Hi to you from David, 'The Famous Forry'
Yes you can remove the plastic tray for cleaning purposes if you wish. The tray is just clipped on but be carefull around the electrical connections and do not bang the pipework around. It may be safer to turn off your appliance whilst you do this. Best wishes regards David. 'The Famous Forry'
Do I just lift the tray up - quite a degree of force must be required to unclip it?
Yes it pills off. You can use a screw driver to help loosen the clips and pull at the same time.
