Definitely sounds like its dead, if the light is on but no one is home then time to buy a new one.

What brand is this heater?
How many watts?

Time to replace it.

Lupin is correct!!! Time for a new heater. Get a good one it worth the investment. If the old one sticks in the high position you will boil you fish!
