Ok there is something you need to look at here. If your using this on the counter top in the kitchen - you will want to double check the GFCI to be sure the outlet did not trip off. Other thing is if the element got too hot - the thermal relay would have kicked itself off in order to protect it.

Now once you have checked this and you still have problems, - let me know.

I have already check the things you mentioned. Where is the terminal rely and how do you reset it? Other electrical appliances I have a visiable reset button. This unit does not have one visiable. How do you reset it?

If this unit hadsone - it would be a matter of waiting until it cooled down. Thermal relays are not a push to reset type of thing. They need to reach a certain temperature before automatically resetting. Now the other possibility is that your heating elements have burned out. If this is the case the elements will need to be replaced.
