Cell Phone Turns Products On or Off


  • Can a cell phone turn on an oven or refrigerator?
  • Will a cell phone turn off a dishwasher?


A recent CBS report alerted consumers that some cell phones may turn on electric ovens operated by a control board.

  • This is something Sub-Zero, Wolf, and Cove check during control development through ESD (electro static discharge) and or radiated energy tests.
  • Sub-Zero, Wolf, and Cove products should not experience this type of problem due to our high quality control development process.
