Troubleshooting – Why your Wolf gas oven not lighting up

Wolf appliances are among the most dependable appliances on the market. So if your Wolf gas range won’t light, you want to know why. We have listed some of the most common causes for a Wolf range not working so you can try to determine how to fix the problem.

Troubleshooting – Why your Wolf gas oven not lighting up

Check the power source

Does the front panel of your Wolf range have a lighted display? If not, then you need to check the power source. If your Wolf range won’t turn on, you can check the electrical connection in a few ways:

Check the circuit breaker panel – see if there has been an electrical failure and a circuit has been shut off. If so, reset the circuit breaker to restore power.
Check the local outlet – see if there is a reset button for the few outlets it serves.
Check the range unit’s plug – make sure it’s fully inserted into the wall, and that there is no visible damage to the plug to indicate a short.

If you have inspected the electrical power connections from your Wolf gas range not lighting and there is still no illumination, then you should call an electrician to check your house’s electrical system.

Check for any moisture in the burners

Fire thrives in dry conditions. So if you have any moisture in the burner assembly, you can count on the spark to fail. A Wolf gas range won’t light if the ignitor has been doused with liquid – answer these questions:

  • Did a pot boil over?
  • Was the oven recently cleaned with spray/liquid cleaner?
  • Did food splatter out from vigorous stirring?

If you can answer “yes” to any of these questions, then it is likely there is liquid interfering with the ignitor, thus preventing a spark from lighting the range. Wait 5 minutes for the area to dry out and try again.


Check for Food Debris in the Burner

If your Wolf gas range won’t light, another likely culprit could be you! When burners get a lot of use with a busy chef, it is not uncommon for food debris to find its way inside the burner. When the igniter gets blocked or clogged with food debris, it can cause burner clicking or ignition failure.

Inspect and clean the burner like this:

  • Remove the grate and burner cap
  • Wipe with burner with damp cloth
  • Use a paper clip to clear the port
  • Ensure everything is dry before replacing

Once you’ve freed up the burner to create a spark again, you should be back in business!

The Truth About Refrigerators

The Truth About Refrigerators:

Lets think about how often you rely on ready access to fresh food. In the mornings you add milk to your coffee; maybe you grab yogurt and blueberries or some eggs to fry. You pack leftover roast chicken for lunch. Come dinnertime, you’re back at the refrigerator, unwrapping that nutty wedge of Parmesan and slicing off a pat of butter for your pasta.

Since having fresh dairy, meats, seafood, and produce on hand is essential for a healthy diet–or, at least, one that’s not just snack food or fast food all day long–it makes sense to store fresh foods in a refrigerator that’ll keep them at their peak for longer. Could your current refrigerator be doing a better job?

Refrigerators used to be called “iceboxes” for good reason, but keeping food fresh involves more than just keeping it cold, and technology has come a long way since then. Three things impact food freshness: humidity, temperature, and airflow. The food in your refrigerator should be treated differently than the food in your freezer (and it’s ideal that the air is never shared between the two).

Take a look at this helpful info-graphic of a Sub-Zero refrigerator. This is no mere icebox: Equipped to constantly balance temperature, humidity, and air quality, each refrigerator is designed to keep your food fresher longer. (Yes, that means you end up throwing less food away, too.)

The Truth About Refrigerators

So, The Truth About Refrigerators is – Even with the best refrigeration, foods don’t last forever. We’ve all had that sad experience of pulling a bag of browned herbs or petrified vegetables out of the refrigerator drawer, or wondering if the innocent-looking-but-somewhat-forgotten steak is still safe to enjoy. Minimize your paranoia and regret by following these five tips:

1) The coldest parts of your refrigerator (the lower drawers) are designed for produce, from peppers and kiwis to peas. But if you find yourself unable to cook often, choose produce like beets, carrots, onions, and apples: They’ll last anywhere from one month (apples) to five (carrots) when stored correctly in those cooler, higher humidity compartments.

2) Ethylene is a key ingredient in ripening–and over-ripening. Some fruits and vegetables produce ethylene, while others are ethylene-sensitive. Don’t place your ethylene-producing apples right next to your ethylene-sensitive bok choy, or your greens will turn before you have time to get out your wok.

3) Items like meat and fish last only a week, at best. If you know you’re not going to use them right away, store them in your freezer.

4) The door of the refrigerator is typically the warmest area, so be sure to store your least perishable items, like condiments, there.

5) Some items don’t belong in your refrigerator at all, including bananas, tomatoes, eggplants, garlic, ginger, jicama, and potatoes. Our advice? Just keep those out on the counter.

  • Does your refrigerator feel warm, even though you have it set to the coldest setting?
  • Do you smell a strange odor when you open your refrigerator door?
  • Is your fridge making loud or ‘strange’ noises?
  • Does your refrigerator sound like it’s ‘trying too hard’ to stay running or cycling more often than it should be?
  • Is there water leaking inside of or from your refrigerator?
  • Is their moisture or wetness in your refrigerator’s fresh food compartment?
  • Is the outside of the refrigerator sweating?
