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.

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.

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.
