GR Series and R Series Gas Range Single Convection Fan Feature


  • Is a single convection fan in the Wolf Gas Range considered true-convection?
  • What is the difference between true convection and not true-convection?
  • How to verify the convection fan is running.


True-convection has a fan along with a heating element, so it blows heated air. This makes the oven temperature more uniform than it is with regular convection.

The convection fan used in Wolf Gas Ranges is not considered true-convection.

  • There is not a heating element, and the fan will run constantly when turned on.
  • A convection oven adds a fan to move air continuously throughout the oven cavity.
  • The air blowing on the food helps it cook more quickly, evenly, and efficiently than it would have in a conventional oven.

The convection fan does make some noise when turned on.

  • With the oven light on, it may be possible to see the fan spinning depending on the kitchen lighting.
