Question about Cooktops

Cooktop shut off and lock itself up

We have a Wolf 36" electric cooktop. Lately, while we're cooking, the cooktop automatically shut off and lock itself up. If we try to unlock it, it will lock it up again.

If we successfully unlock it, the cooktop will work only for few minutes before it shut off and lock it up again.

Sometimes we have to wait more than half hour before everything starts to work. Does anyone know what the problem is? Any help is appreciated.

Thanks,

Same issue..called Wolf customer service. They said to turn off the breaker for a full 5 minutes. Worked! I'm guessing it resets the unit.

I've discovered with my Wolf 36 Ceramic, that if something warm crosses the control panel, it will trigger it...warm pot lid, warm condensation, bottom of pan, etc.

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.

Glass top is scratched and discolored...can you replace just the glass top? Susan


GLASS MAINTOP ASSY
Part Number PS253905
price around $812.92

Replaced main glass cooking surface on cooktop

First, shut of the breaker to the cooktop.
Then removed two screws to release brackets holding cooktop down. Then lifted the cooktop out of the recess in the counter top and removed the screws around the outside of the glass top. Removed the old, cracked top, by unplugging from the motherboard.
Turned the new cooktop upside down on table and placed weather stripping around the entire underside outside edge (to keep spills from going under the cooktop and cushion the cooktop from the counter top.
Then plugged the new cooktop into the motherboard, replaced screws around outside edge, lowered the cooktop into the recess in the counter, and reinserted the two screws into the hold-down brackets.
Turned the breaker back on.
Note: Just need Screw drivers and 40 minutes of your time.

How do I know if I have fully turned off the cook top?


The orange light is on to tell you the suffuse is still hot. It should go off after 15 minutes.

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.

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.
