When repairing the heaters on these machines, we found that you may be able to clean the contacts on the thermostat. We use 600 sandpaper. Remove the thermostat from the heater, sandwich the sandpaper between the contacts, and use the sand paper to clean the contacts. This doesn't always work, but it's worth a shot.
