Thank you for your question and I understand your concern.

The oven operation is controlled by the electronic oven control. If it has failed, it will need to be replaced.

If the complete Bake element is glowing bright red then I would suspect a faulty oven control.

If the Bake element happens to short internally it can also stay partially on even when the oven control has shut power off to the element. There are two legs of voltage being supplied to the element. One leg/line of voltage is always connected to one terminal of the bake element and if it the elements shorts/burn out, it will cause a portion of the element to stay on until the power supply has been shut off.

The Bake element can be removed and tested with an ohm meter to see if it's faulty. NOTE: Disconnect the power cord from the power source before removing the bake element.

I added a YouTube video showing how to test the bake element.

If you do not feel confident repairing this problem yourself, then you can have it repaired at your home by a Sears technician. Here is a link for the website: Sears Home Services .
