No, the self-cleaning cycle is automatic, and will raise the heat in the oven to a very high temp (500°F-600°F) then cool the oven.

Here is your manual, see page 17 for cleaning instructions.

The self cleaning instructions for my Frigidaire Gallery Pro Series Model FEB798WCCH do not inform how long to set timer. Any instructions would be helpful as I've never operated a self cleaning oven...


Hello- The function is automatic when clean button is pushed. Oven will lock, and turn on at full power for about 90 mins. This 'feature' can, and usually does eventually burn out circuits in the control board. Techs call this the 'self-destruct' option, cheerfully promoted by the salesman. Avoid using 'self clean'!  Scrape and clean with light soap/water. Turn on to 450deg. for about 30 min. This is about half the temp. of a 900deg. 'clean' cycle and a lot less expensive in the long run. Please acknowledge this post if info is helpful- have more if needed.- Thanks- Ed

Oven cooks at 400 plus degrees when set at 350 degrees


If your problem is temperature do this;
Press "options" Then press "6". Then press "3" to increase or "6" to decrease temp.
Then press "start" to end the calibration.

If you recently used self-cleaning you could have a thermal overload fuse problem.

How can i quit cleaning oven?


During the self clean cycle, oven temp will exceed 900 degrees F. At these temps, if you opened the door, the food inside would immediately catch on fire when the supply of oxygen hit it. When you turn your self clean cycle off, the oven door will remain locked until the internal temp drop below aprox. 550 degrees F for your safety. Once the oven cool below this temp, you will be able to start using the bake or broil again. This should be a Fix-Ya for your oven.
