There's no built-in adjustment for the brightness, but we regularly repair microwave displays and controllers, and we can easily modify the circuit to lessen the brightness.

Details of our service are at our Web site, along with a video showing how to remove a typical over the range control panel assembly in under 5 minutes.

Feel free to contact me directly with your brand, full model number and symptoms.

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

Adjust display brightness on frigidaire PLMV168


Good Afternoon Friend,

I understand that the display on your Frigidaire microwave, model# PLMV168, is dim and you are wondering if there is a way to make it brighter. There is not a way to make the display on your microwave brighter. That is the particular design of your appliance. I ask that you please follow up with a comment on the post, at your convenience, to advise if further troubleshooting is needed or if your microwave status has changed successfully. Hope this is helpful.

-Best regards-

Dim display light brightness


Hi,

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

Fgmv174kfb dim display


The owner's manual (here) does not mention that as a feature, so I would assume the oven has a defect and would need to be returned to your dealer to be exchanged under warranty.

How do I increase the intensity of the green in the display on my Sharp Carousel R-1460A microwave oven?


This model does not have a brightness adjustment for the VFD display.

It may be a weak VFD tube due to aging or it may be that the rear of the display window and front of the display glass are very dusty.

Sometimes you can clean it inside to brighten it up.

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.

Some connectors have a lock.

positivelock.jpgIf that cleaning didn't help, then you have a weak VFD.

We can replace yours for $74.95. Details are here.

Digital display lighting


The solution depends first on the type of display your microwave has. Please refer to the picture. The left side shows a partially defective LCD type display. If you have this type of display, we regularly repair them for $32.50 nationwide. The right side is a VFD type display which is weak due to age. On some brands and models, we are able to get a replacement display tube and repair it to a like-new brightness. Feel free to e-mail me at _ if you have other questions.
