Help troubleshooting a JFET circuit.

Hi there, Sean.
You are forgetting about current that flows through the gate resistor to Ground. This is a J-FET, so the gate diode junction is forward biased if Rs is open.
Another possibility that Rs is very high value. I haven't bothered to work out the math for the possible high value.
