The element will not heat up. The surface is cold however the surface hot light is on. What can I do? Is this a danger, should I unplug the range.
ANSWER RJ Daniel,
The hot surface indicator staying on would not be a danger if the element is not coming on. Most likely with the issue that you are having the problem would be in the switch. Check with the switch in the off position for power from P to ground on the switch. If there is power then the switch is faulty and would need to be replaced. If there is no power then the element is bad and would need to be replaced.
