Aqueon heater "pops"

Is it ok for a aqueon heater to pop or should I return it? It sounds like a pistol shrimp in my betta aquarium

Where are the suction cups clipped onto the heater? If they are near the element then that sometimes causes it. At least that's what caused mine to pop anyway. I simply moved them closer to the top and have not heard any pops since.
