COOKING RECOMMENDATIONS
Cooking
Tips
Bake or Convection Bake
Convection bake is the best function to use for baking on multiple racks. For best performance, see
“Convection Bake” on page 25.
Food placement
Allow at least 2 inches (5 cm) of space between bakeware for proper air circulation.
Broiling / Roasting
Broiling pan
For best results when broiling, use a broil pan with a broil pan insert designed to drain the fat from
the food, help avoid spatter, and reduce smoking. The broiler pan will catch grease spills, and the
insert helps prevent grease splatters.
If a broiler pan and insert are not supplied with this appliance, they may be purchased from Frigidaire.com.
Convection Cooking
Convection 
attributes
Convection cooking uses a fan to circulate hot air around the oven and food. It browns food more
evenly and reduces hot spots in the oven.
Convection saves time when using multiple racks or cooking several food items at once.
Convection bake
Reduce cooking temperature by 25° F (13-14° C) from the recipe unless the recipe is written for
convection baking.
Preheat the oven for best results.
Convection broil
Reducing the cooking temperature for convection broil is not recommended.
Broiling is direct heat cooking and will produce some smoke. If smoke is excessive, move the food
farther from the broiler element.
Convection roast
Convection roast is best for meats and does not require preheating for most meats and poultry.
Reducing the cooking temperature for convection roast is not recommended. Carefully follow your
recipe’s temperature and time recommendations, adjusting the cooking time if the recipe does not
specify convection roasting time.
Since convection roast cooks faster, cook time may be reduced by 25% to 40% depending on food
type. You can reduce cook times by 25% from the recommended time of your recipe, and check the
food at this time. If needed, continue cooking until the desired doneness is obtained.
Use a meat probe if available with your appliance. Meat probes are also available from most grocery
and home goods stores.
Arrange oven racks so large cuts of meat and poultry are on the lowest rack of the oven.
Do not cover foods when dry roasting - covering will prevent the meat from browning properly.
When cooking meats, use the broiler pan and insert or a roasting rack. The broiler pan will catch
grease spills and the insert helps prevent grease splatters. If you do not have one of these accessories, they may be purchased from Frigidaire.com.

Proper cookware
BEFORE SETTING SURFACE CONTROLS
Cookware Material Types
Gas surface burner types
The cookware material determines how evenly and quickly
heat is transferred from the surface burner to the pan
bottom. The most popular materials available are:
The cooktop is equipped with gas surface burners with
different BTU ratings. The ability to heat food quickly and in
large amounts increases as the burner size increases.
•
Aluminum - Excellent heat conductor. Some types of
food will cause it to darken (Anodized aluminum
cookware resists staining and pitting).
•
Small burners are best used for low-flame heating of
small amounts of food.
•
•
Copper - Excellent heat conductor but discolors easily
(See Aluminum).
Standard burners can be used for most surface cooking
needs.
•
•
Stainless - Slow heat conductor with uneven cooking
results. Is durable, easy to clean and resists staining.
•
Cast Iron - A slow heat conductor that retains heat very
well. Cooks evenly once cooking temperature is
reached.
The largest burner is best used for bringing large quantities of liquid rapidly up to temperature or when
preparing larger quantities of food. The large burner is
located at the right front position on the cooktop.
•
Porcelain-enamel on metal - Heating characteristics
will vary depending on base material.
•
Glass - Slow heat conductor.
Regardless of size, always select cookware that is suitable
for the amount and type of food being prepared. Select a
burner and set the flame size appropriately for the pan.
Never allow flames to extend beyond the outer edge of the
pan.
CAUTION
Do not place flammable items such as plastic salt and
pepper shakers, spoon holders, or plastic wrappings on
the cooktop when it is in use. These items could melt or
ignite. Potholders, towels or wooden spoons could catch
fire if placed too close to the range cooktop.
IMPORTANT
Do not place aluminum foil, or ANY material that can melt
on the range cooktop. If these items melt they may
damage the cooktop.
CAUTION
Do not straddle cookware over two burner areas unless
the cookware is specifically designed for that purpose.

