Question about GE JGBP24 Gas Kitchen Range
I seem to be working on the same problem. What I found bothers me. As a safety feature, the hot surface igniter, (HSI), is in series with the gas valve. If the HSI is dead, then there is no gas flow, which is a good thing. However, if the HSI has increased in resistance, as mine has, it still allows the gas valve to open partially. Not quite enough gas flow to support an ignition but, enough to allow gas to escape. I would suspect your HSI increases resistance after you get a flame causing the gas valve to close long enough for the flame to stop, then the HSI decreases it's resistance enough to allow the gas valve to partially open. Please verify this on your own as I am just a regular home owner myself.
