ok that sounds like it may be the oven thermostat, Part 895540when you turn the knob the thermostat sends more gas to the pilot and makes the flame bigger which in turn heats the safety thermal couple which then opens the safety valve , Part(NNN) NNN-NNNN width=this is a job for a professional gas tech though, a leak when installing this could be fatal. I would recommend calling a tech to service this, hope this helps, thanks, Bryan
