My wife is is the hospital so I have to cook for myself again. Last night I was boiling some water on the electric range and noticed that there was one spot on the outermost spiral of the heating element which was a much brighter orange than the rest of it, which was a cherry red at that time. The bright spot is about a quarter-inch long and goes right across the element. It looks to me like a spot of high resistance which might burn out one of these days. Any other opinions?
