Question about Sanyo SK-VF7S 1350 Watts Toaster Oven with Convection Cooking
Since it is unlikely that each element has a separate fuse, the element has probably failed.
To verify this and check the element for continuity, you would need a meter capable of measuring resistance, a common feature on even the cheapest meter.
You can buy one of these in auto parts stores, electronic supply stores, on eBay, or, if you have one close to you, at Harbor Freight cheaper than other local stores.
The most basic can measure AC, DC, DC current, continuity and resistance and digital meters have pretty much replaced the standard analog meter; you will be reading from a numerical LCD display. They are useful to have at home or for your car for checking many things. Instructions are simple, even understandable if you can correct the butchered English typically found in the manual.
Observe sensible safety by pulling the plug on items measured for continuity or resistance.
If you do want to measure the element, you will find very low resistance if the element is intact; somewhere between 2-3 Ohms and not likely more than 10 Ohms. You will need to disconnect one end of the element and then measure from end-to-end with the meter.
