Electric Wolf Stove Repair & Maintenance
The wear and tear that comes from frequent stove use are normal. And, unfortunately, this regular usage can often cause your stove to breakdown from time to time. However, knowing what to look for when it comes to repairs and maintenance can save you a lot of time, and money!
So with that in mind, let’s explore some of the most common problems that come with electric Wolf stoves, as well as how to repair and maintain them.
Broken Heating Element
A broken heating element is a common repair and maintenance issue. When you turn on your stove, electricity passes through the heating element. In other word, it’s this element that cooks the food you plan on eating. However, if the heating element is broken, it won’t heat up, and sadly, your food won’t cook. Before you check your stove’s heating elements, always make sure to first turn off the power. Then, check the heating element for visual signs of damage like cracks, blisters, and separation. If you see any damage, you will need to replace the element.
Problems with the Thermal Fuse
A stove’s thermal fuse is designed to protect your appliance from overheating or taking damage during a power surge. If your electric Wolf stove overheats or gets a surge of electricity, the thermal fuse can blow. Of course, your stove will still be fine, but you will need a new thermal fuse before you can get cooking again.
The best way to tell whether or not there’s a problem with your stove’s thermal fuse is to visually check the fuse for signs of it being burnt out. However, In this situation, you should strongly consider contacting a professional for assistance.
Damaged Power Cord
Once it’s been plugged in, it’s easy to forget about your stove’s power cord. Over time, however, the power cord can get damaged, which could cause you issues down the line. Checking for a damaged power cord is simple, but first, it’s crucial to ensure that the power has been turned off before inspecting it. Then, look for any frays or breaks in the plastic covering the wires.
If your electric Wolf stove doesn’t heat or turn on because of a damaged power cord, you’ve got a pretty serious issue. Even exposed wires still carry an electric current. Therefore, if not properly addressed, the damaged cord could potentially cause an electrical fire. Contact an experienced professional to help you replace the damaged cord with a safe one.
Gas Stove Won’t Heat
Just like electric stoves, gas stoves also break down from time to time and won’t heat up when you need them to. Although inconvenient, there are a few common issues that are easily resolvable.
Weak Gas Flow
A faulty regulator can often cause a weak and inadequate gas flow. This regulator is what controls the pressure of the gas going into the appliance, and in turn, the amount of heat that your stove will output. Repairing or replacing a stove regulator on your own is dangerous because you’ll need to work with the gas line. Don’t risk a gas leak!

Clogged Burner Element
If the burner on your gas stove doesn’t produce a strong flame, you might, and most likely, have dirty burners. Over time, food and other particles can block the burner holes. And when blocked, gas won’t be able to get through adequately, which creates a weak flow and poor heat output.
Cleaning your burners with rubbing alcohol or a non-abrasive cleaner will usually solve this problem.
The average gas stove igniter lasts approximately 2 to 3 years. However, when it becomes faulty or broken, it will prevent your burner from igniting properly. To check your igniter, turn off all the lights in your kitchen. Turn the igniter on. If the spark is non-existent, or appears orange or yellow instead of bluish, you’ll know you need to replace the igniter.
When it comes to gas appliances, contacting an experienced professional is always the safest and most efficient way to resolve your problem.
