Wolf Induction Cooktop and Induction Range Smart Generator Considerations


  • Can a Wolf Induction Cooktop (CI) or Induction Range (IR) be used with a Smart Generator?
  • Will a SMART Generator cause a CI or IR to malfunction?
  • Smart Generator technology causing error codes to appear on a CI or IR


Smart Generators use a load management system that will prioritize the home needs, and draw power from sources that are not essential.

  • When an appropriately sized SMART Generator is used, taking into consideration the electrical load of the home, the Induction Cooktop (CI) and Induction Range (IR) will work normally.
  • If an undersized SMART Generator is used, the resulting amperage drop may cause performance issues.
  • The cooktop and range will not be affected by a reasonable voltage or amperage drop, but error codes may appear if the drop is significant.