The ability to heat food quickly and in large volumes
increases as the burner size increases. Your gas appliance
may be equipped with many different sized surface burners.
It is important to select cookware that is suitable for the
amount and type of food being prepared. Select a burner
and flame size appropriate for the cookware size.
•
The standard size burner or burners may be used for
most surface cooking needs.
•
Small burners are best used for low-flame heating of
small amounts of food.
•
Large burners are best for bringing large quantities of
liquid to temperature or heating larger quantities of
food.
CAUTION
Do not place flammable items such as plastic wrappings,
spoon holders, or plastic salt and pepper shakers on the
cooktop when it is in use. These items could melt or
ignite. Potholders, towels, or wooden spoons could catch
fire if placed too close to the surface burners.
Setting a surface burner:
1. Place cooking utensil on center of surface burner grate.
Be sure the cooking utensil rests stable on the burner
grate.
2. Push the burner’s surface control knob in and turn
counterclockwise out of the OFF position (Figure 7).
3. Release the surface control knob and rotate to the LITE
position ( ). Visually check that the burner has a
steady gas flame.
4. Once the surface burner has a flame, push the surface
control knob in and turn counterclockwise to the desired
flame size setting. Adjust the flame as needed using the
knob markings.
IMPORTANT
•
NEVER place or straddle a cooking utensil over two
different surface cooking areas at the same time
unless the cookware is specifically designed for the
purpose.
•
DO NOT cook with a surface control knob left in the
lite position ( ). The electronic ignitor will continue to
spark. Turn the control knob out of the lite position
and adjust the flame size.
•
Do not place aluminum foil, or ANY material that can
melt on the range cooktop. If items melt, they may
permanently damage the appearance of the cooktop.
16
Figure 7:
Surface control knob
NOTE
•
When setting a surface control knob to the lite
position, all of the electronic surface ignitors will spark
at the same time. However, only the surface burner
you are setting will ignite.
•
In the event of an electrical power outage, the surface
burners may be lit manually. To light a surface burner,
hold a lit match to the burner head, then slowly turn
the surface control knob to lite. Once the burner
ignites, push in and turn knob out of lite then to the
desired flame setting. Use caution when lighting
surface burners manually.
SETTING SURFACE CONTROLS
Set proper burner flame size
The color of the flame is the key to proper burner adjustment. A good flame is clear, blue and hardly visible in a
well-lighted room. Each cone of flame should be steady and
sharp. Adjust or clean the burner if flame is yellow-orange.
For most cooking: start on the highest setting and then
turn to a lower setting to complete the process. Use the
recommendations below as a guide for determining proper
flame size for various types of cooking (Figure 9).
For deep fat frying: use a thermometer and adjust the
surface knob accordingly. If the fat is too cool, the food will
absorb the fat and be greasy. If the fat is too hot, the food
will brown so quickly that the center will be under-cooked.
Do not attempt to deep fat fry too much food at once as the
food will neither brown nor cook properly.
Flame size
Type of cooking
High flame
Start most foods; bring water to a boil;
pan broiling
Medium flame
Maintain a slow boil; thicken sauces,
gravies; steaming
Low flame
Keep foods cooking; poaching; stewing
These settings are based on medium-weight metal or
aluminum pans with lids. Settings may vary when using
other types of pans.
Figure 9:
Recommended flame settings for cooking
CAUTION
Never extend the flame beyond the outer edge of the
cooking utensil. A higher flame wastes energy, and
increases your risk of being burned by the flame
(Figure 8).

