Just started happening, the vent fan won't shut off, we have tried cycling through the touch pad settings, unplugging the unit, opening/closing the door, standing on our heads, etc, but the fan won't shut off.

I had the same problem with the fan not wanting to shut off after the repair. Once I set the clock though I was able to push the button to shut the fan off. So try setting your clock first and see if that helps.
So the fan motor's 21VAC winding is working. That's good.
But either the fan blade is loose on the shaft (a super glue fix) or the fan motor itself had failed.
You can find
helpful exploded view diagrams and order parts by entering your full
model number from the tag on the oven here.
The fan motor is shown on the diagram there as reference # 78, part # AP3192806, located behind the control panel and adjacent to the magnetron.
I'm not sure you have to pull the oven from the wall to replace it, but if you do, the oven installation (& removal) instructions are included on the tech sheet inside the unit.
should be a "mini-manual" (tech sheet) hidden inside the unit
control panel, and it is very helpful when troubleshooting, testing, and locating
components. You can
also download GE
owner's manuals and installation instructions here.
If you don't find yours I can send you a copy, or if you need more help, feel free to contact me directly (and please remind me of your
full model number from the tag on the unit).
happy to help you with free advice and we'd appreciate your

From the owner's manual under OPERATION "VENT FAN":
"If the temperature from the range or cooktop below the oven gets too hot, the vent fan in the vent hood will automatically turn on at the 4-Speed setting to protect the oven. When this occurs, the VENT ON/OFF pad will not turn the fan off."
You should check your "vent fan auto time set" setting.
Here's one thing to try to set it to turn off after 10 minutes:
Touch the Vent ON/OFF pad, then touch the "5-SPEED VENT" pad until "level 4" appears in the display, then touch "AUTO TIME SET" the desired number of times.

The lights do get very hot, so they must be a sufficient distance from the lens.
Was there an instruction sheet with the new lens?
You may need to adjust the sockets upward.
You might call a local GE-authorized servicer to see.
Concerning the vent fan, this is a problem with the control panel assembly, which we repair nationwide for $39.95.
