Dacor DMO24 microwave oven door stuck

The touch door open button on my microwave isn't working - the only way to get it open is to pry the door from underneath. It looks like the latch to the door isn't coming out far enough??

What usually breaks is the door open lever.

On an over-the-range model, only the control panel needs to be removed. Please unplug the oven first.

If you or someone you know wants to look into this, 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

Once it is apart, you'll be able to see how the door open button would press against the door open lever, which would then lift up against the door latch heads (hook-like projections on the door) and the door should open.

Dacors are made by Sharp, and one of these service manuals below may help you.

Door won't open


That's probably the door open lever or door open button, and there may be grease where the button passes through the control panel frame.

How do I change the lightbulb on a dacor model DMO024 microwave oven


On this model, you have to remove the outer cover of the oven, then you'll find the lamp in the socket mounted on the air duct above the magnetron on the right side of the oven.

The DMO24S is essentially a rebranded Sharp model R-530E, so its service manual (here) will tell you how to disassemble it, but the proper part numbers are found in the DMO24 parts list here.

You can find links to helpful exploded view diagrams and part ordering help here.

At that last link, when looking for Dacor parts, you have to search by part number only.

I recommend that you bookmark that link to your favorites.

I opened the door on our Dacor microwave after heating food and the interior light, which was on for about a second, blinked off. The light will no longer come on when the door is open and the microwave...


On the DMT2420, that's a bad bottom door switch, or possibly that switch's mount.

Door won't open


What usually breaks is the door open lever, but it may also be that the rear side of the door open button has worn down too far to work.

On a counter top model, the outer cover will need to be removed to diagnose and repair this. On an over-the-range model, only the control panel needs to be
removed.

If yours is a DMT2420 or other counter top model that is built into a cubbly hole and surrounded by a metal grille (built-in kit), the kit will have to be removed, then the oven will slide out of the opening.

Once it's out, you can remove the outer cover and you'll be able to see how the door open button would press against the door open lever, which would then lift up against the door latch heads (hook-like projections on the door) and the door should open.

The model tag will either be on the back or around the door frame or control panel frame, or maybe inside the cooking cavity.

We have several Dacor microwave service manuals at our site:
It's a pain, but for Dacor the parts list are separate:
Once you have the part number of the part you need, you can order by part number here.

(This site does not list Dacor by model number, only by part number)
