Gas Range-oven won't shut off!

My son recently bought a house which included appliances. First the gas dryer stopped working. Got that fixed by telling him how to check various components for continuity (it was the glow ignitor). Now the gas oven on Sears Hotpoint - Model RGB744GEN2WH will not shut off. (He has turned off the gas and electricity to the unit). I checked the various repair web sites but couldn't find any info on this problem. Does this sound like a bad gas valve or could some other component cause this problem?
Thanks for any help, Larry

Hi,

How will it not shut off....turn the oven off and it keeps going, temp keeps going up and up and not shutting off at the desired temp, gas still flows when the control is shut off??

If the bourdon tube that runs from the oven control into the oven ( to sense the oven temp ) is broken or damaged, the control may allow the temp to keep going up and up in the oven. Welded closed contact in the oven control could give a similier problem as well.

Hi jeff, Sorry it took so long but I got busy on other things and couldn't get back until now. Thanks for your reply. Oven control valve (what I referred to as the gas valve) was what I told my son to check out. Just didn't know if anything else might cause or contribute to the problem. He's taking care of it now.
Thanks again,Larry

My (electric) oven had a similar problem, I was surprised that the hob felt warm when the oven hadn't been used for a day or two, and worked out that the oven was on even though the knob was turned to "off". Opened the cooker up (hob section lifts up), the control had come off its mounting so the whole thing turned when the knob was turned! Simple job to screw it back in place.
YMMV but thought I'd share in case it helps at all...
