I'm not sure why they would have sent you here, but, when it comes to microwave plates, they can often reach an expensive price when purchasing on their own, if and when you can find somewhere that sells them.
My suggestion is keep an eye out for any dis-carded microwaves that may have glass plates in them still or to contact the manufacterer to purchase a new plate, but be prepared to be met with a high cost
Sorry for the bad news. Good luck.

While cooking popcorn lastnight in the microwave the glass plate that rotates snapped in half. My husband picked it up right away so it wasn't hot. He put in a microwave safe plate into cook more popcorn...


All that is required to crack/break an item that is microwave safe is a fine crack or deep scratch. Water will expand so quickly as the microwave energy heats up the water, it turns to steam and cracks the plate with the pressure build up.

What is the best way to cook popcorn in this oven?


It's best to put the popcorn bag on an upside-down paper plate, and be sure it's off-center, not in the center of the turntable.

Raising the plate and keeping it slightly off center allows more even heating and also protects the glass tray from overheating repeatedly in the center, which can eventually lead to its cracking.

If it still won't cook properly, the magnetron, cooling air flow or power line voltage may be less than it should be.

My Dacor DCM24 microwave/convection oven is brand new and won't pop popcorn--old or new, large or small bag, with twice as much time as is on the bag, power on high. Doesn't work with the popcorn button...


Are you cooking it this way, as shown in the owner's manual?

"Use an overturned 9 or 10 inch oven proof glass pie plate on top of the
turntable when popping bagged microwave popcorn.
"

You can also use a paper plate in a pinch, but as always, never leave a microwave unattended while it's cooking, since some paper products can have impurities which will allow overheating and possibly fire.

This is a convection oven, so it has a metal turntable tray.

Microwaves cannot penetrate the metal from below like it would on a standard microwave's glass tray, allowing for even heating.

If you've lost your owner's manual, you can get it here.

Popcorn


According to the owner's manual (which you can download free from us here),

1. Place the bag of popcorn over an upside-down 9" glass (or paper) plate.

2. Touch POPCORN pad.

It will cook and stop automatically.

If this does not work, you may have a bad humidity sensor or control board, etc. and parts for this model are generally no longer available.

Dacor Microwave/Conv Oven DCM24S


Placing the bag on an inverted glass bowl or pyrex casserole dish worked!!!!!  For 2 years, I have cursed my Dacor microwave for its inability to make popcorn (burns a hole in the bag, bag stays flat, almost no kernels pop, etc...)  I read the last suggestion to use the glass plate and I am now sitting with a bowl full of perfectly popped popcorn - with only 1 kernel unpopped.  The metal tray in the microwave conducts too many waves through the bag I guess.
Thanks for the solution!

The cooling fan is a must!

Otherwise, the magnetron will be ruined, and that drives up the repair cost.

If you or a friend decide to work on it, 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

Microwave Turntable


Microwave popcorn gets VERY hot while cooking. Even though the turntable is made of temepred glass, intense heat applied in the same spot over and over can weaken the molecular structure of the glass. After so many expansions and contractions, it will crack because fatigue will cause some molecules to expand less than others, creating stress. This is yet another reason I recommend to my customers that they place the food off-center on the tray - not in the center. The oven also heats better when the food is off-center because the food is more thoroughly exposed to the microwave energy. Until you get a new tray, the photo below can help you.
