    Yes, the outside cover needs to be removed and where the power enters there should be a fuse..

The Dacor DMT2420S microwave has power. Instrument dial is lite and the timer works. I can program the keypad however the turntable will not turn and the microwave will not work. The timer will count down...

There's no reset button, and if the fuse were blown, the oven would be totally dead.

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

You can see our help file on door switches here and the service manual here.

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

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 electricity Clock is off nothing works

Plug something else into the outlet and see if the device works if it doesn't then reset the breakers. If the other device does work then the microwave is bad and needs replacement.

Has power to unit but nothing works, ie. oven, clock, timers, etc

If you don't see any light in the display or from the light bulb inside it you probably need to replace the fuse inside the microwave, it should be by the place where the cord goes in the microwave.

When i plug my microwave into wall outlet sparks come out of the outlet and now none of the other outlets in the kitchen are working. There is also a charring on the outlet and the prongs of the microwave...

Well, the breaker has trip,but the microwave must have a short in it.Go turn turn back on and don't plug the microwave back into it to see if everything works.

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!
