Repair was not completed. After troubleshooting all other possibilities for unit not starting the only component left was the control board. Upon replacement problem was not fixed. while doing other inspections found two conductors on the ribbon that connects the control panel to the control board broken.
Please before ordering a control board for a "wont start" condition check the ribbon conductors for a broken circuit. Place a small flashlight beam behind the ribbon to better highlight any breaks.
This ribbon is fragile so be gentle in handling it during the inspection. There should not be any gaps in the "lines" that are actually like wires that complete the connection.
