Similar model compact heater will not "power up" after storage
I purchased a Honeywell SureSet HZ-341BW Ceramic Compact Heater during last winter (January). I stopped using it after the beginning of the Spring. The heater was placed in storage from June until now (3 full months). The heater was attempted to turned on, but would not. The power button was pressed, but nothing happened. Is there an internal reset button in the heater that needs to be reset?

See if there is a little brass-looking bulb on a wire (sensing bulb) inside that can be moved away from the heat. My other thought would be maybe there is supposed to be some insulation between the control unit and the heating element that was inadvertently discarded?
Your prob is their is a thermostatic solinode that is trigger the unit to go off--because it thinks itself as too hot and unsafe to be on--this trigger was defective or damaged by disuse and/or fatigue------give it a shake-- better yet, when cool and unplugged-vacuum or blow out with compressed air-with out disturbing integrity of workmanship on device--if that no worky--time for new one---thermostatic element is dirty, device being of differing Mghz than outlet, if fairly new device--amperage of outlet is too small for device to work properly. If it is a 240 volt or a 120 volt device and your attempiting to use the wrong voltage outlet--STOP USING THE DEVICE
Like most heaters, this Honeywell ceramic heater has a tip switch designed to turn the heater off if it falls over. Unfortunately, all you need to do is bump the heater and the switch can open. Sometimes the switch will stick and the heater won't come on even when it is upright—sticking during storage could easily happen, particularly if not stored upright. When the switch is stuck on my heater, when I try to tturn it on the yellow and green pilot lamps flash once but nothing happens. The solution is to rattle it, shake it, and invert it a few times to unsitck the switch. It always works for me. Something probably best done before you get frustrated to the point of shoving it through the floor. Also, if the heater was running when the switch sticks, be sure it cools down so the thermal switch has a chance to come back on.
the thermostat is a variable rotation type. turning it in one direction varies a gap on a set of contacts mounted on the inside of the front panel. take the heater apart by taking out the four screws in back. the front panel should come off and you'll see the thermostat contacts. rotate the knob and see what the contacts do. if they make up, your element might be shot.
