Question about Whirlpool RF380LXPS Electric Kitchen Range
Your hot surface indicator light might have a short that causes it to stay on all of the time. If you can, try unplugging it for a little while and plugging it back up. If the light is still on, you have a short. You can still use the stove, but the light staying on will not be any help to you.

SOURCE: Hot surface indicator
The component that controls the hot surface light is part of the element. If there is a light for each element you just replace that element. If there's one for the whole surface or each side you'll have to figure out which element is causing the problem.

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.

Hi, You will need to change the burner switch as well. It shorted out when the element went bad.
Please let me know if I can assist you with part # or anything else.
