Resetting the internal temperature is not exact. If you reset the temperature 30 degrees lower, the actual temperature reset will fall between 30 to 35 degrees Fahrenheit.

Changing the oven's internal temperature using these procedures is permanent until you change them again, even if you experience a power outage.

Your Frigidaire oven is programmed with a "factory-set" internal temperature when it is manufactured. If you find when you use the oven at home that it cooks too hot -- or not hot enough -- for the temperature at which you set it, you have the option of resetting the oven's internal temperature higher or lower. The oven's bake, roast or broil modes can be reset by pressing the "Cancel" button. You also can use this option when you want to change the cooking time or temperature for your food. You cannot use it when you want to reset the oven's factory-set internal temperature. This requires a different procedure that is not difficult to accomplish using the reset instructions in the owner's manual.

Reset internal temperature lower

Step 1

Press and hold the "Bake" button for six seconds until "0°" appears in the display.

Step 2

Enter the lower temperature at which you want to reset the oven.

Step 3

Press "Self Clean" to reset the oven's internal temperature to a cooler setting. Pressing "Self Clean" in this instance does not turn on the self-cleaning function. It simply lets the oven know that you are decreasing the temperature.

Step 4

Press "Start." The oven's internal temperature is now reset and the control panel display will return to showing the time.
