While Wolf is a high-quality name in cooking appliances, their ovens can still experience malfunctions accompanied by an error code. What are Wolf oven error codes? These combinations of numbers or letters correspond to a particular issue that must be resolved to clear the code and resume function. Learn the meanings of the most common Wolf oven error codes to quickly solve the problem.
How to Decipher Wolf Oven Error Codes
Error codes are your oven’s way of communicating a problem, but you can’t find the right fix if you don’t speak the language. The following guide translates the most common Wolf oven error codes and recommends the right solutions.
Error Code F1
A Wolf wall oven F1 error code typically indicates a door latch problem. As a safety precaution, the door latch locks the oven door during a self-cleaning cycle. If it malfunctions, you typically notice the F1 code during or following the self-clean function.
To clear the code, turn off the oven’s circuit breaker and wait 60 seconds before turning it back on. Next, set the oven to BAKE to resume function.
If turning off the circuit breaker doesn’t work, try following these steps:
- Press and hold the “0” and TEMPERATURE buttons simultaneously for 5 seconds. If you have dual ovens, make sure you press the TEMPERATURE button for the oven with the error code.
- When the oven chimes and displays diagnostics on the display panel, press and hold COOK TIME and STOP TIME for 5 seconds. This should clear the code.
- Press OFF to turn off the oven.
- Turn the oven on to resume function.
If these steps still don’t clear the code and enable operation, the door latch may require professional replacement.
Error Code OPP
The Wolf oven fault code OPP displays on Dual-Fuel ovens if you try to operate one while the other is in self-clean mode. To safeguard against excessive heat and power usage, a Wolf Dual-Fuel oven will not operate at all while the other is self-cleaning. Clear the code by turning off the ovens’ circuit breaker and waiting 60 seconds before turning it on again.

If one oven isn’t in self-clean mode, sometimes OPP will display if something is blocking the door from closing properly. Before turning off the circuit breaker, make sure oven racks are properly positioned and that nothing else is obstructing the door’s closure.
Error Code OE
When your Wolf oven shows error code OE it typically indicates a communication failure between the display board and the internal control board. If either of these computerized boards experiences an electrical failure, the oven won’t respond to commands.
Try clearing the code by turning the oven off at the circuit breaker and waiting several minutes before turning it back on. If this doesn’t work, the display board or internal control board has failed and must be professionally replaced.
Error Code O9
Is your Wolf oven not heating up correctly? Temperature issues are often caused by a faulty temperature sensor and accompanied by an error code of 09. This sensor monitors fluctuations in the oven’s temperature, signaling for more or less heat when needed. If the sensor malfunctions, the oven may not heat up sufficiently or maintain its set temperature.
Just as when clearing other codes, you can try turning off the oven’s circuit breaker and waiting 60 seconds to resolve the issue. If this doesn’t work, the temperature sensor is likely faulty and requires replacement.
Error Code OC
Of all the Wolf oven error codes, OC is the most likely to require professional assistance. This code indicates a communication error with the oven’s main control knob and the internal control board. The control knob sets the correct function and temperature while the control board responds to these commands, providing power to the right feature. If either the knob or control board have malfunctioned, the oven likely won’t turn on.

If turning off the oven’s circuit breaker doesn’t clear the code, the control knob or board requires a professional Wolf oven repair.
