The control knobs may be removed for cleaning.

side of the knob stem. One of the grooves
contains a spring clip and the other
groove is clear. Locate the molded rib

ammonia and water (1/2 cup of
ammonia to one gallon of water). Rinse
with clean water.
Blue/gold heat stains can be lessened
with a metal polish but are usually
permanent. To minimize staining, avoid
excessive use of high heat setting and use

than two inches from the surface burner.
