Quadra Fire Classic Bay 1200i no blue light and shorted out issue--
Original problem was the convection blower was not coming on. So, I unplugged stove, disconnected the two purple wires running to Snap Disk #1 for convection blower, connected them together with a paper clip, plugged stove back in and restarted it and viola, convection blower came on right away. So, I concluded that snap disk #1 was defective. However, the hot wired purple wires touched the left panel door and shorted out the stove, a very stupid mistake. I checked the fuse and it looked okay but when stove was reconnected and turned on there was zero response, and no blue light and no fan. A few questions: 1) Could snap disc #3 just be tripped, and if so where is it exactly and how does one reset it and/or test it after locating it? 2) Of, if snap disc #3 is not the issue, I suppose the control panel is fried? If it is, how difficult is it to replace a control panel on this unit for an inexperienced person?
Thanks very much in advance for help.
