There is a overheat safety feature and it can usually be reset. Unplug the heater for 5 to 10 minutes and the plug it back in. If that doesn't solve the problem, there is an internal reset switch, but it's a little hard to find. You will have to remove the back cover, then look for a red button/switch that has 2 wires coming out of it, that go to the heating element. Press that, to reset the safety switch.
But, I must add, the other solution/answer you received ... that it may have burned up the heating element is certainly a reality. In any event, it's not safe to leave a space heater ON and unattended for any length of time. Particularly, since this one somehow slipped of the fireplace hearth while no one was at home. Just be glad the overheat safety switch worked as it should. Electric space heaters are one of the biggest causes of house fires in the U.S.
The fan motor is bad, it will give you a power light but nothing else. To be quite honest with you it is cheaper to replace the heater then to go thru the agrivation of replacing the fan motor. Sorry this is probably not the answer you were hoping for.
