Ayuh,.... Yer a Hvac guy,..??

I'd check the heating unit with a multimeter...
Turn it on, is it gettin' Power,..??
Does it ohm out correctly,..??

It's nothin' but a water heater element, anyways....

I see where the wires connect to the heating element, and its reading 120v which tells me that its an open circut I guess

Only one heating element?

I say just go buy a new element and change it out, see if the new one works, cant cost that much. You've already got a hot tub sitting there, might as well.
