INTRODUCTION
WARNING: THIS APPLIANCE MUST BE EARTHED
RATING PLATE
The cable must be routed away from potentially hot
areas marked by X in the diagram below.
This is situated on the front frame of the appliance
and can be seen upon opening the top cavity door.
Alternatively the rating plate may also be found on
the back or top of some models (where applicable).
The appliance must be protected by a suitably rated
fuse or circuit breaker. The rating of the appliance is
given on the rating plate.
Do not remove the rating plate from the appliance
as this may invalidate the guarantee.
INSTALLATION
To move the appliance, open the main oven door,
and lift the appliance by holding inside the top of the
compartment.
If your appliance has been damaged in transit,
contact your supplier immediately. DO NOT attempt
to install it.
Your appliance left the factory fully packaged to
protect it from damage. If it is delivered without
packaging and damage has occurred, the
manufacturer cannot accept responsibility. Contact
you supplier for advice.
Once the packaging has been removed the appliance
should only be moved by hand. DO NOT use a sack
barrow or any other aid to lift the appliance as
damage may occur.
This is a type X appliance which means it is freestanding and can be fitted with cabinets on one or
both sides. It may also be fitted in a corner setting.
Connection to the electricity supply must be carried
out by a qualified electrician/competent person.
Ensure that the appliance is standing level.
The electrical connection should be made using a
double pole isolating switch (cooker socket) with at
least 3mm contact separation in all poles. The cable
must have conductors of sufficiently high crosssectional area to prevent overheating and
deterioration.
Side walls which are above hob level should be
protected by heat resistant non-combustible material
and MUST NOT be nearer than 40mm to the hob
side.
A nominal air gap of 2mm all around the appliance is
required to enable the appliance to be moved into
position. It is recommended that proprietary trims are
fitted to protect the worktops of either side of the
appliance. These are available from most DIY
stores.
The recommended cross-section area is six square
2
millimetres (6.00mm ).
Always ensure an air gap is maintained at hotplate
level. Tiles or other forms of deep wall covering
should not obscure this gap.
Air gap

GRILL AND OVEN FURNITURE
Overhanging surfaces or a cooker hood should be a
minimum of 685mm above the hob.
The following items of grill and oven furniture have
been supplied with the appliance.
1 grill pan
(311409401)
It is important to ensure that the appliance is level
after installation. Levelling feet are fitted to the
appliance to accommodate uneven floors.
GENERAL NOTES ON USING YOUR
APPLIANCE
1 grill pan handle
(311468100)
We suggest that you run the oven elements for 10 –
o
15 minutes at 220 C to burn off any residue from
their surfaces. The procedure should be repeated
with the grill for approximately 5 – 10 minutes.
During this period an odour may be emitted, it is
therefore advisable to open a window for ventilation.
ABOUT CONDENSATION AND STEAM
1 grill pan grid
(311419801)
When food is heated it produces steam similar to a
boiling kettle. The oven is vented to allow some of
this steam to escape. However, always stand back
from the appliance when opening the oven door to
allow any build up of steam or heat to release.
If the steam comes into contact with a cool surface
on the outside of the appliance, e.g. a trim, it will
condense and produce water droplets. This is quite
normal and is not caused by a fault on the appliance.
1 straight shelf for grilling
To prevent discolouration, regularly wipe away
condensation and also soilage from surfaces.
For your safety wallcoverings at the rear of the
appliance should be securely fixed to the wall.
OVEN INDICATOR NEON
The light will indicate whether the oven is switched
on, the neon also indicates when the set temperature
has been reached. The neon will turn on and off
during use to show that temperature is being
maintained.

THE CERAMIC HOB
CAUTION: DO NOT USE THE APPLIANCE IF THE CERAMIC GLASS IS DAMAGED. IF A FAULT OR CRACK
BECOMES VISIBLE DURING COOKING, DISCONNECT THE APPLIANCE IMMEDIATELY FROM THE
ELECTRICITY SUPPLY AND CONTACT YOUR LOCAL SERVICE FORCE CENTRE
USING THE HOB
·
For single hotplates, turn the control knob in
either direction to vary the heat setting.
·
The highest number represents the hottest
setting and the lowest number represents the
coolest setting. Chose a setting appropriate to
the quantity and type of food to be cooked.
Excessive switching may however be caused by the
use of an unsuitable saucepan or a saucepan which
is smaller than the heated area.
