Convection Steam Oven Cavity Rusting


  • Convection Steam Oven (CSO) rusting
  • Prevent rust forming in the CSO
  • Remove rust from the CSO oven cavity


  • Water not wiped out after cooking
  • Water left in unit after use


Rust may form in the Convection Steam Oven (CSO) oven cavity if the water is not wiped out after use.

  • After using any steam function, wipe the interior with a soft cloth.
  • Leaving the door ajar, turn the oven to Convection at 85° for 15 minutes to dry the interior.
  • This should be done after every use to prevent rusting.
  • If surface rust has formed, clean the area with a mild abrasive (for example, Bar Keepers Friend) and a soft cloth.

If these steps do not resolve the issue, no further customer troubleshooting advice is available. Contact Factory Certified Service to schedule an appointment for repair.
