SOURCE: what could be causing this?
i service these ovens alot and my first guess the t-couple you already replaced.i wouldnt think its the valve.lp burns very dirty as you know,clean out the burner/pilot assmbely and see if this solves it.also take a look at it when its lit and see if the pilot is being pulled to the burner.let me know.also if the unit has a regulator on the back pull the vent plug and clean it up.

SOURCE: gas valve or ignitor
the problem 99% of the time is the ignitor. even though its glowing its not pulling enough amps to open the bi-metal in the gas valve. id replace both ignitors if yours has two

A pilot light and a ignitor do the same thing. no unit would have both.
Perhaps you are confusing the thermo-coupling for an ignitor. An ignitor (glow plug style) is ceramic with a conductive coating on the end powered by electricity supplied by two high temperature coated wires that connect to the oven controller.
A replaceable thermo-couple looks like a copper tube with a elongated bulb at one end and a fitting at the other. The bulb is placed in the pilot flame and the fitting screws into the gas valve.
I am looking at a exploded diagram for the model number you listed. The unit uses a "safety valve" with the thermo-couple incorporated into it. To see the exploded view, click here If
you are asked for a model #, use CPL1100ADW. In section 2, gas controls, Diagram location 17 is the safety valve. Click on the part photo for a better view of the valve.
If you have any questions, let me know. Hope this gets your unit up and running again.
Please take the time to give this solution a fix ya rating,

hi, there is an orfice for the oven located on the gas valve. If you are using LP gas, the orfice should be turn down all the way (counter clockwise). If you are using natural gas, the orfice should be turned out about 2-1/2 turns. Was this oven set up to be used with one gas and noe is being used with another? If so, you will need to do more then adjust orfices. Please let me know if I can assist you further.

Yes you're right the gas valve failed.
Good luck, Dickson

Please be careful
when converting appliances form natural gas to propane. Depending on the
equipment there are several changes that need to be made. You will at least
have to change burner orifices and convert or replace the gas valve. Some gas
valves are not convertible. What many people over look are changing the pilot
orifice and on some appliances like braising pans, griddles and char broilers
there is a runner tube orifice. The gas valve also needs to be adjusted to the
proper manifold pressure and pilot adjustments will be required. I recommend on Vulcan equipment that you
contact Hobart Service since they are factory trained on all Vulcan cooking equipment.
