Kitchen aid completely dead
« on: February 27, 2013, 08:25:37 PM »

This is a stainless Steele unit that has absolutely no power at the control board. I went and checked it out it has power going to I. And when I checked the thermal fuse On the control board It had no continuity. W10258275 so I'm gonna replace the part. Any other suggestions I might have overlooked?

Just make sure to follow the instructions and replace the two leads that are included with the new thermal fuse.

They send new wire connections because the old ones could be creating a bad connection and making the thermal fuse blow.
Install the new wire connectors that are in the kit with the new thermal fuse and you won't have any more problems with the thermal fuse.
