The oven makes a popping sound when the burn is lit and bringing oven up to temp. You can watch the pilot light fluctuate in rythum with the popping sound. Once the oven reached temp the burner shuts off, but the pilot also goes out, and will not relight till oven cools a bit. When the burner shuts off at temp and the pilot goes out, there is good gas flow to the stove top because I've lit ALL three burners at the same time and they burn normal with nice blue flame. Once I get the pilot relit and the burner on, the pilot pops again till it reaches temp and then everything shuts off again.
