Question about Taylor Measuring Tools & Sensors

Our Taylor digital thermometer display is extremely dim and hard to read. It needs to be tilted just the right way. It is also lit but has the same problem. This has been since we bought it.

Change the batteries. LCD displays will appear very dim and hard to read except at certain angles is the batteries are low.

SOURCE: Digital display is very dim

The most common cause is the failure of an under-sized capacitor on the display unit. Look at the board under the display, the component is labeled C3. It is a small cylinder with the label 68mf, 35V on the side and is attached by 2 small wires. It will probably be a little burnt or have small brown drips like syrup under it. You can buy the component at Circuit City or anything like that for about 75 cents. You need a pencil soldering iron (about $10) to remove the old part and put the new one on. If you can drip a candle, you can solder these 2 wires.

SOURCE: Oven digital lighted display is dim

I replaced the C3 capacitor on the circuit board and works fine. This was mentioned in a prior post and took 5 minutes and was under $5.00 for the part.

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

SOURCE: how do you replace the battery on a Taylor 508

1) remove the soft rubbery cover from the back of the thermometer, this will expose a screw which holds the front plate on. 2) remove the newly exposed screw 3) use a knife or screwdriver (in the small slot on the side of the thermometer) to pry the two pieces of plastic case apart. This will expose the battery 4) use a screwdriver to remove the 1 screw holding the battery cover to battery. 5) replace with a CR2032 3V Lithium cell 6) replace screws and covers

Installed new batteries, but need instruction to reset temperature readings


Type "Taylor 1524 manual pdf" in google. That should pull up your manual. Sometimes companies produce the same item, with just subtle changes (product differentiation) i.e. Chevy used the same motor block for the 327,350,400 chevy motors, and just installed different cylinder heads.

The teamperature on the digital display can say 350 degrees and the oven thermatore that is located in the oven reads 310. Does this oven need to be calibrated? The oven is 6 years old.


The thermometer that hang on rack are Whooly inaccurate. A good one is the TAYLOR brand. As long as things bake within recipe time no adjustment needed but to do it;
  1. Press BAKE

  2. Select the maximum temp. depending on model it either 500 or 550

  3. Quickly (within 5-seconds of setting 550) press and hold the BAKE button approximately 5-15 seconds until "00" or the previously entered temperature adjustment is displayed.

    Pressing longer could cause an F0, F1 or F7 error to be displayed.

  4. Press the UP/DOWN arrow button to change the oven temperature in 5° increments to a maximum of +/- 35°

  5. Press the CLEAR or OFF button to return to normal operation.
But before doing that i suggest a new high quality thermometer that you hang on oven rack

Current temperature on Taylor TruTemp 3528 reads "LLL"


It needs calibrated. LLL (low) means you need to put the probe in a glass of ice water. It will then say HHH (high) means you need to put the probe in boiling water, don't let the probe touch the sides of the metal pot of boiling water.

Digital clock display read out is EXTREMELY dim even after adjusting brightness and contrast controls


Hello Jinx55,
the problem is the display unit itself or the cable that goes from the display to the electronic (Most likely the dispaly itself).
The display will need to be replaced. You can contact Miele directly at
