You either have a reed or thermal limiter switch that is bad or a switch that is bad. The only way to determine it is with a meter. I think that this job is better left to a professional unless you know how to use a volt/ohm meter.

Temporary solution to turn off the indicator lamp - put a wet rag with an ice pack on top on the middle section of the cooktop.
The thermal sensor will trip off the lamp.

SOURCE: cooktop red light is staying on

The red light is on as a safety to let you know the surface is hot. When the light goes out the surface will be safe to touch with out getting a bad burn.

SOURCE: hot indicator surface light will not turn off

I had the same problem, but I found out it was only when one particular burner was turned on. I waited for the problem burner to cool, then took the fist of my hand and tapped on the burner itself and the light goes out every time. Works like a charm..probably a loose connection with that one burner.

WHY DOES THE INDIVIDUAL COOKING ZONES ONLY WORK WHEN THE LEFT FRONT COOKING ZONE (180mm PLATE) IS TURNED ON AND YET THE LFET FRONT COOKING ZONE (180 mm PLATE) WILL NOT WORTK WHEN TURNED ON BY ITSELF O


There are 3 answers possible for your question:
1) your heater has a Thermolimiter without Hot Warning Light indicator connector and the job is dne by the electronics tht manage the zone. In this case the timer indicates that the hob is cold but obviously it is not. The fault is at the Electronics.

2) The Heater is a double Zone (with an inner ring and/or an oval side) in this case the part that it is failing to switch on is activated only in the sequential Inner ring-Outer ring. If the temp of 550C is reached the Thermolimiter does the cut of power cycling +/- 50C in order to avoid exceeding the 550C nominal.

3) Wrong Wiring if the heater was replaced. The harness could have been swapped around. Heaters could be Ceramaspeed or EGO that have inverted power and thermolimiter faston. Eika heaters are different too. but for this you need to see what is inside the hob and it is dangerous if you are not a qualified electrician.

I have a Whirlpool Electric Range, Glass Top. The "cooktop on" light stays on even though all controls are off


Hello,

The problem is going to be one or more of the on light circuits on the burner control switchs is staying on all the time even when off. To check which one(s) it is gain access to the switches and check for contunuty on the wire terminals indicated in red circles. Their are 2 style switches,one the body is black and one the body is red and i have shown where to check on each style.
The first thing to do before accessing the switches it DISCONNECT POWER to unit oldtech2332_73.jpgoldtech2332_74.jpg

Frigidaire Oven surface light stays ''on'' even when cooktop off


I unplugged the stove, un plugged all the burners cleaned them, put them back on plugged the stove back in and the light went out, something to do with unplugging it I think. reset it or something.

Whirlpool Range RF385PXG tripped circuit and now red lights r out


A wild guess is that one of the oven or cooktop Calrod elements MAY have shorted. Sometimes there is evidence by color of the element at a pint or a hole blown out near where it shorted.