Home Canning
Be sure to read and observe all the following points when
home canning with your appliance. Check with the USDA
(United States Department of Agriculture) Web site and be
sure to read all the information they have available as well
as follow their recommendations for home canning procedures.
•
Use only a completely flat bottom canner with no ridges
that radiate from the bottom center when home
canning. Heat is spread more evenly when the bottom
surface is flat. Use a straight-edge to check canner
bottom.
•
Make sure the diameter of the canner does not exceed
1 inch beyond the surface element markings or burner.
•
It is recommended to use smaller diameter canners on
electric coil and ceramic glass cooktops and to center
canners on the burner grates.
•
Start with hot tap water to bring water to boil more
quickly.
•
Use the highest heat seating when first bringing the
water to a boil. Once boiling is achieved, reduce heat to
lowest possible setting to maintain that boil.
•
Use tested recipes and follow instructions carefully.
Check with your local Cooperative Agricultural
Extension Service or a manufacturer of glass jars for
the latest canning information.
•
It is best to can small amounts and light loads.
•
Do not leave water bath or pressure canners on high
heat for an extended amount of time.
Figure 10: Griddle
The griddle is a versatile accessory that is perfect for
cooking foods that require large flat surfaces such as
pancakes, French toast, grilled sandwiches, bacon, and
also for cooking different foods at the same time.
After use, let the griddle cool before washing. Hand wash
with hot soapy water. Do not soak. Dry thoroughly. Do not
put a griddle in a dishwasher.
If you would like to purchase a griddle, you can order one
from Frigidaire.com.
Using the griddle:
Place the griddle securely on top of the burner grates.
Preheat the griddle for 5 minutes on medium to medium low
setting. Slow preheat ensures even heat distribution during
the cooking process. DO NOT preheat the griddle on HI
setting. Preheating on HI may warp the griddle and prevent
even heat distribution.

BEFORE SETTING OVEN CONTROLS
Oven Vent Location
Types of oven racks
The oven is vented as shown below. When the oven is on,
warm air is released through the vent. This venting is
necessary for proper air circulation in the oven and good
baking results. Do not block oven vent. Never close off the
openings with aluminium foil or any other material. Steam or
moisture may appear near the oven vent. This is normal.

Figure 11: Oven vent
WARNING
Protective Liners — Do not use aluminum foil or any
other material or liners to line the oven bottom, walls,
racks or any other part of the range. Doing so will alter the
heat distribution, produce poor baking results, and
possibly cause permanent damage to the oven interior.
Improper installation of these liners may result in risk of
electric shock or fire. During self clean, temperatures in
the oven will be hot enough to melt foil.
CAUTION
•
Always use pot holders or oven mitts when using the
oven. When cooking, the oven interior, oven exterior,
oven racks, and cooktop will become very hot which
can cause burns.
•
Remove all oven racks before starting a self clean
cycle. If oven racks are left inside the oven during a
cleaning cycle, the slide ability of the oven racks may
be damaged and all of the oven racks will lose their
shiny finish.
•
To prevent possible damage to the oven, do not
attempt to close the oven door until all the oven racks
are fully positioned back inside the oven cavity.
•
Flat oven racks may be used for most cooking needs
and may be placed in most oven rack positions.
•
The offset oven rack (some models) provides additional step down positions from the standard flat rack
design. The offset design positions the base of the rack
about ½ of a rack position lower than the flat rack and
may be used in most oven rack positions. To maximize
oven cooking space, place the bottom oven rack in the
lowest rack position for baking or roasting large cuts of
meat.
Removing, replacing, and arranging flat or offset
oven racks
Always arrange the oven racks when the oven is cool.
To remove - Pull the oven rack straight forward until it
reaches the stop position. Lift up front of oven rack slightly
and slide out.
To replace - Place the oven rack on the rack guides on
both sides of oven walls. Tilt the front of oven rack upward
slightly and slide the oven rack back into place. Be sure
oven racks are level before using.

Convection Roast
Convection roast combines a cook cycle with the convection fan and element to rapidly roast meats and poultry.
Heated air circulates around the meat from all sides, sealing in juices and flavors. Meats cooked with this feature are
crispy and brown on the outside while staying moist inside.
WARNING
Should an oven fire occur, close the oven door and turn the
oven off. If the fire continues, use a fire extinguisher. Do not put
water or flour on fire. Flour may be explosive.
CAUTION
Always use pot holders or oven mitts when using the oven.
When cooking, the oven interior, oven racks, and cooktop will

SETTING OVEN CONTROLS
Convection Roasting tips:
•
Preheating for convection roast will not be necessary for most meats and poultry.
•
Arrange oven racks so large cuts of meat and poultry are on the lowest rack of the oven.
•
Smaller roasts and poultry should be cooked using rack position 2 or 3.
•
Since convection roast cooks faster, you can reduce cook times as much as 25% from the recommended time of
your recipe (check the food at this time). Then if needed, increase cook time until the desired doneness is obtained.
•
Carefully follow your recipe’s temperature and time recommendations or refer to the convection roast recommendations for additional information.
•
Do not cover foods when dry roasting - covering will prevent the meat from browning properly.
•
When cooking meats use the broiler pan and insert. The broiler pan will catch grease spills and the insert helps
prevent grease splatters.

