Some of the newer models have a thermal fuse which may be blown. It doesn't look like a normal fuse at all. It is similar to a transistor in looks and should have continuity from one end to the other. It will be tied in to the incoming power cord inside the heater, and may be covered with rubber coating within the wire. It will look different when you notice it. Sometimes its too far down inside where the heat causes it to blow prematurely. The purpose is to cut the power to the unit in case it overheats. You can get one at radio shack for less than a couple of bucks. The older models don't normally have one, but I would suggest you put one in it if that's the case.

Depending on handy you are, the power cords for heaters can be replaced, but may require soldering or other electrical and mechanical skills. You MUST replace the cord with one that has the same amperage and heat ratings.....that goes for the plug too.

On the top of the switch (inside the heater) there is a common connection.....even though it looks as if it is connected (electrically), it isn't electrically affected by the switch; it's just used as a post. It's just the place where the striped wire connects to the "common" point for the heater coils (they are in a parallel). Also, while you're in there you might want to put some electrical grease on the exposed conductors.....mine had quite a bit of corrosion (which was the reason for the failure). I had to replace 3 of the female connectors.

If it is a Ksd31 thermostat you need, you are in luck. I found what I needed for my model 5600/7 on ebay. The store Larksining sells the for as few as five/pkg in various temp. settings. I got 5 ea. in two temp settings for less than $11.00 USD with shipping from Hong Kong.
