Today our electrical supply went funny - some lights became much dimmer than usual, the time on the radio became very dim, and internet went down for 20 min - but nothing lost power. Ten minutes later it was normal again. Afterwards, the oven will not heat (all surface elements, and inside coils, won't heat) but the oven itself has power (display and oven light are fine). We were using a surface element before this power fluctuation and it was working fine then just stopped.

Also, our dryer (laundry) has power but will not heat, and our electric baseboard heaters appear to have stopped working (perfect - it's winter and we're in Montreal)

Any ideas? Thanks!

Sounds like you may have lost half the line.

Try shutting the main breaker off then back on.

If this does nothing then you will have to check the power at either the stove or dryer receptacle.
L1 and L2 to Neutral should both be 120 volts.
L1 to L2 should be 240 volts.

If you have no electrical experience it may be advisable to call an electrician.
