Kenmore flat top stove, model 970-687221, but I believe the hardware is made by Electrolux.

Issue is the front-left burner does not turn on.  I tested, based on this video ( the switch and the burner.  Both the switch and burner have a consistent resistance reading

What else can be an issue I can easily test at home?  I have a hard time understanding the schematics diagram, if someone can help decipher it that would be great!  I attached the troubleshoot schematics in pdf format

You might have a bad board - put your volt meter on L1 & L2 see if you have voltage coming to the switch when you turn the knob on. If no voltage you have a bad board - probably bad relay!
