Unplug the unit and remove the back panel on the unit there are a lot of T15 torx screws to remove. Once they are all off you can get to the heater and check if the thermal reset is tripped. There is a thermostat mounted to the heater duct housing that may be tripped. Often you can just press the reset button on it...CLICK HERE IMAGE.. Check that and see and if that is fine then you may have a burned out heater. You would have to test that at the heater terminals for continuity.

Happy Holidays..All I ask is please use the....FINISH BY RATING link at the top your page to select a 5 STAR RATING before leaving today....this is important for my status on the site plus without a rating I will receive ZERO credit(NO PAY) from the site for assisting you.
