Try unplugging it, wait 60 seconds, and plug back in. Or press the HELP button if there is one, press the number "1", and press STOP. That works on my Sharp microwave.

My Dacor PCOR30 only works 58-59 seconds at a time. I've read this could be a control board issue (part No. 66660). Is this correct? Is there any other possible cause?


Not likely.

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.

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

Dacor DMT2420. Light and Display work fine, and you can type in time for cooking, but when you hit start, it does not make the buzz of it's normal sound, and the turntable doesn't spin.


On the DMT2420, that's a bad bottom door switch, or possibly that switch's mount.
The service manual is here and the parts list is here.

Need help with DACOR Microwave model PCOR30S, w/the minute timer


This is a problem in one of the damper-related components, most likely the switch, but it may also be the motor or the damper door.

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.

Sharp models (and Sharp models made for Dacor) stop after 59 seconds.

See the attached sample photo for a typical damper assembly.

We have a very close service manual and have uploaded it to our site here to help you.

You will need the
free Adobe Reader to view or print it.

If a switch is all you need, we offer a universal type for only $5 postpaid which you can order here.

If your model is PCOR30, and you need a new motor, the part number is 66756 and you can order it here.

Dacor DCM24 - Security screw/tamper proof hex bit size?


It's a a T20H Torx type or GTXH20-100, available from hardware stores, or places like Lowe's or Wal-Mart.

Some folks just break or bend the post in the middle, then insert a small flat head jeweler's screwdriver in the space between the post & outer edge of the hole. A sharp tap with a hammer will loosen them a bit.

Otherwise, you can use a hacksaw or Dremel tool to cut a groove in them, then use a flat head screwdriver to remove them.

Just be sure that any special grounding screws get put back where they were to ensure proper grounding of the case, an important protection from shock hazard in rare cases of internal wiring breakage.

The Dacor DCM24 is essentially a rebranded Sharp R930A and I have the full service manual here at my site.

As to what's wrong with it, I would say your secondary interlock (bottom door switch) has failed.

The service manual will cover it, but there's additional info here: http://www.microwavedisplay.com/doorsw.txt

The best place to order Sharp parts is Tritronics.
