Hello, I am a different expert. The number you provided is a part number. Your oven is set for Celcius. I would need your model number to give a specific answer but here is one version that may work. If it does not work please send your model number. number. Let me know what happens.

Look for the button marked "Precise Clean" in the upper left corner of the control panel.

  • Press and hold this button for five seconds until the display reads "Temperature Unit Fahrenheit.

  • Push the "Off/Cancel" button to lock in the Fahrenheit setting.
