Ceramic Tower heater stopped working?

My daughter's Noma Model 043-5118-0/NTH-15-17BRA OSCILLATING CERAMIC TOWER/BASEBOARD HEATER WITH FAN. (Longest model info I've ever seen!) has stopped working while in use.
Have tried different, working outlet. Breaker had not tripped.

Can't find a manual.
No reaction at all when plugged in or any buttons pressed.
Is there an on-board breaker I can get at?

All suggestions welcome.

That is a NTH15-17BRA and probably from Midea or even Pelonis.
The pdf manual link at the bottom is from Pelonis but the manuals are pretty much identical.

There is a thermal overheat safety device inside the heater that will blow open if the heater overheats. That problem usually occurs when something coves the heater during operation. It's basically not user serviceable but I do replace them and several members have also done so. If you're mechanically handy it's not too difficult.
