  1. Check for any damaged wires coming from the printed circuit board to the heating element.
  2. Do a continuity and ohms test on the element to make sure the element is in good condition.
  3. Test the NTC sensor to make sure it is within 5% of the designed ohms reading at the set temperature that the manufacturer shows on their date sheet.
  4. Sometimes the pressure switch may be showing incorrect water level and this can also stop the heater from coming on.
  5. On the printed circuit board there is a relay that controls the heater element these can become faulty.
