We knew there was power going to unit, tested electrical wall switch. My husband temporarily "bypassed" fuse and everything lit up. From other user's comments, took a stab that Fuse Kit might be the problem. Piece arrived within 3 days! The unit fired up, worked successfully 3 times and QUIT AGAIN! Having read something about the heating element causing problems, taking a desperate leap of faith the day before Thanksgiving cleanup, we temporarily put an auto parts fuse in for the moment, DO NOT USE HEAT DRY and it continues to work fine. For as much as this unit costs, with the heat-dry element feature as an option, a little disturbing not being able to use it or the fuse blows. We will order another thermal Fuse Kit in the near future and reinstall it. As for potential problems with the stove, fridge or D/W again, (all KitchenAid) this is my first place to check for parts. Thank you. Good Luck to all you trouble shooting DIY-ers!!!
