IMPORTANT SAFETY INSTRUCTIONS
IMPORTANT INSTRUCTIONS FOR USING THE
APPLIANCE
WARNING
Storage In or On Appliance—Flammable
materials should not be stored in an oven, near
surface burners, or in the warmer drawer (if
equipped). This includes paper, plastic, and
cloth items, such as cookbooks, plastic ware,
and towels, as well as flammable liquids. Do not
store explosives, such as aerosol cans, on or
near the range.
Do not leave children alone - Children should
not be left alone or unattended in the area
where the appliance is in use. They should
never be allowed to sit or stand on any part of
the appliance, including the storage drawer,
lower broiler drawer, or lower double oven.
Do not store items of interest to children in the
cabinets above the range. Children climbing on
the range to reach items could be seriously
injured.
Do not allow children to climb or play around the
appliance. The weight of a child on an open
oven door may cause the appliance to tip,
resulting in serious burns or other injury. An
open drawer when hot may cause burns.
Stepping, leaning, or sitting on the door or
drawers of this appliance can result in serious
injuries and also cause damage to the appliance.
WARNING
Never cover any slots, holes, or passages in the
oven bottom or cover an entire oven rack with
materials such as aluminum foil or aftermarket
oven liners. Doing so blocks air flow through the
oven and may result in carbon monoxide
poisoning. Aluminum foil linings may trap heat,
causing a fire hazard.
Do not use oven or warmer drawer (if equipped)
for storage.
Never use your appliance as a space heater to
heat or warm the room. Doing so may result in
carbon monoxide poisoning and overheating of
the appliance.
CAUTION
When heating fat or grease, watch it closely.
Grease may catch fire if it becomes too hot.
Do not use water or flour on grease fires.
Smother fire or flame or use dry chemical or
foam-type extinguisher. Cover the fire with a
pan lid or use baking soda.
Use dry potholders. Moist or damp potholders
on hot surfaces may result in burns from steam.
Do not let potholders touch hot cooking areas.
Do not use towels or other bulky cloths.
Do not heat unopened food containers - Buildup of pressure may cause container to burst
and result in injury.

IMPORTANT SAFETY INSTRUCTIONS
CAUTION
Do not touch surface burners or elements,
areas near these burners or elements, interior
surfaces of the oven, or the warmer drawer (if
equipped). Surface burners and elements may
be hot even though they appear cool. Areas
near surface burners and elements may
become hot enough to cause burns. During and
after use, do not touch, or let clothing or other
flammable materials touch these areas until
they are cool. These areas may include the
cooktop, surfaces facing the cooktop, oven vent
areas, oven door, and oven window.
Do not attempt to operate the appliance during
a power failure. If the power fails, always turn off
the appliance. If the appliance is not turned off
and the power resumes, electric surface
elements may resume operation when power is
restored. Once the power resumes, reset the
clock and the oven function.
Keep oven vent ducts unobstructed. Touching
surfaces in this area when the oven is on may
cause severe burns. Do not place plastic or heatsensitive items on or near the oven vent. These
items can melt or ignite.
Placement of oven racks - Always place oven
racks in desired location while oven is cool. If rack
must be moved while oven is hot, do not let
potholder contact hot burner or element in oven.
Use potholders and grasp the rack with both
hands to reposition. Remove all cookware and
utensils before moving the rack.
Do not use a broiler pan without its insert. Broiler
pans and inserts allow dripping fat to drain away
from the high heat of the broiler. Do not cover the
broiler insert with aluminum foil; exposed fat and
grease could ignite.
Do not cook food on the oven bottom. Always
cook in proper cookware and always use the
oven racks.
IMPORTANT INSTRUCTIONS FOR USING
YOUR OVEN
Protective liners—Do not use aluminum foil, aftermarket oven liners, or any other materials or
devices to line oven bottom, oven racks, or any
other part of the appliance. Only use aluminum as
recommended for baking, such as lining
cookware or as a cover placed on food. Any other
use of protective liners or aluminum foil may
result in a risk of electric shock or fire or a short
circuit.
Use care when opening oven door, lower oven
door, or warmer drawer (some models). Stand to
the side of the appliance when opening the door
of a hot oven. Let hot air or steam escape before
you remove or replace food in the oven.

