Customer: replied 2 months ago.
as a hypothetical could this be a fuse of some sort. I am not very good with mechanical fixes but could possibly find someone to put parts in

I am needing to be away from my computer for the rest of the day will get back to you as I can

yes the unit has thermal fuses that is what I was going to have you test.

You have two thermal fuses if either get hot and fail then the drive motor will not run and the unit can not heat unless the motor is running.

With out being able to do any testing ,you could have a faulty control board ,one of the two fuses could have failed or the drive motor itself has failed.

Since you have no way to do any testing I recommend that you call some one in to do a in home repair on the unit.
