    Was it while it was cooking?

    Was the power to your home flickering or was the display or inside light flickering?

    Did the food item catch fire, or something else, such as a paper towel, paper plate, etc.

    Please clarify the situation and I'll be happy to help you.

Please write back with more details if this reply doesn't solve it.

(Such as, Was the fire inside the cooking cavity? Has the inside been cleaned since?)

There is a cavity temperature fuse located under the outer cover, on the top left side of the cooking cavity. It is rated at 150 degrees centigrade.

If there is a fire, that will open, killing all power to the unit.

A replacement can be found at a local appliance parts company.

The timer in my microwave runs down but the microwave will not come on. It's a DCS model # MO24SS


Your problem is almost certainly a bad secondary interlock (bottom door switch) or its mount.

See this text file on door switches.

The DCS MO24SS is essentially a rebranded Sharp R-530ES, just like the Dacor DMO2420S.

So the Dacor DMO2420 service manual (online here) will help you disassemble it and check it out.

The control units for both the DMO2420 and DMO24 have 12-pin connections from the power board to the CPU / display. I'd certainly send it back if it's wrong.

I'd also be interested in finding out where you got it, but not in a public forum. Feel free to contact me privately. It's only fair to give them a chance to make it right first.

If you still have the original control unit, we regularly repair these for customers nationwide with our guaranteed $39.95 service, regardless of which model it is, such as DMO24S, DMO2420, DMT2420, PMOR30S, etc. etc.

We have full details, plus *critical* safety, disassembly, and troubleshooting info at our site. You'll find a link to our site in our listing here on FixYa: http://tinyurl.com/yzjozk
