Q:

Stove is OFF but surface unit indicator light stays ON

A:

I can understand the concern that the indicator light stays on when the controls are off. The expert will review your model and respond within 24-48 hours if not sooner. In the meantime, if you would like to check an expert answer for a similar question, I attached the link below. Hope this information is helpful.

What you�re describing is a faulty surface unit switch. The surface unit switch has several electrical contacts that open & close as you turn the switch on & off. The contacts that make & break for the surface unit on light are stuck together inside the switch. I recommend replacing the faulty surface unit switch.

The trick is that there are 4 switches and most likely only one is bad.

On the switch, be sure the stove is unplugged or power is turned off, there will be a wire on the "P" terminal. You can try unplugging the yellow wire from the "P" terminal and see if the light goes out.

Use caution doing this.

Fred, you were right! I was able to find the faulty switch but instead of replacing it I went ahead and opened the switch and fixed the contacts. The switch is working great so far and I'll save some $$ for as long as it keeps working. Thanks

Q:

indicator light stays on

A:

More details: I'm referring to the "surface unit" light staying on even when all surface controls are off. I would like a copy of the wiring diagram for this model. THANKS.

I provided the wiring schematic in the first image below. The second image shows the wiring diagram. I provided a parts diagram and procedure for accessing the infinite burner switches in the console in that third image. You almost certainly have a burner switch that has a stuck contact that is causing this problem. The normal repair procedure is to unplug the range and access the burner switches in the console. Pull the wire off of the P connector of one switch and dress it out of the way where it won't short to the metal cabinet or any other wires (cover the bare end with electrical tape if necessary). Plug the range in and see if the indicator light stays on. If it does, go to the next switch and repeat that process (with the range unplugged while you disconnect the P wire). Continue this process until you find the bad switch.

You can order a new switch from the Sears PartsDirect website.

If you need more help, reply with additional details and we will assist you further.

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 .

Lyle, thanks so much for the information and diagrams. The problem was exactly what you said, a stuck contact inside the burner switch. Since the switch itself was good, I went ahead and opened the switch, separated the contact, cleaned it and put a little grease on the contact area. Put it back together and is working good again. I figure I'll save a few $$ for as long as it works. Thanks again for you help.
