To help remove the presence of a strong odor in a Wolf oven:

  1. Clean oven interior well using tips from the Wolf Cleaning Reference Guide.
  2. Turn oven on to highest temperature and run for a couple of hours with the convection fans running.
  3. For electric Wall Ovens and Dual Fuel Ranges, run the Self-Clean Mode.
  4. Activated charcoal filters, charcoal briquettes in a container, or baking soda placed in the oven when not in use may help to reduce odors.
  5. If these steps do not resolve the issue, no further troubleshooting advice is available. Contact Factory Certified Service to schedule an appointment for repair.
