I strive for a 5 star rating from everyone especially our JA members.

Answer:

Typically either the high limit thermostat is burned out on the heater or the heater is burned out. Check part #8 at this link for continuity then check the two large heater terminals right by it for continuity, whichever is not reading continuity is bad.