If excessive
switching occurs, discontinue use of the saucepan.
HINTS AND TIPS
·
Lift, rather than slide saucepans on and off the
heated areas. This will reduce the risk of
scratches and metal marks from saucepans with
aluminium bases. Metal marks can be easily
cleaned off providing they are not allowed to burn
on.
·
Follow any guidelines provided by the saucepan
manufacturer, particularly those relating to
recommended heat settings.
·
Avoid using thin, badly dented or distorted
saucepans. Those with uneven bases should not
be used.
·
To prolong the life of the hotplates:-
RECOMMENDED SAUCEPANS
For speed and economy only good quality saucepans
with flat bases and close fitting lids are
recommended.
The saucepan base should be
approximately the same size as the cooking area, a
base diameter of up to 225mm (9”) may be used on a
180mm (7”) heated area.
Ensure that new saucepans are well scrubbed to
remove edges and take off any deposits left from
manufacture.
Pressure cookers, preserving pans, etc., should
comply with the recommendations given above.
Traditional round bottomed Woks must not be used
even with a stand. Woks with flat-bottomed bases
are available and do comply with the above
recommendations.
NOTE
Occasionally the heated areas may be seen to switch
ON and OFF when higher heat settings are being
used. This is due to a safety device which prevents
the glass from overheating. Some switching ON and
OFF when cooking at high temperatures, e.g. deep
fat frying is quite normal, causes no damage to the
hob and little delay in cooking times.
·
10
DO NOT place foil and plastic vessels on the
hot surface of the ceramic hob and DO NOT
use the surface for storage purposes.
·
·
·
·
Never use utensils with a skirt, e.g. a bucket.
·
Never use an asbestos mat.
·
Never leave the hotplates ON when not
covered with a saucepan.
5. Double frying chips.
Double frying will ensure good chips. First fry the
chips for a few minutes at 170°C/340°F to seal
the outside. Remove the chips from the oil.
Increase the temperature of the oil to
190°C/375°F to finish cooking and brown the
chips.
Ensure that the hob and saucepans are clean
and dry before the start of cooking to reduce
cleaning.
Chips may be kept for several hours after the first
frying before finishing off with the second frying.
Follow the cleaning instructions very closely to
keep the hob looking like new.
6. Frying temperatures
If spillage occurs with sugar solutions, e.g.
jams and syrups, it must be wiped from the
hob before it sets and becomes hard
otherwise damage to the hob will occur.

DEEP FAT FRYING
SPECIAL FRYING NOTE:
For safety purposes when deep fat frying, fill the pan
one third full of oil, DO NOT cover the pan with a lid
and DO NOT leave the pan unattended. In the
unfortunate event of a fire, switch the appliance OFF
at the electricity supply and cover the pan with a lid
or damp cloth to assist in smothering the flames.
PRESERVING
1. DO NOT use a pan that overlaps the perimeter of
the hob trim.
DO NOT use water on the fire. Leave the pan to cool
for at least 30 minutes before moving it.
2. To allow for a full rolling boil, the pan should be
no more than one third full when all the
ingredients have been added. It is better to use
two pans rather than overfill one, or use half
quantities.
DO NOT leave the fat or oil in the frying pan on the
hob to store it in case the hob is inadvertently
switched ON.
1. Preparing the food.
3. Use firm fruit or vegetables and wash well before
using.
Seal the food by coating with flour, egg and
breadcrumbs or batter. Do not use a basket with
batter coated foods as they will stick.
4. Preserving sugar gives clear jam, however
granulated sugar is cheaper and gives equally
good flavour.
2. Amount of oil.
For safety purposes fill the pan only one-third full
of oil.
5. Crystallization may be caused if sugar is not
completely dissolved before bringing jam to the
boil. Over boiling will affect the flavour, setting
properties and colour of the jam.
3. Testing the temperature of the oil.
It is advisable to use a thermometer to test the
temperature of the oil. Alternatively, drop a small
cube of bread into the oil which should brown in
just under a minute if the oil is at the correct
temperature of 190°C/375°F.
6. To test jam for setting:
If a jam thermometer is available, boil jam to
104°C. Marmalade should be boiled to 106°C.
Lower the food gently into the oil. Do not add
too much food at once or the temperature of the
oil will be reduced and may result in soggy,
greasy food.
If a jam thermometer is not available, remove
pan from heat, place sample of jam on a cold
dish and cool quickly (i.e. in a freezer or frozen
food storage compartment of a refrigerator).
