I bought a 1947 house about 6 months ago, the Tappan Fabulous 400 that came with had one non-working burner and the large oven was non-working as well at that time. Since then, the small oven has ceased to warm properly (if I let it pre-heat for about an hour, it gets up to maybe 250 degrees).

The burner I am not too concerned about, as I do have three other working burners (it would be great if I could figure out the problem, but not critical). I can't live without an operable oven though! :-(

I am hoping that it may be as simple as needing new elements, but I'm not even sure where to find those (I looked on e-bay, no luck).

You mean in the stove or to buy replacements??

You can read about testing range elements at the following link and find a tutorial on getting replacement parts for your appliances in the 'Repair Parts' section of my site linked below.

How do I test an electric stove element?

DanO: I do know where the elements are, I have not actually tried removing them yet, but I suspect I will be able to handle that without too much difficulty. I do not have an ohm meter to test with, but I notice the web site says that if the element is getting warm when it should be getting hot, then the problem is not the element. :-( So my small oven apparently has a power problem; I can only hope that the large oven is as simple as an element replacement.
