Question about Kenmore 40494 / 40495 / 40499 Electric Single Oven
The element on our Kenmore oven lit up like a sparkler and continued even after it was turned off. Only when it was unplugged did it stop sparking.
I had the same problem and it would not stop burning until I switched off the circuit breaker.

Yes the element failed and they will arc when they do that.Ive actually seen people hose them down with a fire extinguisher only to have it still arc. Bake elements are inexpensive and very easy to install.
