Question about Tappan Kitchen Ranges
We can manually light burners or oven, but pilot lights will not stay lit. Once oven is lit, it will stay on. But when we turn it off, the pilot goes off also. Range was in house when we moved in 1999. Cannot find model. Gas range.

Take a very small wire and clean out the pilot holes. Then find the pilot flame adjustment screw and re-set your pilot to 1/4 inch flame.

I just read this here:
that explained how to test if the problem is the thermostat. It said to watch the pilot as you open the thermostat to turn on the oven. If the thermostat is ok the pilot should get bigger, if the pilot does not change when turning on the thermostat, then the thermostat is bad.

If you have standing pilots, make sure the pilot for the oven/broiler is lit as well. When you turn the thermostat up to call for heat, you should see the pilot get larger. That larger pilot flame heats a hydraulic sensor and opens the main burner valve.

SOURCE: Oven pilot light won't light
It is usually a bad thermocouple. Mine had only had a weak pilot flame and the problem turned out to be a corroded and leaking pilot gas line. It was leaking whee it enters at the bottom of the oven chamber.

You probably have grease that has gotten into the pilot. Turn off the gas to the pilot and detach the pilot tubing and pilot tip. It sometimes helps to take a propane torch and heat up the pilot tip and tubing, paying special attention to the first bend from the pilot tip. Get it red hot and tap out any ash from the inside. You may have to **** out the tubing with a piece of bare wire or blow it out with WD-40. With the oven pilot, check the pilot flame. If low, adjust. If OK, replace the thermocouple. If neither of these corrects the problem, replace the pilot satety. I always recommend a new thermocouple with a new pilot safety.
