Question about Dacor DMT2420 1200 Watts Microwave Oven

DACOR Microwave (DMT2420) Display erratic

Display sometimes is blank, other times is just disfigured. Since it is a wall unit, I have opened the breaker that feeds the unit and that occasionally fixes the problem. Other times when it doesn't, the unit will reset itself unpredictably at a later time. We have had a few power outages, which tells me this may be the result of a voltage transient?? The unit is currently working normally.

Poor solder joints are a common source of trouble on printed circuit boards. You might want to remove the control board and check for poor soldering (grainy joints, cracked solder, occasionally even unsoldered) or cables that aren't seated properly. Also, electrolytic capacitors are a frequent problem in electronic circuits. These are supposed to help filter and smooth out voltage and if they don't do their job you can have unpredictable problems. Capacitors are cylindrical parts around 1/2 to 3/4 of an inch high and around 1/4 to 3/8 in diameter. Look for swollen parts, bulging or split tops (they should be flat). If there are no visible problems the board may have a flaky microcomputer, possibly (as you've mentioned) from power transients. But bad connections are such a frequent thing with current equipment that I'd look for those first.

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.

Dacor DMT2420 Waveguide


Generally, you are speaking about a cover for this item..I'm guessing...or the unit would not work. If it is the guide...it distributes the energy in the unit. Replace it immediately.
