Jon : If power is ok and fuse is ok too then the next step is to check the main cut off fuse in theback of the oven.
Jon : there is a fuse or thermostat that acts as a fuse, usually located intheback of the machine, that will act as a fuse on your main panel box.
Jon : if there is any kind of surge or power interruption Thenthat fuse will usually go first.
Jon : And to check it youhave to do so with a meter. Set meter to continuity and make sure the machine is powered off or unplugged and pull the two wires fromthe fuse and put the meter leads onthe tstat and check the continuity of the fuse.
Jon : if there is continuity thenthe fuse is good. If not, then it needs to be replaced.
Jon : now if the tstat is good and oven control will not evenlight up or works tall thenyou would next have to check the wiring and the control board. If the wiring looks good and not damaged at all then you have a bad control board.
