Whead, We're having difficulty finding a wiring or parts diagrams using the model number you supplied.

However, if you have 240 VAC across the wires to the heater element, the heater circuit is in tact and operating properly.

You'll need to visually re check the heater element for possible cracks or breaks in the element.

You'll also need to check the thermistor resistance, you should have approximately 10 K ohms resistance across the terminals at room temperature, not an "open" or "closed" circuit.

If you continue to have an issue, please re post with a proper complete model number, so we can better assist you. Thanks
Thanks for allowing to assist you,
