- reading schematic diagrams
- strategic selection of your reference voltage 
- doing live testing (appliance plugged in and running) vs. Ohms testing
- using a loading meter to test AC line voltages
- troubleshooting from the control board to eliminate unnecessary disassembly

Interesting that the motor has 2 centrifugal switches.

So I guess it's possible that, one of them closes and the board "thinks" everything is fine. But the second centrifugal switch for L2 is stuck open, and not providing power to the heating element?

Thank you.

Yes, very possible. All switches are subject to failure.
