      From the scan below it appears to me either thermostat is bad, the wiring to it has a short, or both.

      Do you all agree?

      Well, no. "Open Circuit" is not "A Short".

      What does open circuit mean then? Do you agree that the thermostat could still be at fault?

      Open circuit is the opposite of a short.

      Probably a bad thermostat. You can verify if the heater is open with an ohmmeter.
