Default Gas cooker problem

CANNON

CAMBRIDGE MK2

Main Oven:
Once the burner is ignited, it operates in 'SAFETY MODE' (low flame) after 1
minute the burner should operate
with a 'FULL FLAME', but the flame stays in Safety Mode.

Note: The grill, top oven & hotplates work & the cooker is not set for an
AUTO COOKING PROGRAMME.

Any ideas?

The bi-metallic safety device has failed or is covered in gunge(TM).

The over whelming majority of ovens use a metal bulb flame sensor which
operates on the gas valve to move the flame up to the full rate.
However the themrostat could have gone wrong:

1) Check you don't have a duff themrostat by turning to 'Regulo 9'
2) Chekc that there is nothing stopping the low-rate flame from heating
the flame sensor bulb.

If both of the above don't help then you are looking at the a new gas
valve for the oven.
