I must have overheated the burner. Nothing spilled and the mark will not go away with cleaning. Is there anything that I can do about the mark on the surface?

What kind of stove top? Glass? Ceramic? Induction? Coil? – longneck Oct 9 '13 at 23:10

I doubt the problem was overheating. Probably something on the bottom of the pan burned, or even hard water can sometimes leave a mark.

Try some glass stovetop cleaner and/or a Brillo pad.
