How to Clean a GE Profile Range Top

The most common GE Profile range in homes is the ceramic range top model. Although the GE Profile does come in stainless-steel and gas models, the ceramic range top has special cleaning needs. The GE Profile ceramic range top requires a special cleaning cream for everyday cleaning as well as cleaning heavy spills. One of the challenges in cleaning a ceramic top is preventing streaks from the cleaning cream. It is a good idea to clean the GE Profile range top every day to keep the appliance looking new and working efficiently.

Daily Cleaning

Step 1

Test the GE Profile range top's temperature before cleaning. Allowing it to cool will protect you from accidental burns and also keep the cleaner from streaking the range top.

Step 2

Shake the ceramic cleaning cream well, and apply a few drops to the range top surface.

Step 3

Wipe the range top clean with paper towels or a dry, soft sponge. Work in tight, circular motions for the best results. Working in small circles prevents streaking.

Cleaning Burned-On Residue

Step 1

Shake the cleaner well, and apply a few drops directly over the burned-on residue.

Step 2

Scrub the residue with a soft, scratchless scrub pad. Apply slight pressure while scrubbing, and work in tight, circular motions.

Step 3

Wipe the area dry with paper towels. Repeat the scrubbing process if necessary, applying more cream to the soiled area.

Cleaning Heavy Residue

Step 1

Apply a few drops of the cleaning cream on the heavily burned-on area. Spread the cream with a paper towel to cover the entire area.

Step 2

Hold a razor blade at a 45-degree angle. Apply slight pressure and scrape the residue loose from the range top. Continue the scraping process until all the residue is loose. Apply a few more drops of cream as necessary.

Step 3

Wipe up the residue with a dry paper towel. Apply a few more drops of cream over the area, and clean as you would for daily cleaning.

Warning

  • Do not use heavy abrasives or steel-wool pads on the range top. These will cause unrepairable scratches.
