Light "Burner On" stays on all the time on my electric stove GE model JBS27WH2WW

I have a GE Range Model JBS27W H2WW and the serial# XXXXX that I was cooking on and the back burner starting throwing out sparks and blew a hole in the coil and the drip pan. Now the light Burner on is staying on and I switched the 8 inch burner in the front with this 8 inch burner and still cannot get it to work.

How do I plug back in the GE stove top burners after unplugging them?

The two leads from the burner fit into a socket in the stove top. It's a bit tricky to get it in just right. If the three metal "legs" on the burner fit snugly into the three slots on the stovetop you did it right.

Ignitor does not click

there is no "ignitor" as you would find in an oven or dryer. There is a sparkmodule that many times goes bad after 5 to 8 years. It is a plastic box about 4 to 6 " x 2" wide and wil have 3 to 5 wires or 3 to 5 terminal connector points on it. remember to unplug the range top fromwall electric. these units are not difficult to replace; they are not repairable, you have to buy a new one.

Heating element will not come on

The best to test that is to remove the top and take the outer coil and use it on any of the other burners to see if it heats up, then youll know for sure is the element or the switch.
