T​he main gas valve may or may not be the problem. It sounds more like the pressure regulator is the problem. This is the part that usually attaches to the main gas distribution manifold where the gas line connects. If you follow the gas line you can usually locate the pressure regulator. These units are not serviceable and if faulty or clogged need to be replaced. Caution as many of these are where the conversion kits are located if you use a different fuel.

it is the regulator Do I access it from the front, back or top?
HVAC Technician: David Bowden, General Contractor replied 7 months ago

M​ost regulator are accessible from the back or if the top can be lifted up. Careful as many newer stoves are not easy to lift the tops (sealed systems) and you can easily damage the gas burners and tubing.

I​f this is an ongoing issue with the regulator it is best to replace it. These parts are not too expensive, however they are not available at your home improvement centers. You will need to get one from an appliance parts store or online. If you decide to replace it yourself, there are gas flow directions that must be adhered to in order for them to work properly.
