first had to troubleshoot... used multimeter to check all switches, they were good.
then checked thermostats, good again.
then checked motor centrifugal switch.. good.
with multimeter i found continuity between heating coil leads and heater housing. coil had broken and welded itself to housing.
changed coil in short time with restring kit (which got here amazingly fast) and everything is great.
ps: PartsSelect got me the part super fast and it was what i needed. also at a great price. would order from them again.
added note: if i were to do this again i would order the porcelain insulators that insulate the leads to the coils, they were old and very fragile and i experienced some fragmentation.
thanks to PartsSelect
