My oven has the dial that shows pilot then a slight turn to on, then full turn to all on. If your pilot lights but the oven it self doesn't, I would check your burner tube( turn off the propane before you go looking) to see if you have a spider nest blocking the tube. Could also be a pressure regulator or control board if it's electrically controlled.

On more than one I have seen the pilot light misaligned with the thermocouple. Use a propane lighter and heat the tip of the thermocouple with the oven set on 250 or above. Be ready to withdraw if the burner lights. If it does, let it cool down. Then see if the bottom tray of the oven will come out. Sometimes you can press it towards the back slightly, then lift and then pull it out. Then remove the heat pan that covers the burner. See if the pilot light is directly under the end of the thermocouple. Move if necessary.

Grew up with Gas appliances.. Here is how it works on the Attwood Oven.

The attwood oven works like a old gas water heater. Turn to LIGHT, and press, Light the pilot and HOLD for 1 minute (usually you can get by with less) then turn to temp, Main burner should light.

The pilot warms a thermocouple which powers an electro magnet in the valve, if you release before the magnet comes up to full strength the valve is closed, if the thermocouple is up to full power, the magnet holds.

Possible causes of low power:

Pilot dirty, due to spiders or whatever, keeping the gas from flowing

Pilot adjustment not set correctly

Bad thermocouple or dirty thermoucple preventing proper operation

Bad connection (Electrical even if it does not look like one) to the valve.

Bad valve.

Alas, hard to figure it out.

Mine needs only a few seconds to set the magnet, then the burner lights.
Home is where I park it!

Thanks for the ideas. You will not believe the fix. I finally had a tech come out. He took one look at my stove, and asked if I had a piece of paper. I gave him a small piece of paper and he took the oven knob off and wadded the paper up and stuck it inside the knob. He then lit the oven and waa laaa it worked. He said this particular year of this model they made the knob too deep and it pushed on the "safety valve?" and shut the gas off. I'm not sure, what it was called,but it worked.
