How to Change an Oven from Celsius to Fahrenheit

By default, American ovens and ranges are preprogrammed to be configured in units of Fahrenheit. However, because the standard unit used in the rest of the world to measure temperature is Celsius, most ovens can be set to this unit of measure. If you have purchased a oven that is set to Celsius or have accidentally set your oven to Celsius, you can quickly change it back to Fahrenheit with just a few steps.

Press the "Broil" and "Bake" buttons at the same time. The letters "SF" will appear on the display.

Press the "Cook Time" and "Broil" buttons at the same time. The letter "F" will appear on the display. If the letter "C" appears on the display, press the "Cook Time" and "Broil" buttons at the same time once again.

Press the "Start" button to save your settings.

Locate the "Clean" or "Precise Clean" button on the control panel.

Press and hold the "Clean" or "Precise Clean" button for five seconds until the letter "C" appears on the display.

Press and hold the "Clean" or "Precise Clean" button once again for five seconds until the letter "F" appears on the display, indicating that the temperature has been changed to Fahrenheit.

Tip

If using a double oven, use the upper oven controls to change between Celsius and Fahrenheit.
