Default Glass cook top- 3 burners don't work

I recently bought a home and the stove was included in the package. However, 3 of the 5 burners do not work. Is there an easy fix for these things? The stove is in good condition otherwise-- no cracks, stains, etc. I'm wondering if there is a fuse we can replace, if it's worth having someone else come fix it, or if there is something else we can try on our own.

Any help is much appreciated!

Check each [elec.?] burner with an ohmmeter. 2kw @ 240v should be ~29 ohms.
Replace the 'connector blocks' while you're at it.

How is the spacing on it? Is it a four top five? Are all the ones on one side working but not on the others?

It is a 5 burner stove-- 2 on each side and a warmer in the top middle.

The upper left (small) burner and the lower right (biggest burner) are the ones that work.
