I cannot find any info on the given model number, please check it.

I would check the power first.
Try flipping the breaker off/on slowly a couple times, sometimes you can loose half the line without actually tripping the breaker and the heating element requires the full 240 volts.
If this does nothing, check the voltage at the plug
L1 to L2 should be 240 volts
L1 to Neutral and L2 to Neutral, both should be 120 volts.
If OK
Unplug the unit and check the wires at the terminal strip in the machine to make sure none are loose or burned out
If OK
Check the power at the terminal strip.
