on indicator does not go off ,switched with surface indicator and on indicator still comes on how do I trouble shoot? I have continuity between 1a and 1b on one burner
Answer David, The "burner on" indicator light is controlled through the infinite (burner) switches. You'll need to chech each switch for a "closed" circuit from L1 to P terminals on all the switches, with the switch in the "off" position, and one wire disconnected from the switch. Whichever switch has the "closed" circuit, is the switch causing the light to stay on. At the burner, terminals 1A to 2A is the element circuit, and should be "closed} at all times. 1B to 2B is the "hot surface" light, and is "closed" when the burner or cooktop is hot.There should not be a circuit between 1B and 1A unless the test was conducted wrong, or an issue in the burner /sensor
How do I know which terminal to check once I get in there? Is the part the same for both indicator lights? Thanks
Answer Hello John. You will want to test all of the elements in the cooktop to see which one is causing the indicator light 74004153 to stay on. Hope this helps.
This is in regards to my previous question. I said the light that stays on was the "hot surface indicator," whhen actually it is the "on indicator." My error. Is the problem and resolution the same as well as part number?
The " on indicator" stays on when all else is off and stove cool. Thank you
Answer Hello John. Yes, A "hot surface or the on indicator" light remaining on is usually due to a stuck switch on the element sensor (Terminal 1B to 2B on the sensor should be an "open" circuit, when cool) if it's a closed circuit when cool, the switch is stuck and causing the light to remain on. You will need to raise and remove the glass cooktop, to access the burners and wiring and will need a multi meter TJMA-DMT3 to test the circuit on the sensor. To raise the cooktop, you'll need to remove power to the range, open the oven door and remove the two(2) 1/4 in. hex head screws(one on each end) of the flange, on each corner edge, of the oven opening, and raise the cooktop glass. remove the wires from the two terminals and check for the "open" circuit across the 1B and 2B termianls. Thanks and Good Luck
