Different things are possible but you need to do "or have done" some trouble shooting first to know for sure. The first place I would want to check is to see
whether or not the glowbar ignitor is lighting up first. Its the more common
item to have problems with.

I don't see the glow bar lighting, and the thermal breaker is ok...

Additional electrical testing would have to be done to be 100% certain.
But the ignitor is the most common cause of this. A close inspection might
reveal a physical break in it.
