Question about Dacor PCOR30 Convection/Microwave Oven

1 Answer

Sharp R530EK Nov 7th repair was made. Microwave counts down but no fan or heat comes on. Could hold in corner of push button slightly to make it work a few minutes. But now won't work at all, but still counts down cook time.

This is usually caused by either a bad door switch or a loose door switch mount, which are pretty simple problems to fix.

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.

One test that sometimes helps is to gently lift up (and/or push down) on the door or handle as you try to start it. If it works or tries to work, then it's a door switch mount or door alignment issue.

We have the service manual for this model and have uploaded it to our site here to help you.

You will need the
free Acrobat Reader to view or print it in case you don't have it.

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

Otherwise, the best place to order parts for this brand is Encompass (formerly Tritronics).

Sharp Carousel R530BK microwave won't cook unless light pressure is kept on the door button.


There are door switches and one of them is evidently out of adjustment or the little actuator arm on it is.

Sharp R-930CS microwave turntable stopped turning and neither convection or microwave are working (ie. not heating). Lights and fan turn on and counter counts down normally.


Look inside for one of many thermal cutouts (button type) test each for continuity (with the unit unplugged of course). Also look for burned wires and repair or replace them. If you get it running and it works fine... we're done. If it still acts up then replace the magnetron and or the capacitor.

Won't heat


I have narrowed the problem down to the door, but I have not yet repaired it nor do I know how. If I hold the door after closing, and hit start it will begin the heat process, but when I let go of the door it stops.

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.

No Heat


This is probably due to a bad door switch, most likely the top one. The microwave got hot because the cooling fan was not running. If you or a friend decide to work on it, we have *critical* safety, disassembly, and troubleshooting info (as well as a text file which helps in diagnosing and repairing door switch problems) at our site, which is linked at our listing here on FixYa: http://tinyurl.com/yzjozk You can find helpful exploded view diagrams and order parts by entering your model number here: http://www3.sears.com/

Every thing seem to be working, but the fan don't come on.


Quite often this is due to a bad door switch. Opening the door while cooking (without first hitting the STOP pad) is the primary cause of door switch failure. I have a text file called "doorsw.txt" which helps in diagnosing and repairing door switch problems, and a critical file called "safety.txt" which is of vital importance. These are at our site, which is linked at our listing here on FixYa: http://tinyurl.com/yzjozk You can order parts for Sharp models from Tritronics at http://www.wehaveparts.com.
