT be used.
For external and internal cleaning, use a soft cloth
well wrung out in warm water to which a little liquid
detergent 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.
Should the inner door glass become heavily soiled
it is recommended that a cleaning product such
as Hob Brite 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, it must be replaced to
prevent the possibility of the panel shattering.
Contact your local Service Force Centre.
