SOURCE: Hot surface indicator

The component that controls the hot surface light is part of the element. If there is a light for each element you just replace that element. If there's one for the whole surface or each side you'll have to figure out which element is causing the problem.

SOURCE: The hot surface indicator light remains ON all the time.

Your hot surface indicator light might have a short that causes it to stay on all of the time. If you can, try unplugging it for a little while and plugging it back up. If the light is still on, you have a short. You can still use the stove, but the light staying on will not be any help to you.

SOURCE: GE Spectra range

I just moved into a new apartment and my stove wasn't working properly. After reading the very helpful information posted by kd3ke, I decided to turn off the breaker to my stove, take off the back covering, and check out what was back there. I was experiencing the same problem as posted.... the burner light, oven light and clock were all working however, the burners did not get hot nor did the oven. After taking off the back panel, the cord did have just as he stated, a black, white, and red wire however the plug attatching to the stove did not have cordinating colors. It was just a grey cord with 3 copper wire heads. It seemed to me that the cord was twisted and therefore everything was backwards. Since I was relying on his post, that would explain why the stove still did have some power, just not all, because the voltagages were wrong. I flipped the three cord wires, reconnected them to the stove and then plugged it in and turned on the breaker... everything works now!!! :) I don't know if this will help anyone else since it may not be the same problem if your stove was working properly previously, but it fixed the problem for me since I had just moved in.

Hot surface indicator light stay on?


One of your surface elements is bad (the hot-element switch that is part of the element is stuck on). If each element has its own hot-light, then you know which element is bad; but if you have just 1 hot-surface indicator, your problem is figuring out which element is bad. That takes an electronic technician with patience and an ohmmeter.

Hot surface light indicator stays lit


The hot surface light is controlled by a part attached to the element called a limiter. For your model, the limiter is not available as a seperate item. The element/limiter assembly has to be replaced as a single unit. The top assembly, elements and limiters are all fragile parts.
If you are making this repair yourself, make sure the range is disconnected from it's power source prior to service.

Red light won't go out


If the indicator light you are referring to is the 'surface hot' light then the element has failed. Each element contains a sensor to detect when the element is hot, these sensors fail. The element will have to be replaced. If there is only one light to indicate hot surface, you will have to determine which element has failed.

If the indicator light you are referring to is the 'element on' light then the corresponding control switch has failed. Each control switch contains a switch that will illuminate a lamp to indicate a burner is on. This switch has probably stuck closed.

If it's the light that indicated the element is on, replace the switch. If it's the light that indicated the element is hot, replace the element.

Surface unit indicator light is always on


Coffy, if you are talking about the hot surface indicator lights, they are controlled by the limiter on the burner itself. When the burner heats up the limiter closes and sends power to the light (hot surface). When the burner cools the limiter is supposed to open cutting power to the hot surface indicator light. They may be stuck closed. If you are talking about the lights on the back panel, that is controlled by the infinate switch itself. Catriver
