Frigidaire Self Cleaning Oven Instructions

Frigidaire self-cleaning oven operation is as simple as operating any other kind of oven. The highest level of safety must be exercised when using one of Frigidaire's many oven models, and children should be under close supervision when the oven is being used, according to the Frigidaire FGEW2765KF owner's manual. Because Frigidaire has a plethora of self-cleaning oven models -- most of which are very similar -- we will use this model as the reference.


Self-Cleaning Cycle


First, scrub out removable spills or burnt food from the oven. Any leftover food in the oven during the cleaning cycle will result in smoke, according to the Frigidaire owner's manual. Then, wipe the inside of the oven with a soapy rag. Make sure there are no cooking pans or utensils in the oven because they can't take the heat of the cleaning cycle. The oven racks can be left in the oven during cleaning.

Close the oven door and press the "Clean" button on the settings panel (or turn knob to "Clean"), using the arrows to choose how long to clean. You can choose two to four hours for the Frigidaire FGEW2765KF. Do not open the oven door while the cleaning it taking place. After the cycle is done, let the oven cool and it will unlock itself.



If your oven is one of Frigidaire's newer models, it's a button-operated oven. If this is the case, press the "Bake" button, using the up and down arrows to choose the temperature. If your oven has a mix of knobs and buttons, turn the setting knob to "Bake" and either turn temperature knob to desired temperature or use the up and down arrows to select the temperature.

The pre-heating stage should be at least 12 minutes to give the oven enough time to heat up, then carefully open the oven door (making sure children are clear of the kitchen) and put the food in for the specified amount of time -- using the timer. Turn the timer on by pressing the "Timer" button and using the up and down arrows to specify the amount of time.

Once the food is finished baking, press the "Off" button (or turn the knob to "Off"), put on oven mitts and carefully remove the food to a hot pad.



To broil, place the broiler grid -- a flat, slotted metal sheet -- onto the broiler pan. The broiler pan is a deeper metal pan that is used as a drip pan so the oven doesn't receive the grease and moisture from the items being broiled. Then, put the meat onto the two-piece broiler and put them into the oven. To cook meat rare, place on the highest oven rack (closes to the broiler), and took cook meat well-done, place on the lower racks.

Push the "Broil" button on your settings (or twist knob to "Broil"). Select the temperature using the up and down arrows on your settings panel. Cook one side to desired readiness, then flip and do the same on the other side.

Turn the oven off, open the door and take the broil pan out with oven mitts.
