Problem 2: Faulty Control Board

A control board is responsible for regulating the temperature and time of the oven.

If the control board goes bad, the oven doesn’t heat up properly and turns off before/after the set time.

First off, unplug the Wolfgang Puck Pressure oven.

Step 2: Wait and restart

Wait at least 3 minutes, and plug in the oven to restart.

Problem 3: Poor Broiling

The broiler in the Wolfgang Puck Pressure oven is located at the top. It provides high heat to the food and adds a grilling effect.

Unlike baking which provides top and bottom low heat, broiling cooks food faster by providing high heat from the top. 

Troubleshooting Problem # 3

Step 1: Disconnect the oven

First off, disconnect the oven from the main source.

Step 2: Locate the terminals

Locate the terminals of the broiling element. To access them, remove the oven’s back panel.

    • Hi Sheila,

      Have you been able to fix your problem by now? If not, can you please provide some details on where you are from so that I can recommend you how to find the element?


    • Hi there,

      Thank you for reaching out on my blog. I’m sorry to hear that the heating element of your Wolfgang Puck pressure oven isn’t working.

      While I don’t sell appliance parts directly, I’d recommend checking with the official Wolfgang Puck website or customer service for replacement parts. Additionally, online marketplaces like Amazon, eBay, or specialized appliance parts websites might have the specific part you’re looking for.

      It’s also a good idea to consult with a local appliance repair shop. They might have the part in stock or be able to order it for you. Remember to always ensure that the replacement part is compatible with your oven model.

      Lastly, before replacing the part, consider seeking professional advice to confirm that the heating element is indeed the issue. Sometimes, problems can be caused by other components or electrical issues.

      I hope this helps, and wish you the best of luck with your repair. If you have any more questions, feel free to ask!

      Warm regards,

    • Hi Dana,

      I appreciate you reaching out, and I’m sorry to hear about the timer issue with your pressure oven. To address this, let’s start with a simple power cycle—turn off and unplug the oven for at least 5 minutes, then restart. If the problem persists, check the timer knob for any obstructions or damage. Additionally, inspect the wiring for loose connections and tighten them if necessary. Consult your user manual for timer calibration instructions, if applicable.

      Let me know if the problem persists. I can give you a quick call to discuss further.
