Wolf E Series and L Series Oven Light Does Not Turn Off


  • L Series or E Series Oven light will not shut off
  • Should the light bulb be replaced if it does not shut off when the oven door is closed?
  • How to operate oven light
  • Is the oven light on when the door is open?
  • Is the oven light on when the door is closed?


  1. Verify light is turned OFF at the control panel:
    • In E Series Double Ovens, touching OVEN LIGHT will turn the upper oven light on.
      • To turn the lower oven light on, touch UPPER/LOWER and then OVEN LIGHT.
    • In L Series Double Ovens, the LIGHT touch pad in the upper right corner has options for UPPER or LOWER.
      • Touch UPPER to turn upper oven light on and off, and LOWER to turn lower oven light on and off.
      • The oven light can be on when the door is open or off depending on the setting selected.
      • During Sabbath Mode, the oven lighting is always on or always off depending on the setting selected.
    • Make sure that hands are clean and dry when pressing keys on the electronic control panel.
    • Turn the home circuit breaker to the unit off for 10 seconds then back on again. Retest the unit operation.
    • If these troubleshooting steps do not resolve the issue, service is necessary to expertly diagnose and repair the product. Contact Factory Certified Service to schedule an appointment for repair.
      • Replacing the light bulb would not resolve an issue with the light remaining on in the E Series or L Series Oven.
