I turned off my GE oven last night and found that it was still

Resolved Question:

I turned off my GE oven last night and found that it was still hot this morning. I've unplugged it and it cooled down, but when I plugged it back in, it heated up again. Any idea what's happening here? Is it an issue with the element or the connection between the element and the on/off knob?

was the element red hot or just giving off heat but not getting red?

One small section (1/4") was red hot. Everything else was black, but hot.

ok your element is shorted out, Part 3358this needs to be changed, you can order this @ unplug the range before taking element out, thanks Bryan

Great! Is removing the element similar to removing the burners on the stove top, just unplug and plug back in? In other words, it changing this out something that anyone can do?
