Here's how it turned out. Thermostat isn't the issue. I replaced it today with soaring hopes, plugged it in, and CLICK! exact same noise and lack of action as before.
I have no idea what to do next and am getting frustrated.............tossing a hand grenade into this thing is next.
Reputable appliance guys can get here by Saturday....jeez thanks. Either I fix it, or I go to Lowe's and drop some major coin....which I really shouldn't do.
Can anyone help? PLEASE.
