Black Dot by Burner Control Knobs


  • Why is there a black dot above the burner control knobs on a Dual Fuel (DF) Range, Sealed Burner Rangetop, and GR Series Gas Range?
  • Should the black dot above the control knob on a DF, SRT, and GR light up?
  • Why is the light above the burner knob on a DF, SRT, and GR not working?
  • What is the black dot to the right of the burner knob?


The black dot above the burner control knob on a DF, SRT, and GR is not a light. The dot is meant to serve as a marker to help in knowing the setting of the control knob.

  • DF, SRT, and GR Series ranges do not have any type of indicator light above or behind each knob to indicate they are in use.
  • The black dot below of the burner knob indicates which burner (front or rear) the burner knob controls.
