This Dacor model is very similar to Sharp model R1874.

We have the applicable service manuals for these models and have uploaded it to our site here and here to help you.

You will need the
free Adobe Reader to view or print them.

This is probably a bad secondary interlock (lower door switch) or possibly its mount is loose or broken.

Door switch or mount trouble is usually caused by slamming the door or by opening the door while it's cooking without hitting the Stop pad first.

There are plastic mounts inside the microwave which hold the door switches and onto which the door latches lock when you close the door.

The screws on these mounts may be loose. If they get too loose, the switches will not be activated properly.

Sometimes it's a broken tab on the switch holder, allowing the switch to rotate just out of position. This tab can be hard to see, since it is under the bottom edge of the switch.

If you only need a switch, you can order a universal type here for $5 postpaid.

Turntable will not rotate and food will not heat up.


If it is not cooking and the turntable will not turn, this sounds like the secondary interlock switch is bad. Almost always this failure is caused by opening the door when it is in a cook cycle. Pushing the stop button before you open the door will prevent this in the future..

I tried cooking with the convection function in my dacor DCM24 microwave. now the microwave function will not work. the fan comes on, but the turntable doesn't move and there is no heat.


This is almost certainly a bad secondary interlock (bottom door switch) or its mount.

See my help file on door switches here.

Microwave does not heat. The light goes on, the turntable turns, it makes a sound and beeps when done. It just doesn't heat.

Dacor dcm24s.light, fan, and control panel work but turntable and heat do not


Most likely the bottom door switch. Dacor units are built by Sharp and that switch is a very common problem. You'd either need to check the switch with an ohm meter or remove the cover of the switch to see if it's burned inside.
