Hi Joe,

Thank you for waiting.

This is a common problem with the switch. One of the switches for the elements has a shorted contact. Remove the back of the control panel to access the switches. Look on the switch for the terminal marked P1 or P. Remove that wire from each switch, one at a time, until the light goes out. Replace that switch. Here's the picture of the switch. 


Let me know if you have further questions.
