    My convection fan was not working so I took the wires off the little module which the fan is connected to. Then touched the pins with 2 wires from a battery charger... saw smoke... Now nothing will start when plugged. Any advice? Steve

    Fuse is at bottom underside of control board...easiest to see and get at by removing two screws that mount it to stove.

    Use required safety practices by unplugging the electrical cord.

    A cheap volt meter costs a lot less than a new control board.

    Doesn't sound good. It may have been a pricey mishap. Hope the story ends on a higher note for you!

    Keep us posted.

    Open the RH side panel of the stove.

    With the stove unpluged, look under the lower edge of the control board.

    The fuse should reside in a little holder in that general vicinity.

    When the magic blue smoke escaped it took the fuse with it.

    With the stove unplugged, start looking for a fuse holder by tracing the power lines where they enter the stove, eventually you'll find it.

    Well, that Year and that Serial Number (WH19795), had a Current Sensing Relay and as far as I can determine no fuse.

    There was a wiring mod. to eliminate the CSR and it has been discussed in earlier thread here. Try "Searching" CSR...or maybe Current Sensing Relay.

    PM me your email and I'll email you the Owners Manual and Service Manual.

    Note:

    Serial Number: 19,912 - 31,037 - Had 3.5 Amp Fuse @ terminal block between #1 and #8, in a black plastic fuse holder.

    All after Serial Number: 31,038 w/ SSAC Board have 6 Amp Fuse @ lower bottom edge of Control Board.

    My stove is a 1990 model advantage 2. I can not get any power to it. Does anyone know where or if there is a fuse for this guy, and directions in bypassing the CSR (Current sensing relay) Thanks to all for all their help.

    if this is the old black and silver face board with the red buttons, there is no fuse...you may be SOL. I know not about bypassing the CSR. Good luck.
