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.

Unit shuts down every 59 sec. No matter how much time, with or without anything in micro and I figure to replace motor and switch. How do I get to those parts in unit? Does it have to come down?

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.

Dacor-branded PCOR30-series microwaves are just cosmetically altered versions of the Sharp R1870-series ovens.

These Sharp-made models stop after 59 seconds when there's damper toruble.

See the attached sample drawing below for a typical damper assembly.

We have the applicable service manuals for the Sharp models and have uploaded it to our site here and here to help you in disassembling and troubleshooting your Dacor version.

You can find the Dacor PCOR parts list here and you can order Dacor parts by part number here.

If a switch is all you need, we offer a universal type for only $7.50 postpaid which you can order here.

You will have to remove the oven from the wall and remove the outer cover to access, test & replace damper parts.

Just refer to your installation instructions.

The MW died. No power or lites on panel.It will not work.Could this be a panel replacement like on the JennAire range?

Welcome to Fixya Support,
It seems to be problem with panel and before concluding make sure that your Micro Owen Power supply cables and power outlets are working or not. If all are working fine,it is deffinately problem with HV powersuply and Magnetron.
I think it helps.Let me know.

No power, just shut completely off.

there must be an open fuse on your oven a glass fuse or a termal fuse you need to open the unit and look for it you can have a replacement on a electronics shops..

Microwave is on when you shut the door

I tried all the things on your website. Holding the clear button , unplugging,...

So I went back to the last operation that I was doing when the problem started.
I was using "reheat" so I put a glass of water in the micro turned on reheat 1 serving.
It started and then I hit clear after a few minutes and the problem went away.

No power Dacor DCM24SS

I do a lot of work on Dacors / Sharps. Can you describe what you mean by "shutting off"? When it was shutting off before, was it completely dead with no display and no beeps? Was iut shutting off during a cook cycle or just while setting there or what? When it would come back on or start working again, how long did it take to come back, or how did you make it come back on?
