If it isn't heating then it's likely not working.
What wattage, what size tank and what temperature is the room?
Those heaters fail on a regular basis, over the years the ones that lasted me the longest were the ebo-jager and the rena-cal ones.

The elites ones usually get stuck in the "on" position and boil the tank. Usually after a water change where someone forgot to unplug it, exposing the tube to air. Having the light on but no heat is a first for me.. but I am not surprised at all to see one fail.

In any case you can check the reviews section for suggestion on a replacement. Just make sure to stay clear of the stealth ones.
