Does a Kenmore stove top have a red indicator light even when the stove top is off?

In most cases, a Kenmore stove top does not have a red indicator light that remains on when the stove top burners are completely turned off and cool. The indicator lights on a stove top are typically designed to illuminate when a burner is in use or when the surface is still hot after cooking, serving as a safety feature to prevent accidental burns. When a burner is turned on, the corresponding indicator light usually turns on to show that the burner is actively heating. This helps users identify which burners are in use and which ones are still hot even after they've been turned off, allowing them to avoid accidentally touching the hot surface. Once the burners are turned off and have cooled down, the indicator lights should typically turn off as well. This signals that it's safe to touch the stove top without the risk of burning yourself. If you notice that a red indicator light remains on even when the stove top is completely off and cool, it could indicate a malfunction or an issue with the stove's electronics or sensors. In such cases, it's advisable to refer to the user manual for troubleshooting steps or contact Kenmore's customer support or a professional technician for assistance. Safety is paramount, so any unexpected behavior in the indicator lights or other stove functions should be addressed promptly to ensure the stove's proper operation and user safety. Keep in mind that specific features and designs can vary between different models and versions of Kenmore stoves, so it's always best to consult the user manual or the manufacturer's support for accurate information about the indicator lights and their behavior on your particular stove.
