I understand you are trying to the air vent cover off your Frigidaire microwave, model# PLMV169DC, so you are able to clean the grease from underneath the top cover. Please follow these instructions:
1. Disconnect power to the microwave oven at the circuit breaker panel or by unplugging.
2. Remove the louver mounting screws.
3. Pull the louver away from the unit.
4. Change the charcoal filter.
5. Carefully push the louver back into place and replace the screws removed in step 2.
I ask that you please follow up with a comment on the post, at your convenience, to advise if further troubleshooting is needed or if your appliances status has changed successfully. Hope this is helpful.

How old is the unit. normally there is a tech mini manual of one or more pages inside the control panel or you might look in the upper vent area. this wiring / schematic would list the wiring positions of the relays you mentioned.
When you initially unpackage the microwave oven it is already set up for RECIRCULATION mode (which is VENTLESS). However, since the unit recirculates air rather than exhausting it out through the wall or roof, it usually uses a couple of small charcoal filters behind the upper grille and mesh filters on the underside that have to be changed or cleaned periodically. These filters will accumulate grease and dirt over time and should be periodically checked in order to maintain proper ventilation and air flow. Information pertaining to the location and care of the filters is explained on Page 4 of your Owner's Manual.
NOTE: If you wish to convert to a VENTED system, the instructions are listed on Page 4 of the Installation Guide.
If you do not have either manual you can obtain copies at managemylife.com. Just type in your model number as "GMH3174XVB" and you will find the manuals listed in a .pdf (Adobe) format that can be printed or downloaded for FREE.
If you have any questions, please post back and let me know. I hope this helps you.
You most likely had a power surge and blew a fuse. First unplug the unit,then remove the top grill. There will either be one screw on top of the control pad or 2 on the left side. open the control panel and look for a fuse that has a ceramic center and replace it with a 20 amp one. You can find these at the hardware store
