Question about DCS MO-24-SS Microwave Oven

1 Answer

I have a DCS Model MO-24SS. The other day I was

I have a DCS Model MO-24SS. The other day I was heating something up and I heard a small pop. I went to the microwave and the fan wasn't spinning and the turntable stopped but the light was still on inside and the counter was counting down. The microwave was manufactured in 4/05 and I have only used it for the past two years as I bought the item and kept it in a box while we had remodeled the kitchen. I also rarely use it so maybe I have 300 total use hours. What could be problem?

    My husband also tested the watts the mircrowave is drawing and it is only drawing 25 watts while it is counting down. We guess for the light bulb inside the microwave. Is there a fuse that could have blown? If not, then maybe it is time for a new microwave.

My dcs mo-24-Ss microwave oven cannot heat the food after turn on, everything working fine other than no microwave come out


Assuming the turntable, inside light, and internal cooling fan all work when you press "Start" to cook, then I would suspect a bad magnetron, or a bad connection at the "FA" terminal of the magnetron.

If one or more of those three items do not work when you hit "Start", the I would suspect a bad door switch or mount.

The DCS MO24SS is essentially a rebranded Sharp R-530E-series microwave with different cosmetics and a higher price.

The service manual for the Sharp model is here.

The internal Sharp parts in the manual will interchange, but not the external cosmetic parts.

You can order Sharp parts from Encompass here.

Door won't open on dcs microwave oven


Only way out is to use good glue with a reenforced welding to strengthen the tab which will stand the strain. the other option is to replace the whole unit if the spare can be found or if this can be sourced from an old set.

Own Whirlpool microwave model MH7100XY, everything works on it, however it does not heat anything, heard a small pop and after that it does not warm or cook anything?????


The pop sound is an indicator the magnetron is gone that heats the food. It is cheaper to replace the microwave oven than have it repaired.

We purchased a Maytag microwave MMV4205BAQ about 3 years ago when we remodeled our kitchen. I put a cup of water in the microwave to boil and when I touched the Start button, I heard a small POP behind...


if microwave is counting down but no heat you either have a loose connection at the magnatron tube or the thermal cut out fuse that is connected to the magnatron has blown or you have a micro switch, that has failed

I heard a pop and then i saw sparks inside the oven, the sparks were coming from what looks and feels like a paper cover inside the microwave


This sounds like the inner lining is coming off and alloying the metal interior to spark. You will need to repair the liner and this should fix your problem.

Microwave popped and now does not heat


Okay, first we need to separate the situations. You were boiling water on the stove and had the range hood fan running to **** up the steam. Then you put something in the microwave to heat and you heard a pop and then zip-o.

The water on the stove has nothing to do with the situation, the fan you turn on is not part of the microwave, so it has nothing to do with the microwave.

The pop you heard and then the humming suggests the magnetron failed. You said you found a blow fuse and replaced it and still nothing, right? The magnetron is the most likely culprit...I would think it is safe to say that the magnetron shorted and drew enough current to blow the fuse.

Replace the magnetron and if that doesn't work, let me know here. Good Luck!

Buzzing (a little bit louder than normal humm), but no popping


WHEN THERE IS A BUZZING NOISE IT MEANS THAT ONE OF THE INTERNAL COMPONENT HAS FAILED .RANGING FROM A SMALL DIODE TO LARGE PARTS LIKE
THE MAGNETRON OR TRANSFORMER OR CAPACITOR. IF IT IS 10 YRS,OLD YOUR BETTER
OFF GETTING A NEW ONE .BECAUSE YOU COULD INVEST MONEY IN THIS ONE AND HAVE SOMETHING ELSE GO TWO DAYS FOR NOW.WITH A NEW ONE YOU ALSO END UP WITH THE NEW WARRANTY. HOPE I HELPED. KEN62 GOOD DAY!

Heard loud pop now not microwave not heating


I'd bet you mean MH7100XYB0?

If one follows the safety tips and testing procedures linked below, do-it-yourself repairs are safe and affordable.

#1 http://www.microwavedisplay.com/safety.txt

There should be a "mini-manual" (tech sheet) hidden inside the unit behind the control panel or hidden on the left side behind the grille, which is very helpful when troubleshooting, testing, and locating components.

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.

If you don't find yours, or if you want to look at it without disassembling the oven, you can download it here.

You can usually find helpful exploded view diagrams and order parts by entering your full model number here.

Here are some links you or someone you know can use for test help, but read their safety warnings first:

(if it's not shorted or burned, it's probably okay)

Microwave stopped heating after being cleaned (could be co-incidence). Besides not heating appeared to run properly. Let sit for a day hoping something was wet and would dry, tried heating glass of water...


If it went dead almost immediately after pressing the Start pad, that's usually a shorted high-voltage capacitor.

If it went dead a few seconds after pressing the Start pad, that's usually a failing high-voltage transformer.
If it goes dead or blows the breaker when you plug it in or open or close the door, then there's a problem with a door switch or door switch mount.

But you might replace the fuse and do another quick heating test to see if it blows again. If so, you'll need to do some checks.
