Countertop Oven Burning Odor


  • Why does countertop oven having a burning odor?
  • How to remove the burning odor from toaster oven

Steps to Verify Issue:

To remove odor:

  1. Heat the oven in Convection mode at 450°F (232°C) for five minutes to ensure the residual oil from the manufacturing process has been removed.
  2. After the oven has cooled off, check the interior for any non-food object or any food that has dropped into the crumb tray that may be burning.
  3. If odor continues to occur, there may be food debris in the oven. See Wolf Gourmet Countertop Oven Cleaning.


It is typical to experience smoke and odor during the first use of most heating appliances. These will not be present after the initial heating period.
