Question about Whirlpool RCC3024 Electric Cooktop
The hot surface light was on and the burner was off. The burner was still hot after more than half hour. I had to throw both breakers of the stove to get it to cool down. It has never done this before. What could be the problem...do I need to call service or can I take care of it myself?
Sounds like the thermostat on that burner gas gone. When you switched the breaker back on, did the burner get warm after being cold? If so, you need a new controller. They are easy to change if you can get to the back of the unit. Make sure you turn off the breaker and physically remove the plug.

SOURCE: Hot Surface Light stays on
Our success has been to heat the elements to hot for about 5 minutes. Then let cool to reset temp sensor.
Can cause the problem by turning a burner on for a short period of time

Try cleaning the knobs. I did the same thing you did (turning the circuit breaker off but that did not solve the problem.
My wife just tried turning the knobs and that seemed to work. It appears that one of the knobs may have been so sticky that the though it's in the OFF position it thinks it's still ON.

if its going out, its probably ok
its not a light indicating the burner is on, rather that the glass is abcove 100 degrees and still not safe to put something on
2 hours is a bit long but it depends on how fst the surface can cool of
you can test this by trying to cool it off faster with a fan ans see what happens
