Need help with DACOR Microwave model PCOR30S, w/the minute timer
Recently my 1.5 year old DACOR microwave stopped working correctly.
The problem is that the cooking timer stops at 1 second remaining instead of completing the time and beeping at the end.
I have tried all the help menu options, and unplugged the unit for 10 mins hoping that would reset it, but to no avail.

I had the same problem and was able to fix it thanks to the above post. My damper motor is no longer turning and was not able to turn the flap open until the swich stops it. On my Dacor PCOR30S, you need to remover the black top cover and after another plate located in the back right side of the oven. This will give you access to the magnetron, capacitor and high voltage transformer. Be sure that the power is off and the capacitor is discharged before sticking your hand in there!. The damper mechanism is a bit different than the above picture but close enough to recognize it. My motor doesn't turn and after opening it, it seems like the permanent magnet ring inside is stuck. I'll order a new motor.

The above manuals will not have Sharp part numbers, not the Dacor part numbers, but they should work, and you can order them from the Sears Parts Direct site. But if you're leery or unsure, you can look up the Dacor part numbers in the part list here, then order by part number from the Pros here.

The surge probably didn't cause this.
This common error indicates a problem in the convection damper circuit.
It may be a defective damper switch, damper motor, or a jammed damper door.
I have attached a drawing of a typical damper system.
