I wouldn't worry about the skill level.
Bad things happen to good people.
I wanted to add that some sequencers work on a delay, some turn right on. If the strips are measuring 11 ohms then that should be good, I believe 10 is the norm but close enough.
The two things I take great respect in when operating or working around is chainsaws and high voltage. Sorry to sound like an arse but I feel you know enough about high voltage to be dangerous.
Hey if you are a certified tech then it sure doesn't sound like it, so I apologize if you are. But either case, you are messing around with incredibly dangerous voltage, if the strips aren't broken there could be a situation where the strips just don't have the resistance anymore to generate alot of heat, but I think the ohms would tell this, that i'm not 100% on.
Thing is, poking around sequencers and heat strips in a tight area with live power is a recipe for disaster unless you know what you are probing and understand electricity will jump, especially 240.
Just want you to be safe, I think you have checked out what you can and from this point on get a HVAC tech to further poke around inside the handler.
Edited to add..........
And I posted this after your last response so at least that answers one of my questions.
You never stated your profession so you have to expect to somewhat of an earful.
