What you're describing would indicate a faulty gas control valve. If the unit is less than 6 years old this is probably a warranty issue.
There's no way I can know how or what causes a failure. We diagnose the problem and repair it. There is a temp sensor that informs the control but your description is far more anomalous than what we would expect from a sensor failure.
