I've never had a convection oven before. In fact, I even asked the sales person why I needed a convection oven! The new oven can be used either as a conventional oven or as a convection.
So I opened the owner's manual and followed the directions. But no matter what I did, the convection oven came on (that's my side of the story). Finally, I sent an e-mail to the sales person at Charlotte Appliance. She responded, giving me the same instructions as I had been following.
"What am I doing wrong?" I asked myself.
When I turned the knob for conventional baking, I immediately heard a sound that I swore was the fan for the convection oven. Only this time, I opened the oven door and stuck my hand inside to "prove" that the fan was on. . . except that the fan was not on!
I can laugh at it now, but I was getting really frustrated for awhile.
I cooked a roast, using the convection setting one night this week. It turned out great.
