Burner Grates and Vent Grille
Lift off when cool. Grates and grille
should be washed regularly and, of
course, after spillovers. Wash them in hot,
soapy water and rinse with clean water.
Discoloration on the grates may also be
removed by using the provided cooktop
cleaning cream. Apply a drop or two on a
damp cloth and rub across the discolored
area. Rinse and dry. After cleaning,
replace the burner grates and make
sure they are positioned securely over
the burners.
To remove burned-on food, use a soap-
filled scouring pad.
Although they are durable, the grates will
gradually lose their shine, regardless of
the best care you can give them. This is
due to their continual exposure to high
temperatures. You will notice this sooner
with lighter color grates.
Do not operate a burner for an extended
period of time without cookware on the
burner grate. The finish on the grate may
chip without cookware to absorb the heat.
Before replacing the vent grille, make
sure the grille gasket is properly installed
around the downdraft vent opening, with
the word “FRONT” toward the knobs.
Replace the vent grille carefully over
the gasket.
When replacing the grates, make sure
they are positioned with their brass
locator feet toward the center.
NOTE: Do not clean the grates, grille or grille
gasket in a self-cleaning oven.
The grates, grille and grille gasket may be
cleaned in a dishwasher.
Appearance may vary.
Remove and replace the filter diagonally through
the vent opening.
When replacing the filter, make sure it rests, at an
angle, on the supports in the vent opening.
