Been there , done that.

The oven rack and the heat deflector tray have to come out first.
Oven door removal ; optional.
Remove the burner tube, then the screws retaining the cover plate.
Some models , it's necessary to remove the burners and top plate to disconnect the supply tube from the control valve rail, to allow enough movement to disconnect the tube, from the t/couple assembly.
Good luck. Do not dis-assemble, replace as a unit.
Shop around , prices can vary , or at least they did , 4 years ago, $85> $149.

Although, there are four screws holding the end of the thermal couple to the safety valve ( just visible through the opening in the cover plate) there is a VERY sensitive spring under the cover. It pops out when the cover is removed, and reinstalling is pure guess work.
When dealing with the assembly on a friends stove, we were unable to find the thermal couple separately , only a valve with T/C attached.
I have pictures on another computer, that my wife has out of town.
I'll post them on the weekend when she gets home.
I guess for liability reasons, the valve manufacturer doesn't want them taken apart.

Edit: I take it that the pilot flame won't stay lit?

No,the pilot stays lite,but it doesn't get the thermocouple hot enough to open. If i heat the thermocople with a long lighter it opens and burner lites fine, untill i removethe heat from the thermocouple and then it goes out. I'm hoping to clean both and see if i can re-position the sensor on the thermocople.

Is it possible that the pilot flame is not hitting the thermocouple? If so, it is usually possible to bend it a little so that it is directly in the flame.

Got it fixed !!!!! Removed the panel above the burner and was able to remove the burner tube with the pilot assembly and thermocouple bracket attached ( after disconnecting the pilot gas line. The orfice in the pilot was partially clogged, cleaned it out with a piece of wireand pilot is twice as strong as before, heated up the thermocouple and the burner lite just fine !!!!!

Thanks All

Thanks Guys
Now that it"s fixed we will have to see if we ever use it ( A must for pizza ) with the microwave. I'm the type of person if it's there it should work !!!.
now the only thing that doesn"t is the tank level gauges, and thats on the low priority level, but then again !!!!!
