The switches that control the "Hot Surface" indicator light are included in each burner element assembly. This model does not have them available as a seperate component. You must determine which element has the defective sensor switch and replace the complete element.

CLICK HERE for a picture of your elements with sensor switches.

You have 2 - 6" elements CLICK HERE to order
1 - 8" CLICK HERE to order
1 - 9" CLICK HERE to order

To test: REMOVE POWER FROM RANGE, detach and lift the glass top, then at each element remove one wire from each sensor switch and then test for continuity on each switch. When you find the one switch that has continuity with the range off and the elements cold, that is the one you will need to replace.

The hot surface sensor switches are the terminals marked 1B & 2B they should have the Gray and Gray/Orange trace wires attached according the the wiring diagram.
