Question about Ovens
If you are liting the oven gas and it stays on for as long as you keep the knob/lever depressed and then goes out when you release the knob/lever, then either you are not depressing the knob/lever for sufficient time to let the sensor heat up or the sensor is no longer in touch with the lited gas, which means it will not heat up, or the sensor/control unit is faulty.

Chances are that you are not letting the sensor heat up. There is a sensor above or near the pilot light that turns off the gas if the flame goes out. This is to prevent the gas from filling your house and we don't want that! Try lighting the pilot light and letting the flame heat the sensor until it gets hot. This should keep the gas flowing. It should take only about 45secs - 1 minute.

It's usually down to carbon clogging the pilot light. This typically happens where gas is on a meter like we have. Everytime the gas runs out, dust and other particles get sucked along into the nozzle where the pilot light is.
The best solution is to try cleaning it. I'd recommend trying to run the vacuum cleaner nozzle over it if you can (with it turned off of course) and perhaps even try cleaning it with a toothbrush (preferably an old one of course as nothing tastes worse than soot) and if this fails, let me know.
