Default Oven only lights if top burner is on
Model Number: JGBP90MEH3BC   Brand: GE   Age: 5 - 10 years

I have a strange problem with my GE gas oven. The oven will not ignite unless a stove-top burner is turned on.

If I turn on the bake function, the igniter glows orange, but the gas does not start flowing to it. Once I light a stove top burner, something triggers the gas to start flowing to the oven, and it ignites. Once the oven is lit, I can turn off the stove top burner, and the oven will heat up to whatever temperature it is set to. However, once it reaches the desired temperature and the gas shuts off, it will not re-light to maintain the temperature unless a stove top burner is on.

I replaced the igniter, but this did not solve the problem. I have also replaced the control board, but that didn't do the trick either.

One repair man diagnosed it as being possessed.

Does anyone have any ideas?? Could a malfunctioning control valve cause this?
