Microwave Light While in Use


  • Does the interior light stay on when using a microwave?
  • MS, MC, MD and MDD microwave light operation
  • Should the light on an MW24, MWC24, MWD24, or MWD30 be on when in use?
  • Should the light on an MW24, MWC24, MWD24, or MWD30 be on when opened?


The light will be on when any Wolf Microwave is opened or while in use. This is normal operation. Refer to the product Use and Care Guide for further information.

If the light is not working, reset the unit's power at the circuit breaker.

If these steps do not resolve the issue, no further troubleshooting advice is available. Contact Factory Certified Service to schedule an appointment for repair.
