Light on the stove

Postby Bork » Sun Oct 18, 15:39 2009

This might be better off in advice, but the light that says that one of the burners on the stove is staying on all the time, even when everything is off and totally cool. This happened a few months ago, and then it randomly went off after a few days. Is this something to worry about? Does it mean that something is wrong with the stove, or is it okay to not be concerned? I think it's been on for about a week now. Should I just wait for it to go off on its own, or should I think about calling someone about it?

Dude, I have no idea if it's bad or not, but our stove is doing the same thing! It's got this red light that's supposed to be on when the burner's on but for the last few weeks it's stayed on constantly.

Coincidence? I think not!

It's not a coincidence. I had sex with both of you (unbeknownst to the other, of course) on your respective stoves -- it simply took that long for your stoves to stop registering 'hotness' on its surface. ;)

I think as long as for sure the burners are all actually off, and they are all in proper working order, you probably don't need to worry about it. Just make extra sure you always turn the stove off, 'cause now you won't have that little light to remind you when you've left it on (maybe you're better about this than I am, but I know I accidentally leave the stove on on a fairly regular basis).

I work with electronics, such as household appliances and radios. Most likely what you have there is simple wiring issues. When you turn the stove off, it breaks the circuit to the light bulb as well. The circuit to the bulb doesn't get broken, so there you are. Don't worry too much about it if the stove is off. If not, then worry.
If it were gas, get someone out there ASAP, obviously.

Oh good! It went off, but that's pretty reassuring. I was really concerned that it was kind of like the engine light on the car and indicated that my oven was going to break soon.
