Chances are you have a bad high voltage parts, such as the high voltage rectifier diode, a bad magnetron, a loose connection at the magnetron, or less likely, a bad high voltage transformer.

Here are some links you or someone you know can use (in order given) for test help, but read the safety warnings first:

I have the Dacor DCM24 microwave and if the table does not spin will the microwave still cook food. I think my turn motor is bad, but wanted to know if I could cook food without it?


Yes! it will continue to cook food, the only difference you may end up with cold spots in the food, rotate plate once or twice to reduce this.

The motor will not work. The interior light comes on, but the turntable does not go around. The cook time counts down, but no cooking occurs.


the turn table motor could have failed, but the counting down will be the monitor switch or a micro switch located behind control panel

Does not cook food. the microwave oven appears to be working but it doesn't cook the food. Turn-table works, timer works, the light in the oven is on but my food does not cook, defrost or warmed up.


In all likelihood the mangnetron is failing, or perhaps even the Power Supply is faulty. You need to have it serviced by a reputable service centre/man.
Ensure you get a firm "Quote" before proceeding, and remember these days the cost of repair can equal or exceed the price of a new one

Little plastic ring with wheels broke in several places


the purpose of the turntable is to more evenly cook the food. it shouldnt effect the mics ability to cook, just might take a little longer to thoroughly cook food

When we first turn on the microwave there is like a mini-explosion and a fiery spark, but after that the microwave goes through its cycle and cooks the food. But we are afraid to try it again.


pls do not use any aluminum or metal material INSIDE the microwave, this can cause the problem

I assumed, but pls consider the ff info...

Be sure to use nonmetal utensils in the microwave.

For microwave cooking, cut meats and vegetables in uniform sizes to make sure that they cook evenly.

Paper plates, cups, and napkins can be used in the microwave. But don't use foil-lined paper products, paper towels that include nylon or synthetic fibers, or newspaper.
When using plastic roasting or cooking bags in the microwave, discard the wire twist tie and use a plastic fastener or a piece of string instead.

To ensure that food cooks fully and evenly in the microwave oven, stir food and turn dishes periodically while they're cooking.

I have a JVM1603BJ03 space saver micro wave. The turn table cracked in two, the plastic support device to turn the glass table has desenigrated into several small pieces. It appears the micro wave is...


Do you cook a lot of popcorn?

Do you place your food items in the center of the turntable as opposed to placing them off-center?

Both can cause repeated heating of the same spot on the turntable, which can stress it and allow it to crack.

You can buy replacement parts here.

I suggest that when you cook popcorn, place a paper plate or two upside-down under the bag and always place your food items off-center on the turntable tray.

Once you have the new parts, I would suggest at least a quick heat test. That is to heat one cup of water on high and it should boil in about 2 to 2-1/2 minutes.

If you would like to perform a more standard heat test, please see my Ask Mr. Microwave page.

If your magnetron is indeed running too hot, then it is probably dying. Sometimes - like a star - they can burn hotter right before they die.

MMV5000 cavity light off when is pressed...


The wiring diagram indicates that there is a cavity lamp switch on this model. It should be under the control panel or somewhere else on the underside of the oven. The noise you describe could indicate trouble with the fan or the magnetron, etc. If you could describe it in more detail we may be able to offer more advice.
