    Default Kenmore range - dim display

    I've had a Kenmore gas range for about 5 years now, and the LED display is really getting dim. If the oven is on, I can barely read what the temperature is (the "red" lettering.) The green LED is a little better, but dim also. When everything it turned off, and only the clock is on, it is easy to read. But when the oven is on, it's all pretty dim. Any suggestions?

    Yes,

    You'll need a new electronic clock assembly control board.

    Whats the model# of your range?

    Thanks for getting back to me so quickly!
    The range (i believe) is model no. 665.75012. This is according to what someone wrote on the back in Sharpie marker. The manual covers a pretty wide range of ranges (pun intended) from 665.72002 to 75849. Let me know if you need any further info.

    That model# doesn't pan out.

    Your model# tag is located at the bottom front of your range on the front left or right side frame after you pull your storage drawer out.

    Thanks!
    But for now, I think I'll just count the "beeps" up from 350 degrees, and use one of these:
