What issue are you having and what is the model number?
OK can you remove the back panel to get at the heater terminals?
Ok with the unit unplugged...check across the two heater terminals for continuity...if you do not have that there...replace the heater. Here is a link to it with a video
All I ask is please use the Star Rating Link at the top of your page before leaving, that is the only way I am paid anything through the site and that will also get you a DIRECT LINK emailed to you to get back to me!.....tips are greatly appreciated so thank you very much for using this service.

OK check the thermal link on the upper outer left side of the heater housing for continuity.
Does it test closed? should read 0 ohms
OK then you either have a power issue or yes a bad timer for sure!
If you have 240 volts to the unit replace the timer
Get to the terminal block and check across the two outside wires for 240 volts...that is where the cord connects to the unit.
Yes that does not matter...check the power to the unit with the volt meter
What kind of volt meter do you have and what is it set to?
