No Buns in this Oven

I have an '84 31' Excella w/Magic Chef Oven (I believe is original, but not certain). Range works fine - I think both the oven thermocouple and oven thermostat/gas supply knob are both bad. Have taken thermocouple apart and the bimetal strip just wont expand regardless of heat put to it. However, even by forcing thermocouple open oven still won't respond to thermostat - just burns without regard to heat setting.

Any suggestions on what's up with this - or best source for a replacement oven?
