Default Cooktop On Indicator light won't go off
Model Number: RF265LXTQ-3   Brand: Whirlpool   Age: 1 - 5 years   

Appliance Parts from AppliancePartPros.com


Hello,
I have a Whirlpool Electric Range (above model #), purchased in 2009. Last night the cooktop indicator on light will not go off. I turned all the burners on and they got hot, and turned them off and they cooled and the hot surface indicator light went out. But the Cooktop On light stayed on. I unplugged the unit for over 5 minutes and the when plugged in, the cooktop on light came back on instantly.
I am not sure and could use some assistance on this, but each switch has it's own connection to the control unit. How do I identify which switch is bad?
If this diagnoses is wrong, I would really appreciate some assistance.
Thanks for any help!
Regards
bwalker

Here are your parts

Easiest way to find it is to unplug the unit and then the Violet wire going to a switch. Tape it so it cannot short to anything. Then plug the unit in and see if the light stays off.
If not move on to the next switch and try the same procedure.
Be sure to unplug the unit when working on it!!!

You could also use a meter on the most sensitive ohms scale and measure S1 to P and in one case S1 to S2 on the switches to see which one is closed (0 ohms) when it should be open at room temperature.
