I found a fuse in the upper right rear that is connect to the power source. on the board it is labeled Special Fuse F1. On the fuse itself it is very hard to read but I believe it says 250 V 20 A ?

Just found my fuse tester .... the fuse shows good.
Expert:  Bryan replied 5 years ago.
ok is there any lights at all when you plug this in? is the plug where you plug it in alright and has power? there is also usually a thermal overload in these but I'll have to research to see. I'll get back to you soon. thanks Bryan
