Default Heated Floor (electric) not working

My house has a heated floor in the master bath
It does not appear to be heating any more although the light on the wall
thermostat is on.
Any experience with these?

Hi,

Heat Elements are notorious for burning the wire up at the connection
terminal. If you can access the actual heat element that is where you need to
start. I have never heard of a heated indoor floor before. LOL.
What is it supposed to do, keep your feet warm while you sit on the toilet?

Plenty of applications, including basement floor.

No judgement here, just reporting the facts, ma'am.

some friends of ours have it in the bathroom. the ceramic floor heats up.
since ceramic is usually cold, I guess it's a nice thing to have. I wouldn't
know, I wear slippers.

It could be a connection came loose. It could also be the contacts in
the thermostat. Turn off the power, pull the thermostat and use an ohm
meter or continuity checker to see if the heating element in the floor has
any breaks in it. If it doesn't then you probably have a bad thermostat.
