HELP NEEDED WITH GAS OVEN......wont stay lit!!!

BEKO Gas oven SG572

Worked fine then all of a sudden we went to use it and now when we hold the knob in the gas comes out and the ignition does light the oven but we would normally hold it in for a bit for it then let go and it would stay lit......but now it just goes out straight away?? why is this and can we fix it or do we need a new oven??

The oven its self is only about 5yrs old the gas hob and grill both still work fine. Any help would be much appriectiated!

Thanks in advance x x

Hello daglishg002 and Welcome to the Gas Appliances topic.

Most likely, the safety element in the oven that the flame is heating is defective. Another possible cause is the pilot flame is dusty or dirty causing the flame to not be as hot as it should be. You might try cleaning the pilot assembly first. Blowing the dust out of the pilot assembly is explained in the sticky note here: Range-Stove-Oven-Broiler Basic Help Information, Fault Codes & Mg's Web Site Links Range/Stove/Oven/Broiler Info, Leak Detection, Fault Codes, Fuel Conversion & Links - Community Forums

Retail appliance parts dealers can also help determine what the possible problem may be also. They will need the make, model an serial numbers. Appliance parts dealers are an excellent source for original replacement parts. Dealers are listed in the phone book under appliances.

When you attempt any repairs, "Be sure the electrical power to the appliance is turned off, before attempting any repairs. Always check for gas leaks whenever the appliance is moved and/or a repair includes any connection of a gas part."
