Is It Normal for Your Wolf Oven to Make Noise?
Some noises are normal to hear from your Wolf oven, especially if it’s a fairly new appliance or in preheat or cooldown mode. It’s important to know when the noises are normal and when they’re not.
Wolf Oven Popping Noise
If your Wolf oven is fairly new, it’s common to hear popping noises due to the oven cavity expansion and contraction. Noises such as thumping can occur due to expansion and contraction before and after the oven is used. It is usual for the noise to last for several uses. However, running self-clean can help reduce the noise as well. If you have a gas oven, run the unit at a high temperature for a similar effect.
If the popping noise does not dissipate after a month or so of regular use or gets louder, you should reach out to a Wolf-certified professional for diagnosis.
Why Is My Oven Making Clicking Sounds?
Many electrical components of a Wolf oven, such as the control board, relay switches, door latches, and more, can cause clicking sounds during normal operation. If you notice the noise is particularly repetitive or loud, reset the oven by turning the power off at the circuit breaker for 30 seconds and then turn it back on. Test the unit again and listen for the clicking sound, if it comes back, you will need to contact a professional.
Why Is My Wolf Oven Fan So Loud?
Wolf oven fan noises are normal to hear whether the oven is in use or after it’s been used. Normal fan noise can last up to 45 minutes while the oven cools off. Fans are used to preheat the ovens and cool the oven off.
Unusual noises from your Wolf oven fans include rubbing, rattling, banging, or high-pitched sounds. But, as long as the noise isn’t unusual and the oven is operating properly, there’s no need to worry.
