Frigidaire FRA296ST21 not turning on

It is hot in Mississippi!! I have a 14-month-old Frigidaire FRA296ST21 28,000 BTU window unit. Fantastic unit but last night, when temps were still 80+ outside, the unit quit. The green light was lit on the power cord, so my husband did the usual checks. We checked the circuit breakers, reset the fuse on the power cord, tried the remote to turn it on/off, unplug the front of the unit from the PC board, made sure the contacts were clean and replugged it. Still nothing. It does not power on. He's inexperienced with a multimeter, but after researching the internet, he tested the outlet, tested the end prongs of the power cord, and all was ok. We are figuring it is the control board/power board, but dont want to spend that money if there is any other troubleshooting we need to see about first. Someone suggested we check to see if it blew a fuse, but I see no fuses on any of the diagrams. Any suggestions prior to ordering these parts would be appreciated!
