The diode-looking parts sound like thermal fuses. Typical thermal fuses resemble a 22-caliber bullet with the pointed end colored differently from the body. If they have failed, an ohm meter or continuity meter will tell you. Yes, they are a safety feature which should be kept.

Try your local appliance parts/repair store. Take the old ones in to compare. You will also need some crimp-on connectors to attach them to the wire ends.

Marvin Quartz heater element


Very simple to install the replacement element. Insert one end of the element into the bottom receptacle on either side, press the element down (it's spring-loaded), then slide the top of the element into the center opening of the top receptacle, push to appropriate side (the side of receptacle, same as the bottom), then release. Then do the same with the other element (if both are out).
