wire brush the oven pilot light orifix flame may be lessened due to carbon buildup then when oven lights its convextion pulls the pilot flame away from thermal coupling with shuts off gas (in case wind blows it out, it will STOP the GAS FLOWING. if the pilot full size (near 3/4 inch tall) then just try to position the thermal coupling nearer the flame (not right on it)

That could be one of 3 things: The thermocouple could be bad, the hole that the thermocouple screws into could have corrosion and causing a loss of electrical current to the safety magnet. Or the safety magnet itself is bad. The thermocouple when heated generates electricity. The magnet inside the valve is powered by the thermocouple. If the pilot light goes out the magne looses energy and the spring attached to it shuts off the flow of gas. Pretty clever ain't it?

Hi, it is your thermocouple. It's worth having a look first prior to getting someone to replace it though. You will see a small "probe" that sits in the flame which is the thermocouple, this is the fail safe device that cuts off the gas should the flame go out. When it heats up it keeps the gas on but when it cools (when the flame goes out) it will not let any gas through unless you have the knob held in. Three checks:
