To be clear, all the burners turn on when you turn the burner on? Not as soon as you plug it in? Also, what burners exactly are turning on?

Customer: replied 11 months ago.
The burners on the top of the range are in off position. I turn on the oven and the oven begins to heat up, in addition
to that the burners on the top of range start heating up. I did not turn the burners on, the burners switches are in off position.

OK are you sure you have the power cord to the oven attached properly. You'll need a multimeter to test but if you check the terminal block on the back of the oven you should have 220 volts between the 2 outside power wires. Then if you test between each out side wire when compared with the middle neutral wire you should have 110 volts. If all that checks good, your display control board has shorted. This is your mother board for the oven and it would need to be replaced to resolve the issue.
