Hi,the problem is definately from the gas valve/regulator,its bad and needs to be replaced,here is how you go about with the diagnosis and replacement of the gas valve/regulator .
Remove the bottom drawer. Locate the gas valve/regulator with three electrical solenoids terminals on the back of the range. The middle terminal is Common, the upper terminal is Broil and the bottom terminal is Bake. Mark all wires and remove them from the terminals. Check between each solenoid for 216 Ohms resistance (Broil to Common and Bake to Common). If one of the solenoid is defective, neither one will operate and the gas valve/regulator has to be replaced.

This part is not too difficult to replace yourself if you know how to handle a simple tools. Pull the range out of the wall and shut off the gas. Before you'll remove the wires from the valve/regulator draw a picture of them so you will know where to put them on the new part. Tight all gas line connectors to prevent possible gas leak. Ensure to check all connections with a gas leak detector to make sure everything is safe.
You are done with the fix and the problem is solved.

thanks and take care

Oven will not lite

Unplug the unit, change the igniter maybe it does not draw enough ampage.
or check the gas control knob if somebody mistakenly turned it to off position. the ON position should be inline with the gas pipe.
