If it's actually cooking when it shouldn't, it'll need to have the control circuit board repaired. Details on that are here.

If just the fan / turntable / light (or some combination of those) are on, but it's not cooking, then its probably a bad door switch or mount and this file will help you.

Feel free to contact me directly (and please remind me of your full model number from the tag on the unit) for more information & help.

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

I have a Russell Hobbs RHM2018 microwave oven with grill and the turntable will not stop going round and the light stays on until I unplug it? Once plugged back in it carries on in the same way? If I


The switch for the turntable does not disengage anymore. Could be a relais, could be an electronic switch. When opening the door, a second switch, in series with the other one, connected to the turntable motor disengages, stopping the motor. The light is switched on, because you opened the microwave. Perhaps you never noticed this, but it is the normal way that should work.

Turntable does not spin, no heat


HV fuse has failed. Possibly caused by door switches or Diode Pack failure. Do not attempt a repair unless you are competent to do so. Extremely hazardous voltages inside!

Turntable and light operating on its own.


It will be the door switches. The control board cannot control the motor and light on their own.

Light and fan stay on and turntable no longer work


Hi,
Not sure if your model has a belt driven turntable or gear driven. The cause of your problem is most likely a worn or loose drive gear or a drive belt which is worn or has come off.
Best have this checked at your local repair shop.

Best wishes,

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.
