Why is my Convection Fan is Running During Non Convection Cycles
It is normal for the the convection fan in your KitchenAid oven or range to run during non convection cycles. Any gas/electric freestanding range or wall oven with convection may run during preheat or when using non-convection functions. This is to help optimize preheat times, provide uniform oven temperature and provide better baking and cooking performance.
