Microwave wasn't heating properly and now the door won't open. The button you push to open the door usually has tension on it but now it has none.


You can remove the control panel assembly, then you'll be able to see the door opening parts.

At our Web site, we have a video available showing how to remove a typical over the range control panel assembly in under 5 minutes.

The Dacor PCOR30 is essentially a rebranded Sharp R-1874, so the relevant Sharp service manuals (here and here) will help you with disassembly if you need more help.

The Sharp manuals will not have the proper Dacor part numbers.

For that, see the Dacor PCOR parts list here.

Our favorite place to order Dacor parts is by part number from the Pros here.

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

Door won't open


That's probably the door open lever or door open button, and there may be grease where the button passes through the control panel frame.

I opened the door on our Dacor microwave after heating food and the interior light, which was on for about a second, blinked off. The light will no longer come on when the door is open and the microwave...


On the DMT2420, that's a bad bottom door switch, or possibly that switch's mount.

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)

Often I have to hit the open panel several times to open the DMT24203 purchased in January of this year. It started a couple of weeks ago . Would appreciate any info Patricia Kuhl


This is usually due to grease buildup, or a worn or broken door open button or door open lever.

Since it's less than one year old, it should be fully covered under warranty. I'd suggest contacting the manufacturer to get it fixed free.

If you are a Dacor owner with product covered by a Dacor Warranty, please contact your local Dacor Authorized Service Provider, or contact Dacor at (800) 793-0093. Or, click here to Contact them online.

Dacor DMO24 microwave oven door stuck


What usually breaks is the door open lever.

On an over-the-range model, only the control panel needs to be removed. Please unplug the oven first.

If you or someone you know wants to look into this, we have critical safety, disassembly, and troubleshooting info at our site, and our link is at our listing here on FixYa: http://tinyurl.com/yzjozk

Once it is apart, 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.

Dacors are made by Sharp, and one of these service manuals below may help you.
