It's repairable but check the thermostats on top of the heater first.
check with a multimeter set on ohms this reads through the thermostat to confirm there is a current path intact. The reading when you check each thermostat should read low ohms if it reads high or infinity the thermostat is open circuit.

To reset the stat push a sewing needle into the hole at the centre of the stat until you hear a click.
