Check where you purchased it, it may still be under warrenty. Next time try the dealer first do not delay.

Testimonial: "Unfortunately the range was exported from the USA here to Belize where we have no dealer so my warranty is largely worthless."

SOURCE: Wolf oven self-clean error 01

Well, ours is working now. We called Wolf, they said the Error 01 indicated a problem with the latching mechanism (that locks the oven during self clean).

We called the local repair outfit (they've been here several times before working on this range), they ordered a latch mechanism and arrived today to install it. The tech this time had worked at an electronic company that I also worked for about 10 years ago (I'm an electrical engineer). So we had a good time talking about the old days and working on the range - I'm always curious about such things. We removed the latching mechanism - its an assembly with a motor and a couple of switches that are used to start and stop the motor. We tested the switches and motor using a meter and power cord. Seemed to be OK. The next thing would be the control board - which we had replaced about 3 years ago - under warranty. Before removing the control board we reinstalled the latch mechanism - and, of course, everything worked fine.

We were both a little dismayed about the quality of the assembly of the range - the wiring looks more like a rat's nest than the tidy routing that we'd like to see.

So, bottom line, neither of us knows what the problem was. Could have been a food particle lodged in the switching mechanism, an intermittent connection or ???.

One thing I noticed as we checked out both ovens: We put the small oven (the one that was having problems) in self clean for a couple of minutes - was OK. Then we turned it off and turned the larger oven to clean mode - when we did that, "OPP" appeared on the display. The tech said that was because the latch of the smaller oven was not in its stop position yet. We gave it a few more seconds then tried clean mode on the other oven and it was fine. I mention that because OPP appeared on the small oven once or twice when we (my wife and I) were initially trying to figure out what the problem was. There's probably a hint in there somewhere as to what the real problem was.

At any rate, its working again ($115 later) but I'm not real confident that it will continue. Next time, I'll open it up myself (not recommended). <g>.

SOURCE: where is the pilot light for imperial range oven

Hello. I will try to guide you, in the area that you described, there should be a pilot safety valve, and usually they have a red button you depress in order to get gas to the pilot. The pilot is usually beyond the safety, if you follow the pipe from the safety, into the burner area, that will lead you to the pilot. Put your match,lighter of choice there, while holding in the red button. wait approx. 30 to 60 seconds, then release. If all is well, your pilot is now lit, however you still may need some attention, like cleaning the pilot and orifice. If not, you will need possibly a thermocouple for the pilot/safety, or a safety. Either of those I would suggest you call a local service company, check your phone book under "restaurant equipment repair"

Hope that helps, and thank you.

SOURCE: how do i adjust oven pilot light on vulcan range

hi, there is an orfice for the oven located on the gas valve. If you are using LP gas, the orfice should be turn down all the way (counter clockwise). If you are using natural gas, the orfice should be turned out about 2-1/2 turns. Was this oven set up to be used with one gas and noe is being used with another? If so, you will need to do more then adjust orfices. Please let me know if I can assist you further.

Have old wedgewood oven in home... How do I adjust the pilot light?


There's usually a small flat screw on the control or near the head of the pilot light. You turn it to change the size of the flame. Before you make and changes, make sure the pilot is clean, most of the time its partially clogged with ash, food etc. That will cause it to burn much smaller or keep going out. If you need to adjust it, do so with small steps.

Old wedgewood oven in home...very low pilot light in oven...how do I adjust it?


The oven pilot is usually located at the back of the oven; turn a screw on the pilot ignition unit to adjust the pilot flame height.

here is a link, pretty much all older ranges operate the same.

Error Code E-08 on Samsung Gas Range. Oven will not heat but range top works.


Is there a gas pilot light that stays lit all the time or does it have an electric pilot light that glows red to start the oven.Either way if it's a gas pilot the thermocouple is bad, if electric the igniter is bad.

Caloric range oven, older at least 20 years old, the range burners spark, but will not light, i am assuming that its electronic ignition, no pilot light?


If you don't smell gas, then it is probably electronic ignition and not a pilot light.

But if your oven and none of the range burners light, are you sure you are getting gas to the unit or from the range valve to the burners and oven? Can you light the burners with a match? If you can you can rule out the valve and incoming gas line, and concentrate on the ignitors.

We are cranking up this BRAND NEW Vulcan flat top. Weh have the convection oven below up and running, but we can't even see a pilot light for the flat top. Advice anyone? Culinary-yours Chef Geir


older ovens have pilots but the newer machines are electronic ignition,there are ignitors in the oven and electrodes or ignitors on the top burners,when you turn the knob for the burner you should hear a clicking sound and see a spark around the burner,that's what lites the burner,the gas comes in and the spark ignites it,i don't know much about your machine but it can't be any different from other stoves.if none are sparking there should be a spark module in there or they could have separate modules,if you send the full model number i can look it up for you

Can't seem to ignite pilot on a 30 year old vulcan heater. Same problem every year as winter is approaching :) Usually works fine once pilot is on though.


Hello,
It's probably just a dirty pilot orifice (or a spider web), if it's been off since last winter. Try using a can of compressed air with attached straw (like you use to clean computer keyboards) and blow out the dust from the pilot orifice in the pilot assembly, which is where you light it. That should do the trick. Good luck! Douglas

Vulcan 148L oven burner will not light. pilot on. should pilot flame touch thermocuple?


Yes.

Over time, thermocouples erode in pilot flames and when they no longer reach the pilot light they need to be replaced. Check the thermocouple mountings as well: some ham-fisted amateurs try to bend the probe back into the pilot light and break the mountings. The pilot light jet will also need to be checked to ensure that it is clean and that the pilot is burning correctly.

Note that as with all gas appliances, repairs should only be carried out by qualified gas fitters who have the tools and knowledge to leave your appliance in a safe condition. In many countries it's a legal requirement. My reply is therefore given on an informational basis only as poor workmanship on gas appliances is directly attributable to many deaths every year.

Oven gas turns off


If your Wolf has pilot light, most cases dirty pilot light (flame looks yellow, normal flame looks blue), you have to disassemble the pilot light to clean it, thermocouple connection is loose, bad thermocouple or bad oven safety valve. you can try change the thermocouple first, if it did not solve the problem, then it will be bad oven safety valve. You can buy thermocouple thru Hardware store. Have fun.
