If the fuse is blowing something is overloading it, try eliminating one thing at a time until it does't blow and you have found your problem

Cook top range hood....AC or DC powered?
Lights in bedroom....AC or DC powered?

AC stuff would be on a breaker.
DC stuff would be like an automobile fuse.

DC powered. I just cannot seem to find the shirt that keeps causing the fuse to blow.

I'm guessing you'll find a wire pinched under a wall!!! or in a cabinet. I'd look under the unit (maybe even drop the bottom enclosure {if it has one} on the cook top side) to see if a smashed/chewed/squished wire can be seen.

"Brand new 2017" and you are "disassembling"? It would be sitting back on the dealer's doorstep if it were mine if it were under warranty.

Is your cooktop part of a slide out? I had a similar issue with the lights. Every time I pulled my slide in it would blow a fuse. Turns out a wire under the slide out was bare and coming in contact with the metal and blowing a fuse.
