Kenmore 79036673400 range where the oven keeps shutting off after 2 minutes.

The cook top burners work fine. There is no issue there. When I go to use the oven, though, it lights and stays on for just about two minutes, then it shuts off. Within a few minutes, without changing anything, you can hear the igniter click and the oven burner lights again. It stays on for two minutes. Then off again. It will repeat this cycle until I turn the oven off. The oven does produce some heat during the short time the burner is on, but never enough to reach a pre-heat or baking temp. Someone recommended a flame sensor, but it looks like this model only has a single safety valve, which is for both the cook top and the oven. I was told to verify the issue it would most likely take testing components with a multimeter. Can you provide step by step instructions on what to test, how to test, and any images/wiring diagrams I might need to troubleshoot this model?
