Unhappy Frigidare Display dim, not bright, but functional
Model Number: FEF389WJCB   Brand: Frigidaire   Age: 1 - 5 years

My glass top convection range is black with SS trim.

It works fine. But I have some complaints - or should I say my wife has the complaints.

1. The display buttons all work, but are quite hard to actuate. You really have to press them to make it go. That is a small annoyance.

2. The display is very very dim. It is almost impossible to read the temperature when you are setting the oven. Even with my eyes up close, and shielding the ambient light from the room, I have to interpret the setting, by how many beeps of 5 degrees past the last readable temperature. The Hundreds position is easiest to read, and then the tens, and the ones is quite difficult.

If all the lights in the room are out, I can tell the signal is there, it is just very dim.

Do I have any other recourse then to order a new one for $218.12? (AP2125111)

If I take the panel apart, clean the glass (it doesn't look too dirty frankly) and plug it all back together, is there a chance that will brighten it up?

Is this a common problem with these Frigidare ranges?

I wish I had better news for you, but a dim display could only be fixed with a new board. As far as the buttons, the new board will probably fix this as well, as long as the plastic buttons are not broken.

It's not a common problem with any specific brand or model. It's not really a common problem per se, when you're dealing with a computer board, it may last a month or twenty years, usually somewhere in between. The best way to prolong life of your appliance's electronics in my opinion is to use a surge protector. A lot of damage comes from voltage spikes, power surge, power failure, etc.

Hope this helps.
