You can get a replacement kit for that wire. It is common for them to do that over time. Use the audible portion of the meter to check the element or get an analog one. If the needle moves over when you check the heater then you have continuity and the heater is good, these new fangled meters are so confusing to a novice.

Don't make that jumper get the kit, unless you just love to tinker constantly with a repair.
