How do you use the kitchen timer and cook at the same time?


If you have the kitchen timer set for instance for 10 minutes and it is counting down, and then you want to reheat you coffee for 2 minutes. You would hit either time cook or reheat button and enter 2 minutes ten hit start. The microwave will heat your coffee and show the 2 minute countdown for that. When done it will revert back to what is left on the 10 minute kitchen timer without missing a beat on most microwaves.

Microwave plate turner keeps spinning even with door closed and microwave turned off


My microwave is doing this as well; It's a frigidaire model #FGMV154CLFA.

After using the microwave part (it is also convection), the light stays on in the microwave and the turner keeps turning.

And I've only used the convection part of my microwave a couple times and I'm not sure if I was successful. While trying to cook something in convection mode, I pressed convection, then pressed the temp i wanted, then convection, then keyed in the time I wanted the item to cook. The microwave started and the timer started counting down but the countdown stopped with 8 minutes left? I left it alone to see what would happen and it never finished so I restarted the process again.

PS..I've never gotten an error code

How do I change the lightbulb on a dacor model DMO024 microwave oven


On this model, you have to remove the outer cover of the oven, then you'll find the lamp in the socket mounted on the air duct above the magnetron on the right side of the oven.

The DMO24S is essentially a rebranded Sharp model R-530E, so its service manual (here) will tell you how to disassemble it, but the proper part numbers are found in the DMO24 parts list here.

You can find links to helpful exploded view diagrams and part ordering help here.

At that last link, when looking for Dacor parts, you have to search by part number only.

I recommend that you bookmark that link to your favorites.

The microwave will run for a minute and then shut off


This is a problem in one of the damper-related components, either the switch or motor or the damper door may be binding.

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 (and Sharp-made Dacor and Wolf) models stop after 59 seconds.

When I go to cook something, there is barely any noise and oven doesn't cook. Plate turns slowly and timer counts down, but its not cooking. Also, light went out


I think it is time for a different microwave. Sounds like you may have some bad or worn capacitors, circuit board, or relays. The system will need to be fully tested to determine cause

I have a Dacor microwave DMO24 oven which i think is manufactured by Sharp. when the cook function is started it will hum/buzz for about 1 second and then blow a fuse. from the sound, and it's...


It is indeed made by Sharp.

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

If it went dead several seconds after pressing the Start pad, that's usually a failing high-voltage transformer.

Here are some links you or someone you know can use (in order given) for test help, but read the safety warnings first:

http://www.gallawa.com/microtech/cap_test.html

http://www.gallawa.com/microtech/xformer.html

OR, we have the service / repair manual for this model and have uploaded it to our site here to help you.

The parts list is here.

You can order Dacor parts
here.

If you prefer to order the original Sharp parts (which are usually considerably less) look for the part number on a tag on the transformer or capacitor (whichever is bad).

The part number for the capacitor will be similar to RC-QZBOl8MREO and the transformer number will be similar to RTRN-BO59MREO. Again, these numbers are examples to show Sharp's number format.

You can order Sharp parts from Encompass here http://tinyurl.com/7qy85y or you can call them toll-free at 866-779-5835.

Need help with DACOR Microwave model PCOR30S, w/the minute timer


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 models (and Sharp models made for Dacor) stop after 59 seconds.

See the attached sample photo for a typical damper assembly.

We have a very close service manual and have uploaded it to our site here to help you.

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.

If your model is PCOR30, and you need a new motor, the part number is 66756 and you can order it here.

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

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.

Clock will run down to 1 second of the minute and microwave will stop


The surge probably didn't cause this. This common error indicates a problem in the convection damper circuit. It may be a defective damper switch, damper motor, or a jammed damper door. I have attached a drawing of a typical damper system. If you or a friend decide to work on it, we have *critical* safety, disassembly, and troubleshooting info at our site, which is linked at our listing here on FixYa: http://tinyurl.com/yzjozk You can order parts for Sharp models from Tritronics at http://www.wehaveparts.com.
