I disconnected the fuse and it checks ok(very low resistance). I found two items I think are thermostats. They are round, between the size of a dime and a nickel, and have two connections on one side. the other side is mounted flat against a metal plate. I disconnected both to check them. One checks very low resistance while the other checks extremely high resistance. So the bad one is the one with high resistance, right? And where is the best place to buy a replacement? Thank you.
