This range has been turning on and off on its own and the temperature fluctuates from desired settings. The manufacture also has various ranges that are similar/same that are recalled for bad switches. We did report our findings to the manufacture and have video if I can find it of the burners not turning off even after the switch was set in the off position. I personally ordered new switches and if memory serves me correct they were the fix for the recall items on the other like units. I got no where with the manufacture on our issues which was 1-1.5 years ago. We only replaced the switches that were having burner issues at that time. Today 8/21/15 my spouse informed me that while cleaning the range the back burner was hot and was not in use. So again the range is turning itself on and off with no one controlling it. It got hot enough now that the "hot surface light" indicates the surface is elevated. Again the unit was not in use. It is my belief that this is a well know problem as others online in a search the last time I had issues were concerned and our serial numbers were not coming up for recall. This is a "VERY SERIOUS" issue that needs to be evaluated.
