Welcome to Just Answer, my name is ***** ***** I will do my best to help you with your issue. If my initial response doesn’t answer your question then let me know and we can continue our conversation.The fuse link (see attached pic for typical) on most models is down near the burners, just outside the burner chamber. You'll need to replace it if that's the problem. You can determine if it is (and not just a bad connection) by connecting the 2 leads on the device together. If you don't have a suitable jumper you can try inserting a paper clip or a piece of wire into the the connectors to connect them. The connection fit should be pretty tight. Turn off the power to the unit before you try this then turn it back on once you've made the connection. If the unit fires up when you turn the power back on then you need a new fuse link. You must not operate the unit with this device bypassed. The above is for testing only.
