Whirlpool wall oven RBS245PDS17 stopped working aft. self clean

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 ?

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.
That can wreak havoc on Electronic Controllers and Connections.

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.
