It will most likely be the thermostat that is faulty and will neeed replacing. If it wwas the safety device then you would not get any gas at all.

Its 99.9% certain it is not the thermostat, it is either the fsd or a blockage on the burner. Contrary to what 57 says, you will get a low rate of gas through to the burner when the safety device has gone.

Oven will not respond


The knob won't have any effect on the flame size.  The knob controls temperature.  If you're referring to the pilot light staying on and then the main flame not going on...that's another problem.  If the main flame will not go on, the assembly that controls the main flame is likely defective.  If the unit has a thermocouple, you might change it out first.  Sometimes, that's all that is needed and they're cheap.

Reading the user manual, it states that the flame initially comes on low, until it is "sensed" by the flame sensing device. This to me sounds suspiciously like the flame isn't being sensed and so never gets increased to the normal level.
I've not had time for a proper look at it.... but from a quick glance this morning this looked like a "flame rectifier" probe next to my burner (as we commonly use in boilers to sense if the gas burner is lit). This is just a metal probe. They send a high-ish AC voltage signal (Sine wave) from it, through the flame, to the earthed metal case. The flame acts like a diode (yes it really does work !) and simple electronics detects the change in the applied signal (rectified) due to the flame. I know from personal experience they (the probes) get coated with crud (carbon, etc) and need a good clean. I suggest you try cleaning both it and the metal area opposite it. If necessary the probes metal tip could be GENTLY rubbed with very fine Emmery cloth, etc, if badly coated.
Other than that, if it is sensing the flame, then it must be the gas control device (solenoid valve ?) that is jammed, blocked or just defective.
Simples......

It sounds exactly the same as I am experiencing on my oven of the same model. My theory is that the full flame gas is controlled by a thermostat, and that this has broken hence why the oven only stays on preheat. This will be a matter of a replacement part. Most likely the thermostat is a bi-metal strip that, because it has heated and cooled so many times in it's life it has simply finally given up. Try searching online for the correct part and get a corgi registered fitter or another suitably qualified fitter to come and replace it.

Left hand oven not getting hot!!


some older ovens did use one side just as a "bread warmer"...only way to tell for sure is to check if there is a burner below the left side
