Question about Cooktops

1 Answer

Indesit PI 640

When *I connect the spade connectors of the warning light to the terminals of the bank of switches, the light remains illuminated until i isolate the power supply to the appliance. The users guide says that the warning light will illuminate when one of the hobs is switched on, which suggests to me that it is energised by one of the switch terminals. I stand to be corrected on this. I am unable to extinguish the light by turning off all the plate switches. This is what is confusing me. I have tried leaving the light on for a few hours and have returned to find the light still on.
The hob is brand new so I feel that it is a wiring fault of mine.

Zanussi induction hob. Hot warning light remains on permanently for one ring. Tried power on/ off- no good.


Unfortunately this is not a user fixable issue,it is caused by a faulty temperature sensor,which needs replacement.

Element on light on ... Nothing is on


This happens when one of the infinite switches short out. The indicator lamp will remain on even though none of the elements are heating up. To figure out which one is defective, gain access to the rear of the switches and remove the wire going to terminal P (Pilot) Restore power and see if the light is out now. Keep doing this to the remaining switches until you find the one where the light stays out with the wire removed after power is restored. Supply model number and we will supply the part number for the infinite switch. Be sure to let us know if it is the 6 or 8 inch burner switch. Good Luck and be careful. Eric

I just moved to a fully furnished apartment. How do I turn off the schott ceran cooktop. Both knobs are already pointing to zero but one of the lights is still on.


This cook top light may stay on until the heating element has cooled down,
This is a warning that the top is still hot to warn you so you do not get burnt.

I am trying to repace the bake element in my jennaire electrical stove. There is a wire coming into the side of the connector. Does that wire simply pull out. I cannot understand how it connects. Thanks


If you are talking about the terminals of the oven element, the wire coming in is connected to the spade connector. The spade connector slides off the oven spade terminal.

Hot Surface Indicator Light has not turned off since last night.


if the hs ind light does not turn off then that particular heating elemnt needs to be replaced.heat sensor is built in the elemnt.when elemnt is turned off and it cools down it makes a switch to open and inturn ind light turns off.but sometimes thst gets stuck and light remains on.but do not worry abt element,it remains off,its just that indicator light that remains on.

Red light on cook top remains on always.


Don't really need a wiring diagram, although there may be one inside switch area. (make sure to put it back again if it is there) Will need the full model number to get you the part number you need. (model number usually on a sticker near where the electrical wire enters the cook top)
Turn off power to cook top. Open cover to switches. Pull two "pilot" (usually smaller spade terminals) off the switch for the right front burner, and insulate each with a bit of electrical tape. Turn power back on to see if light now off. If yes, replace that switch. If no, replace those wires and repeat procedure with the next switch until you find the bad switch. Send a comment if you need additional help.

Stove top dual infinite switch


If the new switch is a substitute, should have come with instructions.
If no instructions, I would suggest matching the markings on the switch next to each terminal.eg, match terminal marking on old switch as L1 to marking on new switch as L1. The markings are industry standard and should match from old switch to new switch.

If you need further assistance, let me know
