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.

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.

Burner ignitors stay on after burner is lit

Nothing bad can happen if the ignitors stay on but it can be annoying. I remember reading something about this I will try to look it up again.

Sounds like you need to adjust the actual burner valve and not the thermostat control. If they are one in the same try adjusting it. Remove knob and look down the shaft there may be an allen adjusting screw in there

Lofra oven doesent stay alight

I had the same problem with my Lofra, I removed the cover on the bottom of the inside of the oven and then unscrewed the metal bit under that. Then I tested it again so I could see why it wasn't lighting up. Turns out the heat sensor was in between two flames and wasn't detecting that the gas was on. I wiggled things around a bit until it stared working, then put the cover back on. Now it works wonderfully. Now I just have to fix the timer.. It doesn't ring when it reaches the end. Hope this solution works for you guys.

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.

Oven won't stay alight . has never worked from new . have checked all thermocouple connections all seem's well. probe is tight and in correct position.

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.
