Oven Not Clean After Self-Clean

Core Issue:

  • Dual Fuel or Built-In Oven not clean after running self-clean
  • Oven still dirty after self-clean was run
  • Self-Cleaning ran but oven is still dirty

Steps to Verify Issue:

  1. Wipe out oven cavity, and follow cleaning recommendations; see Clean Blue Porcelain Oven Interior.
  2. Run self-clean again and adjust self-clean time to maximum time. See Adjusting Oven Self-Clean Time Length.

Refer to the Wolf Cleaning Guide for product recommendations and further information.


If the oven cavity is not clean after following the recommendations above, the stain may be permanent.
  • Foods with a high sugar or acid content (i.e. milk, tomatoes, fruit juices) that are allowed to remain on any porcelain enamel surface may cause a permanent dull spot.
  • Some staining is considered normal.
  • See also, Dual Fuel and Built-In Ovens Self-Clean Feature.
