The original parts are no longer available, so you can't get exact replacements for any of the fancy electronic bits. That means the "set and forget" thermostat module isn't available.
However, it's easy to put a standard burner or oven element into these old stoves. If the fancy knob for that burner is busted, just put a regular knob in. The technology for coil-burner electric stoves really hasn't advanced since the 1950s - in fact, the standard cheap/basic stoves you see in almost every apartment use almost all the same repair parts as 1950s stoves.
Ask around on antique appliance forums. There are collectors who have these things - for instance, I happen to have a Frigidaire Flair service manual from the same time period - but for most repairs you don't need them. The wiring diagram will be inside the unit somewhere and that's really all you need.
I did write this assuming this is an all-electric model. Apparently the Tappan 400 also came in gas; in that case it would be just as easy since basic gas stove parts are just as near-universal.
