There is small RESET button on top of thermostat-try that if that will not help immersion heater may need to be changed-or thermostat.

It maybe just that the element has gone? If the thermostat has a reset but as has already been suggested try pushing that, although some cheaper thermostats don't have this safety feature! It could also possibly be a loose connection where the wire enters at either side of the thermostat, so worth checking that they are still tight.
