I found a blown fuse on my 10+ year old, 4 element, electric stove.
When I replaced it with a new one (not knowing what has caused that):
- an indicator light automatically came on (which normally indicate an
element that one side of the stove is on)
- None of the element heats up
- Turning on the switch for individual element bring up the heat i.e.
it works properly.
- Why does the indicator light turn itself on (while all element dials
are off) as soon as I plug in a new fuse?
- Is there typically one fuse per element?
Thanks in advance.

Something likely "shorted" at one time....pot boiled over, tin foil in
the element receptical, burnt wire, etc and the contact in one of the
surface switchs is now tacked/welded closed and staying on all the
2 fuses for left side elements and 2 for right side....they share the
