There is some thermostats that if bad, will prevent the heater from working. If you access the heater, you have 2 wires coming to it. Unplug both wires from the heater, and make sure they are not touching metal. Then test for power to each wire. Each wire should show 120 VAC. If not, trace the dead wire until you find the voltage. Then you have located the bad part in the unit.

I tested for voltage as you said. Took the red and blue wire off the heater element....reading 120 V off each wire when turned on. I know the heater element is good. I know all three thermostats ohm good and even when as far as jumping across all of them did not produce heat. .

Ok, then you are either dropping ground, or the element is bad, but testing good. If the voltage is there, it should heat.

It needs 240 VAC to heat and an extension cord is 120 VAC. It is not going to heat with 120 VAC, but it will run.
