You checked continuity on all four elements from H1-H2 on all switches so you know the elements are ok.
Now you need to check L1-L2, (should probably be black and red wires), on each switch and see if you have 220Volts at the switches, if not then check each individually L1 to ground and L2 to ground, then which ever one doesn't show a reading of 110volts needs to be followed to find where power is being lost. Look for a wire that has slipped loose from a connector or burnt wiring at terminal block in back.
I don't have a wiring diagram for your unit so I don't know what the thermal disc under the cooktop controls, maybe shuts down all burners if an overheat condition occurs?

The other thermal disc/Bi-metal ref#20 is the fan control so that shouldn't have anything to do with it.

Kdog, I saw that latch switch on the diagram on back of oven, it was the only component on L1 other than the wiring that could open the circuit. Thanks for your input also.
This is an excellent site with very prompt and top troubleshooters. And in the Immortal words of the Terminator....I'll be back.
