Question about Whirlpool 30 in. RC8700 Electric Cooktop
I have a whirlpool ceramic cooktop stove and the "hot surface" light will not go off. Any suggestion? Thanks Scott
On each of the heating elements there is a thermostat that does two things. It is a high limit safety thermostat and then a different set of contacts turn on the hot surface light. Unfortunately, you can't just replace that part. You will need to isolate which element it is with a mutimeter and replace the entire element.When you turn one of the units on high you will see a dark line under the glass running 1/2 way across the elements. Those are the thermostats... Find the defective one and the rest is pretty simple to replace
