Cleaning the Control Knobs or Control Panel - Combination Wall Oven

How to Clean the Control Knobs or Control Panel of Combination Wall Oven

IMPORTANT: Before cleaning, make sure all controls are off, and the cooktop is cool. Always follow label instructions on cleaning products.

Cleaning the Control Knobs

  • Pull knobs straight away from the control panel to remove.
    • To avoid damage to the cooktop controls, do not use steel wool, abrasive cleansers, or oven cleaner.
    • To avoid damage, do not soak knobs.
  • Soap, water, and a soft cloth or sponge are suggested first unless otherwise noted.

When replacing knobs, make sure knobs are in the Off position. On some models, do not remove seals under knobs.

Cleaning the Control Panel

IMPORTANT:  To avoid damage to porcelain surfaces, do not use soap-filled scouring pads, abrasive cleaners, steelwool pads, gritty washcloths, or abrasive paper towels.

Preferred Method:  Soap, water, and a soft cloth or sponge are suggested first unless otherwise noted.

Other Methods:  Glass cleaner, mild liquid detergent, all-purpose cleaner, or nonabrasive scrubbing pad. Rinse with clean water and dry with a soft, lint-free cloth.
