How to Clean the Top of a Frigidaire Gas Range

Frigidaire is a North American home appliance manufacturer. The company is well-known for its stoves, including a full line of gas ranges. Your Frigidaire gas range can become dirty through everyday use. Regular cleaning can keep the appliance clean, spotless and odor-free. Discover Frigidaire-approved methods of cleaning to avoid damaging your stove's various metal and plastic surfaces for a clean stovetop that sparkles like new.

Step 1

Clean the Frigidaire's control panel. Mix a mild soap solution using standard dish detergent and hot water in a bucket or dish. Gently grasp each plastic knob on the stove's panel and pull away from the panel to pop them off their metal shafts. Wipe each knob with the hot cleaning solution and a rag. Wipe down the actual panel. Avoid dripping soapy water into the exposed knob holes around the knob shafts. Replace the knobs after cleaning the panel by pushing the knobs back over the knob shafts.

Step 2

Wipe down the painted metal surfaces of the Frigidaire stovetop. Frigidaire recommends using a homemade cleaning solution consisting of equal parts white vinegar and water. This cuts through grease and grime without eating away at the stove's paint. Dampen a soft cloth or sponge in the solution and wipe all painted surfaces with the vinegar and water. Wait 10 minutes for heavily soiled areas before wiping with a rag moistened with fresh water.

Step 3

Use plain soapy water to clean any decorative chrome or stainless steel trim. Heavily soiled chrome or steel can be cleaned using a commercial stainless steel or chrome cleaner. Rinse thoroughly using a wet sponge or rag. Leaving soap or cleaning solution on the metal may result in dark blue stains once the metal heats up during standard stove use.

Step 4

Clean the gas grates and burner heads. Remove them from the Frigidaire appliance by pulling them out of their recessed grooves on the stovetop. Scrub with a sponge and hot soapy water. Soak the pieces if they are caked with burnt food and debris. Place in a gallon-sized bucket and fill with water. Mix in 1/4 cup ammonia and allow the pieces to sit in the solution for 30 to 60 minutes. Remove, rinse and scrub with hot soapy water.

Step 5

Dry the gas grates and burner heads with a dry rag. Replace on the Frigidaire stovetop. Resume use of the stove.
