Disassembly to replace LED burner indicator

I've got a ESG366 and one of the purple LED burner indicators is completely missing. It must have fallen out (or into) the appliance. I can order the replacement LED, but I have no idea how to disassemble the cooktop. Either removing the porcelin top, or from underneath the cooktop. I'm quite handy with appliance repair. I was just looking for input from gurus on where to start before I jump in. Thanks much!

Re: Disassembly to replace LED burner indicator

I'm not an expert, but I just had mine apart. You should take the panel off from beneath the control panel. This is a matter of removing about 6-8 screws and slipping the small piece of sheet metal out. You may then be able to find your "missing" LED, which is probably dangling inside the control panel assembly area. I believe there is simply a tab or other simply fastening clip that you slip the LED back onto; this holds the LED against the control panel. Assuming the LED is still working and still wired to the knob, it should work fine.

The red padlock icon that usually unlocks with the 5 second touch of a finger won't unlock the cooktop.

Have you tried disconnecting the whole cooktop from the main supply for about 5 minutes? Sometimes when reconnected the fault goes away.

I need to replace two blue indicator lights and I need directions

I have replaced several of the indicator lights in the control knobs.

Turns out that Dacor doesn't sell exact replacement lights (actually LED modules).

What I did was to go to a local electronics supply store and purchase Blue replacement LEDs and a current limiting resistor to connect in series. Replacement LEDs can vary in brightness depending on your taste ... I chose a super bright LED which makes the control knobs noticeably brighter. The value of resistor will vary depending on the LED you choose (brighter LEDs need slightly more current and as such the resistor value will be slightly less).

Once you've opened the range from the top (remove knobs, grates and burners) then remove a few screws and the entire unit opens with a hinge in the back.
Look over the LED light modules which shine just below each knob and fashion a replacement LED assembly.

Total material cost per LED unit was ~ $2-3 (LED, resistor, wire and heat-shrink tubing)

Maytag MEC5430 cooktop burner indicator lights not working

If indicator lights are all that wont work there is a "P" terminal on the surface switches (unless they are controled through a board). The P is for Pilot And 1 side usually the "P" terminal of the switch is allowing the light to recieve the power signal that the element is recieving from the switch. The other side of the pilot light(s) will all be wired together at a "common" pont.
My guess is that if you have individual piolet lights this common point is not tied in to the circut now. 1 wire off or loose and none of the lights work. However it should be simple to trace back to this point and effect repair to it.

Replacement dual burner Gaggenau CK594

You have 2 line, 2 load, and if there is an indicator light, 1 for that and 1 ground. The other guy may be right about the 2 grounds, if not, the indicator light may have a connection for hooking it to another light in series. The tech cannot understand the schematic? get someone who can.
