Question about Maytag MER6872BAS Gemini Electric Kitchen Range
This is probably normal. the element has a fine wire inside the tube that you see and depending on where it starts in the tube it will start glowing from there.

depending on type of unit. most of the time they are very easy to change out.. look at element locate two screws. go shut off breaker to oven.. make sure its has no power. after removing screws element should come out fairly easy.. make sure not to let wires fall back inside unit. if so not to worry. just pull unit out from wall and remove back panel. push wire back through. hope this helps

You may have a simple problem of a defective igniter. The following link explains a little theory about igniters and how to access the them on a gas range:
If you are having ignition problems with one of the oven manifolds (bake or broil), it may be a simple matter of a weak or bad igniter. Just because an igniter glows, does not mean it is good. If the igniter is weak, the gas safety valve will not open and gas will not flow.
NOTE: If BOTH manifolds were experiencing the same problem, you would potentially have had a bad regulator or electronic oven control (EOC) board. The EOC controls all your oven features.
A replacement igniter for your range can be purchased at any of the following websites:
If the model number is correct, the part number for a replacement igniter is 74007498. The part should also come complete with installation instructions.
If you require additional assistance, please let me know. If your model number is different, please post back with a COMPLETE model number (usually located on a nameplate around the oven door, or lower drawer opening) so that I may assist you further. Some manufacturers place the model number on the back of the operator console.
I hope this is helpful to you.

For the oven their is 2 elements 1 for bake and 1 for broil,are each glowing red hot on the respictive settings of bake and broil? their is no trird hidden element. Plus i know manufactures come out with new features all the time,i attend factory trainging sessions a couple times a year but i am confused as to what the "STEAM CLEAN OPTION" IS??
THE SELF CLEAN cycle utilizes both elements to clean the oven adding steam is a new one on me