Cooking with Meat Probe
IMPORTANT
Use the probe feature for best results when cooking foods
such as roasts, hams, or poultry.
•
Do not store the probe inside the oven. Use only the
original probe provided. Connecting any other probe
or device could result in damage to the oven control,
electronics, and the receptacle.
•
Before starting self clean, double check that the probe
is removed from the oven interior. Defrost frozen
foods completely before inserting the probe.
The probe feature, when set correctly, will signal an alert
when the internal food temperature reaches the desired set
target temperature.
When active, the probe displays the internal food temperature which is visible in the display during the cooking
process. This eliminates any guesswork or the need to
open the oven door to check the thermometer.
For meats like poultry and roasts, using a probe to check
internal temperature is the safest method to ensure properly
cooked food.
Proper placement of probe in food.
•
CAUTION
Do not use kitchen utensils to pull on the probe cable or
handles. Always insert and remove the probe using the
provided handles, as shown in Figure 27, and always use
a pot holder to protect hands from possible burns.
Insert the probe so that the probe tip rests inside the
center of the thickest part of meat or food (See
Figure 28). For best results, do not allow the probe
temperature sensor to contact bone, fat, gristle, or the
cookware.

CAUTION
For further assistance, guidelines for proper
usage, and a complete list of models with the
Sabbath feature, please visit the web at
www.star-k.org.
Food poisoning hazard. Do not let food sit for more than
one hour before or after cooking. Doing so can result in
food poisoning or sickness. Foods that can easily spoil
such as milk, eggs, fish, meat or poultry, should be chilled
in the refrigerator first. Even when chilled, they should not
stand in the oven for more than 1 hour before cooking
begins, and should be removed promptly when finished
cooking.
This appliance provides special settings for use when
observing the Jewish Sabbath/Holidays. Sabbath mode disables all audible tones or visual display changes on the
oven control. Bake heating is the only cooking feature available while in the Sabbath mode. Oven controls are locked
during Sabbath mode.
You must first set the Bake feature and temperature(s)
needed for the oven, the Bake Time, and Delay Start
options (if needed). Any settings made prior to setting the
Sabbath mode will be visible in the displays. The Bake Time
option, if set prior to the Sabbath mode, will give one
audible alert at the end of Bake Time.
The Sabbath mode will override the factory preset 6 hour
energy saving mode, and the appliance will stay on until the
cooking features are cancelled. If any of the cooking features are cancelled when the appliance is in the Sabbath
mode, no audible or visual indicators will be available to
verify the cancellation.
If the oven interior lights are needed, be sure to activate
them prior to setting the Sabbath mode. Once the oven light
is turned on and the Sabbath mode is active, the oven light
will remain on until the Sabbath mode is turned off and the
oven lights are turned off. The oven door will not activate
the interior oven lights when the oven door is opened or
closed.
It is recommended that any oven temperature modification
made within an active Sabbath mode be followed with two
presses of the START key. This will insure the oven
remains on even if an attempt is made to set the oven
temperature outside of its temperature range.
Important:
•
Do not attempt to activate any other oven function
except Bake while the Sabbath feature is active. The
following keys will function correctly when the Sabbath
feature is active: 0-9 number keypad, Bake, START,
and OFF. All other keys should not be used once the
Sabbath feature is active.
•
You may change the oven temperature once baking has
started. Press Bake, use the numeric keypad to enter
the oven temperature change (170°F to 550F°), and
press START (for Jewish Holidays only).
•
Remember that the oven control will no longer provide
audible tones or display any further changes when the
Sabbath feature is active.
•
The oven will shut-off automatically after completing a
Bake Time, Delay Start, or keep warm and therefore
may only be used once during the Sabbath/Jewish
Holidays.
•
If a delay start time longer than 11 hours and 59
minutes is desired, set the oven control for the 24 hour
day display mode setting. See “Setting 12 Hour or 24
Hour display mode” on page 21 for more information.
If the oven temperature is set outside of the temperature
range, the oven will default to the nearest available temperature. Try to set the desired oven temperature again.

