You have a blown convection thermal cutout.

"CONV. THERMAL CUT-OUT
The thermal cut-out located on the left side of the thermal
protection plate (left) is designed to prevent damage to the
heater unit if an over heated condition develops in the heating
unit due to convection fan failure, thermistor failure,
obstructed air ducts, dirty or blocked air intake, etc. Under
normal operation, the thermal cut-out remains closed. However,
when abnormally high temperatures are reached within
the heater unit, the thermal cut-out will open at 302˚F(150˚C)
causing the oven to shut down. When the thermal cut-out has
cooled, the thermal cut-out closes at 266˚F(130˚C)."

Turntable will not rotate and food will not heat up.


If it is not cooking and the turntable will not turn, this sounds like the secondary interlock switch is bad. Almost always this failure is caused by opening the door when it is in a cook cycle. Pushing the stop button before you open the door will prevent this in the future..

I have the Dacor DCM24 microwave and if the table does not spin will the microwave still cook food. I think my turn motor is bad, but wanted to know if I could cook food without it?


Yes! it will continue to cook food, the only difference you may end up with cold spots in the food, rotate plate once or twice to reduce this.

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.

See my help file on door switches here.

When I shut door, the light stays on and it


I would suspect that the door sensing switch (top door switch) is open inside or is disconnected. This will cause it to seem like the door is open, but it will not cook.

It may also have an intermittently bad secondary interlock switch (bottom switch). If this were the case, it would not microwave or cook in convection mode, but the turntable would fail to operate, too.

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

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

If you need other parts, you can order them by the part number in the service manual from this supplier.

My Dacor DCM24 microwave/convection oven is brand new and won't pop popcorn--old or new, large or small bag, with twice as much time as is on the bag, power on high. Doesn't work with the popcorn button...


Are you cooking it this way, as shown in the owner's manual?

"Use an overturned 9 or 10 inch oven proof glass pie plate on top of the
turntable when popping bagged microwave popcorn.
"

You can also use a paper plate in a pinch, but as always, never leave a microwave unattended while it's cooking, since some paper products can have impurities which will allow overheating and possibly fire.

This is a convection oven, so it has a metal turntable tray.

Microwaves cannot penetrate the metal from below like it would on a standard microwave's glass tray, allowing for even heating.

If you've lost your owner's manual, you can get it here.

Microwave operates for 59 seconds then shuts down.


This is a problem in one of the damper-related components, most likely the switch, but it may also be the motor or the damper door.

The damper is a door inside that opens or closes depending on cooking mode. If the controller senses that the door is not in the right position, it will shut down the cook cycle.

Sharp-made models stop after 59 seconds.

See the attached sample photo for a typical damper assembly.

We have the equivalent Sharp service manual for these Dacor models and have uploaded it to our site here.

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

If a switch is all you need, we offer a universal type for only $5 postpaid which you can order here.
