On my stove the,
F1 - which showed after a minute of power. The clock didn't work but manual element and oven controls would. Basically the circuit board would not switch to 'digital'. After I checked the board components and seeing none were burned- I resoldered all the components except the chips( to rule out a 'cold' joint and replaced the largest capacitor near the display with a new capacitor of the same value but a higher voltage. PROBLEM SOLVED,
Cold solder joints are common and are very difficult to identify.
Fine point soldering/retouching all connections except the chips and replacing the caps have worked, and is an easy first step prior to a new board costing $$$'s. Mine cost 15 mins of time and $2.88 in caps. Give it a try..be precise with your soldering please.

My DCS double ovens do not have any display left ( all th egreen display has faded in past three weeks) on the display panel. can you give me an idea of what i should do next Thanks Jim


The replacement part is (or was) Fisher & Paykel #16252 Electronic Oven Control (app. $240 in '06 when I replaced the last one). For what it's worth, I have had two boards fail in the past 10 years. On both of my boards, capacitor C3 (68 uf, 35v) is the part that failed. I replaced the bad cap on both boards (cost $0.16) and the displays were back to normal. Obviously, the failed caps were the manifestation, not the cause of the problem with my boards.

Display LED light is out


Sounds like another control board failure, common on this type oven. It appears that a capacitor (#C3 on board) overheats and goes bad. Replacement of cap is a simple soldering job but the caps can be hard to find, try electronics parts houses and explain you need a high temp replacement. Should cost you about a buck. See post by BrianGem back in may of 2008, who turned me on to the target cap. Its a 35Volt 86mF. TURN OFF OR DISCONNECT POWER PRIOR TO ANY SERVICING PROJECT.

The oven was continuously beeping last night. Hit everything on the display setup to try to get it to stop. Eventually it shut off all together(the beeping and display) not the only thing that is showing...


Ok. this is a control fault. the chip set is damaged. this will usually happen when there is a surge or power failure during a storm or faulty transformer on the outside pole. you Will need to replace this damaged Electronic control board if possible . it has failed.

You can confirm my diagnosis by cutting the power to the oven for 5 minutes. this will reset the control. if the oven continues to react this way with the constant beeping and, non action, this will confirm major control failure..It is possible that this reset will recognize the program and fix this fault but, normally, a fault of this nature will require the replacement of the Oven control board.

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

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

Has help displayed in the digital display and will not allow you to set time and will not light


Hi. This may be a control fault. You can confirm this by unplugging this unit from the socket for 3 mins. once this hard reset is preformed, plug the unit back in the socket and power up. if the control display still reads (help), it will have confirmed a major control fault and you will have to replace the control board within this unit. if you cant physically unplug this unit, you can just shut off the circuit breaker for three mins as well.

please rate and god bless.

Jjw9630aab panel is dim


See other posts regarding replacement of capaciter #C3 on control board, cost of capaciter approx 65 cents.


BrianGem posted a great solution back in May of '08, I just completed that fix on my own Jenn air, took me about 30 minutes once I got the correct capacitor.
The display board apparently has a weak spot in the
design, most likely heat related, (probably low priced components from offshore sources)
Fix: Replace heat damaged capacitor labeled C3 on display board, Hard part will be obtaining the 35Volt 68uF capacitor, I'm lucky enough to have a Brother in the electronics design field who found me a couple of high reliability caps designed for hot applications, He does not recommend changing sizes without design review for fear of overloading another component, however several other posts have indicated that a 35V 100mF cap has worked fine for them.
My control panel was attached to the oven with 4 screws accessed from above the top oven door, the panel slid up about 1/2 " and lifted off, Unplug the ribbon cables and the panel can be removed to a convenient
work surface. The display board itself is mounted with 4 screws and connected with a wide flat ribbon cable, the suspect capacitor is surface mounted to the reverse side of the board, two plastic clips need to be released (gently) and the ribbon cable unplugged. Capacitor is likely discolored or leaking, De-solder it and replace with new, match polarity marks and don’t use any more solder than needed. TURN OFF POWER TO OVEN PRIOR TO STARTING ANY REPAIRS.
If you run into trouble drop me an e-mail to dltatsjc@aol.com and I’ll try to help.
Good luck.
Thanks for this site..

My display went completely dead. Been dead for a while. Just today I fixed it. You have to change a small capacitor, on display board labelled C3. Very hard to find the exact one which is, 35V - 68 microfarad, so I replaced it with 35V - 100 microfarad. Works just fine. You have to be handy, or find a friend that can do this, cause you will need to solder.

Anyways hope this helps. By the way the capacitor cost me 15 cents canadian.

Good Luck
