                • Routine maintenance for your gas cooktop.

                  We recommend cleaning the cooktop when it becomes unsightly. Wipe away spills on a timely basis so that spills do not become hardened and difficult to remove.

                  View our How-to-Videos to learn how to care for your gas cooktop.

                  Please also refer to the GAS COOKTOPS – CLEANING & CARE SECTION for additional information.

                  It is hard to ignite the gas rings – burners are not igniting or there is a constant clicking sound.

                  The burner cap that covers the igniter may have become slightly displaced, thus making it difficult to ignite the gas rings. Check that all burner caps are properly placed.

                  The igniter ports may be dirty. Carefully wipe the igniter with a cotton swab dampened with water after the igniter has cooled down. Gently scrape soil off with a toothpick. Avoid exposing the igniters to excessive water as a damp igniter may not light up. Remove any lint that may remain after cleaning.

                  Ignition will be quicker if a cooking pan is in place on the grate. Ignite the gas at full and once alight, turn down to around 50%. It should lock on within 6 seconds.

                  The main gas supply may not be turned on. Check to ensure that it is turned on.

                  Does the burner click when the burner knob is in the “on” position? If yes, you may have a wiring issue at the outlet that the appliance is connected to. Turn off the main gas supply and contact a qualified electrician to fix this.

                  Does the burner click when the burner knob is in the “off” position? If yes, check for the following:

                  • Burner caps are properly placed and the igniter is not wet or dirty.
                  • Check to see if the regulator supplied with the unit is installed properly. The arrow on the regulator should be pointing to the appliance. Please call a professional installer or schedule a service visit if the regulator has not been installed properly.

                  Burner keeps making a clicking sound.

                  The burner caps may have been moved. Make sure the burner caps are properly positioned.

                  The burner ports may be wet or clogged with food particles. Make sure the burner port is dry. Clear clogged burner ports with a wire or straightened paper clip.

                  Igniters may be damp. Dry the igniters with a dry cotton swab. Remove any lint that remains after drying.

                  The gas shut-off valve may be off. Check to make sure it is on and that the gas supply to the building is not off.

                  Installing an oven below the gas cooktop.

                  Any Bosch oven can be installed below any Bosch cooktop (gas, electric, or induction). The following standards are required for installation:

                  • Countertop height of 36”
                  • Toe kick height of 4.75” (includes base plate)
                  Please refer to the installation manuals for the cooktop and oven for additional information on feasibility.

                  Gas flames are too high or are uneven.

                  The burner caps may not be installed properly or may have been moved. Make sure the burner caps are properly positioned.

                  The regulator supplied with the unit may not be installed. Please ask your professional installer to install it or schedule a service visit.

                  A gas smell is coming from my cooktop.

                  The burner knobs may not be completely turned off. Turn the knobs to the “off” position. If the smell does not go away after doing this, turn the main gas supply off and schedule a service visit.

                  Does the smell disappear when the burner is lit? It is normal to smell gas for up to four seconds after igniting the burner. The smell will go away after the burner is lit. If the smell does not go away when the burner is lit, turn the main gas supply off and schedule a service visit.

                   
                • Cleaning and care instructions for your gas cooktop.

                  We recommend wiping away spills on a timely basis so that spills do not become hardened and difficult to remove. View our How-to-Videos to learn how to care for your gas cooktop.

                  Warning: Do not use any cleaning agent while the surface is hot. The resulting fumes may be hazardous to your health and result in death or injury.

                  The entire cooktop can be safely cleaned when it is cooled down by wiping with a soapy sponge, rinsing and then drying.

                  To clean stubborn messes: Remove all pots, pans and utensils and turn off the cooktop. Remove grates once they have cooled down. Grates are heavy so use care when handling them. Use a mild cleaning agent with a clean, soft cloth, rinse and then dry.

                  To clean stainless steel: Wipe with the grain when cleaning stainless steel. Use a mild, non-abrasive cleaning agent or stainless steel cleaner with a soft cloth. Wipe dry to avoid water marks. Do not use cleaning materials that contain chlorine since it is corrosive to stainless steel. Warning: Some stainless steel cleaners are known to have negative effects on materials other than stainless steel. Make sure to apply stainless steel cleaner to stainless steel components only!

                  To clean burner bases: Remove all pots, pans and utensils and turn off the cooktop. Remove grates once they have cooled down. Grates are heavy so use care when handling them. Use a mild cleaning agent and hot water with a soft cloth, rinse and then dry. A stiff nylon tooth brush may be used to clean port openings. Do not scratch or gouge the port openings and do not utilize a toothpick that may break off.

