Sounds like the solenoid on the starter is not getting any power, check the small wire connection on the starter to see if there is power in the start position, if not you have an ignition switch problem or an open circuit between the ignition switch and starter solenoid... if you do have power in the crank position then you have a bad starter.
This happens when one of the infinite switches short out. The indicator lamp will remain on even though none of the elements are heating up. To figure out which one is defective, gain access to the rear of the switches and remove the wire going to terminal P (Pilot) Restore power and see if the light is out now. Keep doing this to the remaining switches until you find the one where the light stays out with the wire removed after power is restored. Supply model number and we will supply the part number for the infinite switch. Be sure to let us know if it is the 6 or 8 inch burner switch. Good Luck and be careful. Eric
one of the stove top burner control switch has gone bad causing the light to be on when off,it could be anyone of the 4 since the light will come on no matter which one is turned on.
To test and see which one it is..remove back panel so ya can get to switches TURN OFF THE BREAKER OR DISCONNECT THE POWER TO RANGE using a multmeter need to check all 4 switches to see which one it is
on the switches will be wire terminals on the switch maked as L1 and one marked P the switch that is the problem will have contunity on that L1/P curciut when the switch is set to off causing the light to stay on all the time.
You have probably missed re-connecting part of the electrical wiring- probably missed a ground connection..
Check you have re-connected:-
the main power supply via the fusible link (or in line maxifuse),
the battery negative terminal is correctly grounded to chassis/frame,
the motor ground connection to the chassis or battery negative.
