Re: Light indicator when burner is turned on will not...
If there is one light for all the switches, you will need to unplug the unit, take off the top part of the back panel to get access to your switches. the indicator light is run to all 4 switches. you will need to unplug the wire that goes to the indicator light from each switch ( only one at a time ) and plug the unit back in each time. do this for every switch until the light goes out. whichever switch has the indicator light wire removed from it when the light goes out is the switch that needs to be replaced. if your unit has an indicator light for each switch, then just replace the switch that is above the indicator light.

Under your knobs are burner switches, 3 of them are the same, so this will be a hit and miss on getting them but possible. Each burner should trigger the ignition system. This will be needed to be inspected to find out which one needs to be replace. If you get the right person to look over the unit they could tell you if it can be repaired. I worked on one about 3 years ago and it worked out fine. Good Luck and I hope this helped.
I see that you are having trouble with the element light staying on after all power control knobs have been put into the off position on your Frigidaire range, model# FEF366EC. The Element ON indicator lights will glow when one or more of the surface elements are turned ON. A quick glance at these indicator lights when cooking is finished is an easy check to be sure all control knobs are turned OFF. The Hot Surface indicator light will continue to glow AFTER the control knob is turned to the OFF position and will glow until the heating surface area has cooled sufficiently. I suggest resetting your appliance by shutting the power off at your home's circuit breaker for 2-3 minutes. Once power is restored, the first thing you will need to do is set the clock. You will do this by pressing the "clock" button, and then you will press and hold down either the up or down arrows until the correct time appears. Try turning the burner on that the indicator light stays on the most. When you turn it off if you are still having trouble with the element light staying on, I suggest contacting a local authorized technician. Hope this helps.
When the indicator light does not shut off when the burners are turned to the off position, this indicates one of the infinites switches are shorted. If comfortable with electricity, unplug the unit and remove the rear cover exposing the infinite (burner) switches. Using a bright flashlight, shine directly on one of the switches and you will see the following markings. L1 - L2 - H1 - H2, and then the Letter P. This letter P is for the pilot light. Since there is no way of determining which switch is shorted, remove the wire from the letter P on one switch. Isolate the wire removed so it is not touching anything. Place a piece of black electrical tape around the end to be safe. Next, plug it back in. If the light is still lit, move on to the next one until you have found the switch that once the wire is removed, the light does not light anymore. Replace that infinite/burner switcha nd all is well. If I can help further, I am here.
Look at the back of your range there should be schemetic for your power control board. look for defective burner wire going into relay. There should be 5 relays in rows. Realy is the problem. I had the same problem with my front left burner stuck on high. After replacing everything works okay.
