Stove question

Last night I was cooking with a friend and we accidentally got some egg in the burner of my electric stove. And by in the burner, I mean the egg went into the shallow metal depression underneath the burner coil and through a hole in the bottom of the depression. There's a level surface and I can see where the egg is, but I can't reach it. (If my description isn't clear enough, I can try to take a photo with my cell phone, but I can't guarantee quality.)

Is there a way I can get into that portion of the stove to clean it up? I don't want to take it apart (I live in an apartment so it's not my stove, and I would have no idea what I was doing). If there's no way for me to get at the egg, will it be okay to still use that burner?

Alternately, should I just call maintenance and ask them to take a look at it? I've got some other stuff I need them to take care of anyway.

EDIT: Thanks for the advice, guys!
