LG Range Cooktop element won't turn off

We have LG - model LRE3083ST/00 where the front right glass top cooktop element will not turn off after turning it off on the push button keypad. The display shows "HS" but the element is staying on. Any help would be appreciated. The range is almost 10 years old. (eventually after 10 minutes or so the element finally turned off). Worried that it will come back on its own when were not home or whatever. Any suggestions to consider before calling for repair service... i.e like replace a part. Thanks.

Update. Now when the back right burner was turned on the front right burner also turned on.

Unfortunately this does not look like a DIY repair.
This is a very involved electric range. Very expensive control board.

There may be a tech sheet in a plastic bag on the back of the range.
It may have some helpful information on it.

I was looking at the service manual for a similar unit.... very technical.
Similar downloadable service manual

Could the light you see be a Hot Surface indication and not the status of the burner you shut off. The HS light is controlled by a temperature sensitive switch and will stay light after the last burner is off until the temperature off setpoint is reached.

Thanks for the feedback. Yes, I noticed the control board is expensive, about 1/3 the cost of a new Range.

It could be an indicator issue but that wouldn't explain one burner apparently turning on when another one is turned on.
