Question about Maytag MMV4205 Microwave Oven
Our over the stove microwave oven displays the clock clearly, but the timer display has been dimming steadily over time and now is barely readable.
Sadly, the display tube is not available separately, so the only way to fix this is to replace the board, at a whopping $181.48!
One trick that helps is to remove the control panel assembly, take the circuit board out of the frame and very carefully wipe the front of the glass and the rear surface of the control panel frame's display window.
Use a soft cloth with alcohol-based (non-ammonia) window cleaner.
That will brighten it up quite a bit.
At our site, we now have a video available showing how to remove a typical control panel assembly in under 5 minutes.
Be sure to unplug the oven before you do any disassembly.
We're happy to help you and we'd appreciate your thoughtful rating of our answer.

Hi ssullivan013 - Here are some generics instructions that I found for the model number posted above. Hope the information is helpful.
Suppose you want to enter the correct time of day 12:30 (A.M or P.M.).
1. Touch Clock pad.
2. Enter time 1,2,3,0 and press CLOCK pad again
This is a 12 hour clock. If you attempt to enter an incorrect clock timer, ERROR will appear in the display. Touch the CLEAR/OFF pad and re-enter the time.
