    lol, did you not test the element before swapping it out? often the thermostat has a little button on it, just get a fluke and test if its getting continuity through it, but to be honest on a lot of these appliances its usually an elecrtonic fault - and you wont fault find it
    try the thermostat first tho - and the element fuse, if it had gone maybe popped the fuse as well

    Will the element fuse be near the element?
