sometimes the control board will short out and not let the fan or cook top light work.
if you want to try and remove the control board, look on the back of the board for any burnt off tracers. those are the wiring connections on the board that move power from a wire to a relay.
it is usually easy to see the burnt out piece, and if you can solder a new wire across where the burnt out part is, then it should work ok again.
if you cant solder, then a new control board will cost about 125-150 bucks.
