Range & Wall Oven - Oven Temperature Incorrect with Convection Cooking
If you are using the Convection Bake or Convection Roast cooking mode for your oven and the oven will not set to the correct temperature, the oven may have the Auto Recipe™ Conversion feature. Many of our cooking products that offer convection oven baking and roasting will have this conversion feature.
Auto Recipe™ Conversion is used in Convection Bake and Convection Roast*.
When the oven is set for Auto Recipe™ Conversion you may see CON appear shortly after setting the temperature and then the oven will automatically be set for 25 degrees less than the temperature entered. On most newer ranges, the display will show the set temperature, not the converted temperature, when the Auto Recipe™ Conversion is in use.
Less heat output is required for the Convection Bake and Convection Roast cooking modes because the oven uses two different methods of cooking.
Convection: Hot air is circulated around the food to cook it.
Conventional: Electric heating elements cook the food.
