Hello My name is Ian ~ I am not on the site constantly so please be patient whilst waiting for responses to you queries - if you switch it to manual operation is it still cold when the thermostat is turned up fully?
Customer: replied 1 year ago.
The 3078 only has manual operation - no timer.
Expert:  Dales-Electronic replied 1 year ago.
OK I have just spent the best part of an hour going through the information available ~ your problem is likely to be either that the element has failed, a thermal cut out or thermostat is not working or that one of the switches has burnt out. If you have a multimeter we could be sure, however, the only spare parts that I can find that are still available are the neon switches, so perhaps you could advise if you wish to proceed with the search?

I don't have a tool to open it up,and considering lack of available spares parts, ordering a new one, thanks.
