Shorted console keypad is more likely

after looking for the part i cant help but wonder if something shorted out the board and damages the new one or hoping it was a component failure.  their is a resistor that is burnt leading me to believe that it is component failure.

Look for objects jamming the pump impeller and causing the high amping motor.
