Wolf Oven Door Does Not Close


  • Oven door does not fully close
  • Oven door seems to shut, but can be pushed in further
  • Oven door sticking out from oven
  • Oven door does not close properly after cleaning oven


  • Incorrect oven rack or rack guide placement
  • May occur after self-clean or other rack cleaning
  • Hinge issue


If a Wolf oven door does not close:

  1. Make sure the oven racks and rack guides are properly installed.
    • This is the primary reason for the door not closing.
    • It can be difficult to determine if the rack guide is not installed correctly.
  2. Remove the racks and rack guides and then check door operation again.
  3. Verify nothing is blocking the door path or hinge.
  4. If the door has been removed, verify the door is properly installed on the unit.
  5. 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.
