Installation Requirements
VENTILATION
Failure to locate the range without the proper clearances will result in a fire hazard.
IMPORTANT NOTE: Caution must be used in planning the
proper installation of the Wolf gas range to avoid fires or
damage to adjacent cabinetry or kitchen equipment.
Follow all minimum clearances to combustible surfaces
shown in the installation illustration for your specific model
on the following pages.
IMPORTANT NOTE: A minimum 5" (127) riser is required
when installing a gas range against a combustible surface.
A minimum 10" (254) riser is required when installing a gas
range with a charbroiler or griddle against a combustible
surface.
Risers and other accessories are available through your
authorized Wolf dealer. To obtain local dealer information,
visit the find a showroom section of our website,
wolfappliance.com.
The gas range must have an adequate supply of fresh air
to assure proper combustion and ventilation. The location
of the range should be away from strong draft areas, such
as windows, doors and strong heating vents or fans. Do
not obstruct the flow of air.
For the cooking surface, fresh air intakes are located
below the bullnose and control knobs. For the oven, there
are fresh air intakes at the bottom front of the kick panel.
Never block the fresh air intakes. Most of the heated air
and burner combustion by-products from the oven(s) exit
through the back riser. Refer to the illustration below.
Due to the high volume of ventilation air required, a source
of outside replacement air is recommended. This is especially important for tightly sealed and insulated homes. A
qualified HVAC contractor should be consulted.

SURFACE BURNERS
Place the burner parts on each burner base and position
the burner grates before lighting.
Surface burners of the gas range use electronic igniters.
When the control knob is pushed in and turned to the
HIGH position, the system creates a spark to light the
burner. This sparking continues until the electronic ignition
senses a flame.
To check operation of the surface burners, push in and
turn each control knob to the HIGH position. The flame
should light within four seconds.
If the burners do not light properly, turn control knobs to
the OFF position. Check that burner parts are in the
proper position. Make sure electricity is being supplied to
the range and that the gas shut-off valve is in the open
position. Check operation again, waiting at least five
minutes; if the burners still do not light properly, contact a
Wolf authorized service center.
IMPORTANT NOTE: Initial lighting of the surface burners
may take slightly longer, as air in the system must be
purged before gas can be supplied to the burner.
OVEN OPERATION
Turn the oven(s) on and verify that they are coming up to
temperature. Refer to the Wolf gas ranges use & care
guide for additional information.
IMPORTANT NOTE: A small amount of smoke and odor
may be noticed during the initial break-in period.
