From my new book:

FrameMaker ordinarily rechecks only paragraphs that have been edited since
the previous check. If you change options after checking a document, you
may want to run the spelling checker again; if so, you need to tell
FrameMaker to mark all paragraphs for rechecking.

To mark all paragraphs for rechecking:

1. On the Edit menu, click Spelling Checker. On the Spelling Checker
dialog, click Dictionaries.

2. On the Dictionary Functions dialog, select Mark All Paragraphs for
Rechecking and click OK.

3. Run the spelling checker as usual.
