I was replacing the bulb and didnt make sure the power was off. It sparked and has been dead since. It cooks fine and the light inside works. I checked for fuses behind the control panel and only found one. It was not blown. Is there another fuse somewhere I should check?

It may have taken out some parts on the Controller Board.

Look on both sides for burned spots.

Sears lists the board for $ 85   :(

Absolutely awesome help.

I pulled the board out and found a burned trace on the back side. I was able to repair the trace by soldering in a short jumper to replace the bad spot and upon re-assembly the lights and fan work great.

Very much appreciated.
