Electric Stovetop Suddenly Stopped Working

Sears Kenmore, model 790.9621340C, 8 yeasr old. Working fine yesterday. Today, suddenly, none of the burners will heat up. The indicator lights also stopped working. Oven, however, functions normally.
Blown fuse of some kind? Reset button somewhere? Help! Thank you!!

It's actually pretty strange for all the burners to go out at one time. I believe the burner controls are daisy chained with 240volts. Most use a red and black wire. I would check for 240vac at the surface burner controls. I'm thinking a burned/broken wire from the burner controls to the supply at the back of the range.

There should also be a simmer control board but I think that only controls/affects one burner.

I can't find a wiring diagram so if this doesn't help..... locate the wiring diagram and post it and we'll go from there. It'll usually be in or on the back cover.
