Hello, and thank you for using this service. I'll be helping you with your problem today.

This means that one of your burner switches has a stuck contact. You'll need to remove all the wires from one burner and see if the light turns off. If not then put all the wires back on and try the next one. Once you determine which one needs to be disconnected to stop the light from turning on---that is the switch you need to replace.

Of course, make sure to unplug the unit when you're servicing and disconnecting wires to the switches.

So. I should just unplug it for now?
Expert:  Tyler Z. replied 6 years ago.
well, the light isn't going to harm anything so it doesn't need to be unplugged if you want to use it as is for now---but you need to unplug it when you disconnect the switches to test.
