Most of the time it's a lack of power. Check the breaker, then confirm that the unit is getting power. If it still doesn't work you may have a bad heating element, you'll have to use Lp till you can replace it.

it,s ot a laco of power i used a 50 amp box, it, s brand new, i should not have to put in a new heating element.

I agree, but it's something only a test will tell. You may very well have gotten a bad element even brand spankin new. That has never happened to you before? Test it and see. The only other possibility would be a loose or broken connection but it's new, I know, these things happen, even on new equipment.
