SOURCE: need help to unlock the cooktop

You will have to hold the lock button down for 3 or 5 seconds for it to unlock. If this doesn't help, it could be a stuck key pad or a problem in the circuit board.

SOURCE: 36" Wolf induction cooktop cannot get past show

Hello John..... Call the store and ask them what code is needed for this model. They put it in showroom mode and they should have taken it out of showroom mode before it left the store. Shame on them. Joe

THanks for choosing Fixya!

I have a Wolf cooktop model CT36E/S that has the burner lock key flashing. I tried shutting off the breaker many times. PLEASE HELP!!!! Model. CT 36 E/T Serial 11040943

way late but if not fixed here ya go...
Look in the bottom right corner of your Wolf cooktop. A key symbol glows when the cooktop is locked. Press and hold the glowing key symbol for three seconds. The cooktop emits three chimes and the symbol stops glowing when the lock is switched off.Hold the key symbol down for a further three seconds to reactivate the lock.

Wolf Induction cooktop is locked in Showroom mode

If Shr (5hr) appears on the display then the cooktop is in showroom mode. To exit showroom mode the cooktop must be locked by pressing and holding the key symbol for 5 seconds. After the cooktop is locked, press and hold the melt touch pad for 5 seconds.

Turn off power to the cooktop (i.e., using circuit breaker if needed) for 15-20 minutes. Once turned power back on, problem disappeared for me. The semiconductor needed to be reset

Wolf range cooktop

I just installed a Wolf gas cooktop and had the same problem in that all 4 burners would light just fine but the electronic igniters would not stop clicking on all four. What I found was that the electrical outlet that my gas cooktop was plugged into had the polarity reversed. I tested the outlet with a polarity testing module (you can get one at Home Depot and it checks polarity, grounding, GFI and is handy to have around, small and inexpensive). I plugged it in and the lights told me that the polarity was reversed. I reversed the wires in the outlet (exchanged the white and black wires) put the cover back on, plugged in the cook top and now it works like a champ! no more constant clicking. By the way, we had a cooktop before this one with electronic ignition and never had a problem, apparently it didn't care about the polarity.
