  • Classic (formerly Built-In) condenser cleaning

Steps to Verify Issue:


Before cleaning the condenser, turn off power at the control panel. Wear gloves to avoid injury from sharp condenser fins.

  1. The condenser is behind the flip-up grille. To access, pull out on the bottom edge of the grille and rotate upward.
  2. Use a soft bristle brush and vacuum to remove dust and lint from the condenser.
  3. Clean the condenser every three to six months. Refer to the illustration below.


To avoid damaging the condenser fins, vacuum in the direction of the fins.


Failure to clean the condenser could result in temperature loss, mechanical failure, or damage.


Refer to the product Use and Care Guide for further information.
