Angry electric baseboard heat problems

I have just tried to turn on my electric baseboard heat for the year. I have a thermostat in every room and only one is coming on. ( in the utility room ) like I need that one right now, lol!! We have checked the breaker box and everything is on and getting juice. What can be wrong???? HELP!!!!

Not too much can go wrong with electric baseboard. I would check the following with a meter:

1.) Power at thermostat
2.) Check all connections
3.) Power at heating element
4.) Resistance check of heating element

If you are uncomfortable working around electricity, the job is best left to someone who is.
