I have a glass top stove. Which light are you talking about? Mine has two different lights. One by the burner knob showing the burner is on and one on the cook top showing the burner is hot. The one on the cook top stays on until the burners are cooled off enough to be safe. The one by the knob goes off when the knob is turned off. Does your light stay on all the time? If so then you need to call for service.

I only have 1 light, for when the burner is on but it

stays lit until the cooktop cools off. It should say in your owners manual how yours works. As far as I know all the stoves like this have some sort of light that indicates the cooktop is still hot.

Hey letscook, I went thru my owners manual and of course they don't have an answer. If it's a Whirlpool you can try calling them at 1-800-253-1301

My sister's stove top has a light that's by the knob. It stays lighted while the burner is on and until it cools off after it's turned off. It's a safety feature so you don't accidentally put your hand or some combustable item on a hot burner.
