Thank you. The control board is the only thing that would cause this issue. You will need to replace the board to fix this issue for sure. If you're handy, you can make the repair yourself. The board is held in place with a plastic tab and the wires are all plug and play type. You can get the part locally or by clicking hereWe work on the honor system here at Just Answers.
