Repairman1981 :

well if the board has been replaced ( usually the cause) then you have either a heater or thermostat problem. Did the tech helping you not have you test these?

Repairman1981 :

Also do you have a Volt/ohm meter?

Repairman1981 :

You will need the ohm meter to check resistance of the heater and thermostat
