Broiler is the only element working on stove/oven

My tenant said that their breaker for the stove tripped and now the only element working is the broiler. None of the stove top elements or the bottom oven element work.

I would first suspect a broken, disconnected, or otherwise faulty neutral, whether at the panel, the receptacle, or the unit.

Since you're essentially talking about the potential safety of your tenant would calling a repairman be out of line? You could have a hot shorting out to ground.
