Yes , hopefully you have a seperate indicator light for each of the elemnts, makes it easier to see which has gone bad, but if yo know which burner you were usins at time of incident then you can assume that it was that elemnet. replacement of the elemnt is required, for a it has a short in the theremistor, not a hazard, more of an inconvience, so i would have it taken careof but no need to rush its not an emergency, its only an faulty indicator, the elmnt is not actually heating

What's causing my oven to stay hot HOURS after I've turned it off?


If you have the older type stove with the oven knob that has the temperature setting around the outside of the knob, then that part could be bad. It is called a thermostat. That part usually comes with sensor attached. The sensor is the long skinny looking tube that goes through a hole and into the oven.
If you have the newer type electronic stove where you program in the temperature you want, the electronic circuit board could be bad. But the electronic stoves have a over temperature protection built into the circuit board, so that would have engaged, shutting down the stove.
Either way, it is a potential fire hazard and needs to be addressed.

Tony, this sounds like you may need to have a new burner switch installed, it is called an infinite switch. If it is for the dual burner, make sure you tell the appliance parts store this so they can order you a dual infinite switch.

Hotpoint Glasstop Stove - Burner turns on by itself


I have a GE stove which I purchased in 2004, and it is doing the same. I heard beeping coming from the kitchen in the middle of the night . I went to the kitchen and the oven was on by itself. I have been unplugging it when not using it. Maybe this could be a recall.

My question concerns a Kenmore glasstop electric oven (model #790.95200100). While operating the oven at 450 degrees and the back right burner at level 5, I heard an audible "pop" and saw a flash of light...


After letting the stove cool, I pulled the entire unit out from the wall and discovered scorch marks on the wall. Opening the back panel revealed a simple fix: the "element on" light module had shorted and was visibly scorched and melted. Looks like a simple replacement (and some wire stripping where the leads fused). Stove currently works with the affected wires capped off (while I await a replacement module).

Broiler won't turn off. Error code F-3


The broiler won't turn off even when you press the "Off/cancel" button? It sounds like the broiler control relay is stuck shut. The F3 code means the oven temperature sensor has failed, this probably happened because the oven got too hot when the broiler was stuck on. There is fail-safe thermal fuse that will blow if the oven gets too hot, so the oven won't melt down but you should leave the unit off so you don't blow the fuse.

To fix the relay, you will have to replace the oven control module. I think this is about $200 and not too hard to replace if you are somewhat handy. The temperature sensor is also serviceable, you can find parts at Appliance Parts Pros on the web. Hopefully you haven't thrown the range out yet, let me know if you need further assistance.

Turning off oven.


The fan only comes on in the back of the oven when convecting and Automaticaly turns off when you open the door. The exhaust fan coming from the front stays on for qutie a while, maybe 2 hours or so till the oven cools. I think it is just a function of the oven. A good thing in the winter but uses a bunch of airconditioning in the summer
