I should have know it was the fuse from the beginning but I figured this out after replacing the the heating coil. (I didn't have the tools to test the wiring, and everyone kept telling me it was the heating coil.)

Anywho, I replaced the thermostat first then the fuse. They were located on the outside cabinet of the heating coil. I plugged it up and then there was heat. They did look a little different from the original ones but you could tell which was which. The fuse is at the top and the thermostat at the bottom. I didint have to use the new wiring to the fuse because they looked fine. I did however had to use the wiring that came with the kit for the thermostat because the old one was fried and a little different from the original.

Well that's my story. Sorry if there's any lackness in the details.
