Question about Maytag MER6772 Gemini Electric Kitchen Range
Bottom heating element started sparking with flames eventually present even after I turned the oven off. It did not stop sparking until I flipped the breaker off. Prior to this about 3 months ago, the heating element wire burned into and had to be replaced. Is my stove too dangerous to use or can I just replace the heating element?
the most common problem for your description is that your bottom ignitor is not working properly just because the ignitor glows doesnt mean your ignitor is working it has to draw 3 amps or more to ignite the bottom burner part number for the ignitor is 12400035 let me know how you make out

The problem is caused by a shorted BROIL relay on the Electronic Oven Control board. I have experienced this problem before. The oven will continue to heat because it's being provided a constant power source. You are right to assume the reason for the oven temp error. This is common too.
Here's a TEMPORARY fix you can try:
1. Secure power to the range and remove the back panel from the console.
2. Unplug the BROIL element wires from the EOC and wrap them with electrical tape. It should be marked on the circuit card.
This will leave your broiler out of service, but you should be able to use the bake function. This should only be a TEMPORARY fix. The real fix is to replace the EOC. In the mean time, DO NOT leave the range plugged in while not in use (especially, if you are not going to be home, or while sleeping). This could be a definite fire hazard. If you post back with your model number (located around the oven door, or bottom drawer opening) I can give you an idea of how much the EOC would cost, and give you advice on how to replace it.

you most likely had a bake or broil burner short out. the unit may seem to heat but it probably doesnt bake right. look at the elements and see if they have a rough or blistered apperance to them. if so it probably isnt working. you can also check to see if both elements are glowing red when they are on.
try the broil cycle and if its ok then try the bake cycle, my guess is one of them is blown out.