Self Clean
A self cleaning oven cleans itself with high temperatures
(well above normal cooking temperatures), which eliminate
soils completely or reduces them to a fine powdered ash
you can wipe away afterwards with a damp cloth. This function can be programmed for clean times between 2 and 4
hours.
Important: Before starting self clean read all following
caution and important statements before starting a self
clean cycle
•
Remove any excessive spills. Any spills on the oven
bottom should be wiped up and removed before starting
a self clean cycle. To clean use hot, soapy water and a
cloth. Large spills can cause heavy smoke or fire when
subjected to high temperatures.
•
Do not allow food spills with high sugar or acid content
(such as milk, tomatoes, sauerkraut, fruit juices, or pie
fillings) to remain on the surface as they may leave a
dull spot even after cleaning.
•
Do not clean the oven door gasket. The woven material
in the gasket is essential for a good seal. Care should
be taken not to rub, damage, or remove the oven door
gasket. Doing so could cause damage to the door
gasket and compromise the performance of the oven.
CAUTION
•
Do not leave small children unattended near appliance. During self clean cycle, the outside of the oven
can become very hot and cause burns if touched.
•
Do not line the oven walls, racks, oven bottom, or any
part of the range with aluminum foil. This will cause
permanent damage to the oven interior and destroy
heat distribution, and will melt to the oven interior.
•
Do not force the oven door open. This will damage
the automatic door locking system. Use caution when
opening the oven door after the self clean cycle ends.
The oven may still be very hot and cause burns. To
avoid possible burns, stand to side of oven when
opening door to allow steam or hot air to escape.
•
The health of some birds is extremely sensitive to
fumes given off during the self clean cycle of any
range. Move birds to a well ventilated room.
Important notes:
•
Completely remove all oven racks and any accessories
from oven cavity to avoid damage to oven racks. If the
oven racks are not removed they may discolor.
•
Remove all items from the oven and cooktop including
cookware, utensils, and any aluminum foil. Aluminum
foil will not withstand high temperatures from a self
clean cycle and will melt.
•
Do not spray oven cleaners or oven protective coatings
in or around any part of the oven interior. Clean any soil
from the oven frame, the door liner outside the oven
door gasket, and the small area at the front center of the
oven bottom (Figure 35). These areas heat sufficiently
to burn soil on. Clean using soap and water prior to
starting Self Clean.
38
Fig. 35 Areas to clean and areas to avoid (gasket)
•
The kitchen area should be well ventilated using an
open window, ventilation fan, or exhaust hood during
the first self clean cycle. This will help eliminate the
normal odors.
•
Do not attempt to open the oven door when the OVEN
LOCK indicator light is flashing. Allow about 15 seconds
for the motorized door latch mechanism to completely
lock or unlock the oven door.
•
When the clean time finishes, the oven door will remain
locked until the range has cooled sufficiently. In addition
to the clean time that was programmed, you must allow
about 1 additional hour for the oven to cool before you
will be able to open the oven door.

If your clock is set with the (default) 12 hr display mode,
the delay start for a self clean can only be programmed
to start up to 11 hours and 59 minutes after the time
showing in the display (be sure to set the clock to
current time before programming a Delay Start). To set
a Delay Start self clean to begin 12 or more hours
(maximum is 23 hours and 59 minutes) after the time of
setting, be sure to first set the control in the 24 Hr
display mode.
•
If self clean was active and then interrupted by a power
failure or cancelled before the oven was thoroughly
cleaned, it may be necessary to run another self clean
cycle.
•
If the oven temperature was high enough when self
clean was interrupted the oven control may not allow
another self clean cycle to be set for up to 4 hours.
When self clean is finished:
1. CLEAN message will turn off, and Hot will appear in
display window.
2. Once the oven has cooled down (about 1 hour) and Hot
is no longer displayed, the oven door may be opened.
3. When the oven interior has completely cooled, wipe
away any residue or powdered ash with a damp cloth or
paper towel.
CAUTION
To avoid possible burns, use care when opening the oven
door after the self cleaning cycle. Stand to the side of the
oven when opening the door to allow hot steam and air to
escape.