COOKING RECOMMENDATIONS
Bakeware
The material of bakeware affects how evenly and quickly it transfers heat from the pan to the food.
Material
Attributes
Recommendation
Shiny metal bakeware
Shiny, aluminum, and non-coated
bakeware is the best for even heating.
It is suitable for all baked goods.
Recommended cooking temperatures and
times are based on shiny metal bakeware.
Dark metal bakeware
Dark bakeware cooks hotter than shiny
bakeware.
Reduce the cooking temperature by 25° F
(13-14° C) when using dark bakeware.
Glass bakeware
Glass bakeware cooks hotter than
shiny bakeware.
Reduce the cooking temperature by 25° F
(13-14° C) when using glass bakeware.
Glass is convenient, as the same piece
of bakeware can be used for cooking,
serving, and storing food.
Insulated bakeware
Insulated bakeware cooks cooler than
shiny bakeware.
Insulated bakeware is designed for
baking in gas ovens.
8
Increase the cooking temperature by 25° F
(13-14° C) when using insulated bakeware.
COOKING RECOMMENDATIONS
Cooking Conditions
Conditions in your kitchen can affect the performance of your appliance when cooking food.
Condition
Aging cookware
High altitude
Attributes
Recommendation
As pans age and become discolored,
cooking times may need to be reduced
slightly.
If food is too dark or overcooked, use the minimum cook
time in the recipe or packaging.
Air is drier and air pressure is lower.
Adjust cooking temperature, cooking time, or recipes as
needed.
Water boils at a lower temperature, and
liquids evaporate faster.
Increase amount of liquid in baking recipes.
Increase cook time on cooktop. Cover dishes to reduce
evaporation.
Foods may take longer to bake.
Increase bake time or oven temperature.
Doughs may rise faster.
Reduce amount of baking soda or baking powder in
recipe. Reduce rising time or punch down dough and
allow it to rise twice.
If food is too light or undercooked, use the middle to
maximum cook time in the recipe or packaging.
Cooking Results
Small adjustments may fix a problem with food not being as done as you like or more done than you like.
Result
Recommendation
Food too light
Use the middle to maximum cook time recommended on packaging or recipe.
Food too dark
Use the minimum cook time recommended on packaging or recipe.
Cooking Tips
Use these additional tips to get the best results from your appliance.

COOKING RECOMMENDATIONS
Cooking
Tips
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.

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 1:
Do not block oven vent location
CAUTION
Always use pot holders or oven mitts when using the
oven. When cooking, the oven interior and exterior, oven
racks, and cooktop will become very hot which can cause
burns.
WARNING
Protective Liners — Do not use aluminum foil or any other
materials to line the oven bottom, walls, racks or any part
of the oven. Only use aluminum foil as recommended in
this manual. Improper installation of these liners may
result in risk of electric shock or fire.
Oven rack types
Flat oven racks may be used for most cooking needs
and may be placed in most oven rack positions.
Removing, replacing, and arranging flat or offset
oven racks
To arrange - Always arrange the oven racks when the oven
is cool (prior to operating the oven).
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.
IMPORTANT
All oven racks should be removed before a self clean
operation. Racks left in the oven during the high heat of
the self clean function can easily discolor.
The ability of the racks to easily slide in and out along the
rack positions may also be affected.

Baking tips
•
•
Fully preheat the oven before baking items like cookies,
cakes, biscuits and breads.
For best results when baking layer cakes using two
oven racks, place racks in positions 3 and 6 and place
pans as shown in Figure 6.
•
When using two racks for baking cookies and biscuits
it’s best to use positions 2 and 6.
•
When using any single rack for baking cookies, cakes,
biscuits, or muffins use rack position 3.
•
Allow at least 2 inches (5 cm) of space between
bakeware for proper air circulation.
•
Dark or dull bakeware absorbs more heat than shiny
bakeware, resulting in dark or overbrowned foods. It
may be necessary to reduce oven temperature or cook
time to prevent overbrowning of some foods.
•
Dark pans are recommended for pies; shiny pans are
recommended for cakes, cookies, and muffins.
•
Do not open oven door often. Opening the door will
reduce the temperature in the oven and may increase
cook time.

Setting the Sabbath Feature (for use on the Jewish
Sabbath and Holidays)
.
WARNING
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 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 and Delay Start options (if needed).
Any settings made prior to setting the Sabbath mode will be
visible in the displays.
The Sabbath mode will override the factory preset 12 hour
energy saving mode, and the appliance will stay on until the
cooking features are canceled. If any of the cooking
features are canceled 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 OK/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.
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.
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, OK/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 OK/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 remain on until canceled 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 13 for more information.

SETTING OVEN CONTROLS
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 11). These areas heat sufficiently
to burn soil on. Clean using soap and water prior to
starting Self Clean.
22
Figure 11: 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

the surface as they may cause a dull spot even after
cleaning. Remove spillovers and heavy soiling as soon as
possible. Regular cleaning will reduce the effort required for
major cleaning later.
To remove heavy soil:
1. Allow a dish of ammonia to sit in the oven overnight or
for several hours with the oven door closed. Clean
softened dirt spots using hot, soapy water. Rinse well
with water and a clean cloth.
2. If soil remains, use a nonabrasive scouring pad or a
nonabrasive cleaner. If necessary, use an oven cleaner
following manufacturer's instructions. Do not mix
ammonia with other cleaners.
3. 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. Clean with hot, soapy
water. Rinse well using clean water and a cloth.
Broiler Pan Cleaning Tips
To prevent grease from baking on, remove the broiler pan
from the oven as soon as cooking is completed. Use oven
mitts because the broiler pan is extremely hot. Pour off
grease. Soak the pan in hot, soapy water.
Clean the broiler pan as soon as possible after each use. If
necessary, use soap-filled steel wool pads. Heavy scouring
may scratch the grid.

