The oven blacked out after the self clean cycle.

Replaced the thermal fuse that tested bad. No luck. I should have known from looking at the schematic because the panel should have still worked. Confirmed 120v power to the control panel plug. Found a short on the board @ location "C21" I think it use to be a capacitor before going to component heaven. So the board is bad. Are there any other components it would be smart to check before installing a new board ?

Thanks.

Gary

“My Rules”:
Rule #1) Don't ever use Self-Clean on any Oven.
Rule #2) If you're thinking about using Self-Clean, see rule #1.
Self-Clean uses nearly 1000F for 3 hours or more. Posted Image
That can wreak havoc on Electronic Controllers and Connections.

Talked about the self-clean feature in that last issue of our Newsletter, Appliantology ==> http://fixitnow.com/...down-the-house/

Subscribe so you get your very own personal issue each time it comes out ==> http://newsletter.appliantology.org/

As for fixing your range, yes, you done blowed the circuit board, which is one of the more innocuous common hazards associated with using the self-clean feature, see the linked newsletter article for more.
