SOURCE: lighting pilot of GE gas stove
According to the model number you supplied it looks like your oven use a glow bar ignitor not a pilot light. In that case there is no place to hold a fire. what happens with these when you turn the oven on 120 volts goes to the ignitor causing it to heat up ,the amp draw across the ignitor causes the gas safety valve to open, and then lights the gas. So if you turn your oven on you should see a bright red glow if not probably the the ignitor, to check it you would have to verify you actually have power going to it. If the ignitor glows but the gas valve does not open you will still need to replace the ignitor has to pull about 3.2 amps across ignitor to open safety valve. Your broil burner works the same way. And most of the ovens the floor of the oven comes out to allow easier acess to the ignitor. also if you have to change the ignitor put just a dab of dish detergent on the screws to help from stripping them

Take your temp knob off and look in the center of the stem and you should find a small set screw. Using a small precision screwdriver, turn the screw until you see the light come on. (You won't have to turn it far.) Turn it a little at a time, maybe a 1/16 of a turn. Leave your thermometer in the oven with the door closed and at or near the temp probe that is in the oven. This way, you are getting a true reading.

Yes the regulators/simmerstats are stuffed but are not hard to replace...but please turn off the power 1st when removeing the backing plate as you will kill yourself....yes you will.
Use a multimeter set on volts ac or a volt detector stick, test tester on a known live sourse 1st like a power point....switched on

From the symptoms you describe, I would say the oven thermostat is faulty, and in need of replacement.
This is the control you regulate the temoperature with.
Hope this helps.
