SOURCE: Hot Cooktop indicator

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.

Cook top indicator lights stay on long after it has cooled off. The largest cook circle sometimes doesn't reduce heat when the dial is changed


Cook top indicator light will stay on as long as the stove is hot I think. Also, the burners don't heat real steady? or evenly or true to their settings even, quite often. they also take a really long time to cool down as well as to adjust temperatures, so it may just be that it is taking an awfully long time for it to cool down in order to adjust.

HOW TO UNLOCK JEN-AIR STOVE TOP MODEL# JED4536WR01


The All Off cooktop touch control turns off the downdraft exhaust

system and all surface cooking areas that are in use at the same

time.



The Lock cooktop control avoids unintended use of the surface

cooking areas. When the cooktop is locked out, the surface

cooking areas cannot be turned on by the cooktop touch

controls.



To Lock Cooktop: Touch and hold the ALL OFF/LOCK keypad

for 4 seconds. After 4 seconds, ALL OFF/LOCK will glow red,

indicating that the cooktop controls are in the lockout position.

To Unlock Cooktop: Touch and hold the ALL OFF/LOCK keypad
for 4 seconds.

Red light on cook top remains on always.


Don't really need a wiring diagram, although there may be one inside switch area. (make sure to put it back again if it is there) Will need the full model number to get you the part number you need. (model number usually on a sticker near where the electrical wire enters the cook top)
Turn off power to cook top. Open cover to switches. Pull two "pilot" (usually smaller spade terminals) off the switch for the right front burner, and insulate each with a bit of electrical tape. Turn power back on to see if light now off. If yes, replace that switch. If no, replace those wires and repeat procedure with the next switch until you find the bad switch. Send a comment if you need additional help.
