Hi, I have a GE oven. The oven temperature light stays on when I turn off the oven. The only time it turns off is when I am baking and it reaches the proper temperature. When the oven cools off again, the light comes back on.

Contractor's Assistant: OK. To minimize me, please click the down arrow at the top right corner of this box. OK. To minimize me, please click the down arrow at the top right corner of this box.

I just replaced the heating element on the bottom because the other one burned out. This is when the light issue started.
