I can definitely understand your concern over the Hot Surface light staying lit on your stove. I did some research and provided a link to a similar question and answer on our site. I hope this will shed a little more light on the issue until the Expert responds to your question in more detail within 24 to 48 hours.

Thank you for submitting your question. I understand your concern and I will be happy to assist you. Julio has provided you with great information for resolving the issue with your range through the link provided above. You will need an ohms/volt meter to test and see which switch has failed.

First, unplug the range and access the burner switches (image one). With the range unplugged, remove the purple wires off of one of the switches (image two). The purple wire will be connected to the P terminal on all switches except the right front burner -- it is connected to terminal 4 on that switch. Tape the spade connector on the end of that wire with electrical tape so that it won't short out against the metal cabinet. Briefly plug the range back in to see if the "element on light" remains lit with that wire disconnected. If it does, then you can unplug the range and repeat that process until you find the switch that is causing your problem. Once you find the switch that causes the "element on light" to go out when that purple wire is disconnected, you can order a replacement switch from our Sears Parts Direct web site. Be sure that you unplug the range before accessing internal components and replacing switches. I hope this helps. Please reply back to this thread if you require further assistance. Thank you for using Manage My Life.

Your symptoms indicate that you probably have a failed burner switch in the console that is causing this problem. Since you want to try and fix this problem yourself, I recommend that you unplug the range and remove the upper back panel behind the console. You can pull the purple wire off of the "P" or "4" spade off of each burner switch (one at a time) and then carefully power the range back up to see if the "element on" light stays on. I provided a wiring diagram in the image below with that "element on" light circuit traced in purple. Once you find the switch that is causing this problem, you can replace the bad switch (with the range unplugged ).

You can order the burner switch from the Sears PartsDirect website.

This information should help you fix this failure yourself. If you need more assistance, reply with additional details.

If you do not feel confident repairing this problem yourself, then you can have it repaired at your home by a Sears technician. Here is a link for the website: Sears Home Services .
