Expert:  Bryan replied 5 years ago.
check in the drawer at the bottom if it has one.
Customer: replied 5 years ago.
Does not have drawer. It has 2 ovens.
Expert:  Bryan replied 5 years ago.
it should be there somewhere , look inside the doors.
Customer: replied 5 years ago.
It is not on the doors or inside the ovens. Manual says it is on back panel. I can not move the unit.
Expert:  Bryan replied 5 years ago.
Okay I can't look up the parts for you without a model number, does the burner work correctly?
Customer: replied 5 years ago.
Yes everything works just that the hot surface light stays on.
Expert:  Bryan replied 5 years ago.
Well there is a sensor in the burner itself that has failed, sometimes you can buy just the sensor other times you need to replace the whole burner, this can be a real pain in the neck to do also, you may have to call for a service tech to come out and replace you the sensor or the burner.
