Hello, I'm new to these forums.  So bare with me.

I have a GE range, model VJ32BFT-1.  Recently it blew a fuse and I replaced it only for it to blow again.  So I went to Home Depot and they told me to replace the terminal block and element.  I replaced the top left one since it sparked when it blew the fuse.
Now the light is always on, regardless if I turn the stove on or it is off.  Also I think the elements are a little warm when its off, and that worries me.  I don't know what to do.

Any help would be much appreciated,

Thanks!

when the wires grounded and you saw sparks,the current welded the contacts in the switch that controls that element,the switch requires replacement as well. you can obtain one through this website.        :D
