SOURCE: bulb replacement

NO,If you can get to the three phillips screws directly over the vent door then you do not have to take the unit down. Unplug the unit. Remove the top three screws over the center of the louvre and then carefully lower the vent louvre. (Lowering helps me get a better grip on the louvre assembly. Then you will slide the vent louvre assembly about 1/8" to the left and then it will pull straight back and out. In the center is an aluminum cover which has a phillips screw facing you. Remove this screw and the cover plate. The light bulb is directly to the left of the inside of the cover plate. You will see the metal tabs which hold it in place. Pull the bulb housing assembly straight out (to your right) as you face the microwave. Then you will locate your halogen 120V 20W bulb. I just received this from a fellow guest on fix it and I was able to fix my unit 10 mintes ago.Also another tip was to take the inside glass out when reinserting the bulb unit back in because it does get in the way. Good Luck

Usually removing the appliance from the mains supply and taking the case off will reveal where the lamp is and depending whether it is an ES or Lucar fitting will depend on how tp remove it.
It is quite straight forward.
Replace the lamp with an identical lamp.
Hope that helps.

Microwave does not heat and makes a lot of noise


hi Richard, from experience i would say the power supply to the magnetron is at fault, you must take extreme care if you intend to test the supply as the high voltages involved...

How to replace lightbulb


Is this a countertop microwave or an over-the-rang (OTR) microwave? If it's a countertop model, you need to completely remove the outer case to get to the lightbulb. If it's and OTR microwave, there usually is an access cover located behind the grill vent. You can remove that grille vent by removing the 2 to 4 screws above the grill vent. Then either slide the grill vent 1/4" to the left to remove it, or else (depending on the model), just pull out the top of the grill vent, followed by the bottom. Then you should be able to see the lightbulb access cover. Usually there is 1 screw that you have to remove. But unplug the microwave before you to any further! Now remove the screw, lift up and remove the cover, and you should be able to get to the light bulb.

The timer in my microwave runs down but the microwave will not come on. It's a DCS model # MO24SS


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

See this text file on door switches.

The DCS MO24SS is essentially a rebranded Sharp R-530ES, just like the Dacor DMO2420S.

So the Dacor DMO2420 service manual (online here) will help you disassemble it and check it out.

Door won't open


What usually breaks is the door open lever, but it may also be that the rear side of the door open button has worn down too far to work.

On a counter top model, the outer cover will need to be removed to diagnose and repair this. On an over-the-range model, only the control panel needs to be
removed.

If yours is a DMT2420 or other counter top model that is built into a cubbly hole and surrounded by a metal grille (built-in kit), the kit will have to be removed, then the oven will slide out of the opening.

Once it's out, you can remove the outer cover and you'll be able to see how the door open button would press against the door open lever, which would then lift up against the door latch heads (hook-like projections on the door) and the door should open.

The model tag will either be on the back or around the door frame or control panel frame, or maybe inside the cooking cavity.

We have several Dacor microwave service manuals at our site:
It's a pain, but for Dacor the parts list are separate:
Once you have the part number of the part you need, you can order by part number here.

(This site does not list Dacor by model number, only by part number)

Light went out on the interior of microwave


The first step is to unplug the oven before changing bulbs!

I have a diagram at my site which helps you find & replace many cooktop and cavity light bulbs. It's at http://207.234.249.73/mwd/ge_lamp_replacement.jpg

If there's no obvious removable cover over the bulb (and the owner's manual doesn't address it) some disassembly may be required.

Always unplug a microwave before removing or installing any bulbs.

If it's an over the range type, remove the vent grille across the top and see if bulbs can be accessed there. There may be a panel on the bottom covering the light(s), instead.

If not, chances are you'll have to remove it from the wall, then remove the outer cover. If so, the installation instructions are very handy, and it's best to have two people since the microwave can be heavy and awkward.

Once it's out of the wall, the outer cover (wrapper) will need to be removed, just as you'll need to do on a counter top model.

The screws you need to remove should be pretty obvious, and a special driver (such as a T20H Torx type or GTXH20-100) may be needed.

Be sure to put all the screws back in the right holes, since some may be special grounding screws.

Bulbs can be had in most grocery stores, hardware stores, home improvement centers, and big box or department stores.

Many models use halogen lamps. You must not touch the new one with your bare skin, as the oils will shorten the bulb life.

Replacing lightbulb in Sharp R953M combi microwave oven


most microwave ovens built in the last 20 years do not have an
access panel to the light bulb. you must remove the screws on the back of the microwave that hold the outer sleeve in place.
Then pull upward and backward on the sleeve to disengage it
from the front lip of the chassis. the light bulb should be close to the front of the microwave behind the control panel. Some lights
are not unscrewable from the socket, but the socket and bulb
come as an assembly.
