When the indicator light does not shut off when the burners are turned to the off position, this indicates one of the infinites switches are shorted. If comfortable with electricity, unplug the unit and remove the rear cover exposing the infinite (burner) switches. Using a bright flashlight, shine directly on one of the switches and you will see the following markings. L1 - L2 - H1 - H2, and then the Letter P. This letter P is for the pilot light. Since there is no way of determining which switch is shorted, remove the wire from the letter P on one switch. Isolate the wire removed so it is not touching anything. Place a piece of black electrical tape around the end to be safe. Next, plug it back in. If the light is still lit, move on to the next one until you have found the switch that once the wire is removed, the light does not light anymore. Replace that infinite/burner switcha nd all is well. If I can help further, I am here.

Waiting to hear from you,
Eric Campion

Can I replace a kenmore stove burner with a GE burner


It depends on the Kenmore Model. Kenmore is the brand name for models sold by Sears, but they are not all manufacturered by the same company. They are made by Frigidaire, GE, Whirlpool, Amana, Samsung, LG... just to name a few. If you can post a model number of your Kenmore, I can give you the options for which elements will work for your machine.

Hot surface light indicator stays lit


The hot surface light is controlled by a part attached to the element called a limiter. For your model, the limiter is not available as a seperate item. The element/limiter assembly has to be replaced as a single unit. The top assembly, elements and limiters are all fragile parts.
If you are making this repair yourself, make sure the range is disconnected from it's power source prior to service.
