Question about Ovens
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.
