After replacing the resister I still had no heat. Some recommendations were just to replace the entire circuit board. I decided I would save a little money and buy 2 of the mosfet that might be the issue. $0.88/ea plus a small fee for shipping. I replaced it and boom I had heat again!!!! I was so excited. This was a very cheap fix, and now I have a spare mosfet and resister if it ever happens again.
This is where the component on the board is that I had to replace. Keep in mind I had to de-solder 8 legs on the old one and re-solder the 8 legs on the new one. It was definitely tricky!
Here you can see the old mosfet sitting on a dime, see those 8 tiny legs? The also you can see the bulging resister I had to replace in the hot end. Its hard to see the cracks in it but they are there.
Once I got it up and running I reprinted the little snowflake vase I was trying to print from before.
Coming up next: I am finally going to finish the enclosure for my circuit board. seen here
it has a slot on top that I have been meaning to attach a fan too. Working on that for this weekend's project.