When cold it will crinkle and hold the mark of a
finger run through it, if it is at setting point.
Turn the food if necessary; doughnuts float to the
surface so will not brown on the upperside if not
turned. Once cooked, drain the food on absorbent
paper.
7. The scum should be removed as soon as
possible after setting point has been reached.
Marmalade should be allowed to cool before
potting to prevent the peel rising.
4. Cooking the food.
11
THE GRILL
CAUTION – ACCESSIBLE PARTS MAY BECOME HOT WHEN THE GRILL IS IN USE.
CHILDREN SHOULD BE KEPT AWAY.
SELECTING THE GRILL
·
To operate the grill open the grill door and turn
the grill control in either direction.
·
The highest number represents the hottest
setting and the lowest number represents the
coolest setting.
·
Setting 5 represents the grill on Full.
At lower settings the grill may turn on and off
over time and you may prefer to use these
settings for keeping food warm. The food will
however continue to cook gently if the grill is
used for this purpose.
THE GRILL PAN AND HANDLE
The grill pan is supplied with a removable handle.
To insert the handle, press the button on the handle
with the thumb and pivot the handle slightly upwards
inserting the lip into the widest part of the bracket.
Move the handle towards the left, lower into position
and release the button.
Ensure the handle is positively located.
When removing the handle, press the button on the
handle with the thumb and pivot the handle slightly
upwards and towards the right to remove from the
bracket.
THINGS TO NOTE
THE GRILL DOOR MUST BE LEFT OPEN DURING
GRILLING.
DO NOT LEAVE APPLIANCE
WHEN GRILL IS IN USE.
UNATTENDED
ALWAYS USE THE GRILL CONTROL TO TURN
OFF THE GRILL
Some smoke from fat splashes may be evident as
the grill cleans itself.
Ensure your hand is protected when removing
the grill pan handle as the control panel trim and
grill element can become very hot.
ALWAYS REMOVE THE GRILL PAN HANDLE
DURING GRILLING.
12
GRILLING CHART
To correctly locate the grill pan on the shelf, ensure
that the cut out on the underside of the handle
bracket locates over the front bar of the shelf.
FOOD
To check the progress of the food being grilled, the
grill pan should be withdrawn on the shelf to attend to
food during cooking.
HINTS AND TIPS
·
Food should be thoroughly dried before grilling to
minimise splashing. Brush lean meats and fish
lightly with a little oil or melted butter to keep
them moist during cooking.
·
Adjust the height of the grilling grid and grill pan
runner position to allow for different foods.
·
Place food on the grill pan grid or directly onto
the grill pan base.
·
Accompaniments such as tomatoes and
mushrooms may be placed underneath the grid
when grilling meats.
·
When toasting bread use the shelf in position 1
with the grid in the high position and placing the
bread in the centre of the grid.
·
Preheat the grill on a full setting for a five minutes
before cooking. Adjust the shelf as necessary
during cooking.
·
The food should be turned over during cooking
as required.

THE MAIN FAN OVEN
USES OF THE FAN OVEN
The oven is heated by an element around the fan situated behind the back panel. The fan draws air from the oven
and the element heats the air which circulates in the oven via the vents in the back panel. The advantages of fan
oven cooking are:
PREHEATING
The fan oven quickly reaches its temperature, so it is not usually necessary to preheat the oven. Without
preheating however, you may find you need to add an extra 5 – 10 minutes on the recommended cooking times.
For recipes needing high temperatures, e.g. bread, pastries, scones, soufflés etc., best results are achieved if the
oven is preheated first. For best results when cooking frozen or cooked chilled ready meals always preheat the
oven first.
COOKING TEMPERATURES
Fan oven cooking generally requires lower temperatures than conventional cooking. Follow the temperature
recommended in the chart on page 16. As a guide reduce temperatures by about 20C° - 25°C for your own
recipes.
BATCH BAKING
The fan oven cooks evenly on all shelf levels, especially useful when batch baking.
SELECTING THE FAN OVEN
·
THINGS TO NOTE
Turn the main oven temperature control to the
required setting.
1. The main oven indicator neon will glow until the
oven has reached the desired temperature and
then go out. It will turn ON and OFF periodically
during cooking showing that the temperature is
being maintained.
