Question about GE JVM1790SK Convection/Microwave Oven
WHEN THE DOOR IS CLOSED THE MICROWAVE DOESN'T OPERATE BUT WHEN YOU OPEN THE DOOR THE FAN INSIDE THE OVEN CONTINUOUSLY RUNS. I TRIED TO SET THE OVEN TO WORK AND IT JUST TICKS LIKE A CAR WITH A DEAD BATTERY AND DOES NOTHING...OPEN THE DOOR AND THE INSIDE FAN JUST BLOWS. I LOVE MY OVEN BUT CAN'T AFFORD A NEW ONE (JUST FINISHED PAYING FOR THIS ONE)
Pretty sure its the door interlock switches.
you might need a service call from the authorized rep.... sorry.

Looking at the schematic in the service manual here, I would say relay RY6 on the small sub PCB (relay board) has shorted contacts.
That's the relay that runs both the fan and turntable.
It's possible that it may be a bad connection or driving component on that board, but in my experience, it's virtually always a stuck relay.
The part number on the relay as shown in the photo is hard to read, but it looks like "OJ-SH-112LM".
I should have one of these or I can point you to one if you want to contact me with the exact number.
Feel free to contact me directly (and please remind me of your full model number) for more information & help.
We're happy to help you with free advice and we'd appreciate your thoughtful rating of our answer.

If the fuse isn't the problem, check the door hooks and the door-release button. When these are broken, the door switch doesn't activate, so the oven can't work. You should check the internal door switches, the high voltage circuitry and the circuit board for this kind of problems. But for that you will need a certified technician to help you make these repairs.
