Do you hear a click when pressing start from the board relays?

Customer: replied 1 year ago.
no click when the start button is pressed

Then you likely have a bad safety inlet or outlet high limit thermostat. You need to check them for continuity on the blower housing and heater. The blower one is likely bad.
