I have one of those quartz top electric ranges. One of the "burners" quit, it has a Nichrome waffled ribbon snaking around a pattern partially imbedded in asbestos or the equivalent. The problem is where the ribbon connects to a 1/4" male spade lug that is in a ceramic block, the spotweld has failed. Is there any way to repair it? I bought a new one with the temp control (only comes as a unit) for $130...OUCH! But, if I can repair it, I can save buying the next new one. Somehow I think my 250 amp spotwelder isn't the right tool.
I never thought I would have liked electric but this thing is WAY cool!
