Make sure that there are no breaks or debris obstructing the wires of the heating element.
To test the heating element, use a digital multimeter.
Set the multimeter to 200 under ACV.
Bring the ends of the multimeter toward the two lead wires.
If the circuit between the wires is closed, the numbers on the multimeter should keep changing.
If the numbers are not changing, replace the heating element.
If the circuit is closed, check the thermal cutout.
