Hello. Usually this problem is related to the pilot being dirty, and
not heating the bulb for the safety device properly/hot enough to fully
open the valve. If you have a general purpose mini torch you can heat
the metal bulb near the pilot with it, if this is the problem, the
safety will open, and the main burner will come on. CAREFUL, you are
not on/around the main burner, as it will allow gas to come on to the
main burner, and if your pilot is not working properly, might not light
the gas. Get the pilot cleaned and adjusted.
or... :) I know... your safety has failed, allowing gas to the pilot, but internally is not opening, this requires replacement. Last though, it could be your thermostat, its last in line, and would require replacement. The safety, and the thermostat are mechanical valves, open or closed depending on its function.
If you have a more current type, they will have a combination valve, and thermopile/thermocouple that are electromechanical, your thermostat at this point can be either mechanical, or electromechanical. This system has a few more possible causes for your symptom.
You can tell which you have by how you light the pilot, have a red button on the front of the unit, by the on/off valve? this is the first type.
Have to open a small door to access a knob, turn it to pilot, and hold in? this is the latter type.
ask if you need more help.
Hope that helps, and thank you.

I have a 2yo Kitchenaid oven, and my advice is first, don't use convection for cakes or pizza. Use the thermal oven. For pizza preheat to 500 degrees, then put the pizza on the lowest rack, and bake for 7-8 minutes.This way the bottom browns, and the top doesn't get broiled from the top element coming on during the bake cycle.
As for cakes, again place them on the low rack so that they get bottom heat. I keep my eye on the oven and when the broil element comes on I stick a piece of foil over the cake until it goes off. Otherwise it will set the top and the cake won't rise as much. Even doing that cakes don't rise as much as they did in my old oven, and they brown too much on top.
The convection oven does a good job of cookies, and the broil mode is okay.
I wish I hadn't bought this oven, but I didn't know about the upper (broil) element coming on during the bake cycle until I'd had it for awhile, and it was too late to return it.
If anyone's shopping for an oven, ask questions, and don't get one that maintains the oven temperature by activating the broil element when baking.
