The best way to ensure that your oven will continue to function at a high level is to clean and maintain it daily. Only use Turbochef oven cleaner to avoid damaging oven components and voiding the warranty. Protective eyewear, rubber gloves, oven cleaner, water, a nylon scrub pad, and a cleaning towel are all you'll need to clean your oven. To begin, you'll need to turn the oven off by pressing the "back" key. The oven will then begin to cool down. This will take approximately 90 minutes. Do not attempt to clean the oven while it's cooling down. The oven operates at 500 degrees Fahrenheit and may cause injury if not allowed to cool properly. Next, make sure the interior of the oven has cooled and then take out the wire rack. Now, the wire rack can be washed, rinsed, and sanitized. Next, you're going to lift the IR element, but make sure it's totally cooled down to avoid injury. Use a damp towel to remove any large particles from the oven. Then spray the oven cleaner on the three walls and on the inside of the door. Allow it to penetrate for five minutes. Be sure never to saturate the bottom of the oven with oven cleaner or water. Using your nylon scrub pad, clean the oven door and cavity. Do not spray cleaner directly on the top and bottom of the oven. Instead, spray the cleaner on a damp towel and apply manually. Next, wipe down the oven door, the cavity, and the element with a damp towel. For more stubborn spots, use a non-metallic scrubbing sponge. Spray water sparingly into the oven to rinse the cleaner out. Next, wipe the area on the outside of the oven where the lower access panel is located, however do not spray any chemical in this area. We recommend you apply a light coat of Turbochef Oven Guard to the interior cavity and the inside of the door panel. Simply spray Oven Guard on a towel and wipe down the interior of the oven and inside the door panel. It is important not to have any excess puddles or excess Guard in the bottom of the oven cavity. And that's it, you're done cleaning the inside of the oven, so lower the bottom element, replace the wire rack by sliding it onto the support shelves, and then replace the lower access panel. Lastly, wipe down the oven exterior with a clean, damp towel. Now, the oven is ready to be turned on and ready to be put back to work.
