does it light then immediately go out? if yes, usually you have to hold in a button to allow gas to flow while you light the pilot, and hold this button until the therm0-couple is heated with the pilot flame. If the thermo-couple is not sufficiently heated and you let go of this button, the pilot light will go out as the safety circuit thinks there's no flame and unburned gas is entering the oven.
The other thing you could do is adjust the height of the pilot flame... there's usually an adjustment screw near the button described above which will allow you to adjust the height of the flame. Make the flame just big enough to guarantee that it keeps the thermo-couple hot AND that it can light the oven without being blown out.

i have the same ovens and you only get the bushings ac far as i know when you buy the door spring assembly .make sure you get the right one because there are 2 sizes ,the older ovens have a thicker bushing.and its not that hard to replace if you can take it apart.that door is very heavy so be careful

Hi, don't know if you received an answer, however your gas valve sounds to be bad, when turned to pilot, it should only allow gas to the pilot assy. The problem is, it has already failed to shut fully, if it still does that with it in the off position, it would still be allowing gas through it, if the pilot goes out, there is now no protection to shut itself off, get it replaced ASAP. Hope that helps, and thank you.

Hello. Usually this problem is related to the pilot being dirty, and
not heating the bulb for the safety device properly/hot enough to fully
open the valve. If you have a general purpose mini torch you can heat
the metal bulb near the pilot with it, if this is the problem, the
safety will open, and the main burner will come on. CAREFUL, you are
not on/around the main burner, as it will allow gas to come on to the
main burner, and if your pilot is not working properly, might not light
the gas. Get the pilot cleaned and adjusted.
or... :) I know... your safety has failed, allowing gas to the pilot, but internally is not opening, this requires replacement. Last though, it could be your thermostat, its last in line, and would require replacement. The safety, and the thermostat are mechanical valves, open or closed depending on its function.
If you have a more current type, they will have a combination valve, and thermopile/thermocouple that are electromechanical, your thermostat at this point can be either mechanical, or electromechanical. This system has a few more possible causes for your symptom.
You can tell which you have by how you light the pilot, have a red button on the front of the unit, by the on/off valve? this is the first type.
Have to open a small door to access a knob, turn it to pilot, and hold in? this is the latter type.
ask if you need more help.
Hope that helps, and thank you.
