Question about Microwave Ovens
This unit was installed in 1999 and has ben working perfect until now. There is power going to the control panel. the clock can be set, cooking times entered plus it counts down and beeps when time hits 0. The light inside turns on. However, the turntable does not spin, there is no motor sound and no heating being provided. Any help greatly appreciated. Would love to repair this unit vs. replacing with new inferior model. It seems that quality of almost everything on the market has diminished throughout the years. Thanks!!!

I would suspect either door switches or an intermittent control circuit board, either of which can be repaired. Opening the door while cooking (without first hitting the STOP pad) is the primary cause of door switch failure over time. I have a text file on my site called "doorsw.txt" which helps in diagnosing and repairing door switch problems. You can find the file via a Google search. It will help you check and replace the door switches if you or an able friend is so inclined. In some cases, the problem is a bad connection or a bad relay on the control board. That's something we see fairly often, and we repair them for only $32.50 nationwide.

This is usually a bad door swithc or loose or broken door switch mount.

The problem is that the magnatron is not getting power. Chance is that if could be a bolwn fuse inside the unit. If the fuse don't fix it then that leaves the charging diode, capacitor or the magnatron, or high voltage xformer of which without technical epertize I would not recomend attempting to replace. good luck

first thing I would suggest is a hard reset. Unplug the unit for a
minute or so. Then plug it back in, set the clock and try again.

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.

The magnetron in your microwave has probably gone out. The magnetron is the
part of the microwave oven that produces microwaves. If you unit is a built in model,
it will likely cost more to fix than a new one. Same thing goes for a
