You may have a dim display or a fading display, or the circuit board may need to be repaired. They do these regularly for $39.95 nationwide.

If the display flickers but it does not affect how the microwave heats, then you don't need to worry about it. But if you are having display flickering and it is affecting the way your microwave operates, you may have a more serious problem in the microwave cabinet.

For microwave display and other control panel repair, see microwavedisplay.com.


Hope helps.

The display is too dim to read. what can I do?


Depends if it was dim when new then not a lot you can do
if it has gone dim , you have 2 options
1 unplug it and put plug in front of oven door,then remove all cabinet screws.locate the display control printed circuit (under display)take photo of wiring with phone to aid reassembly ,unplug and remove printed circuit board screws and board,clean display screen and window ,if was clear then either obtain replacement panel or take panel into radio or electronic repair shop and have them check and replace any poor electrolytic capacitors, this usually cures older ovens ,but if 6 0r 7 years old displays themselves dim and need replacing.ps if good at soldering just note these capacitor values uf and voltage and obtain at maplin and replace all observing polarity when fitting

Display very dim


Unplug the oven for five minutes and plug it back in, if the display is still dim you most likely have a bad smart board.

Display window dim


I would open it up and look at the connections to see if any can be replaced. Look for any darkened or burned looking connectors related to the display panel. Hopefully you won't need to replace the display panel circuit board but if you do. I would look for the cheapest replacement starting with ebay parts, and search engines for that specific part. Sometimes there are microwaves of different models with the same parts too!
