I went ahead & ordered the part, but I'm wondering if maybe I ought to do some troubleshooting prior to installing the new indicator light, so I don't explode it too!

I'm pretty handy with a mulitmeter & Dad's an electrician.

Thanks in-advance for your insight.

Did someone have a boil over,spillover, or get the cooktop wet, somehow ?

Based on the wiring diagram, I think that is a 240 VAC indicator light.
(no switch circuitry, in diagram).

Do all the burners work ?

You may want to visually check the burner receptacles for damage and the switches and wiring as well, before you install the new light.

Thanks for allowing to assist you,
