When your element shorts out, there is a relay that tends to short out as well. if you remove the kick panel below the oven door there should be a plastic relay somewhere on the far right usually or the far left under the oven along the front. You'll need to replace this relay and you should be good to go again.
There relay isn't anything else that would cause the element to stay on all the time. Either the relay or thermostat came faulty, or one of them isn't wired properly. Nothing else would cause the element to just keep heating.
I would go with that because there really is nothing else that would cause the element to keep heating when it shouldn't---just the relay or the thermostat. Also, I should mention that if the element is grounded out it might keep heating, but it wouldn't get so hot that it glows since it would only be receiving 110 volts when it's not supposed to be heating.
Alright well good luck. It definitely has to do with the thermostat or the relay, there is nothing else that can cause it. If you do replace the relay again, cut back any of the wires that were damaged if they look burnt. That can cause the new relay to fail if you connect burnt wires to the relay.
Hello again. I'm just following up because I haven't heard back from you and I see this question is still open. Is there anything else I can help you with?
