Care and Cleaning

Stainless Steel Hood

For your safety

Before servicing or cleaning the unit, switch power off at the service panel and lock the service panel to prevent power from being switched on accidentally. If the service panel cannot be locked, fasten a tag or prominent warning label to the panel.

Metal grease filters

Clean the grease filter after 30 hours of “on” time. A signal light will alert you when 30 hours has passed.

Remove the grease filters and wash them either by hand or in the dishwasher using non-abrasive soap.

To clean, swish the filters in hot soapy water or wash them in the dishwasher. Do not use abrasive cleansers.

Front

Note: To remove filters push them back and down using the knob.

For proper operation, be sure to use the lower set of filter holders.

Charcoal filters

(on some models)

If the model is not vented to the outside, the air will be recirculated through disposable charcoal filters that help remove smoke and odors.

The charcoal filters should be replaced when they are noticeably dirty or discolored (usually after 6 to 12 months, depending on hood usage).

NOTE:

DO NOT rinse, or put charcoal filters in an automatic dishwasher.

The charcoal filters cannot be cleaned.

They must be replaced.

Order Charcoal Filter Kit (3 filters) WB02X10731.

This kit can be ordered from your GE Supplier.

Note: To remove the metal filters, push them back and down using the knob. Push the charcoal filters back and down using the tab.

Charcoal Filters

Front

Metal Filters

For proper operation, be sure to use the charcoal filters in the upper set of filter holders and metal filters in the lower set of filter holders.

To change the light bulbs:

Remove the trim ring by turning it counterclockwise.

2.

Grasp the bulb on the edges and pull it straight out.

These 12 volt, 20 watt halogen bulbs are available at specialty lighting stores. Ask for GE bulb or equivalent: Q20MR16/C/CG40–BAB.

Stainless steel surfaces

Do not use a steel-wool pad; it will scratch the surface.

To clean the stainless steel surface, use a hot, damp cloth with a mild detergent suitable for stainless steel surfaces. Use a clean, hot, damp cloth to remove soap. Dry with a dry, clean cloth.

If food soil remains, try a general kitchen cleaner, such as Fantastik®, Simple Green®, or Formula 409®.

For hard-to-clean soil, use a standard stainless steel cleaner, such as Bon-Ami® or Cameo®.

Apply cleaner with a damp sponge. Use a clean, hot, damp cloth to remove cleaner. Dry with a dry, clean cloth. Always scrub lightly in the direction of the grain.

After cleaning, use a stainless steel polish, such as Stainless Steel Magic®, Revere Copper and

Stainless Steel Cleaner®, or Wenol All Purpose

Metal Polish®. Follow the product instructions for cleaning the stainless steel surface.
