Hi and thank you for using Just Answer.
You can find an exploded view of your machine on --- partmaster.co.uk --- Enter the model number and click on which part of the machine you want to see. Per your problem, I don't believe there is a cut between the circuit board and the element. The amount of OHMs you stated, it looks as if the element is faulty. On the average, the element should OHM out between 10 to 25. Some say between 15 to 30. In either case, it should be replaced
If you have any questions, please ask. I wish you the best.
The resistance reading works out as about 2.1kW with UK mains supply which is reasonable for the machine spec. I am not getting any applied voltage at the heater which suggests the fault is not in the heater but in the supply wiring to it. Parts listed on various websites do include an overheat cutout for the model. I am hampered with physical access hence my question.
Thanks for jumping in but before your reply came in I had already traced the wires and removed the printed circuit board where I found a dry joint on the connection to the blade terminal serving the heater. Having soldered it and run on test the machine is back to normal service.
Sorry to say I do not rate the service since without other knowledge I could have spent money on an unnecessary heater without any result.
I suggest Gary ought to be given more training on electrical circuits and systems.
