Hello, my name is George.. Do you mean the flame reduces, or as you have said 'the gas pressure goes down'?

Kindly be patient whilst awaiting any responses from me as I'm not constantly available.

after lighting the pilot light for the oven it flares up as normal but after 5 mins or so the flame reduces down to the lowest setting even if the knob is turned to broil , wondering lf it is pressure or the actual knob

Thank you Peter, does the pressure of the rings reduce at the same time?
Customer: replied 2 years ago.

NO they seem to be fine

Expert:  George-Allsorts replied 2 years ago.

Then the problem is with the thermostat of the oven..

Here is a link to one for your model

Be sure to have a professional Gas Safe Engineer replace the part, as changing the part requires breaking into the gas system of the appliance
