The antenna generally will not retract until the power is turned off at the deck or if you turn the key off (which turns the deck off).Your deck may have a selectable dimmer function in the settings menu you should be able to set it to automatic and it will handle the dimming on its own then.

The display is dim on the oven. Everything works

1. Sometimes you can clean it inside to brighten it up for a while.

2. In some cases, we can replace the VFD to brighten one up if it's available for a given model.

3. The last solution is to replace the control circuit board.

For more specifics on the options 2 & 3, we would need your brand and full model number.

Please note that FixYa is not currently notifying us Experts when Clarification Requests are answered.

To allow us to help you effectively (at no charge), please post a
NEW problem to FixYa, and please include your brand name and the full model number from the tag in or on the unit, as well as your symptoms, "dim display".

As for suggestion # 1, cleaning:

At our Web site, we have a video available showing how to remove a typical over the range control panel assembly in under 5 minutes.

Then you can detach the keypad connector (as per attached photo) then remove the control panel screws.

Be careful not to crack the glass display when handling it, or it's a goner.

Then you can use a soft cloth (not a paper towel) and a mild cleaner (not ammonia-based) to clean the front surface of the VFD display glass and the rear side of the clear bezel (display window) that's attached to the keypad.

Direct spraying of cleaners on the keypad and steam from the cooktop can damage the controls.

I always recommend that you spray non-ammonia cleaner on a soft cloth (not a paper towel which can scratch) and gently wipe the keypad.

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

Thermador Display

Have 2 Thermador ovens, SMW272 and SC302. Both have display failure. Just repaired one with replacement display. It did not require a new control unit or harness. Have not opened up second unit yet as display is still dimly/slightly visible.

Called Thermador and received no offer of replacement parts or service. Numerous other web reports of similar failures. My neighbor has 2 dead ovens also unfixed because of outrageous repair estimates ($600 each). Do not recommend this brand.

Full kit including display, control, and harness ordered on Ebay for $170.
