Locate in the bottom of the oven is a cover you will need to lift this cover and re-light the pilot, this will allow you to use the oven.

When I turn the oven down the gas goes off and have to start again

read the user manual as the temp should be thermostat controlled were with gas there is always a pilot light burning when the oven is in use and when the set temp is reached the gas burner is shut off and when the temp fall below set point , the gas is turned on again and the pilot light starts the burner
by using the timer , when the time is reached the gas is turned off and of course you will have to relight it
if you do not have a user manual , download one from google or talk with a gas repair shop

Why isn't stove relighting?

The oven burner igniter
commonly known as the hot surface igniter is used in modern gas oven burners to open the gas valve and to ignite the gas. As the igniter draws electric current it will heat to a high temperature and glow, as well as cause the bi-metal in the oven safety valve to warp and open the valve releasing the gas to be ignited. This sequence normally takes about a minute. Igniters come in both flat and round styles and are very fragile. If the burner does not light then you should check the igniter first. If the igniter does not glow at all, then check for power to the circuit. This is a live voltage check and should be performed by a qualified person. If power is present then the igniter may be open circuit and can be checked for continuity with a multi-meter. If the igniter is glowing, but the burner is not lighting, the igniter may be weak and still be at fault because it requires a certain amount of current draw to open the valve. This check requires the use of an amp meter and should be performed by a qualified person. If the igniter is defective then it must be replaced.
: rememberI offer free advice bcuz God is so good!

The oven safety valve
(also called the gas valve) is the part that ensures that gas is not released until the igniter has reached the correct temperature needed to ignite the gas. While this part can fail, it is uncommon. If the hot surface igniter does not glow you should first verify that you have voltage to the circuit. This is a live voltage check and should be performed by a qualified person. If voltage is lost at the valve terminals then you should verify the continuity of the bi-metal in the valve using a multi-meter.

Oven not baking correctly, cakes overdone on outside and middle is real gooey. Checked temps with fluke digital meter @ 350 convect (fan running) 1st cycle....High 393 Low 326 2nd cycle... " ...

check your oven tempreture sensor do an ohms test on it should be reading between 1000-1100 ohms also you can do an ampere reading on the ignitor itself should be drawing between 3-3.3 amps any less would constitute a weak ignitor and would also cause a similar issue but your unit is heating well past the amount that you are presetting I would check the oven tempreture sensor first and if it gives a low reading of below 1000 replace the sensor itself your unit is getting to hot at first which would lead me to the sensor first whereas with an ignitor being weak it would take longer to relight the ignitor and the tempreture would fall much lower then 320 If you have any further questions message me back and please remember to rank how this opinion has helped it allows me to continue helping others in similar situations in the future Thanks again Rick

The gas oven will preheat but not stay hot. What part is causing this to happen?

you would have to do an ampere test on the ignitor to see if its drawing 3-3.3 amps if its not it would need to be changed what actually happens is the ignitor take longer to ignite the gas when the tempreture sensor on the inside indicates that the tempreture has reached the desired level it shuts down the gas when it drops to a certain level it turns it back on and trys to relight the gas 3-3.3 is the factory setting on the ignitor any less and it would either not light the gas or take alot longer please message me back if you have any further questions and please remember to rank how this chat has helped in your appliance situation Merry Christmas and thanks again

If this is an Electric over, the heating element is damaged. The device has a open connection. These element break down often. Usually, the manufaction will sell this whole element as one fixture. They are usually easy to replace.

If it is a Gas oven, the polit is out. Sometimes they go out, and its ok to relight them. But this sounds like an Electric over!
