Default Kitchenaid rear burners not working

The two rear burners on my glass cook top Kitchenaid KESC307HBS4 electric range have stopped working. The front burners and oven are functioning fine.

When I turn the dials to fire up the back burners, the lights next to the dials light up but the burners do nothing.

It sounds like a fairly straight forward repair and would like to do it myself.

Thanks!

No power from the switchs, broken/burnt wire between the switchs and the elements, bad elments. The elements have a safety/thermal switch that can prevent them from comming on but they only appear to come with the element.
Basically if the element is getting power ( 220-240 volts AC ) the surface switch is ok and the wires are ok and the element is bad. If the element is not getting power, the circuit would have to be traced back towards the surface switch to see where the power is lost.

Element, surface LR
