Hot surface light

The hot surface light will not turn off. The unit has not been used for several hours, but the 'hot surface light' will not turn off. We unplugged the stove and plugged it back in, and that did not work. Any suggestions ?

Across each plate there is a cutout - you can usually see it thro the ceramic and is a rod going across the plate. it also senses that the plate is hot and turns the hobhot light on. this is the part that is faulty. sometimes only available as a complete plate

Why is jl audio 1000/1v2 in thermal but not hot?


They might be using the light to show other problems as well. Or the unit you bought has the same issue??

Double check all your connections, leave it unplugged for 24 hours after hitting the power button several times to drain the capacitors to hopefully clear any codes in the modual.

My left front burner was turned off for almost half hour but remained hot. the hot surface light was still lit. I had to throw my main breaker to turn it off. What could be my problem


Sounds like the thermostat on that burner gas gone. When you switched the breaker back on, did the burner get warm after being cold? If so, you need a new controller. They are easy to change if you can get to the back of the unit. Make sure you turn off the breaker and physically remove the plug.

Why the hot surface indicator light always on when I turn off heat.


the hot surface indicator should go off when th temp of the unit has coled off enough to be touched.if it does not turn off then there is a more than likely a shorted wire.

Just installed an electric cooktop and the Hot Surface indicator light has been on since installation. How do we fix this?


Sounds like a thermal switch which controls the hot surface light is stuck closed.

If this is a new unit, I'd return it. If not, I would check the switche(s) for the hot surface light -- when the unit is cold, unplug one wire going to the thermal switch and check it for electrical continuity. If you get current from a multi-meter through the switch, replace it -- it's not opening when it cools down.

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.

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.

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
