I cant find my manual! How do I set my self-cleaning electric

This answer was rated:

I can't find my manual! How do I set my self-cleaning electric Frigidaire oven to self-clean? I've had it for about 10 years, and have always used the manual in the past...)


Thanks for counting on us to help with your appliance problem. My name is XXXXX XXXXX I look forward to helping you! May I please have your model number so I am able to provide you with accurate, model specific information?

Sorry -- can't find a model number. Just says, "Fridgidaire Self Cleaning Oven" on it. I've cleaned it about once a year in the past, but had the manual then. Can't find it now!


It is the electric double oven model.

The model number should be on a tag on the oven opening once the door is opened.

Thank you. Have you set the start time and end time on the clock?
Customer: replied 3 years ago.

No -- I can't remember how to do that!

Try pressing the left button until it says start times and then turn the dial to the desired time. Then, do the same for the end time. Let me know what happens.
Customer: replied 3 years ago.
Nope -- nothing happens. Should I turn the two knobs to self-cleaning? Nothing happens then either.

Thanks so much, Kelly. This should work. Must run to an appointment, so will clean the oven this evening.



Sounds good. The link below is to the manual for the Kenmore model, but the exact same controls!
