Setting a DeLonghi EO241250M Livenza convection oven to Celsius mode

I’ve been a fan of DeLonghi appliances since the mid-nineties. Every place I’ve lived, I’ve put an oil-filled DeLonghi heater into each room.

Needed a real convection oven a few months back; Japanese apartments typically don’t come with an oven that can be used for cooking, just for grilling fish. I chose one of the DeLonghi Livenza units, and I was pretty happy with it …

… but since I bought it from Amazon US, it was rigged for Fahrenheit. I haven’t thought in Fahrenheit for at least twenty years, none of the recipes that I cook are in Fahrenheit, and I’m too lazy to do the conversion ( 5/9 – 32 … right?) in my head.

The oven firmware pretty clearly could do Celsius, as there was a darkened “C” next to the lit “F” on the front panel. I searched the web for a few days looking for the magic button sequence to flip it, to no avail. I contacted DeLonghi support and they eventually got back to me. Here’s the gouge:

  • select the BAKE or CONVECTION function
  • press Cavity temperature check button (L) for 5 seconds
  • the visualization will change to °C with an acoustic signal
  • To come back to °F visualization repeat the same operation

… so hopefully the next guy that Googles for “DeLonghi EO241250M Livenza Celsius” will get this page in the search results.
