Hello and welcome to just answer my name is ***** ***** I will be the one to assist you. When you refer to the coils are you referring to the heating element?

If so this part can be tested with a multimeter if you have one to see if it is your problem and can be replaced.

I meant the heating element. Here is my meter. What do I set it on and how do I test?

wanted to check in with you to see if you were able to determine if the problem is with the heating element or not?

If so all I ask is you rate with 5 stars at the top so I am credited for my time. Rating does not stop you from getting back to me in the event you need further assistance.

My apologies I thought I had sent a video that informed you to set it to its lowest setting.
