Re: clock display too dim

You are going to need a display kit to fix this. It comes with a new display and relay board. The kit is about $200 and is somewhat difficult to install. This repair altogether usually runs about $400 to fix if you dont have someone handy that can do it for you. It involves removing and replacing at least 20 wires from the relay boards, as well as either pulling the oven from the wall or working in a tight space to change the board. You may be able to find just the display board somewhere, and that is very easy to install, but I've only ever gotten the part as a kit. Hate to be the bearer of bad news. Good Luck!

Oven digital lighted display is dim

You need to replace the C3 capacitor on the control board

You can replace only the C3 - it is 68uF / 35V and you can go to Radio Shack and get their part # 272-1028 - 100uF/35V one. It takes all but 10 minutes to re-solder the new one in place

My clock and temperature display is dim

Hi, this will happen over a period of time and its just heat related. the control panel isn't insulated properly and , there has been a larger than normal transfer of heat to the inside of the control panel where the circuits are housed.

If this is a problem, i recommend replacing the control board. it will fix the dim issue.

I replaced the C3 capacitor on the circuit board and works fine. This was mentioned in a prior post and took 5 minutes and was under $5.00 for the part.

Display panel

Dim display indicates a "failing" electronic oven control. It will continue to get dimmer and dimmer until it fails completely. You need to replace the "clock" (sometimes called the ERC <---Electronic Oven Control)

This is a tricky repair. Be sure you have the power off (at the breaker box) before attempting this.

Dimming temperature and clock light on display window

I found capacitor c3 (68 uf 35 volt) had leaked and dried up, causing the display to fail. I unsoldered and tested c1, c4, c7, and made sure they were good, using a digital multimeter with the ability to test capacitors. C3 also had visible signs of leakage. Works like a charm again, and the display is bright like new!
