noticed small canister looking thing on the left side of the back of range that looked burned. It had a rod attached, which I unhooked and now I can't see where the other end of the rod goes so I can't put it back on.

I was planning to go get the thermo fuse replacement and see if that fixes the oven. Now I don't know what to do about reconnecting the rod part

My name is Woody.
I`m sorry to hear that your having issues!
I will do my best to take the information that you provide to me and make a Diagnosis for you to be able to repair your own Appliance.

The thermal fuse on this model will ONLY effect the Broil and Convection heating elements operation it does not have any effect on the Bake cycle .

The long rod attaches to the self clean latch assembly in the rear of the unit ,and the door latch in the front of the oven .

This parts break down may help you find where the rod attaches.

http://www.partadvantage.com/diagram/3/16/00000034/680/900

The rod is item #5 the self clean latch it item #6

As for the oven not heating have you tested for voltage to either the Bake or Broil heating elements?
