We have a Magic Chef with Uniburners that was purchased on June 19, 1976. Propane hook up. The oven started to not regulate the heat as well, and now will not turn on. The pilot light is on. We have taken apart the burner and made sure it was not clogged with anything. Any help would be GREATLY appreciated.

If the pilot flame is fully engulfing the safety valve sensor bulb but the valve is not opening to allow gas to flow, you can try cleaning that sensor bulb but the safety valve itself is likely the problem.

The Robershaw safety valve seen in the picture has been discontinued for years so finding a replacement is pretty unlikely. There is however one company I know that rebuilds them. You can contact them at the following link:
