Expert:  David Bowden replied 2 months ago.

from reading your post it sounds like the heating element has shorted out, which would cause the breakers to immediately trip.

Expert:  David Bowden replied 2 months ago.

if the breakers didn't trip there is a good chance of electrocution

Expert:  David Bowden replied 2 months ago.

if you have electrical testing equipment, you can check to see if the element has the correct voltage

Expert:  David Bowden replied 2 months ago.

If you do not have testing equipment, it may become necessary for you to contact a qualified local service provider, who has the proper testing equipment and can perform much more detailed onsite troubleshooting, after which they can discuss the best cost worthy solutions with you.
