There is not a way to make the display on your microwave brighter. That is the particular design of your appliance. I ask that you please follow up with a comment on the post, at your convenience, to advise if further troubleshooting is needed or if your microwave status has changed successfully. Hope this is helpful.

Frigidaire FPBM189KF microwave digital display is barely visible


Hi Gary, thank you for your post! Often if the display LED's are dimmed, it is because the issue may be related to a communication error with Main Control board or a potential wiring failure. Regrettably, this is not a simple DIY job. I would strongly recommend connecting with a professional to narrow down the precise issue before investing in parts that may or may not be the root cause. You can often locate a qualified service provider through the manufacturer website.

Fgmv174kfb dim display


The owner's manual (here) does not mention that as a feature, so I would assume the oven has a defect and would need to be returned to your dealer to be exchanged under warranty.

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

Dim control panel unable to read


Removed the amber glass which obscures the display enough to remove the wiring from view. This also allows you to see the characters much more clearly. You now can see the inidvidual light elements.
It's not too bad, people don't even notice, but they do notice you can now tell the time and see what the oven is doing.

The digital display is very dim and hard to read even in the dark. Is there a way to adjust the brightness?


I have a Sharp Carousel 1.5kW microwave oven with model number R-310F(W)C. The LCD dispaly on my unit recently became very dim. After check the small circuit board on the front panel, I found that the problem is caused by the LCD backlight driver which drives three surface mount LEDs. As the LED driver is inside a chip built on a small daughter card, it requires a replacement daughter card, or the entire circuit board for display and keyboard. A simple alternative solution is to cut the link between the three LEDs and their driver, then build a small circuit to drive the LEDs. I can provide the circuit diagram if interested.

Digital display lighting


The solution depends first on the type of display your microwave has. Please refer to the picture. The left side shows a partially defective LCD type display. If you have this type of display, we regularly repair them for $32.50 nationwide. The right side is a VFD type display which is weak due to age. On some brands and models, we are able to get a replacement display tube and repair it to a like-new brightness. Feel free to e-mail me at _ if you have other questions.
