Manual Cleaning – Always/Never
- Before any manual cleaning or maintenance, first wait for the oven to cool down to a safe temperature to touch, then turn its power supply off at the wall.
- Read these cleaning instructions and the ‘Safety and warnings’ section before you start cleaning your oven.
- To prevent soiling from becoming ‘baked on’ and stubborn, we recommend removing any easy-toreach spills, food or grease stains from the oven cavity enamel after each use.
- Always clean the inner glass pane before starting a Self Clean cycle (where available). Failure to do this will mean that residue will bake on and be impossible to remove.
- Always remove oven shelves before starting a Self Clean cycle (where available).
- Never use a steam cleaner.
- Never store flammable substances in the oven.
- Never use abrasive or harsh cleaners, cloths, scouring pads or steel wool. Some nylon scourers may also scratch. Check the label first.
- Never use oven cleaner on catalytic panels or in a pyrolytic oven.
- Never leave alkaline (salty spills) or acidic substances (such as lemon juice or vinegar) on the oven surfaces.
- Never use cleaning products with a chlorine or acidic base.

|The oven does not work but the display is lit.
|The oven is set for automatic cooking.
|The lights do not come on when I open the oven door.
|The oven light bulb(s) have blown. Replace the light bulb(s).

|A glass pane in the oven door has cracked, chipped, or shattered.
|Incorrect cleaning or the edge of the glass hitting against something. You must NOT use the oven. Call your Authorized Repairer or Customer Care.
|I can feel hot air blowing out of the vents after I have turned the oven off.
|This is normal. For safety reasons the cooling fans will continue to run even when you have turned the function dial to ‘Off’. The fans will switch off automatically when the oven has cooled.
|The oven fan comes on when I select a function that does not use a fan (eg bake or classic bake)
|This is normal. The fan comes on while the oven is preheating. It may turn off when the oven has reached the set temperature. Wait until a long tone sounds and the temperature dial halo turns white: the oven will then be ready to use.
|The oven has reached the set temperature but the temperature dial halo is still red (indicating that the oven is not ready to use).
|This is normal: when heating up from cold, your oven is designed to initially heat to a temperature somewhat higher than what you have set. This is to provide optimal baking conditions right from the start. Wait until a long tone sounds and the temperature dial halo turns white: the oven will then be ready to use.
|The oven is heating but the display is dark.
|The oven is set to ‘Display off’ option. To quit the ‘Display off’ option, touch and hold the cancel control until the display shows the time of day.

|The oven sounds a tone when I try to turn the temperature dial OFF or below a certain temperature.
|This is normal: for food safety reasons, the oven functions have factory-set minimum temperature settings. The temperature dial itself cannot be ‘turned off’. Selecting Off with the function dial will turn the oven off.
|The temperature dial halo never turns white when I use Broil
|This is normal: the halo stays red to indicate that the broil element provides instant radiant heat.
|The displays work, and the function and temperature dials halos come on but the oven does not heat up.
|The oven is in ‘Demo’ mode. Call Customer Care.
|During a Self Clean cycle, the oven is louder than usual.
|This is normal: the oven’s cooling fans operate at their highest speed.
