Hi, I'm Robert. Welcome to JustAnswer. I'm reviewing your question now and will post back with your reply momentarily.

Normally you will have a brown wire with a clear plastic shield over it that is the high limit or thermal cut off, when that blows it cuts power to the board, it will be connected to the board. What you can do for testing ONLY is bypass it and see if the water heater starts to spark and lights off. It is a one time fuse when it blows it has to be replaced. IF you have a volt meter you can also check continuity through it. IF you are not seeing that OR that does not work bypassing please respond back with the full model number of the Atwood....