CARE AND CLEANING
Aluminum Foil, Aluminum Utensils, and Oven
Liners
WARNING
Never cover any slots, holes, or passages in the oven
bottom or cover an entire oven rack with materials such
as aluminum foil. Doing so blocks air flow through the
oven and may cause carbon monoxide poisoning.
Aluminum foil linings may trap heat, causing a fire hazard.
•
Protective liners—Do not use aluminum foil to line the
oven bottom. The high heat of the oven can melt these
materials to the oven cavity and ruin the oven. These
types of materials can also reduce the effectiveness of
the air circulation in the oven and produce poor baking
results. Only use aluminum foil as recommended in this
manual. Improper installation of these liners may result
in risk of electric shock or fire.
•
Aluminum utensils - The melting point of aluminum is
much lower than that of other metals. Care must be
taken when aluminum pots or pans are used.
•
Oven racks - Do not use aluminum foil to cover the oven
racks. Using a liner in the oven restricts the heat and air
flow needed to obtain the best possible cooking results
for any oven.
Adhere to the following precautions when using spray
oven cleaners:
•
Do not spray cleaner on the electrical controls or
switches because it could cause a short circuit and
result in sparking or fire.
•
Do not spray any cleaner on the oven door trim or
gasket, broiler drawer glides, handles or any exterior
surfaces of the oven, plastic or painted surfaces. The
cleaner can damage these surfaces.
•
Do not allow a film from the cleaner to build up on the
temperature sensing bulb; it could cause the oven to
heat improperly. The bulb is located in the rear of the
oven. Carefully wipe the bulb clean after each oven
cleaning, being careful not to move the bulb. A change
in its position could affect how the oven bakes. Avoid
bending the bulb and capillary tube.
Replacing the Oven Light
CAUTION
Be sure the oven is unplugged and all parts are cool
before replacing the oven light.
The interior oven light is located at the rear of the oven
cavity and is covered by a glass shield. The glass shield
must be in place whenever the oven is in use (Figure 15).
To replace the oven interior light bulb:
1. Turn electrical power off at the main source or unplug
the appliance.
2. Remove interior oven light shield by turning a quarter
turn counter-clockwise.
3. Replace bulb with a new T-4 type Halogen 25 watt
appliance bulb.
NOTE
Wear a cotton glove or use a paper towel when installing
a new bulb. Do not touch the new bulb with your fingers
when replacing. This will shorten the life of the bulb.
4. Replace glass oven light shield by rotating clockwise.
5. Turn power back on again at the main source (or plug
the appliance back in).
6. Be sure to reset the time of day on the clock

CARE AND CLEANING
Removing and Replacing the Oven Door
IMPORTANT
Oven door
hinge
locations
Special door care instructions - The door is heavy. For
safe, temporary storage, lay the door flat with the inside
of the door facing down.
Most oven doors contain glass that can break. Do not
close the oven door until all the oven racks are positioned
correctly in the cavity. Do not hit the glass with bakeware
or any other objects. Scratching, hitting, jarring, or
stressing the glass may weaken its structure, causing an
increased risk of breakage at a later time.
Figure 16: Door hinge location
To remove the oven door:
1. Open oven door completely, horizontal with floor.
2. Pull up the lock located on each hinge support toward
front of the oven until the lock stops. You may have to
apply a little upward pressure on the lock to pull it up
(Figure 17 and Figure 18).
3. Grasp the door by the sides, and close the door until the
door frame makes contact with the unlocked hinges.
Figure 17: Door hinge locked
4. Pull the bottom of the door toward you while rotating the
top of the door toward the appliance to completely
disengage the hinge levers (Figure 19).
To Replace Oven Door:
1. Firmly grasp both sides of oven door along the door
sides. Do not use the oven door handle (Figure 19).
2. Hold the oven door at the same angle as the removal
position. Carefully insert the hinge levers into the oven
frame until you feel the hinge levers are seated into the
hinge notches. The hinge arms must be fully seated into
the hinge notches before the oven door can be fully
opened. (Figure 19).
Figure 18: Unlocking door hinge
3. Fully open the oven door, horizontal with floor
(Figure 16).
4. Push the door hinge locks up toward and into the oven
frame on both left and right oven door hinges to the
locked position (Figure 17).
