This one does not have a turntable shutoff option, which is available most commonly on over the range models.

You likely have a bad turntable motor or turntable support (the 3-legged part with rollers).

If yours is a Dacor DMT2420, it is essentially a rebranded Sharp model R440DK/DW / R540DK/DW.

There was an issue with the original turntable motor on these Sharps.

The new Sharp turntable motor kit is part # RMOTDA264/KIT and they are available from Tritronics at http://www.wehaveparts.com

I cannot guarantee that this is the correct Sharp part for this Dacor, but I believe it is, based on the other parts being the same.

Another thing to be sure of is that your turntable support does not have a cracked coupler (the part that connects to the motor) and you need to be sure the legs are straight.

Sometimes heat and weight cause the legs to bend so that the coupler will no longer go down far enough to make contact with the motor shaft.

To fix these, I use a gas stove burner or torch to heat up the area where the legs connect to the hub, then I turn it upside down with a weight on the hub / coupler and leave it until it cools.

This straightens the legs back, and you can do this once or twice before you have to replace the support. But if the support is cracked or charred, it needs to be replaced.

The Sharp turntable support part number is FROLPB025MRK0 and it's also available from Tritronics.

If you don't want to take the chance, the Dacor part numbers are:

66245 motor Ref # 1-11
66184 support Ref # 6-3

But it will depend on your supplier as to whether these are original parts prone to failure or the new and improved parts.

I tried cooking with the convection function in my dacor DCM24 microwave. now the microwave function will not work. the fan comes on, but the turntable doesn't move and there is no heat.


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

All the controls work and seems to be working with tray rotating but makes noise and does not cook


Having noise means some obstruction near the rotating tray or its motor need some lubricant. Has for no cook but control seems working, the magnetron and its fuses is the culprit because it doesn't anymore produce heat to cook food.
I hope that advice help you.

Turntable will not rotate.


If it's also not heating, on the DMT2420, that's a bad bottom door switch, or possibly that switch's mount.

Otherwise, it may be a bad turntable motor, turntable coupler, or the control circuit board (which we repair).

The service manual is here and the parts list is here.

Dacor Microwave PCOR3OS will not heat/tunrtable not turning


This Dacor model is very similar to Sharp model R1874.

We have the applicable service manuals for these models and have uploaded it to our site here and here to help you.

You will need the
free Adobe Reader to view or print them.

This is probably a bad secondary interlock (lower door switch) or possibly its mount is loose or broken.

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.

There are plastic mounts inside the microwave which hold the door switches and onto which the door latches lock when you close the door.

The screws on these mounts may be loose. If they get too loose, the switches will not be activated properly.

Sometimes it's a broken tab on the switch holder, allowing the switch to rotate just out of position. This tab can be hard to see, since it is under the bottom edge of the switch.

If you only need a switch, you can order a universal type here for $5 postpaid.

Dacor dcm24s.light, fan, and control panel work but turntable and heat do not


Most likely the bottom door switch. Dacor units are built by Sharp and that switch is a very common problem. You'd either need to check the switch with an ohm meter or remove the cover of the switch to see if it's burned inside.

You can see and hear a video of how a turntable motor should sound when you rotate it by hand.

If yours won't rotate or it sounds like it's grinding, etc., you may have a bad motor or plastic coupler.

To replace either, you need to unplug power, then remove the bottom cover of the oven. You may have to cut the cover off with snips, then use a screw when reassembling it.

Here are those part numbers:

66388 Turntable motor
66489 Turntable coupling

You can order either of there here.

Dacor Microwave dcm24s


This is usually caused by either a bad door switch, a loose door switch mount, or a problem on the control panel.

Even though a door switch clicks, it may still be bad inside.

This can be caused by slamming the door or by habitually opening the door while it's cooking without hitting the Stop pad first.
