Sometimes a thermocouple just needs rubbed witl a little 220 sand paper to clean it up

You do have to hold the button in for a while to let the thremocouple heat up. If you don't the fire will go out.

Did that each time. The pilot would stay lit if I left it just on pilot. At first when I turned the over on, it would light, but then when I checked it later, everything was out. Then the last time I tried it, all that would happen is the pilot would blow out when I tried to turn the oven on (even though the pilot had been lit for 10 minutes).

Watch the thermocouple when the pilot is lit and then turn on the oven and look at the flame. One thought is that when the oven is running, not enough flame is getting to it? Since it is staying lit with just the pilot, it may not be a bad thermocouple but a simple adjustment?

That's a thought. Try moving thermocouple more over flame or adjusting pilot a little higher.

Same Problem

I have a 365 BHS 2010 and my oven is doing the exact problem. You light the pilot and oven will stay on for 5-10 minutes. You open the door and the oven is not on. I have re-lite the oven at least 30 times to cook Thanksgiving Turkey in the oven. My propane tanks are full and I even switched the tanks. Taking in to dealer for warranty work this weekend.

Are these Atwood stoves with the oven issues or Suburban?

Let me know what happens at the dealer.

As far as what kind of stove it is, I am not sure. I'll check this weekend when I go out to the camper to drop off some stuff.

I think the only adjustment is to move things around a bit. The weak flame is a good point to check. When the main burner valve opens there will be a "puff" as the gas starts flowing. If the pilot flame is weak it could get blown out before igniting the gas.
I'd monkey around with it before hauling it to the dealer - I don't like anyone else working on my cars either. That's just me tho.

The flame on the pilot light is not weak and the stove works fine. I have several problems needing repair on my camper. The camper is still under warranty, so let them fix it.
