Cook top indicator lights stay on long after it has cooled off. The largest cook circle sometimes doesn't reduce heat when the dial is changed


Cook top indicator light will stay on as long as the stove is hot I think. Also, the burners don't heat real steady? or evenly or true to their settings even, quite often. they also take a really long time to cool down as well as to adjust temperatures, so it may just be that it is taking an awfully long time for it to cool down in order to adjust.

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

Stovetop stays hot when burners are not on


Is it a glass top. If it is, glass will absorb the heat. It will cool off after some time. That is normal.

Cooktop light stays on when cool


the "hot top" indicator lamp is switched by a contact on the plate cut-out. sometimes this cut-out is available as a separate part but often must fit complete plate. by plate i mean the bit that gets hot!