SETTING OVEN CONTROLS
Steam Clean
The Steam Clean feature offers a chemical free and time
saving method to assist in the routine cleaning of small and
light soils. For heavier baked on soils use the Self Clean
feature..
CAUTION
•
Do not add bleach, ammonia, oven cleaner, or any
other abrasive household cleaners to the water used
for Steam Clean.
•
Before manually cleaning any part of the oven, be
sure all controls are turned off and the oven is cool.
The oven may be hot and can cause burns.
Be sure the oven is level and cool before starting Steam
Clean. If the oven temperature is above room temperature
a triple beep will be heard and the function will not start.
Steam Clean produces best results when started with a cool
oven
To set a Steam Clean cycle:
8. Take care opening the door when the steam clean is
finished. Stand to the side of the oven out of the way of
escaping vapor.
9. Wipe oven cavity and bottom. Do not clean oven door
gasket (Figure 37). Avoid leaning or resting on the oven
door glass while cleaning cavity.
10. To stop Steam Clean at any time press OFF..
Figure 37: Clean around the oven door gasket
Notes:
•
Opening oven door during Steam Clean cycle prevents
the water from reaching the temperature needed to
clean.
•
For best results, clean oven immediately after the cycle
is complete. Steam Clean works best for soils on the
oven bottom.
•
Place a paper towel or cloth in front of the oven to
capture any water that may spill while wiping out.
•
A non abrasive scouring pad, stainless steel sponge,
plastic scraper, or eraser style cleaning pad (without
cleaner) can be used for difficult soils. Moisten pads
with water before use.
•
Do not leave the residual water in the oven for any
length of time.
•
Some condensation or water vapor may appear close to
the oven vent. This is normal. The oven gasket may
become damp; do not wipe dry.
•
Local water sources often contain minerals (hard
water). If hard water deposits occur, wipe cavity with a
50/50 solution of water and vinegar or 50/50 solution of
lemon juice and water.
•
Steam Clean cannot be programmed with a Delay Start.
•
If Steam Clean results are not satisfactory, run a self
clean. See “Self Clean” on page 38.

starting the self-cleaning cycle. Burned-on residue can be cleaned with a stiff nylon
brush and water or a nylon scrubber. Be careful not to damage the oven gasket.
48
BEFORE YOU CALL
Problem
Cause / Solution
The oven control display shows
"SPr" and self-clean is not
working.
The cooktop should not be used during a self-clean cycle. On some models, turning
on any cooktop surface burner will cause the clean cycle to cancel. If the clean cycle
is canceled, the oven control display will show “SPr" for 5 seconds. The oven door will
remain locked until the oven has cooled down below cleaning temperature. If the
oven is below cleaning temperature, the user can start another clean cycle immediately. If the oven is in cleaning temperature range, another self-clean cycle can be set
once the door unlocks (up to 4 hours).
Other Problems
Appliance is not level.
Be sure the floor is level, strong, and stable enough to adequately support the range.
If the floor is sagging or sloping, contact a carpenter to correct the situation.
Poor installation. Place the oven rack in the center of the oven. Place a level on the
oven rack. Adjust the leveling legs at the base of the appliance until the rack is level.
Kitchen cabinet alignment may make range appear not level. Be sure cabinets are
square and have sufficient room for appliance clearance.
Cannot move appliance easily.
Appliance must be accessible for
service.
Cabinets not square or are built in too tightly. Contact the builder or installer to make
the appliance accessible.
Oven light does not work.
Be sure the oven light is secure in the socket. See “Replacing the Oven Light” on
page 44.
