Are you talking about a convection setting on your oven?
A convection oven uses a fan to circulate heat in an oven, causing your food to cook at a faster rate. It usually requires either a lower temperature or time modification to your recipes. You may want to check with the oven manufacturer or look online for a table or chart to convert this.
You can usually cook in your oven WITHOUT the convection setting, and you would use normal temperature settings and times.

no Chris not a convection oven,its a Westinghouse,Freestyle brand,in the wall type but thanks anyway i always drop the temp but its annoying sometimes because you have to guess cooking times on most things.
