Learn how your appliance is supposed to operate so you can determine if it is malfunctioning.
This is unique to Canadian range models. No American range uses such a set up to my knowledge.
Older Canadian ranges have internal fuses. There will be at least 6 and possibly as many as 8 standard glass Edison base fuses. There will be a two fuses for the two left hand pair of surface elements. There will be a two fuses for the two right hand pair of surface elements. There will be a two fuses for the oven plus possibly 1-2 more for the clock, lights and appliance outlet. Those fuses may be located at the top of the control console, the base of the control console at the front or on very old ranges, in the storage drawers area.
Both fuses must be good in order for each set of surface elements to function. Range elements operate on 240 volts. Each fuse protects one 120 volt leg in the power circuit to those elements. Two 120 volt legs are needed for 240 volts. If one of those two fuses fails and opens up, no power will be available to power the elements although the 120 volt feed may still be 'live' at the element and provide danger during service or use.
