How do I troubleshoot stovetop element getting too hot?

Our GE stovetop has one burner that acts up. Sometimes it behaves normally but other times even at the low-med setting it suddenly getting SUPER hot - like glowing red hot on its own. Hard to predict when this will happen and we obviously want to fix this. How do I figure out what part to replace?

I suppose a model number would be helpful. It's one of those countertop stoves. I assume the model number is visible if I flip it up?
