Hi thanks, ***** ***** are sure the wires to the thermistor are ok, then unfortunately during the repair the main board had a failure.
What likely happened is not your fault. Let me explain.
Electronics are live even when these things are turned off, there is always power to the power supply section of the board so its warm to hot. Once you unplug it after its been powered for so long everything cools down and that's where the trouble begins. The tiny varnish coated wires in the transformers etc are now weak and frail. SO when they cool they break, and cause trouble like this.
You can fix this by replacing the main board.

If you call today they will ship today ;-)
I would call to order this board, be sure to tell them you need a board with a pre programmed PROM IC!
Otherwise you may get one that needs programming and that will cost more as you would need a tech to come do that for you;-)
In any case, I will stick with you until this is complete.
