Wolf Oven Maximum Run Time


  • How long will a Wolf oven stay on?
  • Can a Wolf Dual Fuel Range be set to run for 24 hours?
  • Wolf oven turns off after 12 hours


Wolf electric ovens are equipped with a 12-hour shutoff feature that automatically turns off the oven after 12 hours of continual use, except in dehydration or Sabbath Mode.

  • This applies only to electric ovens. Gas ovens will stay on until turned off manually.
  • The same applies if the oven is on 12 hours and cooking modes are changed during that time.
  • The temperature the oven is set to has no impact on the 12 hour shut off time.
  • Dual Fuel Ranges have a standby power feature that will turn the clock off after 10 minutes. See Dual Fuel Range Clock Standby Power.
  • Convection Steam Ovens have a run dry safety feature. Run time varies by mode and amount of water used. Refer to Convection Steam Oven Water Tank for more information.
