What would cause the red light on my electric stove to stay ON even when all the burner switches are OFF?

I have a GE electric range model JBP26G0K2AD and the right side power light stays ON and won’t go OFF. The burners go off but the light stays on.

If there is a surface indicator light for each side, which ever side the light stays on would indicate that one of the two right hand burner switches has a stuck "pilot" light contact. In order to correct the failure the failed burner switch will have to be replaced.

If there is only one Power light, the failure could be anyone of the 4 burner switches.

I recommend calling a service technician to diagnose which switch has failed and replace the switch.
