Cannot open the door Dacor Model DMO24S

I know it is the Button assembly there is something lose inside, when I turn the control panel sideways something moves around (spring?) and when I careful put the control panel back I can open the door once, but then the loose part moves, and prevents the open button to move all the way to the back and the door wont open, Question?. How to remove the open button from the control panel and open it, or? Thanks

You will need to remove the outer wrapper, then separate the control panel from the microwave by removing the screw and then lifting the panel up and away. If you disconnect any wires, be sure to mark them, make a diagram or take photos first so you get them all back exactly where they were. The attached photo shows the area where two locking tabs are located. They must be gently pushed in to allow the door open button and spring to be removed. The door open button is part # 86778 (if your oven is black or stainless, part # 86778 if your color is arctic) and it can be obtained from a Dacor distributor such as http://www.apdepot.com This should be the same as a Sharp model R330BK (black model) and you can order that door open button from Tritronics. It is part # JBTN-B088WRF0 and they are at http://www.wehaveparts.com

Dacor microwave oven DMO24S panel buttons LEDs are non functioning. How do you replace panel.

I'm a little confused. What part you need depends on whether you have a display issue or an issue of some pads on the keypad are not responding.

Please post a new help request with your full model (thanks for that) and more detailed symptoms.

Microwave wasn't heating properly and now the door won't open. The button you push to open the door usually has tension on it but now it has none.

You can remove the control panel assembly, then you'll be able to see the door opening parts.

At our Web site, we have a video available showing how to remove a typical over the range control panel assembly in under 5 minutes.

The Dacor PCOR30 is essentially a rebranded Sharp R-1874, so the relevant Sharp service manuals (here and here) will help you with disassembly if you need more help.

The Sharp manuals will not have the proper Dacor part numbers.

For that, see the Dacor PCOR parts list here.

Our favorite place to order Dacor parts is by part number from the Pros here.

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

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.

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)

Dacor Microwave DMT2420S control panel screen white

It is the CPU/display assembly that has a problem.

We regularly repair such control units for customers nationwide by mail for $39.95 postpaid in about a week or so with a one-year guarantee.

In my professional opinion, there are weaknesses in both the design and manufacturing.

Our proprietary modifications and repairs are designed to not only repair these, but prevent them failing again.

We have the service / repair manual for this model and have uploaded it to our site here for free download to help you with disassembly.

Please tell your builder about us.

Feel free to contact me directly (and please remind me of your full model number from the tag on the unit) for more information & help.

Dacor dcm24s.light, fan, and control panel work but turntable and heat do not

Most likely the bottom door switch. Dacor units are built by Sharp and that switch is a very common problem. You'd either need to check the switch with an ohm meter or remove the cover of the switch to see if it's burned inside.

Dacor DMO24 microwave oven door stuck

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.

Dacor microwave

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