14
TO FIT THE MAIN OVEN SHELVES
·
The shelves should be fitted with the straight rods
uppermost on the frame and the forms towards the
back of the oven. If not fitted correctly the anti-tilt
and safety stop mechanism will be affected.
It is recommended that when baking larger
quantities, the shelf positions should be evenly
spaced to suit the load being cooked. A slight
increase in cooking time may be necessary.
·
DO NOT place baking trays directly on the oven
floor as it interferes with the oven air circulation
and can lead to base burning; use the lower shelf
position.
·
The use of excessively high temperatures can
cause uneven browning. It may be necessary to
reduce temperatures slightly.
Refer to the
recommendations given in the oven cooking
chart on page 16.
HINTS AND TIPS
·
Arrange the shelves in the required positions
before switching the oven ON. Shelf positions
are numbered from the bottom upwards.
·
When cooking more than one dish in the fan
oven, place dishes centrally on different shelves
rather than cluster several dishes on one shelf,
this will allow the heat to circulate freely for the
best cooking results.
·
When batch baking one type of food e.g. Victoria
sandwich cakes, those of similar size will be
cooked in the same time.

The roasting temperatures and times given in the chart should be adequate for most joints, but slight adjustments
may be required to allow for personal requirements and the shape and texture of the meat. However, lower
temperatures and longer cooking times are recommended for less tender cuts or larger joints.
Wrap joints in foil if preferred, for extra browning uncover for the last 20 – 30 min. cooking time.

DEFROST FEATURE
USES OF DEFROST FEATURE
Small or thin fish fillets, frozen peeled prawns, cubed
or minced meat, liver, thin chops, steaks etc., can be
thawed in 1 – 2 hours.
This fan oven function defrosts most foods faster
than more conventional methods. It is particularly
suitable for delicate frozen foods which are to be
served cold e.g. cream filled gateaux, cakes covered
with icings or frostings, cheesecakes, biscuits,
scones, etc.
A 1kg/2¼lb oven ready chicken will be thawed in
approximately 5 hours. Remove the giblets as soon
as possible during the thawing process.
Joints of meat up to 2kg/4½lb in weight can be
thawed using the defrost function.
It is preferable to thaw fish, meat and poultry slowly
in the fridge. However, this process can be
accelerated by using the defrost function.
ALL JOINTS OF MEAT AND POULTRY MUST BE
THAWED THOROUGHLY BEFORE COOKING.
ALWAYS COOK THOROUGHLY IMMEDIATELY
AFTER THAWING.
SELECTING DEFROST
·
HINTS AND TIPS
Turn the main oven temperature control to the
defrost setting.
·
When defrost is selected, the oven indicator neon
may come ON. It will stay ON until the oven
reaches room temperature and then go OFF.
·
It may turn ON and OFF periodically during
defrosting to maintain a steady room
temperature, inside the oven.
·
Place the frozen food in a single layer where
possible and turn it over half way through the
defrosting process.
·
The actual speed of defrosting is influenced by
room temperature. On warm days defrosting will
be faster than on cooler days.
·
DO NOT leave food at room temperature once it
is defrosted. Cook raw food immediately or store
cooked food in the fridge, once it has cooled.
THINGS TO NOTE
Care must always be taken when handling foods in
the home. Always follow the basic rules of food
hygiene to prevent bacterial and microbial growth
and cross contamination when defrosting, preparing,
cooking, cooling and freezing foods.
18
CARE AND CLEANING
ALWAYS SWITCH OFF THE ELECTRICITY
SUPPLY AT THE MAIN WALL SWITCH AND
ALLOW THE COOKER TO COOL BEFORE
CLEANING.
3. Wipe off residues of cleaner with another damp
paper towel and polish dry with a soft cloth.
CLEANING MATERIALS
Before using any cleaning materials on your
appliance, check that they are suitable and that their
use is recommended by the manufacturer.
If Hob Brite is unavailable, one or more of the
cleaning agents below may be used temporarily:
Cleaners that contain bleach should NOT be used as
they may dull the surface finishes. Harsh abrasives
should be also be avoided. Multi-surface antibacterial cleaning products should not be used on the
ceramic hob or on the surrounding trims.
CLEANING THE CERAMIC HOB
Make sure the ceramic glass is cool before cleaning.
It is important to clean the ceramic hob daily to
prevent soilage being burnt on.
a) Cif Cream Cleaner
b) Baking Soda
Take care to avoid the hob trims when cleaning the
ceramic glass as they may be damaged by the
cleaning agents recommended.
