Is the fan in a fan oven supposed to run continuously?
Fan - a fan in the back of the oven ensures food is evenly cooked by distributing hot air around the cooking compartment. The fan runs continuously while the oven is in use. via
Can you turn off the fan in a GE convection oven?

Should you be able to hear the fan in convection oven?

How do convection oven fans work?
Very simply put, a convection oven has a fan and exhaust system that a regular oven does not. The fan and exhaust help blow hot oven air over and around the food, then vent it back out. As a result, this hot air surrounds the food so that it cooks evenly and more quickly. via
Can I use my oven if the fan isn't working?
A frequently asked question is can I still use my oven if the fan is broken? The answer is no – as the oven will quickly overheat and this can be extremely dangerous. via
What is the difference between fan forced and fan assisted ovens?
Fan-forced ovens have a heating element around the fan behind the rear panel. Fan-assisted ovens have two heating elements, one in the roof and one in the base with a fan (but no element) at the back. Both functions enable circulating airflow and even cooking, however fan assisted cooking is a little gentler. via
How do I know if my oven has a cooling fan?
You needn't turn the oven on to find out if it's fan-equipped, however – there should be a little fan symbol on the outside: a three-pronged fan for a fan assisted oven, and a three-pronged fan inside a circle for a fan oven. via

How do you fix a noisy convection oven fan?
Visibly inspect the fan for any loose blades, wobble, or debris. Ensure the nut holding the fan blade to the fan assembly is on tight. If the fan assembly has any symptoms such as an open winding or an ohm reading that is out of range could be the reason the fan is off kilter and making a lot of noise. via
How do I know if my convection fan is working?
It's easy to tell if your heating element is out when the oven is on. Simply place your hand across the convection breeze. If the breeze is cool, then your heating element is out. If it's warm, then the problem is something else. via
What does a normal convection oven sound like?

Is it normal for a convection oven to make noise?
There are several sounds that are normal to hear in range and oven operation. It is normal to hear the temperature control click on and off during the baking, broiling, convection cooking, and self-cleaning cycles. When using the top burners, it is normal to hear a clicking sound as the burners cycle on and off. via
When should you not use a convection oven?
In American baked goods, convection should never be used unless a recipe specifically calls for it. In a home oven, the hot, dry air accelerates crust formation in cakes, cookies, and biscuits which is generally counterproductive to desired rise. via
Can you use aluminum foil in a convection oven?
Answer: The oven trays supplied with the Convection Steam Oven can be covered in aluminum foil. Aluminum foil pans can be placed on the oven trays supplied, provided they do not touch the back wall of the oven. Cooking with aluminum foil is safe as long as contact with the oven cavity is avoided. via
