Display panel is scrambled on my Dacor DMT2420 microwave.

All functions continue to work including the display panel, however the display is scrambled and hard to read. How do I unscramble the display?
Thanks

Dim display light brightness


Hi,

You will need to replace the display, call Dacor first to see if they will assist in a price break or replacement part. They are normally good with there customers. But there is no way to adjust the display, its just fading over time, like a light bulb.

I hope this helps

Dacor DMT2420. Light and Display work fine, and you can type in time for cooking, but when you hit start, it does not make the buzz of it's normal sound, and the turntable doesn't spin.


On the DMT2420, that's a bad bottom door switch, or possibly that switch's mount.
The service manual is here and the parts list is here.

Display scramled, light works, timer counts down but unit doesnt


We regularly repair such control units for customers nationwide by mail for $39.95 postpaid in about a week or so with a one-year guarantee.

Assuming your model number is DMT2420 (since that's the category under which your query was posted) then you likely also need a new secondary interlock (bottom door switch).

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.

If you have a different model, please reply back or contact me directly with the correct model.

If you want to send your control panel assembly in for repair, you can note on the repair form that you need a new door switch and we'll throw one in at no charge.

Feel free to contact me directly (and please remind me of your full model number from the tag on the unit) for more information & help.
