Oven digital lighted display is dim

I have a Jenn-Air electric Wall Oven with a lighted digital display. Last week I noticed that the digital display was very dim. It has gotten dimmer and now I can hardly read it. The oven and all the timers, clock, etc. work just fine, it's just the digital display is dim. Thank you. It looks like I need to replace the clock board on my Jenn-Aire double oven again! I replaced back at the end of November 2003 (the oven was new in July 1999). When I ordered part #696652 back in 2003, it cost me $111.05 from RepairClinic, when I look now (a bit over five years later) it's now at $183.65 - Bob

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

    I just got done following the instrutions to replace the capacitor at the C3 position, and I almost cried when my display came back after 6 months of not being able to see it. My wife thinks I'm a genius. I had no soldering experience before this. I owe this poster a case of beer, as he saved me $168. Thank you for taking the time to post this. You saved me a ton of money (part cost $1.49) and saved this from going to landfill.

    Thanks very much for this - haven't replaced the cap yet, but am ordering the part and will save close to $200. Dinner's on me!

  • AdamGWL Aug 21, 2011

    Okay: I used a 100uf/35v replacement found at RadioShack for $1.61 and it's working perfectly. Very easy job. I expect this cap to fail as well, as it's only rated 85º C, and it's replacing a cap that was inadequate at 105º C, however, I wanted this done right away and saved $7 for shipping a 35¢ part, so I'm happy. I'm sure the wife will be pleased, too, if I can get her away from her yard work to have a gander.

    I found the correct 105 degree capacitors at Digikey and bought five sets since shipping was so (relatively) expensive. The first installed set is still working perfectly after 3-4 years so I'm willing to sell two of the sets very reasonably.

    Can someone outline the procedure to remove the control panel and replace the capacitor? Our Jenn-Aire double oven is 10 years old and we have had this problem from the beginning. In fact, we paid to have the control panel replaced twice because of the inability to read the temperature, time, etc. due to dimming of the panel. The ovens work fantastic! But we can't see the digital display. Any help is appreciated.

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.

Display on my Jenn-Air electric wall oven is very dim


douglas9101,
I had the same problem and found the solution on-line.
Replace the C3 capacitor on the dispaly module. (100 UF, 35 volt, high temperature)
The local Jenn Air dealer wanted $211 for a new display module.
I purchased a Cap from a local electronics supply store for 79cents.
The only problem is that you need to have a soldering pencil/iron, a solder ******/wick and a small amount of solder.

Steps I had to take on my oven:
- Flip the AC breaker supplying the oven to off to be save
- remove 3 screws on top and 4 on the bottom of the display panel
- gently pull out the display panel and unplug the 2 cables to the display
- unclip the ribbon cable to the display module
- unclip the module itself by pushing on the 2 black tabs
- locate C3
- unsolder C3 and replace with new Cap- keeping the polarity strip the same as theh old Cap
- reasemble in reverse order.

It took me all of 20 minutes. It may sound difficult but is very easy if you have the tools
Good Luck
K

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?
