tips for your stove
Prolonging the life of your stove is
easy with a few routine maintenance tasks:
Knobs: Remove and clean range knobs
with a non-abrasive cleaner. This will
help to preserve the stenciling on the
knob. Replace any broken or illegible
knobs to make your range look new again.
Find replacement knobs for your model
range using our PartDetective.
Interior light: Most ovens have
an interior light. Oftentimes, the bulb
has been burned out for so long you may
not even realize you have one. The light
bulb is usually behind a small glass dome
near the upper left or right side of the
inside of the oven. You must remove the
glass dome to replace the bulb. Domes
are commonly attached to the back wall
by a retaining wire or a metal cover with
screws, or sometimes the lens just screws
into place and is removed by turning it
counter clockwise. Always turn the power
off to the stove when changing the bulb,
and wear sturdy gloves when trying to
unscrew the light bulb in case it breaks.
Find common bulbs in our range/stove/oven
For harder to find bulbs, use our PartDetective.
Broiler pan: If your oven broiler
pan is missing, or if it has gotten so
soiled you can't clean it anymore, replace
it with this high-quality, low-priced
Control panel: You can clean any
porcelain stovetop or glass range/oven
control panel with a non-abrasive cleanser
or glass cleaner. Watch out for some "cream
type" cleansers as they often have
tiny abrasive particles in them, which
can damage your stovetop or control panel.
For safe cleaning, we recommend Appliance
Polish & Cleaner.
Drip pans and bowls: Drip pans and bowls
serve multiple functions for a range.
They catch food and spills, they help
radiate heat back at the pan for better
efficiency, and they protect you from
accidentally touching internal components.
It's important never to cover them with
aluminum foil. Many electric ranges will
short out due to the aluminum making a
short circuit at the burner. And, the
foil may cover the oven vent usually found
at one of the burners. Try to clean the
drip pans with a household non-abrasive
cleanser. If they cannot be cleaned, you
can replace them with universal pans and
bowls from our range/stove/oven
Or, use our PartDetective
to order the original units for your model
NOTE: Some model ranges are equipped
with porcelain drip pans that can be placed
inside the oven and cleaned with the oven's
self-cleaning cycle. Check your owner's
manual to see if your model has this feature.
