I've been able to prove the board is at fault, by trying a different

Try getting it repaired (probably not by GE). The usual failure mode
is one of the output MOSFETs in the bridge circuit, which keeps the

fault to detect, nor to repair - any reasonable electronics person
should be able to sort it.
