Monogramman you have described where your issue is. When you dismount the front panel you are moving the wires. If I was looking at your unit and you told me that it worked with the panel removed, I would look at the wiring between the front panel and the relay board for a loose connection. You should be able to pull the connectors ( remember to shut off the power for safety) and put a flash light on the backside of the connector. Look thru the front an you should see very little light. If you see a lot of light there is your loose connection. Or if you are careful, you can wiggle the connectors until you get to one that is causing the clicking. Hope this helps. I doubt if it is the oven thermistor as the oven heats while the front panel is dropped down.

yes the oven thermal fuse blew when the fan went off its also called a tco switch if you pull out the oven and take the top off there will be a tech sheet there that will give the location of the tco some are on top some are on back this can also happen if the oven is too tight in the cabinet not enough room around it to let the heat dissipate its a round metal disc with two wires on it

It may be that your high voltage diode or capacitor has shorted.
The fuse is usually located behind the grille, on the floor of the oven behind the control panel, between the door switches, or on the filter board near where the cord comes into the unit.
There should be a "mini-manual" (tech sheet) hidden inside the unit behind the control panel or hidden on the left side behind the grille, which is very helpful when troubleshooting, testing, and locating components.
At our Web site, we have a video available showing how to remove a typical over the range control panel assembly in under 5 minutes.
You can usually find helpful exploded view diagrams and order parts by entering your full model number here.
Here are some links you or someone you know can use (in order given) for test help, but read the safety warnings first:
(if it is NOT shorted, it's probably fine)
(continuity can be good even though it is bad!)
To check the high voltage parts, you'll have to remove it from the wall, then remove the outer cover. If so, the installation instructions are very handy, and it's best to have two people since the microwave can be heavy and awkward.

HI, no need to replace the unit at this time. this is a Open or shorted oven temperature sensor (RTD).
Check sensor harness and harness connection between oven sensor and oven control. Replace oven temperature sensor (RTD) if wiring is ok.
