On your unit there is a thermal fuse that disrupts power due to a power spike, over amping heater or just age, the thermal fuse is located in the console clipped to the top of the control board, it's light in color and has 2 black wires going to it. the replacement part number is 8193762 the part runs about $20 or so in cost. good luck hope this helps

Hello, welcome to FixYa.
Based on your description and the model being a KitchenAid, there is indeed an internal "fuse" or as Whirlpool refers to it, "thermal fuse" or "bimetal". I'd suggest you likely have a faulty thermal fuse in the control board, but it is not resettable unfortunately. (these are made by Whirlpool)
It's pretty easy to replace or to check, I've attached a link below to change the fuse, but you can also use the link to access the thermal fuse to check it.
With the aid of an ohm meter, (**and the electricity off...safety first**) remove one wire and measure across the two contacts and it should show continuity, otherwise it's open and therefore no good.
The part is available at most brick & mortar part places or on-line at vendors such as "repairclinic.com" or searspartsdirect.com" to name a couple. Part number 8193762...looks like this image and retails for about $15-$20USD based on the model you provided.
This is the youtube link to help with the repair "how to".
Let me know how you make out or if you require any further assistance and I'll try to help in any manner I can. Good luck.
Thank you for choosing FixYa.