TO REMOVE MORE STUBBORN MARKS
1. Bar-Keepers Friend may be used to clean off
more
stubborn
stains
or
to
remove
discolourations.
It may be necessary to rub the marks hard for
several minutes.
2. Use a plastic pad specially for non-stick
saucepans with Bar-Keepers Friend for removal
of more stubborn soilage.
DAILY CLEANING
Use the recommended Hob Brite Cleaner daily. If
soilage is not allowed to burn on it will be much
easier to clean off.
1. Apply a small amount of Hob Brite in the centre
of each area to be cleaned.
TO REMOVE BURNT ON SOILAGE
We strongly recommend the use of a Ceramic Hob
Scraper (incorporating a single edge razor blade) to
remove spillage on the hob, in particular sugar
solutions, which if not removed can cause permanent
damage.
2. Dampen a clean paper towel or a plastic pad
made specially for non-stick saucepans and rub
vigorously until all marks are removed. This may
take a few minutes.
1. Make sure the ceramic glass is cool.
2. Use a ceramic hob scraper with care at an angle
of 30° to remove as much soilage as possible.
3. Use Bar-Keepers Friend or Hob Brite to finish off
as directed above.
19
TO REMOVE DISCOLOURATIONS OR
WHITE AND SILVER MARKS
CLEANING THE OUTSIDE OF THE
APPLIANCE
These marks sometimes give the impression of being
in or underneath the hob glass. They can almost
always be removed provided they have not become
excessively burnt on. Follow the instructions under
‘To Remove more Stubborn Marks’, on page 19.
DO NOT use abrasive cleaning materials e.g. Hob
Brite, Brillo pads or scourers on painted or printed
finishes as damage may occur. Regularly wipe over
the control panel, oven doors and cooker sides using
a soft cloth and liquid detergent.
To prevent streaking on stainless steel models finish
with a soft cloth. Any spillage on the stainless
steel finish must be wiped off immediately.
Stainless Steel cream cleaners are abrasive and
should be avoided as they may dull the surface
finish.
If this is unsuccessful, make up a paste of one part
water to three parts Cream of Tarter and leave on the
discoloured areas overnight. The marks should be
easily removable the next day provided they have not
been excessively burnt on. The paste should be
thoroughly washed off afterwards.
HINTS AND TIPS
TO REDUCE HOB SOILAGE:
·
Make sure the bottom of the saucepan and the
cooking area are clean and dry before cooking
begins.
·
Ensure saucepans are large enough
accommodate food to avoid boil overs.
·
If possible, wipe up spills and splatters as they
occur, but take care to avoid steam burns.
·
Avoid using a dishcloth or sponge to clean the
hob. These may leave a layer of soiled detergent
on the hob surface which will burn and discolour
the next time the hob is used.
·
Avoid the use of:
to
DO NOT ATTEMPT TO REMOVE ANY OF THE
CONTROL KNOBS FROM THE PANEL AS THIS
MAY CAUSE DAMAGE AND IS A SAFETY
HAZARD.
●Household detergents and bleaches.
●Impregnated plastic or nylon pads that are not
described as suitable for non-stick saucepans.
●Brillo pads, Ajax pads, steel wool pads.
●Chemical oven cleaners, e.g. aerosols and oven
pads.
●Rust stain, bath and sink stain removers.
·
Any of the above products may cause
damage to the hob.
·
It is dangerous to mix different cleaning products.
The chemicals in them may react with each other
with hazardous results.
·
SOILAGE FROM SUGAR SOLUTIONS MUST
BE REMOVED FROM THE HOB BEFORE THE
SYRUP HAS SET OTHERWISE DAMAGE TO
THE HOB SURFACE WILL OCCUR.
·
Avoid placing plastic items, foil or dishes on the
hot surface as this will cause damage to the hob.
CLEANING THE
FURNITURE
GRILL
AND
OVEN
All removable parts, except the grill pan handle can
be washed in the dishwasher.
The grill pan, grill pan grid and oven shelves may be
cleaned using a soap impregnated steel wool pad.
Soaking first in hot soapy water will make cleaning
easier.
20
CLEANING INSIDE
COMPARTMENTS
THE
GRILL/OVEN
·
Follow the recommendations below to keep oven
soilage to a minimum.
The sides, and back panel of the main oven are
coated with special Stayclean linings.
