Question about Ovens
The oven wont stay alight after holding down the temperature knob. I understand I have to replace the thermocouple but the grill wont ignite at all. Are they both linked or do they have a separate thermocouple
Normally the grill is completely separate to the oven. Press the ignitor before you turn on the grill, as, to ignite, oxygen needs to be present (ie: not flooded with gas) . and you should be able to see the spark from the ignitor in the grill. if you can't, then you may have problems with your ignition pack or ignition leads.

This oven is provided with a gas safety- the oven knob has a thermoswitch system: inside the knob valve there's a switch that is controlled by a thermostat , it allows the passing of the gas only after it has been heated. For that to work you must keep the knob pressed for at least 10 seconds after the burner has been lit - the time needed for the thermostat to heat up and allow the gas flow.
Your problem is caused by a faulty knob valve: the safety system of the knob is not disengaged after the thermostat gets hot. You will have to replace it: beware, the tube of the thermostat goes all the way to the burner of the oven and it's hard to replace, it will be a long and fiddly job
