Question about Kitchen Ranges
I have a Maytag stove call "super capacity plus", the display panel did not light up and I can not control (turn on) the oven but when I press any button (Cancel ,,etc), it lights up as "OFF", I checked an AC line with my voltmeter, it shows there is 120V AC from the line to the PCB board, is that means I need to replace the whole PCB? is the digital display come with the PCB? please advise who to do?

I have the same problem intermittently on my Super Cap 465. After reading the following quote from another site, "There have been cases where radio waves, electronic signals and sometimes something as strange as dimmers in lights have caused some weird problems with some computer panels in stoves like these", I tries turning off lights that might be on the same circuit and wouldn't you know it, the oven igniter circuit worked.

Thank you so much for this information. I can verify that this procedure worked (at least for me). I ordered the part from Digi-Key Corp (it was up to a whooping $.28), replaced the old capacitor, plugged everything back in and bam! A working display. There was a beeping and error message but after hitting the Cancel button on the stove, everything was working.
Note that this fixed the dimmed display only. All the other controls were still working--only the display was off. If you have other issues, this might not be a complete solution.
You need basic soldering skills, a small solder iron, a solder ******, and some rosin-core solder. The capacitor is labeled on the circuit board.
When taking the unit off the control panel the largest ribbon cable was clear plastic with embedded contacts. I'd never seen one of these before. The cable's contacts slide in behind the pins on the connector and are held against it by an insert in the connector. When I removed the insert, the clear plastic cable came completely out from the connector. I had thought I'd broken it. But just slide it back in behind the pins, aligning the cable contacts with the pins and put in the connector insert to hold them in place.
The Digi-Key part number for the capacitor is P10292-ND. I ordered 5, just to have a few spares. The 5 caps plus first class postage came to a total of $3.51. Quite a difference from the $160 for the whole unit!
Thanks again to ultigerfan for making this information available.

We see this failure due to two possible problems with the electronic control. Sometimes there is a failure that causes the display to shut off. Other times the display itself goes bad. The first case we can repair. If you send us the board we can check it out. If it is not repairable there is no charge. - www.fixyourboard.com.
