Question about Kitchen Ranges
The new stove has just been installed and the oven fan noise is unbearably loud. The fan runs constantly during the bake mode. Is this likely a fan problem or is the fan noise a feature of this model?

Thanks for providing the full model number, which allows us to look up part numbers and see exploded views of your product.
Most likely the bake ignitor is bad (even if it still glows, it may not draw enough amperage to allow the gas safety valve to open). One way you can test this on your model is to swap out the broil ignitor for the bake ignitor, as they are the same part number on your model. (part number WB13T10045) The broiler is normally used much less than the oven, so the part does not fail very often on the broiler. You will have to take the cover off the floor of the oven, then the flame spreader, to reach the burner area. The ignitor is the rectangular part at the back, on the side of the burner. (only two wires to deal with) (By the way, for future reference, your model number ends is SS, as in stainless steel, not a 55)

SOURCE: can't get oven to heat over 175
not very specific in your statement, so I'll venture a few things to look at.
Check to see that it is getting the correct power (voltage). Could be wired wrong.
Several things could be causing this. If electric, wrong or low voltage. If it is new, just out of the box, then it could have received some shipping damage. Delivery trucks never hit potholes (Ha Ha). A simple wire could be loose or probe knocked out of position.
Something is telling the controls that the desired temp is reached and the unit it cycling off.
This may or may not be a simple fix.

We had the same problem, and we tricked it into running it's cycle be doing the following;
1. Wrap a wet paper towel around the probe, plug it in, and close the door. Then follow the temp. probe directions in the manual:
2. Set probe temp. at 130 degrees, then select a bake cycle. We selected convect bake.
3. Set oven temp for 275 degrees, but maybe any temp over the probe temp would work.
4. Then start. The cycle took 12 minutes to complete, and when it was finished, turn the oven off and then open the door and unplug the probe.
5. Now everything works fine.
