hi, there is an orfice for the oven located on the gas valve. If you are using LP gas, the orfice should be turn down all the way (counter clockwise). If you are using natural gas, the orfice should be turned out about 2-1/2 turns. Was this oven set up to be used with one gas and noe is being used with another? If so, you will need to do more then adjust orfices. Please let me know if I can assist you further.

Over time, thermocouples erode in pilot flames and when they no longer reach the pilot light they need to be replaced. Check the thermocouple mountings as well: some ham-fisted amateurs try to bend the probe back into the pilot light and break the mountings. The pilot light jet will also need to be checked to ensure that it is clean and that the pilot is burning correctly.
Note that as with all gas appliances, repairs should only be carried out by qualified gas fitters who have the tools and knowledge to leave your appliance in a safe condition. In many countries it's a legal requirement. My reply is therefore given on an informational basis only as poor workmanship on gas appliances is directly attributable to many deaths every year.

You need to replace the thermocouple for both sides of the oven. That is the most common issue with pilot lights and gas burners. The safety shut off will engage when it does not sense any heat, ie: thermocouples.

Hi and welcome to FixYa, I am Kelly.
What you are experiencing is the lack of a signal from the thermocouple to the gas valve. I.e. the thermocouple is not passing heat information at all. This is caused by either a defective thermocouple, a dirty mating area where the thermocouple connects to the gas valve or... an improperly positioned thermocouple that is not "in the flame" with the pilot lit.
You can remove your old thermocouple and walk in to almost any appliance parts supply or Plumbing and heating supply to purchase the correct thermocouple without a part number. They will match it up with yours.
Thanks for choosing FixYa,
