Dead - Confused!

Hi Guys....

I have to old MS units which I have had sitting around as spares for quite a while.
As far as I am aware they just needed replacement elements.

I ordered replacements (both sides for both units) and fitted.

Both units are still dead.

I have tested the thermal fuse, measured the elements, tested cable, plug, etc. and at a complete lose.
I suspect the only thing left is the pcb however im more inclined to think there is something else or something I have stupidly done as find it hard to believe BOTH have faulty pcb when they were both working previously until elements were broken.

Original MS stylers with only S/S pcb.

Is there anything else I can try/test?

Is there a way to test and confirm pcb failure without having a known working pcb?

Thanks in advance!

The elements now measure about 80ohms when both connected?

Not really. Generally if all else is good, then it must be the pcb.
