One of your surface switches has shorted out and needs replacing.
It is not a dangerous situation,just a nuisance to have the light on all the time.

The burner indicator light on my GE profile glass cook top stays on when the stove is turned off. Any thoughts?

mine does the same thing, in my case it is just indicating the burner is still hot after being turned off.. it goes off after awhile, which is normal.

How to change the cooktop on a GE Profile Electric Kitchen Range

After 6 years of luck a candlestick fell on our glass cook top and shattered it. We ordered the replacement part in sale from Sears (about $300) and set out to change it. Most web entries I found indicated that screws to release the top were in the oven, this was not the case. It took my wife and I two hours to replace the cook top, most of the time was figuring how because we could find no manual or instructions. This is why I want to share what we learned. I probably could do that now in 30 minutes, provided I have someone to help me with holding the cook top while detaching and then re-attaching the burners. Turns out the cook top is held in place by five screws that can be found under the control panel of the profile range. To remove the control panel you first remove the knobs, then the big plastic nuts that are under the knobs and then pull it out gently. You need to disconnect a long ribbon cable and before you do that it is a good reminder to switch the breaker for the range (typically a dual switch) off. Do not continue without switching the power off, you will be pulling many cables and there are many open connections under the cook top. Having removed the control panel, four more screws remove a second panel and allow access to a front row of five screws that hold directly the cook top. Essentially all the screws are hex screws and having a nice drill with controllable speed and clutch to control torque makes the job much easier. Remove all of them. I recommend documenting where every screw goes on a pad and keeping the screws separately in cups. Taking pictures is also helpful. Once the front screws are removed you still have two more screws that can be found in the side panels of the cook top about 2 inches from the back of the appliance. You will have to slide the appliance 6-8 inches forward and tilt it so that you can access those screws (one on each side). You are ready to hinge the entire cook top open. Keep the front down and lift from the back. You will find tons of cables that you should not disturb too much. Keep all cables connected; and I recommend you take a picture of how it looks. The goal is to detach the burners without disconnecting them from their cables. You need to remove a pair of metal clips that holds each burner in place using a Phillips screw driver. Notice that there is a specified position for each burner and for each clip. If you change the angle for any burner the cables will not reach. Gently remove the four little lights that indicate the cook top is hot, it hinges from one side and then disconnects. Once all burners are detached the entire glass cook top pulls out. Now the trick is to reverse the process as accurately as possible. I recommend using a soft towel where you rest the new cook top while you are attaching the burners to prevent a scratch or even worse a break. Lining up the clips that hold the burners is a bit tricky. I found that the screw driver helped me coax them to twist until I could align the holes properly. Check that each burner matches each socket and is attached flush. When it is time to lower the cook top back in place make sure that all cables are out of the way and that it fits flush against the range. Screw the side panels and then replace the screws in the front. Return the second panel and finally reconnect the ribbon cable. Before you push on the connector make sure that all pins align perfectly, a little patience can save you weeks for a replacement part. Return the control panel and attach knobs. Clean the glass before you heat it up. Return the power and enjoy your new glass cook top!
If for some reason something doesn't look right, review every step, your pictures and notes.

What are you using to clean the stove? Only cleaners made for ceran type tops should be used according to directions. Do not use enamel coated pans or glass pans on your cooktop.If you have a boil over, turn off the burner and change to a different burner immediately. Clean up the spill completely before cooking on that burner again. Use a flat edge razor to clean tough residue. Your cooktop will look new for years to come, even with heavy use.

As far as the scratch, don't use abrasive cleaners on the top and only use pots and pans with flat bottoms. If you do use cast iron pans, never scoot them around on the top.

Kenmore glass top range left front large burner out

check the burner socket, it is likely that contact is being lost where the burner connects to the hardwired portion of the system (the socket). It is not unusual for the socket to "burn up" when there is a poor connection to the burner resulting in the burner being replaced and the new burner not working or working intermittently.

First of all, if the cook-top broke as a result of a manufacturer defect, the repairs should be covered under the manufacturer's warranty. In this case, the repairs would be done at no cost to you. If, however, the glass top was broken as a result of the consumer, the repair will not be covered (even if it is still under warranty). If this is the case, it does not require an engineer to replace a glass cook-top. It can be time consuming, though. If you are somewhat savvy with fixing things, it can be accomplished by the average do-it-yourselfer. The following link explains how to replace most glass cooktops:

The tedious part of replacing the cook-top is carefully removing and handling each burner element. These are usually ceramic and are very fragile. You must be handled with care. If there is no common disconnect, you also will be required to unplug each burner assembly one at a time and label the wires. A digital camera can come in very handy for this as well. The easiest way to do this is to remove the old shattered cook-top, first and lay it side by side with the new one. Remove and install one burner element at a time.

If you wish to pursue this and require additional assistance, please let me know before you rate the solution. I hope this helps you.

Burner on range will not turn off

Look at the back of your range there should be schemetic for your power control board. look for defective burner wire going into relay. There should be 5 relays in rows. Realy is the problem. I had the same problem with my front left burner stuck on high.
After replacing everything works okay.
