Question about Cooktops
Remove all traces of foil ( with power off) and make sure the coil is fully seated into the electrical terminal block.. these are typically just pushed in to seat them.. Run the heater up to full power and let it stay there for 10-15 minutes.. if you don't see any problems with it... in all probability its ok.. and can be run that way..
I am speculating on what may have happend... perhaps a piece of foil flashed on you and sparked a little.. foil is electrically conductive but the coil element itself is grounded externally so if it doesn't spark after it is run up during your test.. it should be ok.. If you are uncompfortable or feel it poses a threat..get a replacement heating element...
Hope that helps..
