Hot surface light on
More than 10 years
i just purchased a house that came with a Kenmore Warm and Ready Zone/self cleaning oven. I was told that the oven was purcahsed circa 2001. The hot surface light is on though the oven is off and cool to the touch.
I saw on this forum it has to do with the element. How do I know which element needs replacing? There are 4 burners and a warm and ready zone.
Thanks for your help!!!!

The hot surface switch on each element can be ohmed for continuity ( shouldn't have any when cool ) or simply and carfully pull off the wire one at a time until the light goes out.
