Wolf oven problem

palomalouJanuary 27, 2013

I think I have a problem with my oven in a Wolf all gas. Had it for 8 years with nary a problem, but now when I bake the oven makes a reasonably loud "whoosh" pretty often. I'm presuming that is when it does its restart which it must have to do to keep to oven even. It has always made a sound then, but MUCH more quietly. It scares me to the point that until it is looked at, I won't bake in the gas. Mercifully, there is an electric wall oven I can use. But has anyone else had this problem?

I have had my Wolf AG for a little over a year. It makes a really loud Whoosh sound when it first starts up, but not so much after that. Is the first start up usually really loud?

You are doing the right thing to have it looked at. I had a similar thing with another oven once and I think it was an ignitor(or glow plug) that was bad, easily replaced---but that might have nothing to do with what is wrong with yours!

I recently repaired a similar problem in a viking range [gas] about the same age. The burners were deteriorated near the ignitor. T'was a simple fix to replace the burners.

Good luck.

Range was repaired today. It needed a new burner and ignitor and a pipe replaced. DH handled the repairman so I am not sure what the "pipe" was, but all is now well. Not too bad: two visits (diagnosing, then fixing), $335.
