Microwave display - digits have become dim / partialy missing

We have a Dacor built-it microwave in which the display readout has become dim and some of the digits only display a portion of the number. It's a LCD display. The unit is vintage 2001 and I haven't been able to find a troubleshooting guide or parts listing to try to shoot the problem.

I have a 12yo Sharp r-430cs microwave. The LED is not displaying all the "lights" in the numbers/alpha readouts. It is missing a lot more of the readout than it is showing. Everything else is working

Go to Sharp's website and check availability of the clock/timer readout board. Being that old you may not be successful, but it;s worth a try.

Dim display light brightness


You will need to replace the display, call Dacor first to see if they will assist in a price break or replacement part. They are normally good with there customers. But there is no way to adjust the display, its just fading over time, like a light bulb.

I hope this helps

We have a new 24"Dacor

The service manual is here and the parts list is here.
That mesh is the door screen which prevents microwave leakage.
It must be intact or replaced, or a fire hazard exists.
You can order Dacor parts by part number from the Pros here.

Sparks and lightning like flashes appear when the microwave is on. It is a Dacor 24''

If something like a knife, spoon or fork is in the micro, this usually happens. It could also be that the interior of the micro may be damaged due to rust. Check for open metal, cracks or paint missing on the inside of the microwave.
