Burner light stays on even if burner is off and stays cool

I recently replaced a bad burner, but the burner light still flickers and stays on even when the burner is turned off and is cool to the touch. Do I need to worry about this or is it just an issue with the light? It is an Amana electric oven with ceramic cooktop.

Heater is not igniting


see this causes and fix it. God bless you
f there is no heat, check the electrical service panel for a burned fuse or tripped breaker. Relight the pilot light (see below). If there is not enough heat, adjust the burner air shutter (see below); and clean the burner ports (see below).
If the pilot light does not light or does not stay lit, clean the pilot orifice carefully with a toothpick, test the thermocouple and replace it if it is faulty (see below).
If the flame flickers, adjust the pilot (see below).
If there is an exploding sound when the burner ignites, adjust the pilot to a higher setting and clean the pilot orifice and the burner ports.
If the burner takes more than a few seconds to ignite, clean the pilot orifice and adjust the pilot light.
If the burner flame is uneven, clean the burner ports. If the burner flame is very yellow, clean the burner; open vents in the furnace room to provide more air; adjust the burner air shutter.
If the furnace makes a rumbling noise when the burners are off, clean the burner and adjust the burner air shutter.
If the air is too dry, wash or replace the evaporator pad if you have a humidifier; test the humidistat; and adjust the water-level float to raise the water level.
If some rooms are too cool and others too warm, the distribution system may require balancing. Refer to the Forced-Air Distribution Fix-It Guide .

Pilot will stay lit but burner goes out about 1 minute after it lights


Hi,
The thermocouple is bad. You get the thermocouple very hot when lighting it, but then it cools down a bit even with the main flame on, and it shuts the burner down.
Replace the thermocouple and you will be good again.

LIGHT STAYS ON FOR HOURS BUT THE TOP HAS COOLED


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

Red light stays on indicating burner is on when burner is not on.


It should stay on after the burner has been turned off and remain on until the top has completely cooled down,if it stays on and never goes off, the thermostat for one or more burners is faulty and will need replaced.

If this is happening on more than one burner the command module may be bad, small cicuit board inside control panel. With power disconnected easy replacement. check wiring to each burner control 1st by removing control panel cover. Be careful to remove small screws on either side of panel between panel & burner.

Burner light does not go off on Amana AKT3040


Sounds like a short in that particular burner circuit. Usually when the light stays on even after cool down the heat sensor is bad. This is inside the burner. If your getting white smoke the burner switch could also be shorted out.
