Did you shut the power off to the heater first?

Yes, to reset. Then turned back on. There is power to the unit.

Did you hear a click at all when you pressed the button in?
Customer: replied 6 years ago.
No. That is what is strange. You'd think you would hear or feel something. But the button didn'y\t move at all.

Ok this means that you need a new one and the one you have is broken. Mind you if you change this one you might as well change the other one.
