Cooktop on light is on
If the hotplate 'hot' light is on when the cooktop is completely cooled down then you will need an experienced repair person to fix it. It can be a bit complicated.

Whirpool cook top surface light
How long does it take for the light to finally go off?or does the light ever go off when a cooktop decrease in tempreture has to reach the tempreture set by the factory for that light to go off. 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.If you have any further questions please message me back and please remember to rank how this opinion has helped in your appliance situation Thanks again

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

Whirlpool Flat cooktop burner not heating up
Try cleaning the knobs. I did the same thing you did (turning the circuit breaker off but that did not solve the problem.
My wife just tried turning the knobs and that seemed to work. It appears that one of the knobs may have been so sticky that the though it's in the OFF position it thinks it's still ON.
