Blown Circuit Identification Answered

Picture of

So I am trying to repair an old hair straightener so that I can use it for some project on another. Part of the circuit blew. I think it was a diode but am not 100% percent sure. If someone could let me know what the part is so that I can possibility replace it.

Nasty, yes it's a fat diode (or was).

Can you elucidate a circuit diagram and pick a part number off the heat-sunk semiconductor package?
