The JVM series had issues with the triac on the Smart board. Check the board carefully for signs of loose solder joints around the power triac. If the HV transformer is not getting 120 volts on the primary side then the board is bad.

There's a mini-manual inside the control panel. If the transformer is not kicking in, the board is likely the problem.
