Microwave comes on in cooking mode with the door closed when plugged in. The Clear/Off button does not turn off and we have to open the door to turn off.

I have a hunch the microwave panel is going into Child lock mode and preventing you from operating the clear/off function. Not sure which is the middle switch that you replaced. I would suggest you give the panel a good wipe with a clean damp cloth to remove all grime etc. Before selecting the start/pause button press the Clear/off button for 3 secs and see if the L (lock) shows up on the display. Next press again for 3 secs to see if L goes away.

This way you have confirmed the panel is not in lock mode before you start next operation. Provide your observations in the comments section so that I can assess what the next step should be.

You have a faulty keypad. You could probably special order this part from a local appliance parts supply store for 50-60$ or purchase a new microwave.

1800 XL JVM1860BD - won't work

It sounds like your controller may be failing. Or it could be an electrical line problem. Any other electrical itmes giving you trouble? Has anyone measured the voltage level of your power line? It should be around 110-125 volts AC. If it's significantly lower or higher, you may have a bad connection in your breaker panel or in the wiring leading to the home.

Cannot open the door Dacor Model DMO24S

You will need to remove the outer wrapper, then separate the control panel from the microwave by removing the screw and then lifting the panel up and away. If you disconnect any wires, be sure to mark them, make a diagram or take photos first so you get them all back exactly where they were. The attached photo shows the area where two locking tabs are located. They must be gently pushed in to allow the door open button and spring to be removed. The door open button is part # 86778 (if your oven is black or stainless, part # 86778 if your color is arctic) and it can be obtained from a Dacor distributor such as This should be the same as a Sharp model R330BK (black model) and you can order that door open button from Tritronics. It is part # JBTN-B088WRF0 and they are at
