• ** REMEMBER! **The microwave can still shock you even unplugged!!

    ALWAYS discharge the high-voltage capacitor first if you even think your hands will come close to any HIGH VOLTAGE components.

    Jeff mentions this: Anything in the high voltage ( magnetron, capacitor, diode, wires to and from ):
    ...Use a metal ( not the shiny chrome type ) screw driver with a insulated handle to short across ( touch both at the same time ) the terminals of the high voltage capacitor to discharge it.

Seems to need Whirlpool part DE94-01354A or Samsung part AP4236469 ??

Everything about the microwave works except the display, am I right in assuming the display is not available separately from the entire panel/control board?

Someone had suggested in another thread to unplug it for a while. We bought the microwave used with this problem, and actually had unplugged it for 3 days recently.

ALSO: A few days ago it seemed to stop heating when immediately turned on. At that moment it would not turn off (the Cancel button didn't work) and opening the door did not stop the interior light nor turntable. And so we unplugged it. 3 days later, plugged it back in all seems normal.

So is this new development likely to be intermittent, or will the control board actually die entirely pretty soon?

I won't spend $100 for "just" the display but might if the board flakes out more.

No. The part likely need is the electronic control with the LED display. The part number you looked up looks to just the the trim and push buttons.

Unfortunately it is discontinued. There are a couple of places that will rebuild your original control board.
