Question about Jenn-Air SVE47100 Slide-In Electric Kitchen Range
The clock display goes real dim when oven is on. Now it is getting more dim without oven being on.
It's a bad capacitor on the clock/display board. The solution was posted elsewhere in FixYa. I had the same problem and was told I should replace the clock/display board, which would solve the problem, but costs about $150 plus labor. If you can desolder/solder small components on an electronic circuit board, you can fix this yourself. Mine was capacitor C3, originally a 68uF 35V component. I replaced it with a 68uF 63V as the closest one I could find at Jameco.com which was less than a $1. Lo and behold, my clock/display is back to normal! Saved a lot of money to fix it myself and I know it will happen again over time, so I know exactly what to do next time.

This is a common problem with certain Jenn-Air and Maytag model ranges. Unfortunately, this is more of design issue. the problem is the location of the Electronic Oven Control board. If your EOC is located directly above the oven door in the front of the stove, the heat from the oven rolls out the oven door vents and right across the circuit card. This causes the board to overheat and the display to dim. Eventually, the EOC will fail or become unreadable. This is why some customers keep extended warranties or service plans on them so they can get the board replaced every so often (not cost effective if you ask me). One customer I knew had her EOC replaced 6 times! I do not know if there is a recall on these ranges, but I do know that SOME manufacturers will replace the unit, or provide a field change that modifies the circuit board or provide some sort of heat shield if it is a reoccuring problem. This may be something worth looking into. I know I haven't provided you with a solution, but I do hope that I've given you some answers on the cause.

My clock dimmed out. Had to replace the clock board. Note; relatively inexpensive BOARD rebuilder [does clocks, Oven Relay for ranges, and a lot of TIMER boards for other appliances, is at
If you are not a solderer, this is a good alternative.
Cost range is about 1/3 of that for new boards.

Be sure to check the warranty details. On our Jenn-air in wall oven, the basic warranty was one year, but the electronics was covered for five years. That covered the dim display replacement the first time at least.
I will try the suggested capacitor replacement this time before buyihg another display. And see about adding a cooling fan.
