Wolf Dual Fuel, Induction, and Electric Ovens Self-Clean Feature



Before Self-Clean

  1. Remove all oven racks and rack guides, as they will discolor if left in the oven during self-clean.
  2. Wipe out the oven cavity before running self-clean to help reduce smoke and odors. See Clean Blue Porcelain Oven Interior for more information.
  3. For double ovens, note that only one oven can be in self-clean mode at a time, and the other oven cannot be used during this time.

Starting Self-Clean

For instructions on how to set and start the self-clean cycle, refer to the following resources:


Wall Ovens

If self-clean will not start, refer to Range or Oven Does Not Enter Self-Clean.

During Self-Clean

  • The oven door locks as soon as the self-clean cycle starts.
  • The oven door unlocks during the cool down once temperatures have reached a safe level.
    • The amount of time it takes for the oven to cool to a safe level varies.
    • Running the unit before entering self-clean and ambient room temperature may impact cool down time.
  • The control panel counts down the time remaining for the clean to complete.
  • Control panel shows three times:
    • Far left is the time remaining.
    • Middle is the time of day when the cycle will be complete.
    • Far right shows the current time of day.
  • Self-clean time can be adjusted. See Adjusting Oven Self-Clean Time Length.
  • Surface burners are safe to use while the oven is self-cleaning.
  • During self-clean, exterior surfaces may get hotter than usual, so children should be kept away.
  • Unit will chime when self-clean is completed.

Cancel Cleaning

  • Cancel self-clean at any time by turning the unit off.
  • If canceled, the door stays locked until the unit cools to a safe temperature level.
  • Turning a unit off during self-clean is discouraged. Damage can occur if self-clean does not complete.