                  To clean the burner cap: Remove all pots, pans and utensils and turn off the cooktop. Remove grates once they have cooled down. Grates are heavy so use care when handling them. Use hot, sudsy water with a soft cloth, rinse and then dry. Non-abrasive cleaners, and liquid cleaners may also be used. Dry the burner cap thoroughly after cleaning. Do not soak burner caps.

                  To clean control knobs: To remove knobs, simply lift them straight up. Use hot, sudsy water with a soft cloth, rinse and then dry. Do not soak the knobs or use abrasive cleaners and scrubbers.

                  To clean grates: Remove all pots, pans and utensils and turn off the cooktop. Remove grates once they have cooled down. Grates are heavy so use care when handling them. Use a mild cleaner to clean the grates with a soft cloth, rinse and then dry. Blisters and chips on grates are common due to their exposure to extreme temperatures and rapid temperature changes. Acidic and sugar-laden spills deteriorate the enamel, so remove these spills as soon as safely possible. Abrasive cleaners can mar the grates. Do not clean grates in a self-cleaning oven.

                  To clean igniters: Carefully wipe the igniter with a cotton swab dampened with water after the igniter has cooled down. Gently scrape soil off with a toothpick. Avoid exposing the igniters to excessive water as a damp igniter may not light up. Remove any lint that may remain after cleaning.

                  Cleaners to always avoid: Do not use flammable cleaners.

                  Induction vs. Gas and Electric

                  In general, induction cooktops boil water and warm up food much faster than gas and electric cooktops.

                  Induction cooktops are also more energy efficient than gas and electric because the heat is distributed directly to the pot. This results in better simmering, less heat in the kitchen, and more precision when cooking.

                  Induction cooktops are ideal for heating up food quickly, boiling water quickly and precise cooking techniques. The AutoChef feature also add to the cooking experience.

                  Advantage of owning an induction cooktop with higher wattage.

                  Induction cooktops with higher wattage have more power, which means that it heats pans faster.

                  Ventilation required for induction cooktops.

                  The ventilation required for induction cooktops is the same as that required for any other type of cooktop. In general, it is ideal to have the ventilation hood extend 3” on both sides of the cooktop for optimal performance.

                  Installing an oven below the induction cooktop.

                  Any Bosch oven can be installed below any Bosch cooktop (gas, electric, or induction*). The following standards are required for installation:

                  • Countertop height of 36”
                  • Toe kick height of 4.75” (includes base plate)

                  Please refer to the installation manuals for the cooktop and oven for additional information on feasibility.

                • Cleaning and care instructions for your electric cooktop.

                  We recommend wiping away spills on a timely basis so that spills do not become hardened and difficult to remove. View our How-to-Videos to learn how to care for your electric cooktop.

                  Warning: Do not use any cleaning agent on the glass while the surface is hot. The resulting fumes may be hazardous to your health and result in death or injury. A blade scraper may be used while the cooktop surface is hot.

                  Wipe off spatters with a clean, damp sponge, cloth or paper towel. White vinegar may be used if smudges remain

                  To clean the glass ceramic area of the cooktop: Apply a small amount of glass ceramic cooktop cleaning cream to a soft, clean cloth. Wipe this on the cooktop surface (which has cooled down) and then buff with a clean, dry towel. You may use any appropriate glass ceramic cooktop cleaning cream.

                  To clean the metallic seal and control panel on the cooktop: Use a mild cleaning agent only with a soft cloth. Do not use any harsh or abrasive cleaning agents. The scraper, lemon juice and vinegar are also not suitable for use here as they may damage the control panel.

                  To clean hard water spots: Minerals in some water can be transferred onto the cooktop surface and cause stains. Apply undiluted white vinegar with a soft, clean cloth. Then, recondition with glass ceramic cooktop cleaning cream as noted above.

                  Cleaners to always avoid: Cleaners that contain ammonia or chlorine bleach, caustic cleaners (such as Easy Off®), abrasive cleaners, dishwashing agents, metal scouring pads, scrub sponges, soap-filled scouring pads, powdery cleaners, and flammable cleaners. These products may damage, scratch, and dull your cooktop.

                  The following items may be removed with a scraper while the cooktop is hot: Dry sugar, sugar syrup, milk, tomato spills, melted plastic film, foil. First, remove any cooking pans and utensils and turn off the cooktop. Wearing an oven mitt, hold scraper at a 30° angle, being careful to not gouge or scratch the glass. Push the loosened soil off the heated area with the scraper. After the cooktop surface has cooled, remove the loosened soil and apply glass ceramic cooktop cleaning cream as noted above.
