The digital display, which includes clock and oven status/temperature, is so dim that I can no longer read the oven temperature. Is there any way to make the display brighter without replacing the entire display/EOC unit?

Re: Dim Digital Display
Unfortunately it is not possible to make the display brighter. The only solution is to replace the entire clock/timer. The price for the part is less then a hundred dollars and if you will give me the complete model number and a color, I can help you to find the best deal.

Very few ranges have any type of display dimming. Dacor is the only one I know of. If the display is very dim and hard to read, you will need to replace the clock or Electronic Oven Control. If the range is still under warranty, call Whirlpool and request service.
The Electronic control has lights inside for the time and for the temperature. Over time the lights get dim (Frigidaires do it a lot). The Electronic control is not a Servicable part. You must buy a new Electronic control.
Sounds like the transformer that powers the display board is shot. Unfortunitly, they are located ON the display board on most ovens. You will most likely have to replace the display board. Contact DCS, they will be able to help you. Have model # and serial # handy BEFORE calling, both are needed for them to help you. Voltage too.
HI. Sorry to say that the board may be bad. take the stove apart to get to it. there should be a fuse on the board. check it. The clock is there but on a curcit of it's on. But that dose mean the board is getting voltage. Hope it's the fuse.
Replacing capacitor C3 on the clock board will correct the dimming problem. I will cost you about $2 for the part. Replacing the board does the same thing just with a higher price tag. Unfortunately, tt sounds like you may have a bad "new" board if this problem happened as soon as you put it in.
When I had the dim display problem with mine, the oven still heated up, chimed at temp, etc -- you just couldn't see the numbers. My wife didn't like it, so I fixed it. If your old board works like mine did even though the display is dark, you could try replacing the noted capacitor and see what happens.
It's a bad capacitor on the clock/display board. The solution was posted elsewhere in FixYa. I had the same problem and was told I should replace the clock/display board, which would solve the problem, but costs about $150 plus labor. If you can desolder/solder small components on an electronic circuit board, you can fix this yourself. Mine was capacitor C3, originally a 68uF 35V component. I replaced it with a 68uF 63V as the closest one I could find at Jameco.com which was less than a $1. Lo and behold, my clock/display is back to normal! Saved a lot of money to fix it myself and I know it will happen again over time, so I know exactly what to do next time.
Our 7 year old "Jenn-Air Convection Oven", Canadian Model # SVE47600 also has a very dim display. We can barely read the temperature on the oven. Does anyone know what is wrong, how to fix it, and what it may cost us?
