1. There is only one "Power on" indicator light for all burners. How did you know that "The burner that is involved is the dual-coil burner"?

2. According to the "Owners Manual": The surface unit will glow red when the element is turned on. You will see the element cycling on and off – even on the HI setting – to help the area stay at the temperature setting you chose and prevent damage to the glass.
