Question about Cooktops
All burners turn will turn off and stop heating, but the "on light" will not go off.
I am asuming you mean a standard cook top stove.
you should probebly unplug the range because it looks like a short circuit.
!) a shorted or failing burner/control will light to ground
2) every burrner has a fuse, unscreww each burnner fuse till light goes out. that is the problem piece.
3) change heating elements with the element of the same size on the other side of the stove.
4)put fuse back in. if light off - bad elemet - if light on - bad control
bad control - I'm not sure you want to tackle that. but call me back :)

Check the power plug is their any separate plug on it / if none check the control panel some switch to power 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

Testimonial: "THANK YOU FOR GETTING BACK WITH ME QUICKLY YOU GAVE ME SOMETHING TO CHECK FOR AND I WILL LET YOU KNOW HOW IT WORKS"
The igniter module is working fine. One of the switches (which are on each valve shaft) is stuck or shorted out. Pull a wire off each one at a time to determine which one is bad. Careful! 120 volts to each wire. Also, this can happen after you spill water into the valve area, if that sounds right, let it dry out.

This is usually one of the switches has failed. You will need to uninstall and disassemble to acess the switches. They are easy to check and replace.
