I have a Jenn-Air downdraft cooktop JED8430ADB. The unit has 4 burner elements and each element has it own hot warning light that remains on until the cooktop cools off to the touch. I have one hot warning light that remains on constantly. It's been on for months, but now I'm having to replace the glass cooktop due to an dropped item that cracked the surface and I was wanting to repair the warning light at the same time. What part do I need to replace this light malfunction? It is the front right burner which is the dual burner.

The 'hot' safety light is usually a function of the limiter built into the underlying element (see the following link). The limiter has likely failed and would need to be replaced.

Unfortunately the limiter is not available any longer and the whole element with the affected limiter would need to be replaced. The replacement elements come with the limiter installed already.

It is a good time to replace it if you have to replace the glass anyway.