·
The vitreous enamel main oven, interior main oven
door and grill compartment can be cleaned using
normal oven cleaners or aerosol oven cleaners with
care. Ensure that the manufacturers instructions are
followed and that all parts are well rinsed afterwards.
Cook at the recommended temperatures. Higher
temperatures during roasting will increase
soilage. Try cooking at lower temperatures for
an increased length of time, you will save energy
and often the joint is more tender.
·
Use minimal, if any, extra oil or fat when roasting
meat, potatoes only require brushing with fat
before cooking. Extra fat in the oven during
roasting will increase splashing and soilage.
·
It is not necessary to add water to a meat tin
when roasting. The water and the fat juices from
the joint create excessive splattering during
cooking, even at normal temperatures, as well as
causing condensation.
·
Covering joints during cooking will also prevent
splashing onto the interior surfaces. Removing
the covering for the last 20-30 minutes will allow
extra browning if required. Some large joints and
turkeys especially benefit by this method of
cooking, allowing the joint to cook through before
the outside is over-browned.
Aerosol cleaners must not be used on the
Stayclean linings and must not come into contact
with elements as this may cause damage.
For advice on how to keep the Stayclean linings in
good condition see 'Care of Stayclean Surfaces'.
CARE OF STAYCLEAN SURFACES
Stayclean surfaces destroy splashes of food and fats
when the oven temperature is raised to around
220°C.
It is a good idea to run the oven for an hour or two
per week to ensure continued good performance
from the Stayclean finish.
HINTS AND TIPS
·
Manual cleaning of the Stayclean surfaces IS
NOT recommended.
Damage will occur if
abrasives or aerosol sprays of any kind are used.
·
Slight discolouration and polishing of the
Stayclean surfaces may occur in time. This
DOES NOT affect the Stayclean properties in
any way.
·
A good time to allow the oven to run on is after
the weekly roast. After removing the roast, turn
the oven up to 220°C and allow to run for an hour
or so. It is important NOT to allow a build-up of
soilage as this can prevent the Stayclean
surfaces from working.

TO REPLACE THE OUTER GLASS
CLEANING THE DOOR GLASS
1. Holding the oven glass with both hands, gently
place the locators into the holes of the brackets
at the bottom of the oven door.
To prevent damaging or weakening the
door glass panels avoid the use of the
following:
·
Household detergents and bleaches
·
Impregnated pads unsuitable for nonstick saucepans
·
Brillo/Ajax pads or steel wool pads
·
Chemical oven pads or aerosols
·
Rust removers
·
Bath/Sink stain removers
2. Push the top of the oven glass towards the oven
door, ensuring the screw location holes line up.
3. Hold the glass in place with one hand and insert
the cross head screws into the location holes
with the other hand. Give the screws one turn to
ensure the glass is secure.
4. Tighten the screws positively with a Pozidrive
screwdriver before closing the oven door.
Do not attempt to use the oven without the
glass being in place.
CLEANING BETWEEN THE OUTER AND
INNER DOOR GLASS
If the door glass panel becomes chipped or
has deep scratches the glass will be
weakened and must be replaced to prevent
the possibility of the panel shattering.
Please contact your local Service Force
Centre who will be pleased to advise
further.
The outer door glass is removable for cleaning.
TO REMOVE THE OUTER GLASS
1. Open the oven door slightly to gain access to the
two cross head screws on the top of the oven
door.
2. Loosen the two screws using a Pozidrive
screwdriver.
TO CLEAN THE INNER GLASS DOOR
PANEL
Clean the inner door glass panel using a soft cloth
and hot water to which a little washing up liquid has
been added. If the inner panel is heavily soiled, Hob
Brite may be used. Do not use abrasive cleaning
materials on the door glass. Ensure that all parts are
well rinsed and thoroughly dried before attempting to
replace the glass.
3. Hold the door glass securely in place with one
hand before removing the screws completely with
the other hand.
4. Using both hands, gently tilt the top of the door
glass towards you, lift slightly to disengage the
locators from the two bottom brackets.
5. Clean the outer and inner glass using hot soapy
water or Hob Brite cleaner may be used with care.
DO NOT use Hob Brite on the Stainless Steel or
painted finishes. DO NOT try to clean the foil
which is inside the door. The foil is there to help
keep the door cool, if it is damaged it will not work.
Ensure that all parts are well rinsed and
thoroughly dried before attempting to replace the
outer door.
