Good afternoon. My name is ***** ***** I'll be assisting you with your oven today. The 2 things that can cut out the display are the display board itself and the thermal cut out fuse mounted to the top of the oven below the cooktop. you'd need to remove all the cooktop burners and screws going through the burner bases and remove the entire top in order to access the thermal cut out. Test continuity through this part and if it does not have continuity, replace it. If it does have continuity, then you need to replace the display board. Based on what you said about the display board showing a number 2 and then you reset the breaker and it went dark, it doesn't sound like the fuse went bad---it sounds like your display board just failed but that would be my best guess without testing the fuse. Either way, below is a link to both parts.

Hello again. I'm just following up because I haven't heard back from you and I see this question is still open and unrated. Is there anything else I can help you with?
