I have a Whirlpool Super Capacity 465  (GR395LXG) which recently developed a problem with the Surface heating indicator light.   This light indicates if one of the heating coils on the right hand side is on or not.   This right hand light now always stays on.  There is also one on the left hand side and it works fine.   I have tried to unplug the unit(AC line) and the coil but this did not work.   Looking for help on how to fix this problem.

You have something shorted or grounded to that light or the light is shorted.  Will need to see what is causing power to this light at all times.

this is the new kitchenaid unit which is built at the same plant as the b/i ovens(joy to service!),we have run into this issue numerous times, the surface switches are actually potentiometers and circuit boards which also contain a tiny microswitch that closes for lighting the hot light. we condemned a number of these ranges earlier this year due to this issue,finally manufacturer supplied us with 4 new/improved switches to install in each unit and seems to have solved issue. our conclusion has been theoriginal microswitches were not up to snuff. this unit should be new enough that kitchen aid will repair it under warranty,please contact them regarding this as they may have now issued a service bulletin on it.
