Default RESET button on electric stoves ??

In today's paper, a guy reported about his dead stove ( obviously

electric )
that he tried to RESET the breaker and when that did not work he had

to call
the repairman

"Technician pulled the unit out of the cabinet about 6 inches, hit

the overload
button and slid everything back into place. He was done in 3 minutes

and wrote
me a bill for $142.50"

This post is NOT about the cost and time involved.

1) Do all or most ELECTRIC stoves have RESET/OVERLOAD buttons ?

2) WHERE are they normally located ??
This sounds like it was a wall oven.
How about a normal standing on the floor model ?

Porbably 99% do not.

Have seen a few built in oven thermostats with a reset button but that
would be rare to see. Have also seen a few very old ranges with
resetable breakers in them. Too bad the article didn't mention a make
and model#.
