Samsung Convection Bake vs Convection Roast

loves2cook82 | May 4, 202105:12 PM     6

I recently got a new range, the Samsung Flex Duo with Dual Fuel (NY63T8751SS). The manual is awful and does nothing to describe the functionality of the different cooking modes. All it says is Convection Bake is great for baked goods, while Convection Roast is good for larger cuts of meat. I'd like to know the actual difference (what the oven actually does) between the two. My previous range (different brand) did a great job of explaining which elements and/or fan came on with different modes.

Google tells me Convection Roast usually uses both the upper and lower heating elements while Convection Bake uses just the lower, but I tried Convection Roast today (in single oven mode, not with the divider in place) and I never saw the broiler turn on.

Samsung doesn't appear to have an email address I can contact, but I did try sending a Facebook message and got nowhere. The first person basically ready the manual back to me, and the second person told me the oven is designed to automatically detect which option is set (um, okay...).

Does anyone happen to know the difference between these two modes, both with single oven use and with the divider in place?
