Convection Fans during Preheat


  • Do the convection fans run during preheat?
  • Why do I hear a fan noise when the oven is preheating in a regular Bake Mode?
  • Convection fans are on when using a regular Bake Mode


Oven convection fans run when the oven preheats in any Wolf oven produced after June 2005.

  • In ranges and ovens made after June 2005, even if a regular non-convection Bake Mode is used, the convection fans run until the oven is preheated.
  • In Dual Fuel Ranges made before June 2005, the convection fans do not run during preheat.
  • Cooling fan noise can be heard in any range or Wall Oven in any mode and this is separate from convection fan noise.
  • This speeds up the preheat time and provides better oven cavity heat saturation.
