Why does the "element on" light stay lit on my Kenmore 790 electric range even though none of the burners are on?

"Element on" light stays lit even after verifying that none of the burners are on. I have turned all burners on and off several times (all appear to still work) and even unplugged the range in an attempt to possibly reset some indicator. Is there a reset button or sequence that I can issue or is this an indication that something else may be wrong with the range?
