Wolf Electric Oven Cooling Fan Operation


  • How long does it take an oven to cool after being turned off?
  • How long will an oven stay hot or warm after use?
  • How long should the cooling fan run after use?
  • Should the cooling fan run when the unit is in use?
  • Why does a fan continue to run or make noise after oven is off?
  • Oven still too hot several hours after use


Cooling fans will run during normal unit operation to prevent parts from overheating.

  • As a safety measure to prevent overheating, cooling fans cannot be turned off.

Cooling fans run long after an oven is turned off.

  • There is not a set time for how long it will take for an oven to completely cool after use.
  • Several factors affect cool-down time, including ambient room temperature, oven temperature, how long oven was used, etc.
  • It is possible for an oven to take several hours to cool completely because of the high-quality oven cavity insulation.
