Jenn Air Dim Display
OK, this is for the hardcore appliance DIYers.fficeffice" />>>
I'm not sure if this is appropriate, and if it's not I apologize and please disregard.>>
I have the typical dim display problem described in many posts on this and other forums, but am asking a different question. I've found the replacement part but before I order it I would like to take a stab at repairing the display board. The reason I want to do this is I have done this exact repair on my 98 Buick climate control board that had the exact same problem. Display went dim then finally went completely out. I found the repair on the Internet that essentially consisted of re-soldering resisters that had a cold solder joint. So I'm wondering if something similar could possibly work. I'm going to attempt this whether or not I get any feedback, but if anyone has any input I would appreciate it.>>
Thanks for any help, >>

If you only knew how many electronic boards I've tried fix over the last 20 years and with some success, lots of failures too. Then I watched a special on PBS about silicon chips and found out most of the problems are inside the small microprocessors themselves. Under an electron microscope you could see where the "wires" swell or corrode and short out. After that I gave up. But I say go for it and good luck. Let me know how you do.
