Wolf oven - oven clicks continuously

Hi there,  I have an older model Wolf stove and I love it! When I use the oven though the ignition part tends to make a "tic tic tic" noise for a very long time, even after the oven has reached it's desired temperature. Is that normal? The stove top rings make that "tic tic tic" noise only when igniting initially then the ignition noise stops once the flame has caught.  To make sure that the stove was safe, I had a repair tech. come to my house, he glanced at it, listened to it, and he said that it was normal. That cost me $165 but I have used a lot of stoves over the years and this noise just does not seem right. It clunks off occasionally but it's hard to tell why since it does not appear to by synchronous with the desired temp. Any ideas? Thanks,  Rosaleen

It may be bad electrode or spark module, but most I see is the pilot light went off during operation and spark module tried to reignite the pilot light. in order to fix it, you can try to move (bend the pilot light mounting bracket) to the lower right but make sure the pilot light is approx. 30-45 degree in an angle so tip of the flame is touching the edge of the oven burner tube. also make sure the pilot light has nice blue flame and look like T shape, if you have pilot light flame looked yellow and has U shape then you have to disassemble the pilot light and clean it. Good Luck.

This sounds like you have a flame switch getting ready to go out. The reason you are hearing the ticking noise is that after the ignition is satisfied the flame switch is not detecting and sending a signal to continue to try for ignition.

Most of these new fangled gas stove feature a silicone carbide ignitor to light the oven. Older stoves used a standing pilot light. As silicone carbide ignitor age a little they tend to get weak and fail to open the gas safety vave sufficiently enough for ignition. Take a look

I have a 36'' Wolf LP oven with 4 burners and a charbroiler in the center, When lighting the charbroiler, the electronic igniter continues clicking up to 5 minutes after the charbroiler lights


Hi.

The igniters are all controlled by a main hub switch located under the cooktop panel.

Replace the sparking igniters module to fix the sticky igniters problem.

No gas to oven


Hello, even though the igniter is glowing it does not mean it is drawing the correct amps to open the safety valve. If your igniter is glowing orange replace it. Igniters should glow brillient yellow to the point where you cant look at it. replace the igniter and you will be good to go. Good Luck!! Mike

Wolf oven stove top starting problem


This is caused by a bad flame sensor switch. It has a cap tube (copper line) coming from the pilot area to a switch with two wires on the backside.
