 How to fix

1. Exterior

How should the exterior of the unit be cleaned?

Only clean the outside of the unit with a soft, wet cloth and mild detergent, if necessary. Do NOT use chemical cleaners or abrasive pads.. This should be done at least once a week, or more often if needed.

2. Interior

How should the interior of the unit be cleaned?

Do NOT use chemical cleaners to clean the inside of the unit. Steam generated by cooking will pick up this residue and taint food. To clean the inside of the unit simply heat up a bowl of water for 2-3 minutes. The steam will soften and loosen food. After doing this, wipe out the inside of the unit with a warm, wet cloth.
