@ JWWebster & Repair-man
I passed through a few more posts, and that info was included.
(I'm cruising through this forum page by page, vicariously experiencing other's problems and increasing my own experience at the same time)
One person mentioned installing a 500 mA fuse to prevent this. sounds good!
Any quick answer to how to know what the specs on that fuse should be?
As an aside, I can see that both of you have been around. I also get quite a bit out of Tech Brian's posts. Not to mention Icehouse, AJ, Whirlpool, OldStoveGuy.....
