Appliance Repair Questions? Ask a Technician for Answers ASAP
Hello, I can help you with this. Is this a gas or electric? Do you know the model number? We can figure this out very easily with a few questions. Let me know, Thanks, Sam
The oven is electric. There is no model number on the oven. Bought the house with it already installed.
The oven is electric. There is no model number on the unit. Nothing on the inside of the oven.
Thanks, XXXXX XXXXX have a failed bake element or a stuck bake relay. have you tried convection (not convection bake)?
Same thing on convection!
The convection uses a different element than the bake so that eleminates the bake element. Does the broil element get red hot on broil setting? Should take less than 5min to get red.
Does this unit have a flip down clock or numbers that light up in the thermostat knob?
I turned on the oven last night on bake & held the element with my hand & was not getting very hot. I was holding on to it for about 5 min. without getting hot.
same with broil?
Yes it does have a flip down face with clock
Same with broil
I know that model. You need a controller board or relay board. There was an upgrade on the controller board a few years back do to simmilar issues, so I would guess that. The only way to test between the two parts woud be to remove the bulnose and use a meter.
As you can see from this model the bullnose is kinda a pain to remove.
These have a five year parts on the boards regarless of owner. But you would need to know how old it was and find the serial number.
This would be something that I would have to get a qualified tech to replace I would imagine
What do I do if I can't find the serial number?
Unless you are unusally handy. It takes me about and hour and these machines are all I work on.
I can do this but knowing how to dismantle it might be a challange.
Sam would you know the model number on this unit so I can order parts?
I'll get on the website right now and figure it out, I can give you instructions on how to dismantle as well.
It is a DF36xx were xx is the number of burners or if it has a grill or griddle. None of that would affect the boards so the xx doesn't matter.
The bullnose is removed by taking off all the knobs. Open the door and remove the for screws (2 each side) holding the bottom part of bullnose. They also hold the side trim up. Then you can lift the bullnose up and rotate the bottom out. Once you do that you will need another pair of hands to hold the bullnose so the wires don't pull out. Putting it back is the hard part.
There are no knobs this is a wall oven. I'm thinking the model is a W 136??
Oh, sorry, I read Range in your complaint and that means floor standing. Let me look up that model. The diagnosis info is still valid as wolf wires all electrics the same.
Of course getting to the boads is a little different, you must pull the unit from the wall 12" and get to the screws on top, then you can remove a quarter top panel and see both boards.
SO36xx where x is color of panels. May be a S036xx-2 or -3 depending on age. There is no tag directly under the display panel?
From what I can gather it was the first units that Wolf brought out around 2006. I will have to look under display panel for a label. Not at the house right now. So I can pull out the unit & go in from the top to service the boards?
Do you have a good recommendation for parts on line? I will buy both & send back the one that I don't need.
Correct, this units are top servicable. The hardest thing will be pulling the unit, depending on your install. You will want to verify the revision before order boards as they have changed. If you cannot find the tag you could call wolf and give them the address and they should have the unit on record.
Sam do you recommend any online parts sites for this?
Not really, when sub z find people reselling parts, they shut them down.
No problem I have a source here.
Thanks for your help
