The oven preheat indicator light on a Wolf range illuminates while the oven is calling for heat. This occurs during preheat and periodically during cooking to maintain set temperature.

If the oven indicator light flashes repeatedly or cycles on and off quickly, the flame was lost and cannot reignite.

  1. Turn oven selector bezel off.
  2. Reset unit's power at circuit breaker.
  3. Test unit's operation while making sure the oven door is closed tightly.

If the preheat indicator light continues to flash after following these troubleshooting steps, service is necessary to expertly diagnose and repair the product. Contact Factory Certified Service to schedule an appointment for repair.
