Stove burner was set on 'low' setting to simmer a pot. Burner control system failed causing much power to go to burner. Burner and stove top became very hot. Heat intensity was enough to damage a heavy aluminum pot and discolor paint on the stove control unit.

Power was cut to the stove at the circuit breaker. Stove cooled.

After stove cooled to room temperature, it was noted that the 'hot top' indicator light stayed on and would not turn off.

No fire or injuries were caused by this incident. Burner has not been used since this incident.

Stove was examined for alphanumeric model and serial number information. None was readily visible.
