    Yup, hot surface indicator light will not turn off. It's not the end of the world if it burns out, but I'm wondering if more problems might arise because of it?

  • Anonymous Mar 29, 2009

    I have a single light unit. I have removed all elements and the light still is on. Should it go out when the defective element is removed?

    My Hot surface indicator lights will not go off either. The burner still works, so I will just not worry I guess.

The element contains a sensor to detect when the element is hot, these sensors fail. The element will have to be replaced. If there is only one light to indicate hot surface, you will have to determine which element has failed.

SOURCE: The hot surface indicator light remains ON all the time.

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.

SOURCE: GE EVOLUTION Glass top. The hot surface(Glass top)

Individual burners, located directly under the cooktop glass, contain a temp sensor which lights up the hot surface lamp when they sense a hot condition. If the light stays on after all burners are cool, one of the sensors has shorted out. The sensors are an integral part of the burner, so the offending burner must be replaced to solve your constant on hot light.

Hot surface indicator light stay on?


One of your surface elements is bad (the hot-element switch that is part of the element is stuck on). If each element has its own hot-light, then you know which element is bad; but if you have just 1 hot-surface indicator, your problem is figuring out which element is bad. That takes an electronic technician with patience and an ohmmeter.

Indicator light stays on when eye(s) are turned off


The stove indicator light normal stay on until the burner cools off, and then the indicator light goes off, this is to prevent someone from touching the burner, alerting them that the stove is still hot.

I have a new ge range. When I turn on the left


mvek,
If you could see through the glass, you'd see "temperature sensors" located near the elements. They're very sensitive little guys, and rightly so! Their job is to detect temps and energize the warning light on the cooktop so users won't get burned.

To answer your question... It appears that there is an issue with the front left sensor (and possibly the right as well). The temp warning lamps should NEVER go off immediately. Please call for warranty repair (1-800-GE-CARES). This is an unsafe condition for you and your Family. The warning indicators are there for a reason and should indicate high temp's as long as high temp's are present.

Red light won't go out


If the indicator light you are referring to is the 'surface hot' light then the element has failed. Each element contains a sensor to detect when the element is hot, these sensors fail. The element will have to be replaced. If there is only one light to indicate hot surface, you will have to determine which element has failed.

If the indicator light you are referring to is the 'element on' light then the corresponding control switch has failed. Each control switch contains a switch that will illuminate a lamp to indicate a burner is on. This switch has probably stuck closed.

Surface unit indicator light is always on


Coffy, if you are talking about the hot surface indicator lights, they are controlled by the limiter on the burner itself. When the burner heats up the limiter closes and sends power to the light (hot surface). When the burner cools the limiter is supposed to open cutting power to the hot surface indicator light. They may be stuck closed. If you are talking about the lights on the back panel, that is controlled by the infinate switch itself. Catriver
