Question about Dacor DMT2420SS Microwave Oven

1 Answer

Dacor DMD2420S My MWave LOOKS like it should be cooking but is not.... clock counts down, light is on, table turns, but does not heat. Any ideas? I've only had this for 2 years and never use it to COOK, just heat food.

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.

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.

The motor will not work. The interior light comes on, but the turntable does not go around. The cook time counts down, but no cooking occurs.


the turn table motor could have failed, but the counting down will be the monitor switch or a micro switch located behind control panel

The microwave will not heat. It will light up, count down, and the turn-table works. Any ideas???


This is due to a faulty magnetron. The magnetron is what provides the heat. The microwave may run and act fine but no heat with a bad magnetron. partselect,com has diagrams and parts lists so you can get a better idea if you need.

Dacor DMT2420S Microwave has light and touch pad fully functional but when you push start, the clock counts down normally but no sound of the oven running nor does the turntable turn. Food does not heat....


Simple fix.

You need to replace the bottom door switch, or repair its loose or broken mount.

See this help file on door switches, and refer to the service manual here for disassembly help.

You can find part numbers here and order Dacor parts (by part number only) here.

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

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.

Fan/ heating element won't turn on


You may have a bad internal fuse or thermosensor. Take off the key panel. look for fuses. Also the sensor is black, about the diameter of a dime and 3/8 inch thick with two wires...attached to the oven wall. Check for continuity. Quick check, remove wires, connect with a paper clip tape up and try. Do not run with the sensor out of the circuit except to test.
