Hello and thanks for using this service, if you have been waiting do not worry or get upset I am just one of the techs on here and I try to get to as many customers as I can and I just picked up your question now. Please give me time to respond as typing, researching and adding links takes me time to do so please be patient and often I will ask you questions to narrow down the issue so do not rate me until we are done thanks.

Does the unit click when you press start?

Have you removed the top and checked the belt to see if it is broken?

Customer: replied 1 year ago.
everything on the control panel is lit up and there are no sounds and the belt is fine
Expert:  Appliance Guru replied 1 year ago.

OK can you remove the front of the machine and check the lower burner thermostat, it is likely tripped.

The one on the very bottom of the burner housing itself correct, it is hard to see and has a reset button on it.

Customer: replied 1 year ago.
I did not see a resettable switch
Expert:  Appliance Guru replied 1 year ago.

Yes because that is the issue, it is located on the bottom of the burner housing and has a push button reset, trust me that is tripped.
