To post a more specific solution you need to have the model number, but with the info you have given, I'm guessing that you have hooked the range up to LP gas and the range was not fully converted from natural to LP. If all burners burn nice, whomever converted the range may have missed one step. Many ranges with pilot lights have a small slot head screw behind the oven temp set knob which turns one way for natural, one way for LP.

Got new oven but can't get it to stay alight, when u release holding in button it goes out is there a certain way u have to light ie door shut open?

get a gas fitter in to check out the fault for a new stove /oven
could be that the gas solenoid is not connected correctly and only works when you have your finger on the button
it may also be a fault in the light sensor that when you take the finger of the button it looses the power supply and turns off the gas solenoid.

Burners n broiler lite up fine, oven will not .... pilot out?

Does it have electronic ignition or pilot. You don't say. Check the thermocouple. That is usually why most ovens fail even when overhead broiler works. The Thermocouple is a probe that heats up either by pilot or igniter and turns the gas on when it reaches the proper temperature. You can sometime take a little steel wool and clean off the probe..sometimes that will do it. Make certain you are cleaning the thermocouple and not the thermostat probe.. Thermocouples are right near the burner itself. If that does not work you will need a new one.. some screw out and can be replaced.. others may be sealed to the gas manifold. You will then have to call a repair man to replace it.

How to fix problems with hob not staying alight on rangemaster lpg

If you are holding the knob in for a good few seconds and finding that it still goes out, the thermocouple has failed on that hob. The thermocouple is the metal spike sticking up when you take the ceramic plate and carrier off each ring. First check that the ring pieces are correctly sitting on the cooker, but if they are you will need that thermocouple replacing.

Oven going out

Is the oven manually lit or automatic? How long does it run for before going out, or does it go out straight away after lighting it?
Check the burner for grime build up near the electrode or thermocouple probe. If it is a manual oven, the thermocouple may need replacing (check the tip to see if it is burnt away.

Hi When I try to light the gas oven, it will light but as soon as I release the button the flame goes out

Are you giving the thermocouple time to warm up?
You have to hold the oven knob in for a while to warm the thermocouple before the oven will stay alight. If you are doing this then the thermocouple needs replacing.

See my other posts for a link and price as it was at that time.

Gas stovetop works but oven will not come on. Digital display shows that it is on but the oven does not come on.

sounds like you have a bad gas ignitor. It is under the bottom plate and sits on the burner and is held in with 2 1/4 inch screws.8273075 should be the part number for your ignitor....the model number you gave is incomplete so it's hard to tell but hopefully that will help you out

The oven will light but will not stay alight. Do you think the thermostat is broken?

Generally, there is an item called a thermocouple which is a safety sensor built into the gas valve.  This is a thin tube with a through 'bolt' on the end that screws into the valve.  It is supposed to sit near the burner.  It sees the burner lighting...or not.  If the unit is bad, the burner gas is shut off.  Find it, remove it, noting the exact placement.  Take it to the appliance parts guy and get a new one and install it.  If this doesn't fix it, the valve is bad.
