Oven digital display not working well

I have a Jenn Air oven model #jjw9530cas. The digital display works very infrequently and is also very dim. The oven works great as far as heating/cleaning, etc. Is there a bulb or battery that I need to replace or does this sound like a bigger electrical problem?

I got your fix no prob. This is going to cost you a buck fifty, that's $1.50, I say it again...one dollar and fifty cents! Got your attention yet?
Here's the solution to a dim display or non working display when the oven otherwise works.
1. Turn off your circut breakers to your oven, then remove the display and control panel via the screws you see on the top or underneith. There will be about 4-7 screws based on your model oven. You'll pull it either up or down depending on the model by grabbing with both hands on either side of the panal after you have removed the screws. 2. Carfully remove the three or four ribbon cables connecting the display panal to the oven electrically. This should be done carfully and only after the power is shut off to your ovens by the circut breaker or unplugging them. 3. Pull the display panel out by unlatching the black plastic snap holders. Using a soldering iron (costs about 15 bucks at radio shack), remove the C3 (68uF 35V) capacitor from the board. Replace it with the 100uF 35V capacitor from radio shack or digikey for $1.50 +tax. If you don't know how to solder, well you can learn for about 15 minutes of your time, or you'll have to resort to paying your repair man over 300 bucks to fix it himself and the best part. HE CAN'T SOLDER EITHER! He'll replace the whole display LCD because that's the most profitable choice for him and Jenn-Air/Matag. 4. After getting upset at how easy this fix was, put the oven together and rejoice that you just fixed your display problem for less then 2 dollars and about and hour of your time considering the search the brought you here. Cheers to you and to me for letting you know about this. Share all the knowledge you have with others. It's free money!

    This worked GREAT!!!! Thanks.....Save me $150 . Got the F7 error after reconnecting. I just unconnected and reconnected and error went away.

    I'm having the same issue but my oven is older and a model WM30460W will this same solution work on mine?

  • birdbox Dec 15, 2010

    Yes, if you have a dimming, intermittant, or non-working display.....but other than the display the oven works perfectly. The C3 capacitor is in need of replacement. If you can't solder, find a friend who can. The 68uF 35V capacitor can be replaced with a 100uF 35V capacitor available at any radio shack. De-solder the old one, resolder the new one, you're done. If you get an error code, then your oven display is now working!

    Any chance this is something other than the C3? I see a C37, C38, C40 and C1 matching the look of the 68uF 35V, but no C3. Even those are A 100uF 50V OR 47uF 50V. Thoughts?

  • amenthoth Jan 01, 2011

    Found the C3, but it was a 1uF 50V. Replaced it with the same and still the same problems (#'s 1-4 do not function, nor LL Oven Light button and Timer 1 button). Any further thought would be appreciated.

Oven digital lighted display is dim


You need to replace the C3 capacitor on the control board

http://fixitnow.com/wp/2009/01/28/cheap-fix-for-a-dim-display-on-an-oven-control-panel/

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.

Oven digital lighted display is dim


mY 27" WALL jENN air blows cold air out the vents when on cleaning cycle. The red buttons aren't lighted. The door locks, otherwise it bakes fine. I wonder if it is really cleaning?

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.

The light and temperature display are very dim and hard to see.


We own a Jenn-Aire model W27400W oven. The display module has gradually gone dim over a period of several months prior to the end of the warranty, and the display is no longer visible. It is apparent that several Jenn-Aire oven models use the same display. Does Anyone else have the same problem, and If so, are they willing to join a class-action suit against Jenn-Aire with us?
