Have unit out, top shield off exposing the wiring behind the control panel. Find no fuse as you describe. Best guess is that a part numbered(NNN) NNN-NNNN with lettering FSP is it. Keep in mind that I am not positive the model number I gave is correct (the manuals are for six different units).
Have taken digital photos of the exposed back of control panel and wiring, and the -767 part. Sending this first, then will try to send the digital photos.
Have sent the photos. The red, white, black wires first connect to what is likely a set of fuses, on a small circuit board, with three red parts, two with the diameter of a dime and 1/4 thick, , the third with the diameter of a nickel and 1/8th inch thick. mounted on top of the circuit board. Number on the back of the circuit board is(NNN) NNN-NNNNRev B; on front or top are(NNN) NNN-NNNNon the right side, and(NNN) NNN-NNNNand -85 on the left, with an "x" marked manually next to the -85 number. Where the black wire connects is visibly burnt. Ssurely seems this part needs to be replaced.

Had to take the rail off, as the top door, which won't open, hid it.
The diode-like device, about 2 1/2 inches long and covered with clear plastic, all crimped in, not able to check with ohmmeter...at least so far. Cant see any part number, but it is connected to a white wire plugged into a multi-ire connector on the back of the right side of the control panel, behind the "Start" button. Have read that it kills everything if bad; doesn't look burnt or fouled but I am no expert.
Seems to be best to order all three parts: the thermal disc or fuse in the back, the suppressor, and the thermal ("diode") fuse unless the suppressor is super expensive...not nuts about pulling the double oven out too often.
Can I by-pass the thermal "diaode" fuse for testing purposes? Any suggestions on where to order with expedited shipping. Thanks so much.. No doubt will pay up at the next level up.
Live in the boonies, and from all I have read dealing with KitchenAid 800 number sorts might be frustrating, and our unit was first installed in 2002 and was replaced in 2003 at no cost, but still 7 years ago.
. So ordered all three parts (suppressor(NNN) NNN-NNNN AP(NNN) NNN-NNNN themal fuse at control panel AP3777386/(NNN) NNN-NNNN and themal fuse or disc on back of top oven ap(NNN) NNN-NNNNreplacing(NNN) NNN-NNNNnow(NNN) NNN-NNNN from Appliance Parts Pros....seems like a solid outfit, will see. Site had pictures of each part and am sure they are the correct ones.
If this fails, will get back to you, and thanks. XXXXX will be prompted on the payment issue.
