Here are the breakdown diagrams and Replacement parts for WHIRLPOOL IH8432RS1 |

Per the wiring diagram, I located the power from the control board (P14 & P15). The two transformers are fed from this single point of contact. Voltage is present. Power is going to the transformers. From the step-down side (12v) there is nothing. This would suggest both transformers failed simultaneously? The light switch relay on the board gets very hot (just for info)
