    If I'm not mistaken, that green component was a MOV (metal oxide varistor) it did what it was supposed to, sacrificed itself...
    Check ipdb for a manual.

    Consider a panel surge protector. It takes up two spots on your circuit board, but protects everything in the house in the event this happens again. Surge protector strips are still recommended as extra protection

    You had one of these? It goes at the top of your electrical panel and absorbs any power spike. It acts a lot like the varistor in that pinball did, except for your whole house
