That would be your waveguide cover. If damaged or discolored, the waveguide cover has been damaged by heat and must be replaced.

It protects your waveguide and magnetron from arcing due to grease and food particles.

The area of the waveguide behind the waveguide cover should be clean, and if rust or flaking is present it must be sanded, then repainted with high temperature appliance paint.

For Dacor model DMT2420S, the waveguide is part number 66345 and you can get it from The Pros here for $11.07 (subject to change).

The service manual is at my site here: and the part list is here:

We have a Dacor Microwave DMT2420S that everything works except the Touch Screen doesn't light up.

The display board is bad, it may be part of the control PCB or it may be separate. Some are back lit and some are lit internally.

Dacor DMT2420S Microwave has light and touch pad fully functional but when you push start, the clock counts down normally but no sound of the oven running nor does the turntable turn. Food does not heat....

Simple fix.

You need to replace the bottom door switch, or repair its loose or broken mount.

See this help file on door switches, and refer to the service manual here for disassembly help.

You can find part numbers here and order Dacor parts (by part number only) here.

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

Operation manual is lost, how do I set the clock?

The manual for the Magic Chef MCD1311ST Microwave can be downloaded in pdf format from the following site (follow the link then click the "Manuals" tab):

If you don't have time to download, here's what the instructions state:

When the oven is first plugged in, the display will flash ":0" and a tone will sound. If the AC power ever goes off, the display shows ":0" when the power comes back on.

1. Touch CLOCK pad.
This is a 12 hour clock system.

2. Touch CLOCK pad once more.
This is a 24hour clock system.
NOTE: This oven has multiple clock system. If you want 12 hour clock system, omit this step.

3. Enter the correct time of day by touching the numbers in sequence.

4. Touch CLOCK pad.
The display stops blinking, and the colon start blinking. If you selected 12 hour clock system, this digital clock allows you to set from 1:00 to 12:59. If you selected 24 hour clock system, this digital clock allows you to set from 0:00 to 23:59.

5. Touch STOP/CLEAR pad.

NOTE: If you attempt to enter an incorrect time, the time will not be set and a error signal tone will sound. Touch the CLOCK pad and re-enter the time.
