Element light stays on after all power control knobs are in off position?

Good Afternoon Cindy,

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.

-Best Regards-

Onece the range selector is turned on the light comes on but soon goes out, if you move the selector a little the light comes back on, this stove was made around 1952. Thank You, Dave

Are you talking about the oven temperature control? When turned on to the selected temperature the oven indicator will light and the element will work. When the oven reaches the desired temperature the power will shut off to the element and the indicator light will go out. When the oven cools slightly the indicator light and the element will again turn on. When it does turn off and you turn the knob slightly to increase the temperature the indicator light and element will come on again as you are asking it to heat to a higher temperature. This is normal oven operation.

Wife put the oven on clean cycle last night. This morning the heating element will not turn off, a one inch section glows orange. Turned oven off, put it back on clean, broil and off again, no change.

You probably just need a new bake element. Many ranges supply 120 volts to one side of the bake element at all times, switching the other side of the 240 voltage to it (and completing a circuit) when it needs to heat. If the element shorts to ground, the 120 volts can heat though a section of the element to the ground. OK, so much for the technical stuff. Turn power off to range. Replace bake element. Re-connect power. If it works, great. If it heat without turning oven "on" now, that would indicate that the electrical contacts in the bake relay on the control board have welded themselves together, necessitating replacing the control board. Let's hope you are not unlucky enough to have had that happen. (sometimes that happens as the result of an element failure)

My whirlpool bottom element does not work . the element is enclosed. do i get at it from the side or bottom.the model is xlp34900 electric stove

Make sure cook had it set to bake, not broil (broil on runs top element), renters often forget that . First turn off electricity to the stove, breaker or fuse. I always confirm its off by trying a burner, doesn't heat in 30 seconds confirmed off.
Element loops from the back wall, held up by a little standard.
Usually there is a small screw under where the element goes into the back wall on each side, there is a little metal plate there that the screw holds down, remove the screw and plate and pull out element a little bit and will see where wire has a slip on connector onto element, slip those off, carefully unsnap little support (like clips to it) or unscrew from oven bottom. Then go to appliance parts dealer. Not appliance repairman but every time I did this it was always nearly the same exact way.

Oven takes up to 15 minutes to light. glow plug does appear to be bright orange immediately after turning oven on. it is a propane unit.

Hi, glow plug (element) should glow red, maybe you got faulty thermocouple, located ot bottom of oven burner, unit where gas enter oven burner, they could either be gas pilot or electrical element as metering device, give a little tap, could be stuck, could also be your thermostat, check oven thermostat, many ways to check oven thermostat, give thermocouple a little tap located at beginning of oven burner, if it didn't work, call a mechnic to make futher checks. good luck.

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.

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.

We have a new maytag kitchen stove model merh865raw. We have had it about 2 weeks. Now the surface indicator light will not light up when in use.

If the indicator light you are referring to is the 'surface hot' light then either the element has failed or a connection to the element has fallen off.
If the indicator light you are referring to is the 'element on' light then either the corresponding control switch has failed or a connection to the switch has fallen off.
It may be possible the lamp has failed..although never have seen one fail yet.

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.
