    Cooltop stoves use a nicrome  or someting like that ribbon and it opened on my big burner on the cooltop that has big and small tops and you can switch from one to another.

    Everyone I talked to said you could not fix them.

    I took a piece of metal from an electrical connector and firmly crimped the ends together and it has worked for about 6 months now.

    Could save you $100. 

    Crimp them good and solid and keep the ribbon flat.

    Wow! We recently replaced 2 burners. with the first repair, I had the appliance store people do the repair. My husband was able to repair the second burner. Thanks for the great tip.
