Product: GE Profile Stove. Model Number, PS968S P2SS, Serial Number: AV2 76510Q.

Starting with a cold stove, my wife turned on the front, left electric heating element and the lamp that shows the stovetop is active/warming blew with a loud explosion. Sparks emanated from the lamp fixture/socket about 12" from the stove nearly burning my wife. The fire/sparks were so bright she lost her sight for about 9 minutes. The stove circuit breaker also tripped. The stove top was cold and dry when turning on the stove. I kept pieces of the bulb that blew out of the socket (see attached pictures).

We are concerned for others using this model stove (someone could get seriously burned) and we are concerned about using the other side of the stove and the oven.
