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.

Gas ovens normally suppose to start after 45sec-1 min. If oven starts after 2-3 min and flame very low and thermostat indicator light stays on - replace glow ignitor.

Better call maker and have them come out and fix it before something bad happens (still under warranty?).
Either that or return it!!!

Push knob in on oven sparks & lights release knob flames go out


Often on ovens you have to hold the knob down for a period of time before the flame will stay alight.


Try getting the oven lit then holding the knob down for 30 seconds. That should be more than enough time if that is indeed the problem.

Is it a new oven or has the problem just arisen? It

Top oven wont stay alight


Seems the Thermocouple (instrument that lets the oven know the gas is lit) is not working properly. Your ignitor is working thus allowing the gas to burn...but the heat is not moving down the thermo line to register as being lit. Thus the oven thinks gas is being pumped but not burning and turns off as a safety precaution. THere must be a thermostat sensor...usually a wire or tube that allows the heat from the burning flame travel towards a sensor...this is faulty...remove and replace.

Westinghouse oven LPG 527 wont stay alight and grill wont start


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.
