My electric stove won't heat--anyone want some uncooked burgers?

I just went into my kitchen to start supper, and found that neither the burners nor the oven of my electric stove will heat. Everything looks normal, and the element on button is lighting up, but there's no heat at all, and the hot surface button doesn't light. I used the oven last night, and the stovetop this morning, and all was well. When I realised it wasn't working, I went and flipped the breaker switch, off and back on, just in case that was the issue, but that didn't fix anything.

The stove is an electric glass-topped Frigidaire. It's built into the surrounding counters, and is relatively new--probably five to eight years old.
Is there anything obvious I should try to fix this before I take the (dreaded) plan of last resort and call the landlord? I would strongly prefer to fix this myself, or at least feel secure that I've exhausted all the DIY possibilities, before calling someone.
