SOURCE: Dacor DCM24 - Security screw/tamper proof hex bit size?

It's a a T20H Torx type or GTXH20-100, available from hardware stores, or places like Lowe's or Wal-Mart.

Some folks just break or bend the post in the middle, then insert a small flat head jeweler's screwdriver in the space between the post & outer edge of the hole. A sharp tap with a hammer will loosen them a bit.

Otherwise, you can use a hacksaw or Dremel tool to cut a groove in them, then use a flat head screwdriver to remove them.

Just be sure that any special grounding screws get put back where they were to ensure proper grounding of the case, an important protection from shock hazard in rare cases of internal wiring breakage.

The Dacor DCM24 is essentially a rebranded Sharp R930A and I have the full service manual here at my site.

As to what's wrong with it, I would say your secondary interlock (bottom door switch) has failed.

The service manual will cover it, but there's additional info here: http://www.microwavedisplay.com/doorsw.txt

The best place to order Sharp parts is Tritronics.

Placing the bag on an inverted glass bowl or pyrex casserole dish worked!!!!!  For 2 years, I have cursed my Dacor microwave for its inability to make popcorn (burns a hole in the bag, bag stays flat, almost no kernels pop, etc...)  I read the last suggestion to use the glass plate and I am now sitting with a bowl full of perfectly popped popcorn - with only 1 kernel unpopped.  The metal tray in the microwave conducts too many waves through the bag I guess.
Thanks for the solution!

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.

We're happy to help you with free advice and we'd appreciate your thoughtful rating of our answer.

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

7 yr old unit emitting burning smell. Everything still works. Is it worth trying to get repaired or just buy a new one.


is the burning smell just when you use the convection oven or when you use the microwave , reason I ask is that if its only coming from the convection oven then chances are you have something melted on the heat elements , this can be cleaned off with a dry brillo pad

Dead ge microwave


magnetrons work only when the unit is cooking
it smells like an insulation from overheating wire so could be a fuse and failing transformer
take it in for a proper diagnosis and quote but if it is over 2 years old the cost to repair could be more than a replacement unit

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.

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 power Dacor DCM24SS


I do a lot of work on Dacors / Sharps. Can you describe what you mean by "shutting off"? When it was shutting off before, was it completely dead with no display and no beeps? Was iut shutting off during a cook cycle or just while setting there or what? When it would come back on or start working again, how long did it take to come back, or how did you make it come back on?
