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.

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.
