3 month old GE Stove JGBS60REKSS has dangerous burner knobs. Merely brushing against the knobs can turn burners on releasing gas.Usually, I've smelled it and turned it off. It has happened often enough that I routinely check the knobs before leaving the house.

The other morning I was cooking a pan of eggs on the back burner and had a deli package of cheese by the front burner. I must have brushed the front knob, but was busy & distracted and didn't notice the gas smell. The flame from the back burner must have ignited the front. There was a sudden sound and burst of flames. I was right there, didn't get burnt and it was okay.

I worry that the same thing could happen when I'm not at the stove, possibly when something is cooking for a long time on the simmer burner.

I feel that GE should replace the knobs with others that require some effort to turn on.
