Clean it regularly

Safely use self-cleaning

There are a lot of ranges that come with self-cleaning feature with their ovens. It is important to use it with caution because the oven can get seriously hot during the time. It is better to keep the windows open and stay at a distance. Once the self cleaning is done, give your oven at least a 6 hours cooling time before you start wiping the remains out using a cloth.

Inspect the burner

There are times when gas leaks through the burners because they are either damaged or deformed. Even a small spot on its coil means that the system is not in a good condition and there are chances that your electric system may fail, leading to the range repair work. So, inspect them and replace it occasionally to make sure that they are in top working condition.

Cleaning the knobs

 

How many times we spray the cleaning material under the knobs just to be sure that they are cleaned thoroughly? Well, it is a mistake that one should avoid at all costs. There are electric wires under the knobs and you might get in some serious trouble if you don’t pay attention to how you are cleaning it.
