Most oftentimes, this is an issue with the thermocouple that tells the valve when to open. It could be that the pilot is not heating it well or it is weak. Turn the oven on and access the burner tube area. Once the oven lights, use a long handled screwdriver (or anything hard) and tap on the burner tube and pilot tube area to get and "gunk" to come out. You will likely see a good deal of orange and sparkling bits when you do that. Continue until the sparkling bits are no longer present. Any change?
Yes, tap the pilot and see what happens when you turn the oven on. Does the flame increase to engulf the thermocouple?
They are going to charge you $150 to do this, but okay. Take care.
