Have you tried pushing it in slightly before turning?

Actually... pushing in, is sometimes the issue.

You do have to push in, turn and hold to light the pilot but once the pilot is lit and the knob released, you then simply turn the knob. Same when completely shutting down... slight push to the total off position.

My DW had a heck of a time learning that,

From the Suburban manual...

B. OVEN BURNER
NOTE: Before the oven burner will operate, the oven pilot must be lit.
1. Lighting Oven Pilot.
a. Be sure ALL valves are in the "OFF" position. The oven control knob
should be in the'OFF" position.
b. Be sure main gas supply is on.
c. Open oven door; smell for gas - lf you smell gas STOP Read and follow
the instructions on front of your manual.
d. lf you do not smell gas, turn knob to the pilot position ), "Push to
Lite Pilot".
e. Immediately light pilot with a match. Hold knob in at least 5 to 7 seconds
for this allows gas to flow to pilot and to heat thermocouple. Release knob,
pilot should stay on. Note: lf the appliance has not been operated for a
long period of time, a longer waiting period for ignition of the pilot may be
due to air in the pilot and gas lines. lf pilot goes out, repeat steps a, b, c, d.
2. Operation of Oven Burner:
a. Turn the oven control knob counter-clockwise" ! to the desired
setting.
Oven burner will come on immediately and the oven burner will
stay on until it reaches the desired setting. Then the oven burner flame will
decrease in size. This is normal for this type of thermostat and this flame
size will maintain a constant temperature within the oven.
NOTE: Oven thermostat was calibrated at the factory and is not field
adjustable.
b. For broiling, a 2-piece porcelain broiler pan can be purchased from
Suburban:
1. Center the broiler pan underneath the oven burner flame.
2. Turn the food over frequently to ensure even browning.
3. To Shut Down Oven Burner:
a. Turn oven control knob clockwise C to "pilot On" position. At this
position, the oven pilot will remain lit.
4. To Shut Down Oven Pilot:
a. Slightly depress knob and turn clockwise" to "Off" position. At this
position, the oven pilot will go out.

Yes. I tried pushing it in; tried to turn it up; tried to turn it down.

It finally allowed me to turn it off after about 30 minutes.

Does that sound normal?
